Deep within the Pentagon, a covert, multi-billion arms-for-influence program was created. The objective was to protect the United States and its allies from terrorist acts by secretly enabling a hand-picked man to emerge as the most powerful leader in the Middle East. But the charismatic Tristan Nazir double-crosses America, twisting the program for his own violent ends to create ISIS. Now America is at great risk.
Elite operative Dewey Andreas is sent to Syria to retrieve details about the source of ISIS’s funding but his cover is blown mid-operation and chaos erupts in the streets of Damascus. Trapped and outnumbered, Dewey manages to send proof of the awful truth—unknown at even the highest levels in the government—that ISIS’s munitions were indeed provided by America itself.
This information arrives in time to for the U.S. to cut off a final arms shipment before it reaches ISIS. But the vicious Nazir, is far from finished. He launches a bold strike into the heart of America, sending a terrorist cell to take over a dorm at Columbia University, capturing hundreds of college students as hostages. For every hour that the shipment of weapons is withheld, the terrorists will publicly execute one student. The potential loss of life is intolerable. A frontal assault is impossible. Releasing the shipment is unthinkable. There is nowhere to turn…
In a situation with no solutions, there remains only one option—Dewey Andreas.

First Strike - Seven Lives
Book was good. A lot of action. Something that unfortunately could become reality. Poor Dewey got himself into quite a few jams. Fortunately he must have 7 lives. I think he might have used up 5 or 6 in this book. I liked the action and I liked the ending.
Best Coes yet!
Big fan of Ben Coes. This is his best yet. You won't skim a paragraph. If you like Vince Flynn, you'll love this.
This is a must read. We can use modern-day fiction books like this to better educate ourselves about the world around us. The plot take a little to develop but once the action picks up, you won't be able to put the book down. Great work!
