This third outsider had long brown hair and a beard and a mustache. I don't understand why this book is highly rated here. From the author of the critically acclaimed thriller Power Down comes the latest ripped-from-the-headlines novel featuring his indelible and indomitable protagonist, the unforgettable Dewey Andreas. It only happens in Hollywood. Rosenberg introduced me to in his recent series. Little by little, we learn why Andreas is hiding from terrorists in Australia and the huge price he has paid to protect his country.
Ben Coes has a great writing style. The first half was just 3 stars worth and I should give the book an overall rating of 4 stars but I loved the last leg so much, especially once the Israeli commandos got in the act, that I was literally kicking with excitement. India doesn't have presidential form of government. As the situation spins quickly out of control, it becomes clear that India is only days from resorting to a nuclear response, one that will have unimaginably disasterous results for the world at large. Until the day the agency turned against him and put out a kill-on-sight order.
With only hours remaining before the conflict reaches a deadly point of no return, the White House must find a way to shut it down immediately or risk the likelihood of a new global war. I wonder where he came up with names for the Indian and Pakistani characters. The last 150 pages were the kind you just couldn't stop reading. Lots of action like a Vnce Flynn, but an entirely different character, though just as fierce. I literally winced at times.
I much prefer the continuity between books, which Coes has mastered and Joel C. Dewey is no John Wells, he is not as thoughtful or multi-faceted. The scary thing is how real the situations are in this crazy world, but that is what makes these thrillers even more enjoyable. The political imaginings are terrifying. His mission: to remove the Pakistani president from power. Doch dies ist erst der Anfang einer beispiellosen Terrorserie. Tyler hires Sean and Michelle to solve the mystery surrounding his father.
Only thing I think drew away from this was the reader - you could hear him breath in right before he spoke after a while I did not notice it but it was distracting at first. But the battle has just begun. Ben is a master of suspense and painting a scene through words. He begins by getting rid of anyone threatening to him - as well as creating chaos in the region to keep the world's attention diverted. The story centers around Dewey Andreas and ex-Delta, who is drawn back into a pressing conflict between Pakistan and India.
Well, the architecture being a clever guy says that … The Lost Child is a riveting short story by Mulk Raj Anand. Binya is on seventh heaven and rarely closes it because she believes it looks charming when it is opened. With his ruthless employers on one side, his former friends on the other, and a doomed mission ahead, Court Gentry would kill to get out of this one alive. The author explores the implications of another war between India and Pakistan and how it will alter the geo-political scenario in the Indian sub continent. I'll be reading each new book Coes publishes.
He's the hero who shows up or gets dragged into a situation and then triumphs over impossible odds. The author's incomplete understanding of the relationship between the Pakistani military and political setup became more and more evident. . . Series hero Dewey Andreas, a former Delta Force officer who's been lying low in Australia, receives the call to assemble a small team of specialists and use whatever means necessary to get rid of the Pakistani president and install the U.
Coes, but that could never happen in the real world. I have never come across such exotic Indian and Pakistani names. If you can look past that you will be entertained! All-in-all, I thoroughly enjoyed Coup D'Etat. The protagonists kill a number of people without any compunction, and sometimes with relish. Worse, Coes seems unable to write more than a few pages about Dewey without admiring his manly physique and cold attitude. It begins with a hit gone wrong. His father was an Army fighting legend, and his brother is serving a life sentence for treason in a federal military prison.
