Publisher's Summary

Dewey Andreas, former Delta and current intelligence agent, is sidelined. Still drowning in grief after the tragic murder of his fiancee, Dewey has seemingly lost his focus, his edge, and the confidence of his superiors. A high-level Russian hacker, known only as Cloud, is believed to be behind a series of major terror operations, and the mission is to capture and render Cloud harmless. At the same time, a backup team is sent after the only known associate of Cloud, a ballerina believed to be his girlfriend. Unwilling to sit out the mission as ordered, Dewey defies his superiors and goes rogue, surreptitiously following and tracking the two teams. What should be a pair of simple snatch-and-grab operations goes horribly wrong - both teams are ambushed and wiped out. Only through the unexpected intervention of Dewey is the backup operation salvaged. Cloud's girlfriend reveals a shocking secret - a plot so audacious and deadly that the masterminds behind it would risk anything and kill anybody to prevent its exposure. It's a plot that, in less than three days, will completely remake the world's political landscape and put at risk every single person in the Western world. On the run, with no backup and with only three days left, Dewey Andreas must unravel and stop this plot or see everything destroyed. A plot that goes live on July Fourth - Independence Day.

What other book might you compare Independence Day to and why?

The other Dewey Andreas books! Ben Coes is on par with Brad Thor, Mark Greaney and other well known authors of the same genre.

Any additional comments?

This was such a good book. I've been waiting for it to come out on Audible and checking for it since it came out almost a year ago. It was worth the wait! This had action packed tension from beginning to end. Peter Hermann did a great job narrating, using different tones and inflections so characters are easily distinguishable. The story itself is plausible even if Dewey himself would have to be 1/2 Superman to survive some of the stunts described but hey - this is Dewey Andreas!! The story itself involves a genius computer hacker, his ballerina girlfriend, a nuclear bomb and Dewey. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but can you guess who wins?
If you found this helpful please indicate so. I base many of my own purchases on reviews and I like to let the person know I appreciate their opinion.

Dewey Andreas is Finally Back!

I've been waiting with a fiery anticipation for the release of Independence Day; I'm pleased to announce that I was not disappointed.

Independence Day is a familiar tale of jihadists on a mission to explode a nuclear bomb on American soil that would rival the devastation of 911. The downside of being a fan of this genre is repeatedly reading some variation of this plot - which is why I couldn't give the story 5 stars. Despite it's lack of originality, I was thoroughly entertained from start to finish.

We see a slightly different, vulnerable Dewey on the surface as he's still very much grieving the tragic loss of his fiance. But it is evident that he's still same fearless avenger at his core. Ben Coes has a knack for taking the time to set the stage and build the tension while slowly reeling you in and then suddenly without any warning you find yourself on a wild ride with Dewey Andreas at the wheel and there's no road map or traffic signs. It's really quite exhilarating.

Mr. Coes is also a master at mercilessly putting his hero through the ringer. At times, it seems that Dewey survives - thrives, actually - just from the sheer force of will. He is at his best when his back is against the wall with nothing to rely on except pure instinct and the axioms that were undoubtedly ingrained in him during his military training.

As always, Peter Hermann does a great job narrating. He has a great voice for this genre, his accents are pretty good and he's a great actor. No complaints here.

Happy reading!
