Publisher's Summary

With time running out to stop the nuclear destruction of Tel Aviv, Dewey Andreas must defeat his most fearsome opponent yet.
Off a quiet street in Brooklyn, New York, Israeli Special Forces commander Kohl Meir is captured by operatives of the Iranian secret service, who smuggle Meir back to Iran, where he is imprisoned, tortured, and prepared for a show trial. What they don’t know is that Meir was in New York to recruit Dewey Andreas for a secret operation.
Meir had been tipped off that Iran had finally succeeded in building their first nuclear weapon, one they were planning to use to attack Israel. His source was a high-level Iranian government official and his proof was a photo of the bomb itself. Dewey Andreas, a former Army Ranger and Delta, owes his life to Meir and his team of Israeli commandos. Now, to repay his debt, Dewey has to attempt the impossible - to both rescue Meir from one of the world’s most secure prisons and to find and eliminate Iran’s nuclear bomb before it’s deployed - all without the help or sanction of Israel or America (at the near certain risk of detection by Iran).
Unfortunately, Dewey’s first moves have caught the attention of Abu Paria, the brutal and brilliant head of VEVAK, the Iranian secret service. Now Dewey has to face off against, outwit, and outfight an opponent with equal cunning, skill, and determination, with the fate of millions hanging in the balance.

Last Refuge but hopefully not the last of Dewey!

Wow! These Dewey Andreas adventures just keep getting better and better. Narration was great, plot was awesome and the pace of action was perfect. I know there's not a real person named Dewey Andreas but this book seems so REAL! Love the way the author structures his plots and brings all the thread in the book to neat and satisfying conclusions. Highly recommend this listen to anyone who enjoys thrillers. Great listen! Solid 5 ***** stars all the way.

Excellent Listen

What about Peter Hermann’s performance did you like?

Glad they returned to the original narrator from the first book. He captures the inner voice and nuances of Andreas, Jessica and Calabreze well.


Any additional comments?

I found this series after listening to Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series and Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series. I like to find an author who can develop characters and then take them through various plots. In addition to the previous mentioned two, DeMille's John Corey and John Sanford's Virgil Flowers and Lucas Davenport come to mind.

When an author can create such a realistic character...well the reading/listening audience is in his palm so to say. Excellent and relevant plot lines by Coes...I hope he keeps Andreas going for some time to come.
