This book was so fast paced and action packed with lot's of suspense and thrills that I couldn't put the book down. It is definitely a book the reader will be talking about for quite a while afterwards. I am very happy to have won such a great book on Goodreads book give-away. Big thumbs up to Ben Coes and I look forward to his next title.

You'll need a spreadsheet to keep track of all the characters. Apparently the author couldn't decide which of the many characters he wanted to be the hero so he devoted equal time to several of them. In sevetal spots you'll wonder where the main character (Dewey Andreas) is and what he's doing. I won't be back for more from this author.

    Power Down┬┐ is more of an action adventure book than what I woul

    Power Down” is more of an action adventure book than what I would call a thriller. The book goes into a lot of background and plot development which is nice but it’s at the expense of some action. When the fights on, it’s good but when it’s not, the can drone on for a little bit.
    The writing is excellent and the plot is interesting but it can be a bit silly at times. For example near the end the terrorist goes on and one about why he’s doing what he is. Year of conviction and teachings engrained into him and then Dewy says one hokey line and all of a sudden the terrorist completely changes his mind.

    If you’re looking for a page turning thrill a minute where the hero is constantly under the gun (more of what I was looking for) you might want to look elsewhere but if you’re looking for something a bit more balanced with a lot of (right leaning) back room political dealing I’d recommend that you give this a try.
