I have to admit, that it took me awhile to discover Ben Coes and his wonderful Dewey Andreas series. This was mainly due to the uninspiring cover of "Power Down". Finally, between books and looking for something new, I picked up Power Down and then, I couldn't put it down. Coes is that good. There is a depth to his writing and his characters that just shouldn't be allowed until you haveva few books out. Some never reach this depth. Which brings us to "Eye for an Eye". Fourth in the series the book takes off with a bang and never lets up. It continues the storyline from Coup d'Etat and sends it into overdrive. Without spoiling the story, Dewey takes a tremendous loss and declares war on the PRC and a slightly power hungry Chinese Minister of State Security. There are twists, turns, and surprises. The action sequences are among the best written in thriller fiction. I can't recommend this series enough. Coes is part of the new guard. Along with Marc Cameron and Mark Greaney, they are catching up to the grandmasters of the genre like Silva and Forsyth. Start at the beginning with Power Down and fasten you seat belt.

It is an interesting, action packed story. But it has two negatives that hurt it's rating in my opinion. First, Many of the plot scenarios are stretched beyond the realm of reality. For example, is it remotely possible that a private jet which is flying on a flight plan to Moscow can fly instead to the main airport of China, unannounced, land there, the hero get off the plane, shoot a man on the tarmac, put his body on another plane, blow that plane up, get back on his plane and fly away without being challenged by Chinese airspace control? Hardly. Second, the dialogue in the book is laced from beginning to end with the "f" word. My reaction to that can be summed up in one word: Why? The story is good and exciting. Why ruin it with the consistent use of a word many find offensive?

I have never given 5 stars to any author or book much less both. I have read a couple thousand books in my 64 years. Never have I read one that covered all emotions as much as EYE for an EYE. Rips your heart out then standing waiting for the cavalry charge. Dont even know if they will show up in time or not. Then the totally unexpected (was there all the time). Stand, cheer, salute then cry for our true heroes. Yes I loved this book. Fiction? Doesnt matter. Just a great read. Ben, from Texas, Thanks.

One of the best books I've read lately.  It kept me up late at night because I didn't want to put it down.  I look forward to seeing more Dewey Andreas.

As with all of the Dewey Andreas books, current global terrorism issues form the basis for this book. Is Dewey bigger than life? Sure, but so are the issues faced on a minute to minute basis by our country. Each of these books has stretched my naive mind about our continual and increasing vulnerability as well as the fragility of all our comforts and rights enjoyed by all every day. Coes books are great reads and I can't wait for the next one.

A great spy adventure story that makes you think about possible consequences of our immense debt. Everyone in Congress should read it!

Within this entertaining fictional novel you will find answers to international policies by many governments that are going on today. Agent Dewey Andreas, on respite from the demands of international espionage, is a sought target by China. Dewey escapes death and now becomes the hunter as much as the hunted. Dewey is angry and wants payback... even at the cost of his life. This is a great addition to the Dewey Andreas Series that I enjoy from author Ben Coes. Packed full of adventure, suspense, surprise and intrigue, any spy novel reader should enjoy. The ending was a little bizarre, entertaining, but a little far-fetched, otherwise a good solid read. Two areas in the book to keep an "eye" on (sic) are technological eavesdropping, and international debt. Both subjects are made simple here to understand, and we are left to determine if they are real or not.

One of the best and most exciting books I've ever read!! It'll leave you breathless. I love all of Ben's books, and each one is better than the last. Mr. Coes is a phenomenal writer.

Ben Coes does it again. We are learning so much more about Dewey's past. So much of what makes him a great protector of our country is driven by the sad and unfortunate circumstances of his past. His bad fortune continues in this book and drives him even harder. I hope in a future book, he will be able to find peace and happiness.

Another great one by Ben Coes!  Thrilling from start to finish. I purchased the audio version and Peter Hermann is an outstanding narrator.

If you're a fan of the balls-to-the-wall hero, then this book will reward. Although typical unbreakable protagonist, it's fast paced with twists good enough to keep turning pages with suspense.

The 4th installment of the Dewey series was a nice change of scene. Global bad guys from a world power and Dewey with a grudge. All 4 books are very good, when does the movie come out?

As with all of the Andreas series, this book was consistently entertaining start to finish. However, the early plot "surprise" was an unfortunate choice that echoes other similar series in this genre. If a different approach had been taken, this series would have retained a unique quality that made it more interesting.

The "f" word in every other sentence does not make this work more "authentic" or "gritty". It reads as simply childish. An outlandish plot that streatches any level of believability even by thriller standards doesn't help either. Thumbs down.

Reading a series with the same character is what I like to do, Dewey is a bad ass. This one and the others in the series are well worth reading. Hard to stop reading.
