“Coes blows the competition away”Brad Thor
Cloud, the code name a high-level Russian hacker, has acquired a nuclear weapon. It’s an older bomb from the USSR’s Cold War arsenal with the power to devastate a major city. Fueled by a dark and personal vendetta, Cloud has put it onto an anonymous trawler, piloted by jihadists, headed straight to America.
“Explosive from beginning to end.”Bookreporter
Dewey Andreas, a former Delta working as an agent for the CIA, is still grieving the murder of his fiancée. He’s lost his focus, his edgeand the confidence of his superiors. But when an overseas mission to capture Cloud goes awry, Dewey becomes America’s last hope of putting a stop to the bomb. Now it’s up to Dewey to put his past behind him and risk everything to find one of the world’s most elusive enemies…or witness a terrorist attack timed to coincide with the country’s biggest holiday: Independence Day.
“Coes is in the same league as Brad Thor and Vince Flynn, and this high-octane race against time will have plot-driven thriller readers unable to turn the pages fast enough.”

This arrived yesterday, one day early, and I was just going to read the first chapter. But as with all Coes books, I couldn't put it down. I've read them all and this is his best one yet. It grabs you and never lets up. It's about Russia, cyber terrorism, and nuclear weapons. It's current. I learned as I was reading. And as always, Dewey is wonderful. For my money he's the best hero I've ever seen.
I listened to the audio version, and Peter Hermann is perfection (again) in Ben Coes newest addition to his Dewey Andreas series. It's great!
Oh my goodness. I had to sit up in bed because I couldn't stand it any longer! I could feel the fingernails grabbing the cement floor and sliding. I was talking to the audio book! saying "come on, you can do it" - amazing. This is one of the best books I have ever read. Thank you Ben Coes.
Independence Day was one of those books I couldn't put down. Fantastic story evolution and among the tops of his stories, all of which I've read. However I was really really disappointed when I got to page 400 and found Ben first describing the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs as a Brigadier General, then the Chief of Naval Operations as a Rear Admiral ! Shame on you Ben. Both positions are 4-star positions.
I love Ben's books and this one was one of the best. I could't put it down.
