Introducing a major new thriller writer--in the vein of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor--and an electrifying character, Dewey Andreas.

A major North American hydroelectric dam is blown up and the largest off-shore oil field in this hemisphere is destroyed in a brutal, coordinated terrorist attack. But there was one factor that the terrorists didn't take into account when they struck the Capitana platform off the coast of Colombia--slaughtering much of the crew and blowing up the platform--and that was the Capitana crew chief Dewey Andreas. Dewey, former Army Ranger and Delta, survives the attack, rescuing as many of his men as possible. But the battle has just begun.
While the intelligence and law enforcement agencies scramble to untangle these events and find the people responsible, the mysterious figure of Alexander Fortuna--an agent embedded into the highest levels of American society and business--sets into play the second stage of these long-planned attacks. The only fly in the ointment is Dewey Andreas--who is using all his long-dormant skills to fight his way off the platform, then out of Colombia and back to the U.S., following the trail of terrorists and operatives sent to stop him. Power Down is a gripping, compelling debut thriller from Ben Coes, a powerful new author, an amazing talent certain to join the ranks of the genre's finest writers.

I am delighted to have discovered Ben Coes. His character, Dewey, reminds me of Jack Reacher. A terrific read and of course I went right online to buy the sequels as soon as I finished.

My first reading experience for Dewey's works. Really enjoyed sticking to my e-readers. Climax after climax kept me tense and enjoyed reading. Immediately went for his next book. A perfect writer worth following.

An Excellent Book. Even though it is fiction, the story line is so realistic, you feel as though it could actually happen. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a thriller.
