About the Author

Praise for

COUP DÉTAT

“High concept meets high octane in this brilliantly executed thriller. Envision Clancy, Forsyth, and le Carré all writing in their prime…then kick in the boosters. Coup dÉtat is fantastic and Ben Coes blows the competition away!”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor

 

“This exciting sequel to Power Down explores an all-too-plausible conflict…the plot sizzles with action, and the details have an authentic ring that put this thriller a cut above the pack.”

—Publishers Weekly

 

“Will keep you up at night—first with the titillation of a great read, then with dread that Bens plot might not be all that imaginary. A sumptuous dessert for a thriller reader.”—Brian Haig, author of The Capitol Game

Power Down

Power Down is terrific! With a gripping story, compelling characters, a relentless pace, and nerve-wracking suspense, Power Down is one of the must-read thrillers of the year. Dont miss this debut of novelist Ben Coes and the introduction of Dewey Andreas—youll devour this one and wait anxiously for their return.”—Vince Flynn, New York Times bestselling author of Pursuit of Honor

“Coes pumps new heat, blood, and flat-out action into a well-worn premise—terrorists are out to break America by attacking its energy resources—in his frighteningly plausible thriller debut.”

—Publishers Weekly

I loved Power Down! Its a fresh, exciting thriller and the action scenes are big, vivid and authentic, at times even breathtaking. An impressive debut for Ben Coes. I was blown away.”

—David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Creepers and creator of Rambo

“A ripping thriller from an exciting new novelist. Power Down kept me glued, turning the pages.  Lots of action, a terrific hero, and a slimy villain—thrillers don't get any better.”—Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of The Disciple

Power Down marks the emergence of a major new talent in the political thriller genre—no small feat in a field already packed with big names like Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and David Baldacci. In terms of sheer entertainment value, author Ben Coes and his hero, the unusually but memorably named Dewey Andreas, are easily and immediately competitive with the very best the thriller field has to offer.”—Fiction Addict

“One of those rare, glue-in-your-seat books. Sit down, pick it up, and start reading. You arent going anywhere for anything until you finish it.”—Bookreporter.com
