"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 a powerful new author, an amazing talent certain to join the ranks of the genre's finest writers.

Review by Library Journal (2010-08-01)

Massive terrorist attacks on America not only kill hundreds but throw the global economy into chaos. The terrorists are Middle Eastern, but many have been deeply imbedded in Western society for years, including their resident mastermind. Dewey Andreas, a former Special Forces soldier who had become chief of a major oil rig in the Caribbean, survives an attack on his rig and begins to take down the terrorists who killed his crew.

Verdict: Timing is everything, and debut author Coes has the good fortune to have written about a topic that concerns everyone-the vulnerability of our energy supply, including offshore oil platforms. As a hero, Andreas is a little too good to be true. He shrugs off major wounds, performs surgery on himself, will not bleed to death, and never misses with gun or knife. Regardless, this well-written thriller will appeal to fans of Vince Flynn and Brad Thor.

Review by Library Journal (2011-01-01)

This debut thriller from former White House speech writer Coes (www.bencoes.com)-one of the most visceral, gut-wrenching, blood-soaked, and flat-out brutal novels currently on the market-will have audiences gasping for air right up until the very end. A series of terrorist attacks on American energy resources is driving the country into a state of panic. Only one man, Dewey Andreas, seems to have half a chance at stopping some of the carnage, and he is being simultaneously hunted by the terrorists and the government.

Actor/narrator Peter Hermann (Private) reads in a deep, flat voice some listeners may initially find grating but will soon realize is essential to carrying off the intensity this novel demands. They will appreciate, too, that Hermann ultimately manages to bring to life a hero who has no hesitation in killing and who is suspicious of nearly everyone who tries to help. Well done, Coes and Hermann both-don't make us wait too long for the next appearance of this dynamic character. An essential acquisition.

Book description

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 a powerful new author, an amazing talent certain to join the ranks of the genre’s finest writers.
