Read First Strike (Dewey Andreas, #6) Online Free - The violent terrorist group ISIS has launched a major military campaign to take over Syria. But as they commit more and more public atrocities, their sources for ammunition are drying up. However, their charismatic and tyrannical leader, Tristan Nazir, has a major card left to play, which will get a new secret shipment of arms underway.
Dewey Andreas is sent into the field to meet Mallory, the Milan CIA station chief who has explosive proof about the source of the terrorists group’s original funding. While ISIS operatives take out both Mallory and his source, Dewey escapes with the proof—the group’s original munitions were provided by a black-ops program from deep within the Pentagon itself.
The program unravels in time for the arms shipment to be stopped before it reaches its destination. But Isolda isn't finished. He launches a bold strike into the heart of America, sending a team to take over a dorm at Columbia University, capturing nearly 500 college students as hostages. Among those hostages is CIA Director Hector Calibrisi's daughter, Daisy. For every hour that the shipment of weapons is delayed, the radicals will publicly execute one student. A frontal assault will result in untold number of dead students. Sending the shipment will give Isolda and his followers the means to capture Syria and its resources, creating a terrorist run nation.
In a situation with no solutions, there remains only one option—Dewey Andreas.

This story seems to glorify death at the hands of terrorists. Readers are treated to blow by blow descriptions of butchery that even the good guys can't escape. Cold blooded, hopeless killings do not make for an interesting, exciting or rewarding story. 0 of 10 stars

First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, Ben Coes, and St. Martin's Press for providing me with a copy of this book, which allows me to provide you with this review.
In a great addition to his Dewey Andreas series, Coes offers a somewhat unique take on the ISIS obsession in thriller nov...

Dewey Andreas is human. His encounter against ISIS shows him as a human being who is afraid and is less than a bad ass. He fears the brutality seen from them and almost begs for bullet instead of being beheaded.
The plot of First Strike is a chilling possibility. The idea of terror cells being abl...

I’ve noted before that the entire genre of military-based, anti-terrorism novels…those novels “ripped from today’s headlines”…has grown very tiresome for me. It just seems like they are mostly all the same. As a result, I have limited my reading of them to only a handful of authors today (and som...

I'm a long-time Ben Coes fan. I've read every book in the Dewey Andreas series--loved every one of them. He always includes some sort of military-terrorist-weapon detail that rings true even when I know nothing about the topic. Here's how he describes a shipment of illicit weapons being shipped t...

I've had this book for awhile and have been dying to get to it. So now that my Historical Fiction challenge is over for the summer, this was the first book for me starting out the fall. I love this genre and I love this author. This is my 4th book by this author and it happens to be the 6th one i...

REVIEW OF AUDIOBOOK; JULY 1, 2016
Narrator: Peter Hermann
First Strike was worth waiting for. Every excruciating minute since Independence Day, the previous installment. The bad news is that I now have to wait another year before I get my next Dewey Andreas fix.
In this book, Coes has the US creatin...

Ben Coes is at the top of his game here, delivering the best Dewey Andreas novel yet. This is a very interesting, enjoyable, and informative concept for a novel. Ben Coes always writes like an expert on the subject of military tactics and espionage, and he has obviously done his homework on the i...

This was a book down memory lane for me. Too true Carmen Hall at Columbia was a very ugly building both inside and out. This was scary how terrorists could possibly take over and plan such an assault. I remember a freshman was killed during our orientation, so it was a vulnerable time at the univ...
