Former SEAL and Delta force operator Dewey Andreas owes his life to Kohl Meir and his team of Israeli commandos. So when Meir shows him a photo of what appears to be a nuclear device with the words 'Goodbye Tel Aviv' written in Farsi on the side Andreas realizes that repaying his debt to Meir, his team and to Israel is going to take more than a simple 'thank you'.
Meir and Andreas devise a high risk, high stakes plan using leaked information from officials inside Iran and dissidents from groups outside the country to try to find and hijack the device before it is deployed. But from their very first move, they catch the attention of the brilliant and brutally tough Abu Paria, the Iranian intelligence chief, who takes Meir hostage. Andreas must face off against an opponent with equal cunning, skill, and determination while the one man who might be able to help is chained to the wall of an Iranian prison.
Can Andreas prevent the nuclear bomb obliterating Israel's largest city and thereby avoid a world catastrophe . . . ?
An action-packed thriller from internationally bestselling author, Ben Coes, The Last Refuge is an explosive addition to the Dewey Andreas series.
Readers fond of unrealistic bravado and female intelligence operatives with outstanding physical assets will best appreciate Coes's third Dewey Andreas novel (after 2011's Coup d'Etat). The events of the previous book, in which former Delta Force member Andreas helped depose the president of Pakistan, shape a predictable effort to stop Iran from nuking Israel. Andreas must not only avert nuclear war in the Middle East but also somehow rescue kidnap victim Kohl Meir (a great-grandson of Israeli PM Golda Meir), who saved Andreas's life in Pakistan, from a well-guarded prison in Iran. Steamy if stock exposition (e.g., "He looked at her panties, with their thin lace edges, then Jessica's stomach, toned but not muscular, with the tiniest bit of voluptuous curve, above it her big breasts, the nape of her neck, finally her eyes, which still held the same contemptuous stare") makes up only in part for the lack of genuinely suspenseful moments or surprises. 100,000 first printing.
