"Intense and gripping...Coes' name should be on the lips of every reader who enjoys Vince Flynn and the Brads (Taylor and Thor)." —Booklist (starred review) on Trap the Devil
Only one man stands between a powerful cabal planning an invisible coup of the U.S. government and their brutal goals—Dewey Andreas.
A group of some of the most powerful people in the government, the military, and the private sector, has begun a brutal plan to quietly take over the reins of the U.S. government. They’ve begun to remove the people who stand in their way—and replace them with their own sympathizers and puppets. They’ve already taken out the Speaker of the House—whose death was made to look like an accidental drowning—and the president and vice president are next. Once they have their own people in place, they plan to start a bloody, brutal war on an unimaginable scale.
On restricted duty while he recovers from injuries incurred on a previous mission, Dewey Andreas is sent to Paris by CIA Director Hector Calibrisi. The Secretary of State is going there for secret talks, and Dewey is to be an extra layer of security above the State Department team. But what should be an easy mission couldn’t go more wrong. The cabal has sent in a hit man to take out the Secretary of State and lay the blame for this murder at the feet of Dewey himself.
With the Secretary of State dead, shot by Dewey’s weapon, Dewey is on the run and out in the cold, desperately trying to unravel the plot before the conspirators succeed in killing millions of innocents.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In Ben Coes’ pell-mell thriller, covert agent Dewey Andreas is all that stands between the U.S. and a fascist takeover. After he’s set up as a fall guy for the secretary of state’s assassination, Dewey is trapped in Europe and tested to the limit of his capabilities as he fights to take down a shadowy cabal intent on overthrowing the federal government. Trap the Devil is a feast of high-voltage action sequences and unsettling villains that kept us sweating all the way through.

In today’s political world the events described in this book could almost be described as “almost true”.
The book is pack with excitement from start to finish.
Trap the devil. Ben Coes
For me there was several aspects of this book that were very disappointing. The lack of cohesiveness between one chapter to the next as if the readers are just ignorant. In one chapter they’re putting a woman on a ventilator and the very next chapter they’re putting an oxygen mask on her disregarding the fact she’s already on a ventilator. (Spoiler alert)The whole scene on the train was comical especially the ending as he escapes on skis. Launching out the side of a speeding train at 90 degrees in the direction the train is traveling and suffering no ill affects or bad landing. I’ve done a lotta of skiing and I’ve never been able to snow ski at 50 mph sideways, specially in deep snow. The ending was totally predictable. Also the lack of knowledge about weapons, weapon handling and there capabilities. Getting that right is low hanging fruit.
Trap the Devil
Another great Dewey book. Do yourself a favor and read them all.
