Although Ben Coes resorts to a standard revenge plot to propel “Eye for an Eye” http://www.amazon.com/books/dp/125000716X, the 4th Dewey Andreas novel http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/4095460.Ben_Coes, this military action novel is an absolute adrenaline rush.
For pure action packed thrillers, there is nothing standard about the Dewey Andreas series. From a hockey game with the President of the United States, to the plains of Argentina, a party in Europe and an airport China, the action is non-stop.
The United States and its allies have decided to drop the house on Bhang, a leader of Chinese intelligence by embarrassing him in front of the Chinese Premier, but the plan backfires when Bhang thinks the ploy was hatched up by Andreas. Bhang dispatches a hit squad to Argentina to assassinate Andreas. Although Andreas survives, there is collateral damage and Andreas becomes a one man army seeking to bring the war directly to Bhang.
Meanwhile Bhang is on the hunt for Andreas as well sending more hit squads all of over to hunt him and his family down. If even half these assassins were actually around Europe, the world would be a much scarier place, but in these blood soaked pages its full throttle forward.
Spanning continents and with a high enough body count to fill a in ground pool, “Eye for an Eye” is a bang bang read.
Even the over the top ending, in a scene right out of the movie Face Off http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119094/ is just another part of this fun ride.
A great read for the beach or for any fan of action novels.
