The latest in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Dewey Andreas series.
North Korea, increasingly isolated from most of the rest of the world, is led by an absolute dictator and a madman with a major goal―he's determined to launch a nuclear attack on the United States. While they have built, and continue to successfully test nuclear bombs, North Korea has yet to develop a ballistic missile with the range necessary to attack America. But their missiles are improving, reaching a point where the U.S. absolutely must respond.
What the U.S. doesn't know is that North Korea has made a deal with Iran. In exchange for effective missiles from Iran, they will trade nuclear triggers and fissionable material. An exchange, if it goes through, that will create two new nuclear powers, both with dangerous plans.
Dewey Andreas, still reeling from recent revelations about his own past, is ready to retire from the CIA. But he's the only available agent with the skills to carry out the CIA's plan to stop North Korea. The plan is to inject a singular designer poison into the head of the North Korean military and in exchange for the nuclear plans, provide him with the one existing dose of the antidote. But it goes awry when Dewey manages to inject a small amount of the poison into himself. Now, to survive, Dewey must get into North Korea and access the antidote and, while there, thwart the nuclear ambitions of both North Korea and Iran. And he has less than 24 hours to do so―in the latest thriller from Ben Coes.

From the Publisher
"If you’re not exhausted by the time you reach the last page, you weren’t paying attention. There is enough action and casualties in Bloody Sunday for multiple thrillers... Masterful!" ―Bookreporter
"Excellent...the best entry in the series so far." ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Readers will have a tough time putting this one down." ―Library Journal
"Coes has written another outstanding black-ops thriller that holds readers with believable characters, a charismatic lead, and compelling narrative drive." ―Booklist
"His boldest, most daring thriller yet." ―The Real Book Spy
"Wildly entertaining... Coes takes a terrifyingly plausible scenario ― an Iran-North Korea deal that puts the U.S. in the crosshairs ― and ratchets up the suspense with a countdown to annihilation. Dewey Andreas is the hero these times demand, and Bloody Sunday is a heart-stopping thrill ride." ―Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Suspicion and The Switch

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I'm always impatiently awaiting the next chapter in the Dewey Andreas saga as it has moved to the top of my list of SOG/CIA covert ops series such as Mitch Rapp, Kolt Raynor, etc.
This was a thrilling, moving read throughout, and I'm ready for the next one already.. if Dellenbaugh can coax Dewey into service once again.. although I'm sure Jenna' s possible entwinement with the Russians and a budding relationship with Dewey leaves that door agape.
The only thing in the book that made me call B.S. was when Dewey jumped from a low flying helo at 250km/h without a deployed chute into a tree canopy and suffered zero injuries.
COME ON, BEN !! Not even our Dewey.
Still.. give me more, please !

The storey line has merit, the characters are as well defined as ever, but the issue for me is the ending. For the most part the book stuck with wild action but at least plausible, the ending was anything but. Sorry but loads of diplomates turning up in a situation as described, without causing issues, is just pushing the boundaries of possible too far
I will stick with the series Dewey is a great character and a small plot twist at the end is obviously going to become a major story line later, will be interested to see where that goes
It all got a bit Commando or Rambo towards the end but having North Korea as the protagonist worked well.
If you have read previous entries in the series and enjoyed them then you won’t regret picking this one up.
