Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the thrilling novels by Ben Coes:

“Ben Coes has created a hero who ranks with the protagonists in a Vince Flynn or Brad Thor thriller… The Last Refuge is a winner and will keep readers turning the pages.” ―Associated Press

“Terrific! A gripping story, compelling characters, a relentless pace, and nerve-wracking suspense.” ―Vince Flynn on Power Down

“Compelling characters, a wealth of technical detail, and ticking-clock suspense make [Independence Day] one of the year’s best thrillers.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“High concept meets high octane…Envision Clancy, Forsyth, and le Carre all writing in their prime…then kick in the booster…Coes blows the competition away.” ―Brad Thor on Coup d’Etat

“Coes is in the same league as Brad Thor and Vince Flynn, and this high-octane race against time will have plot-driven thriller readers unable to turn the pages fast enough.” ―Booklist (starred review) on Independence Day

“Action, international intrigue, romance―it doesn’t get any better.” ―San Jose Mercury News on The Last Refuge
