Independence Day: A Dewey Andreas Novel Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Dewey Andreas, former Delta and current intelligence agent, is sidelined. Still drowning in grief after the tragic murder of his fiancee, Dewey has seemingly lost his focus, his edge, and the confidence of his superiors. A high-level Russian hacker, known only as Cloud, is believed to be behind a series of major terror operations, and the mission is to capture and render Cloud harmless. At the same time, a backup team is sent after the only known associate of Cloud, a ballerina believed to be his girlfriend. Unwilling to sit out the mission as ordered, Dewey defies his superiors and goes rogue, surreptitiously following and tracking the two teams. What should be a pair of simple snatch-and-grab operations goes horribly wrong - both teams are ambushed and wiped out. Only through the unexpected intervention of Dewey is the backup operation salvaged. Cloud's girlfriend reveals a shocking secret - a plot so audacious and deadly that the masterminds behind it would risk anything and kill anybody to prevent its exposure. It's a plot that, in less than three days, will completely remake the world's political landscape and put at risk every single person in the Western world. On the run, with no backup and with only three days left, Dewey Andreas must unravel and stop this plot or see everything destroyed. A plot that goes live on July Fourth - Independence Day.

In this novel, a young Russian computer genius has cracked CIA's protection software, and has had free access to all of CIA's data networks. In addition he has acquired an old 1950's era atomic weapon and has plans to take revenge on the USA for the murder of his father and mother. Dewey, is thrust into the middle of this struggle. The plot has enough twists and turns and interesting characters to keep the reader involved.
The books in this series are "fun reading" and not fine literature by any stretch of anybody's imagination. One must suspend all thoughts based in reality as to the amount of punishment the human body can sustain and still function - but, what else would you expect of someone who is just molecule short of being a "Super-hero".
I am now convinced that the author does not know the difference between the words "bring" and "take". There are at least three instances where he uses "bring" when he should have used "take” (pages 5, 274, and 333 in the paperback edition). To explain - "bring” is used when the item being moved is coming to the location of the speaker, "take" is used when the intended final location of the item is elsewhere. This type of error should, in my opinion, be caught in proof reading. This is not a new complaint of mine with this author - see my other reviews of books in this series.
The author has one of the characters in the book use "Channel 16" to place a "Mayday" call, requesting a replacement fuel pump. First off an ocean going vessel such as "Lonely Fisherman" would not be using short range VHF (maximum range 60 miles) for such a transmission, and secondly, the correct transmission would have been "Pan-Pan" not "Mayday for such a call about needing a fuel pump. Since 2007, EPIRBs have been the only legally accepted distress signaling. And the US Coast Guard, along with most of the rest of the world, stopped monitoring anything except EPIRBs on February 1, 2009. This switch away from the old 500 Hz Morse Code channel was part of the changes in the SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) regulations - which also discontinued having a full time radio operator monitoring the distress channel. One can debate the changes, but cost efficiency won out over, in my opinion, safety. But, that is a subject for another conversation - but, as far as this book goes - the author should have done a little more research before making this a key turning point in the plot.
At least in this novel the author has stopped trying to describe many different types of handgun, and getting many of the facts wrong, as in the prior novels in this series.
An enjoyable book - just accept it for what it is - fun escapism.
Dewey has less of the spy elements this time and sticks mostly to action of various types all taking place in Russia.The Russian hacker is pitted against a US good guy, but CIA independent cyber warrior which unfortunately is largely irrelevant to the mission. As a beach read, this is a tasty morsel that also serves to reinstate Dewey solidly back in his true form.
1. A brigadier general can’t be chairman of the joint chiefs
2. The weapons related segments need a good polishing by a knowledgeable armorer.
In general a great read
