Andreas, former Delta and now CIA operative, is given what at first appears to be a simple assignment - accompany the US Secretary of State to Paris as an added layer of protection. When the Secretary is assassinated with Andreas' weapon, he is on the run while trying to unravel a plan decades in the making to take down the US government. If a mysterious woman who has recently escaped from an asylum in France is to be believed, the threat is coming from inside the highest levels of the US intelligence community in an operation known as "Order 6."
Coes is truly one of the most gifted writers of espionage thrillers today - as author Brad Thor sums up on the book jacket, "Envision Clancy, Forsyth and le Carre all writing in their prime."
Coes delivers intrigue and suspense on every page, building to an explosive ending that leaves just enough unanswered questions to set the stage for the next Dewey Andreas adventure but not so many that the reader feels unsatisfied.
For those familiar with the series, you'll recognize characters from previous novels - Katie Foxx, Rob Tacoma, CIA director Hector Calibrisi, President Dellenbaugh, Nebuchar Fortuna.
For those who are new to Coes/Andreas (as I was until a year ago), each novel, while continuing a core cast of characters, can be read on its own so feel free to jump in anytime. When necessary, Coes deftly adds in a brief backstory without weighing down the action for those already familiar with a character or past plot reference.
Trap the Devil is a race-against-the-clock page turner that already has me anxiously awaiting Coes' next Dewey Andreas installment.
From the moment I started this I couldn't stop I just wanted to race to the ending. I was on the edge of my seat from the word go.
A huge conspiracy to take over the government is in motion and Dewey is being framed for the murder of the Secretary of State. But Dewey is smarter than the average bear..lol In this story you are going to feel like Dewey is taking you along for the ride with him. It feels like we get more insight into his mind. And I believe the reason for this is Coes writing.
I'm glad Ben Coes is not cranking out more than one book a year because if he were it would hinder the great writing style he has developed for our much loved characters in Dewey's stories. Coes has done a great job with the growth of these characters and they are smooth as silk.
If you haven't read any of these books your missing out on a great experience. I recommend this to one and all. Happy Reading!! And Ben Coes Thanks for sharing your talent, heart, and soul with us.~Your Faithful Reader

The book begins with a series of flashbacks the first one a terrorist attack at a Madrid train station which among others kills Charles Bruner’s nine-year-old daughter. The second to a meeting at CIA headquarters Langley Virginia, setting out a covert programme named Order Six, housed inside state, beyond the parameters of protecting the president without the restrictions of the pentagon and CIA, using only elite soldiers from Coronado, Bragg and the farm, a pre-emptive, of the books undocumented, lethal outside the lines black on black team, run by Charles Bruner.
But now decades later Order Six has gone rouge with an inner circle of 2 joint chiefs of staff, 3 cabinet sectaries, more than 2 dozen high ranking officials inside President Dellenbaugh’s administration, along with members of the military and the private sector, all loyal to the vision of Bruner’s American dream, wanting to kill everyone who gets in their way, and replace them with their own people, a sort of shadow government in waiting. The speaker of the house is their first victim killed while duck hunting in Georgia, with their own man becoming 3rd inline to the presidency.
Dewey Andreas on light duties after being stabbed and almost killed by Sirham el-Khan on the roof of Columbia university, is sent to see a shrink in order to understand what he’s been through and to get back into operational duties, is asked by Hector Calibrisi to accompany the US secretary of state to France for secret talks with Iran. But Dewey is framed for the murder of the secretary of state his colt .45 M1911A1 found at the scene.
Dewey is on the run from the authorities trying to find a woman with all the answers about Order Six, before they can kill her and set the scene for Charles Bruner’s endgame to kill the President and vice President, put his own man in charge and kill millions of people, to make up for his daughter’s death.
Dewey is helped along the way by Katie Fox and Rob Tacoma, all the while being hunted by Iranian agents after previously stealing their only nuclear weapon and Nebuchar Fortuna, hell bent on revenge for the death of his father and brother, along the way finding out the truth of the death of His Wife Holly.
Another cracking good story line.
