The Last Refuge by Ben Coes Review + Giveaway

From Amazon - Off a quiet street in Brooklyn, New York, Israeli Special Forces commander Kohl Meir is captured by operatives of the Iranian secret service, who smuggle Meir back to Iran, where he is imprisoned, tortured, and prepared for a show trial. What they don’t know is that Meir was in New York to recruit Dewey Andreas for a secret operation. Meir had been tipped off that Iran had finally succeeded in building their first nuclear weapon, one they were planning to use to attack Israel. His source was a high-level Iranian government official and his proof was a photo of the bomb itself. Dewey Andreas, a former Army Ranger and Delta, owes his life to Meir and his team of Israeli commandos. Now, to repay his debt, Dewey has to attempt the impossible ---to both rescue Meir from one of the world’s most secure prisons and to find and eliminate Iran’s nuclear bomb before it’s deployed---all without the help or sanction of Israel or America (at the near certain risk of detection by Iran).

Fans of Brad Thor will devour The Last Refuge! A political thriller that will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat, Ben Coes leaves no stone unturned in this action-packed thriller!

Dewey Andreas goes to meet Israeli Special Forces commander Kohl Mier in New York, but the meeting never happens.  Mier has been kidnapped by Iranians and the outlook isn't good. Mier had saved Andreas life so he won't rest until he has done everything he can to rescue Mier.

On top of that, there is political turmoil with Israel, Iran, China and a nuclear weapon.    The first book I've read by this author, I now want to go back and read the first two books in the series, Power Down and Coup d'Etat, even though The Last Refuge can be read as a standalone.   
With several key players and non-stop nail-biting action, The Last Refuge is  taut, shrewd and well-researched.  Once the main stage is set, the plot twists and turns, pulling the reader along for the ride.  If you enjoy this genre, you definitely won't want to miss this one.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
