A tightly-coordinated series of attacks shatters America's energy-producing capacity – a major hydroelectric dam is blown up and the largest off-shore oil field in the hemisphere is destroyed – bringing the country's largest energy company to its knees. But when the terrorists struck the Capitana platform off the coast of Colombia – slaughtering most of the crew and destroying the oil field – there was one factor they didn't take into account: Dewey Andreas. Crew chief of the platform, Dewey Andreas, a former Army Ranger and Delta, survives the attack, overcomes the team of terrorists and rescues as many of his men as possible. But with that battle, the war has just begun.
Determined to find and bring to account the men who planned the attack, Dewey must call on his long-dormant skills and overcome waves of increasingly deadly assaults as he follows the trail of terrorists and operatives sent to stop him.
Meanwhile, the mysterious Alexander Fortuna – an agent embedded into the highest levels of American society and business – prepares to launch the second stage of his long-planned attacks. With Dewey Andreas coming ever closer, the two men are locked in a deadly race against time: Fortuna to finally unleash the broader assault against America that has been his life's mission, and Dewey to find and stop Fortuna, to protect the country and the people he loves.
Power Down is a gripping, compelling debut thriller, featuring an electrifying new hero, from a powerful new writer.

“Coes pumps new heat, blood, and flat-out action into his frighteningly plausible thriller debut….Readers will eagerly await Coes's next effort and hope for Dewey Andreas's return.”
“I loved Power Down! It's a fresh, exciting thriller and the action scenes are big, vivid and authentic, at times even breathtaking. An impressive debut for Ben Coes. I was blown away.”
– David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Creepers and creator of Rambo
“Power Down is terrific! With a gripping story, compelling characters, a relentless pace and nerve-wracking suspense, Power Down is one of the must-read thrillers of the year. Don't miss this debut of novelist Ben Coes and the introduction of Dewey Andreas – you'll devour this one and wait anxiously for their return.”
– Vince Flynn, New York Times bestselling author of Pursuit of Honor
“A ripping thriller from an exciting new novelist. Power Down kept me glued, turning the pages. Lots of action, a terrific hero, and a slimy villain–thrillers don't get any better.”
– Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of The Disciple
“Power Down marks the emergence of a major new talent in the political thriller genre—no small feat in a field already packed with big names like Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and David Baldacci. In terms of sheer entertainment value, author Ben Coes and his hero, the unusually but memorably named Dewey Andreas, are easily and immediately competitive with the very best the thriller field has to offer.”
