Ben Coes (born September 10, 1966) is a New York Times best-selling author of international political thriller and espionage novels. He lives with his wife and four children in Wellesley, Massachusetts.
Coes's novels feature Dewey Andreas, a former member of U.S. Special Forces 1st SFOD-D, also known as Delta Force. Coes has called his books "reality-based," drawing upon his early career at the White House and in finance. Coes has credited his godfather, a former member of the U.S. Navy SEALs, with influencing the often violent, brutally realistic plots of his novels.
