Sam Capra is on a one-man mission to find his brother....
And to stop a war.
The First Order
Two brothers. One dead, executed by extremists on a grainy video. The other forged into a top undercover agent. But now Sam Capra has reason to believe that his brother, Danny, may be alive. And if Danny has been living a secret life these past years, where has he been - and what has he become?
Sam's desperate search for his brother leads him into a modern heart of darkness: the Russian elite inner circle, a group of ruthless ex-KGB billionaires who owe fealty to Russia's corrupt president, Morozov. One of these men wants Morozov dead. And Danny will be the one to kill him - on American soil.
To save his brother - and to save the world from certain war - Sam, along with his mysterious partner, Mila, must stop Danny from killing Morozov. The mission will take Sam from the slums of Pakistan to the hipster galleries of Brooklyn to the Caribbean playgrounds of the superrich. And as Sam untangles the secret past locked in his brother's heart, he may be forced to make a choice between his brother - and the greater good....

"Thriller Award-winner Abbott draws on Shakespeare's King Lear for his outstanding fourth Sam Capra novel...Abbott injects enough of Sam's back story to make his intricate plot believable, judiciously spices his tale with tasteful but usually interrupted romance, and convincingly makes Sam a genuine contemporary 'chevalier." (Publishers Weekly)
"Exciting and imaginative, full of action and intrigue. Abbott's writing raises the pulse, taking readers on a wild adventure." (Free-Lance Star)
A bit different than the previous stories. The pacing was good and plot twists entertaining. Although the story was more grounded in reality, so enjoyed.
The narrator was good.
Different reader! The characters sound much alike, other than when an accent is called for, and not a whole lot of emotion. I could only get part way through the book, because I could never connect with any of the characters. Too bad, as the story was interesting. I'm returning the book.
Collins over enunciates every word so one loses track of the plot, the characters and the action. Someone who just reads the book would be much better.
Disappointing and hard to follow the plot, don't care about the characters who are either melodramatic or sound that way as Collins reads.
