Sam Capra must commit an impossible assassination - or he will lose the only person in the world who matters to him....
Sam Capra has one reason to live: to rescue his baby son from the people who abducted him. An ex-CIA agent, Sam now owns bars around the world as cover for his real mission - working undercover for a secret network as mysterious as it is powerful, while using his skills to find his child.
Now the kidnappers have offered a deadly deal: they'll surrender Sam's child... if Sam finds and murders the one man who can expose them. Teaming up with a desperate young mother whose daughter is also missing, Sam tracks his prey - and his son - across the country in a dangerous race against time and must unravel a deadly conspiracy if he's to rescue the only person in the world that matters to him.

Fantastically entertaining listen.
Yes. The author doesn't let up on the action or suspense.
Sam Capra. He is Sam Capra.
If you want an entertaining good book to listen to, this is it!
I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
...narrator is not at fault. Most of this espionage thriller is written in the first person with part is a woman talking and part is a man talking. A female and male narrator should have been used because this narrator could not simulate a female voice.
The novel itself is a very good espionage thriller. It is sad that the single narrator ruined the audiobook.
It is so thrilling that I found myself sitting in my car in the garage, after my long commute, listening to the next chapter! I am not a Jeff Abbott fan.
Jeff Abbott this series has taken me on a nice ride. The book kept my interest from beginning to end. I love the characters especially Mila. Leonie I think is crazy. This is the 2nd book in the series, can't wait to hear the others. The book kept my attention and was action packed to the last page. The narrator Kevin Collins did a very good job. I do not have an audio with him as narrator and he really impressed me.
hard to follow the dialoque between two people when the narrator gives them the same voice
Have not read the print. The job I have and the life I lead, I need someone to read to me while I get stuff done. I love love having some one reading to me.
Can not think of any. I don't compare books. I'm such an addict for books. I've listened to other Jeff Abbott books and I love Kevin T's narration. They had me at "this is audible" I love these guys. Jeff gives me what I need in a thriller.
I love Mina, she is a gritty lady, just love her. Any scene she's in.
Yes I did,. The love of family. Sister for sister then father for son. Friend for friend.
I will listen to this one a couple more times. There are suddle remarks made that could be missed.
the anxiety of the book did not evolve with the plot; therefore it was a little repetitive
because of who the characters were, I was really satisfied with the ending...a great twist
I liked when mila gets her revenge
it seems open for a follow-up; if there were a little more editing (beefing up the characters, not have so much repetitive emotional statements, etc.) it could be an really great book.
I had to give up at 6 hours into the book, just couldnt take the narrator for one more minute
A narrator who was a bit faster, less breathy, with a less emotionally laden voice
No, I have too many other books that I want to listen to.
When Sam was reunited with his child
I honestly stopped listening to this book about three or four times. The words "I have to get back my son!" started to grate on me during the first couple of chapters. However, I gave it another chance and kept listening. Once I made it over the hump (about an hour or two in) it really picked up and became quite exciting. Mr. Collins, really disappears into each character whether it is Sam (clearly American with no discernible accent) or Milla (a woman from Moldova). I would sometimes forget it was the same person doing both voices.
It was suspenseful at times, witty and funny in odd moments. The story was predictable at times, but there are only a few options of how things can resolve in any thriller, so perhaps "predictability" is always a possibility depending how you are guessing at the next progression of the story. Overall, I am glad I purchased it and powered through some of the earlier moments that just became repetitive and didn't quite gel.
From the middle of the book on, I really did find myself excited about the next time I would be able to sneak some time in to have a listen.
