Publisher's Summary

She is a good mother. She will do what she must to ensure that her daughter Diana has a perfect life, just as perfect as the one they've led for the past seven years.

No matter who has to die.

The simplest beginnings can unravel a life. For Sam Capra, it is the moment a beautiful young woman walks into his San Francisco bar.

Sam doesn't want trouble. An ex-CIA agent, his only desire now is to build a quiet, peaceful home for himself and his infant son. But Diana Keene is no ordinary customer. She's pursued by two gunmen, and when she finds Sam, she whispers an urgent, desperate plea: "Help me."

And without any warning, Sam is thrust into a fight for his life. For Diana is being hunted by a deadly network - a shadowy alliance of select, influential men and women who use their connections, their authority, and their wealth to bend the world to their will. Now, this network aims its relentless fury against the man interfering with their plans to seize a new level of power: Sam Capra.

Threatened on all sides, Sam has only one hope to survive the network's all-consuming attack and return to his life with his son...he must destroy the man who owns the people who run the world.

Entertaining Dan Capra thriller

Author Jeff Abbott certainly keeps the action going. I'm not huge fan of this author or this series, but Downfall is a worthwhile listen.

Great Installment in the Sam Capra Series

Fast paced and lots of action. Left with a bit of cliff hanger. I can't wait for the next one to come out. If you liked the previous books, you will probably like this one.

Not My Combination...

I'm afraid I only made it 30 minutes into this one...

I've always thought a good reader could save a mediocre book and a mediocre reader could sink a good book. Unfortunately I'm not sure what happened here...

The readers' corny, overheated tone starts from a position of mild hysteria and goes from there. This soap opera-ish approach get ahead of the listener's involvement in the story...drama before you have a chance to get involved.

I'm not familiar with the writer's other work, the melodrama of the writing is not aided by this tone.
