Publisher's Summary

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.

Fast paced and exciting

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.

I needed a new author to read and came upon

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.

the narrator wrecks the story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

hard to follow the dialoque between two people when the narrator gives them the same voice

Good thriller ruined by narration, but the...

...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.

Has been on the wish list, forever,

Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Minute to be better than the print version?

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.

What other book might you compare The Last Minute to and why?

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.

Which scene was your favorite?

I love Mina, she is a gritty lady, just love her. Any scene she's in.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes I did,. The love of family. Sister for sister then father for son. Friend for friend.

Any additional comments?

I will listen to this one a couple more times. There are suddle remarks made that could be missed.

better editing would have helped

Is there anything you would change about this book?

the anxiety of the book did not evolve with the plot; therefore it was a little repetitive

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

because of who the characters were, I was really satisfied with the ending...a great twist

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked when mila gets her revenge

Do you think The Last Minute needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

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.

Read the book but dont listen to the audiobook

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I had to give up at 6 hours into the book, just couldnt take the narrator for one more minute

How could the performance have been better?

A narrator who was a bit faster, less breathy, with a less emotionally laden voice
