Publisher's Summary

Sam Capra returns as he embarks on a one-man mission to find his brother from the New York Times best-selling author, Jeff Abbott, in this "fast-paced, high-octane" read (Publishers Weekly).

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...

Critic Reviews

"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)

Over dramatized

The only thing more unbelievable than this story is the mind numbing, overly dramatic narration. Blah!

One of the best series I've ever read

If you're a fan of action-packed spy novels, then this series is a sure bet. After these last 5 books, I'll now buy anything from Jeff Abbott! Highly recommended!

Wonderful story!

The story was very good and was narrated in a griping and thrilling spy story.

I'm a little pissed off...

Okay, so I just discovered Sam Capra, which meant that I got to binge listen.... and I did. I listened to the whole series in one good binge... and then the next title is not out! So I am a little pissed...

By why do I give this series such a good review: First the narrator, I always know who is talking. The narrator has chosen voices and accents for each character, and I am never wondering who is talking. That is not an easy task.

I like all the characters. They are all flawed, and I never quite know what is really going on behind the scenes, so there is a limited viewpoint, which I like.

I like the set up for the main character. It's just a fun, easy, and interesting listen.

But start at the beginning of the series.

real good book

I would have done 4.5 on story if I could. the story was great except at one point where things got a little to complicated with too many people lying to one another at the same time. Was a little too outrageous. But the author turned it back around and it started getting really good again. It was just in one chapter. If you like espionage stories this one is more than worth the credit.

Plot was very difficult to follow

This story made no sense at all, the plot and characters were not believable, I really struggled to listen to the very end.
