CIA Agent Sam Capra is in the middle of a meeting in London when he receives a call from his wife, urgently asking him to meet her outside—NOW. As he exits the building, an explosion rocks the area he just left, killing all of his coworkers, and he sees his wife Lucy speeding away in a car driven by a strange man. This begins the fast-paced thriller Adrenaline by Jeff Abbott. No one in the CIA believes that Lucy has been kidnapped; instead insisting she is a traitor and set up the bombing. They also believe Sam must have known of her plans—why else is he the only survivor? Sam begins a harrowing journey to outsmart the CIA and use his training to track down his wife and find clues to the puzzle of the bombing. This story is filled with non-stop action and violence. Sam is a man on a mission—resourceful, intelligent and committed to finding his family—a memorable character. Abbot weaves a complicated story that is hard to put down—a terrific beginning to what appears to be a new series.
