In the first book in this trilogy, Adrenaline, (2011), CIA agent Sam Capra’s colleagues were killed in a bomb blast, his wife and child were abducted, and Sam was accused of committing treason. Now, desperate to find his son, Sam agrees to work for an enigmatic group called the Round Table, whose members claim to have vital information that can lead Sam to the boy. The kidnappers have offered a deadly deal. They will return his son if Sam finds the one man who can expose them and murder him. Sam is a likable, morally conflicted hero in a difficult situation. Will he? Thanks to Abbott’s skills as a storyteller we can’t tell whether Sam will commit murder to find his son. Reminiscent of Robert Ludlum, The Last Minute is the second book in a trilogy, which began with Adrenaline (reviewed in an earlier blog). Follow Sam through a third breathtaking adventure in Downfall.
