Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"In Thriller Award-finalist Abbott's exciting if tortuous sequel to Adrenaline (2010), CIA agent Sam Capra continues to search for his infant son, Daniel, held by the cartel of evil known as Novem Soles (Nine Suns). At the behest of the cartel, Sam must kill Chinese graduate student and computer hacker Jin Ming, who holds secrets that might destroy Novem Soles. Meanwhile, the cartel snatches Taylor, the baby daughter of computer expert Leonie, and blackmails Leonie into helping Sam locate Ming. With their children's lives at stake, the two will do anything to save Taylor and Daniel. Fights, flights, betrayals, and shifting alliances all play out against the constant threat to the children as a much battered Sam seeks an end game that will give him back his life and his son. A closing twist that violates fair play will annoy some readers. 5-city author tour. Agent: Peter Ginsberg, Curtis Brown. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
