Adrenaline by Jeff Abbott (Audio Book)

If you knew this was our final day together, what would you say to me?"
"Anything but good-bye. I can't ever say good-bye to you."


Sam Capra is living the life of his dreams.

He's a brilliant young CIA agent, stationed in London. His wife Lucy is seven months pregnant with their first child. They have a wonderful home, and are deeply in love.

They have everything they could hope for...until they lose it all in one horrifying moment.

On a bright, sunny day, Sam receives a call from Lucy while he's at work. She tells him to leave the building immediately. He does...just before it explodes, killing everyone inside. Lucy vanishes, and Sam wakes up in a prison cell. As the lone survivor of the attack, he is branded by the CIA as a murderer and a traitor.

Escaping from the agency, Sam launches into a desperate hunt to save his kidnapped wife and child, and to reveal the unknown enemy who has set him up and stolen his family. But the destruction of Sam's life was only step on in an extraordinary plot-and now Sam must become a new kind of hero.

My Thoughts:
This book was a ride! Sam's last day of 'normal' life involved a bombing and his pregnant wife being kidnapped. He is a member of the Company and his work, family and life are all stripped from him in one day. Believed to be the lone survivor, Sam is branded a traitor and is 'questioned' by the Company in their time and with their methods. No matter if his story never changes, he keeps focused on one goal...finding his missing wife and child.
Sam was a wonderfully complex and yet almost broken character. He had only one goal in mind and that was finding his wife and son....nothing else mattered to him and I LOVED that. Mia was an interesting character, I can't wait to learn more about her though we did get some interesting glimpses into her past. Lucy was twisted, Howell just mean, August loyal and the other players were also written to perfection.
I rate this a 4/5. It was a great ride but was 'rough' in some spots to where I wouldn't reccomend it for all people. But I can't wait for the next one!
