Inside Man by Jeff Abbott


Following AdrenalineThe Last Minute, and Downfall, Jeff Abbott returns with the next riveting novel in the award-winning New York Times bestselling Sam Capra series.


Sam Capra's friend Steve has been murdered, shot dead in the rain outside of his Miami bar. The only lead: a mysterious, beautiful stranger Steve tried to protect. To avenge his friend, Sam goes undercover into the Varelas, one of Miami's most prominent and dangerous families.

Now on the inside, playing a part where one wrong move means death, Sam faces a powerful, unstable tycoon intent on dividing his business empire between his three very different children, who each may hold murderous secrets of their own.

Sam is relentlessly drawn into this family's intense drama, amplifying painful echoes of his own shattered relationships as a son, brother, father, and husband. And just when he thinks he understands why the family is self-destructing, he discovers a lethal secret so shocking that the Varelas cannot let him walk away alive . . .

My Thoughts:
This was a much anticipated 4th book in this series for me!  Sam Capra's life has settled into bar owning.  Then his friend Steve is murdered right outside his bar and he is going to find out who and why.  Steve was protecting a beautiful woman who has her own secrets.  Sam goes undercover to avenge his friend's death and winds up in the middle of a successful and dangerous family.  His investigation might be their undoing, and his!
I've loved Sam Capra from the first book.  His story is just so sad...and involved.  This time it is friendship that drives him to put himself in danger.  He assumes his alias Sam Chevalier and goes undercover in a dangerous family.  The action in this book is non-stop and the adventure is awesome!  Once you start the book, you won't want to put it down.  If you haven't read the first 3, I would (they are great books) and then this one, but this one can stand alone.
It was a 4/5 for me.  I couldn't wait to read this one!
Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book (via netgalley).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.


  1. I'm not really into thrillers, but I have a friend who reads about 4 a week -- I'll have to see if she's read this one. If this series is as good as you say, maybe I'll have to check it out as well. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I got pulled into the first book in the series and it is just one of those that you HAVE to know what happens. Then with the next book, it continues the same person's (Sam) life story so you want to know what happens next. I just completely love it.
