by Jeff Abbott
Grand Central, $24.99, 400 pp
Release Date: July 1, 2011
Jeff Abbott is the three time nominee for the Edgar with 11 novels to his credit.

Sam Capra is a brilliant young CIA agent in London when he gets a call from his pregnant wife telling him to leave the building . He gets out, the only survivor, and wakes up framed for the murders and in a CIA cell. He escapes, desperate to find his wife and newborn son As he searches through a labyrinth of lies, traitors and more twists and turns than a pretzel factory, he must become a whole new kind of hero….if he survives.

This is a thriller with a capital T. But what keeps the reader enthralled is not the superb writing, plot twists and action, action, action. It is the characters - under stress and mounting pressure so well-drawn you really care. No wonder Abbott has three Edgar nominations. There will be more and I, for one, hope we will see a lot more of Sam Capra. ~~ Pam Allan
