BLAME by Jeff Abbott
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: July 18, 2017

"The unconventional plot, the constant surprises, and above all the psychological depth of the characters all make this a first-rate crime novel."
An amnesiac accident victim has to investigate her own past in Abbott's (The First Order, 2016, etc.) tense psychological thriller. Read full book review >
THE FIRST ORDER by Jeff Abbott
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Jan. 5, 2016

"Abbott loads his story with entertaining plot twists, not all of which make perfect sense, but the bond and betrayal between the two brothers add emotional depth to the action."
An epic struggle between two brothers throws Russian-American relations in jeopardy during this strong installment of Abbott's series (Inside Man, 2014, etc.) featuring ex-CIA sleuth Sam Capra. Read full book review >
INSIDE MAN by Jeff Abbott
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: July 1, 2014

" Add in the multiple brushes with gunfire he survives while unarmed and the run he makes without harm through a minefield, and Capra may be the one of the luckiest sleuths in literature."
Abbott's (Downfall, 2013, etc.) hip young ex-CIA spy Sam Capra tangles with international smugglers in this fast-moving but ultimately far-fetched thriller. Read full book review >
DOWNFALL by Jeff Abbott
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: July 16, 2013

"The criminal mastermind manages to be both repellent and uninteresting, and it's hard to root for anyone, including Sam, when everyone's basically under compulsion to eliminate everyone else. Maybe Abbott and his hapless hero should move on to a new formula."
Nothing in Sam Capra's three short years in the CIA could have prepared him for the series of high-stakes conspiracies he's encountered since then (The Last Minute, 2012, etc.), including this tale of a ruthless Mephisto who promises to fulfill his minions' dreams if only they'll kill at his command.

THE LAST MINUTE by Jeff Abbott
Released: July 3, 2012

"Enough hired guns, double bluffs, CIA turncoats, narrow escapes, acts of political and personal treachery and scenes of armed and bare-knuckled combat for a miniseries. The perfect antidote for Downton Abbey."
Just because the ex-wife and CIA colleague who betrayed Sam Capra lies in a coma and the son he's never met has been kidnapped doesn't mean there's no more fight left in the man. Not by a long shot. Read full book review >
ADRENALINE by Jeff Abbott
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: July 1, 2011

"Begins brilliantly but diminishes to ordinary when character-driven gives way to body-count-driven."
In Abbott's latest (Trust Me, 2009, etc.), the spy who has everything loses all but his cloak and dagger. Read full book review >
