Description

Sam Capra returns as he embarks on a one-man mission to find his brother from the New York Times bestselling author, Jeff Abbott, in this "fast-paced, high-octane" read (Publishers Weekly).
Two brothers. One dead, executed by extremists on a grainy video. The other forged into a top undercover agent. But now, Sam Capra has reason to believe that his brother, Danny, may be alive. And if Danny has been living a secret life these past years, where has he been—and what has he become?
Sam's desperate search for his brother leads him into a modern heart of darkness: the Russian elite inner circle, a group of ruthless ex-KGB billionaires who owe fealty to Russia's corrupt president, Morozov. One of these men wants Morozov dead. And Danny will be the one to kill him—on American soil.
To save his brother—and to save the world from certain war—Sam, along with his mysterious partner, Mila, must stop Danny from killing Morozov. The mission will take Sam from the slums of Pakistan to the hipster galleries of Brooklyn to the Caribbean playgrounds of the superrich. And as Sam untangles the secret past locked in his brother's heart, he may be forced to make a choice between his brother—and the greater good . . .

        November 23, 2015
        In bestseller Abbott’s fast-paced, high-octane fifth thriller featuring ex-CIA operative Sam Capra (after 2014’s The Inside Man), an unnamed prospective client offers master hit man Philip Judge $20 million to pull off “the most dangerous assassination in history”—the murder of Russian president Dmitri Morozov on American soil. The job seems like an inevitable suicide mission, until Judge gets an idea from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar that would enable him to kill Morozov and live to enjoy the payday. Meanwhile, Sam desperately searches for his younger brother, Danny, who was supposedly murdered in the Hindu Kush six years earlier by a group calling itself the Brothers of the Mountain. Sam, who finds evidence that Danny’s death was staged, turns for help to his former colleagues in the Round Table, “a secret alliance that... tried to be a force for good in the world.” Abbott offers plenty of twists, though genre readers will find little that’s new, and Sam isn’t the most memorable series lead. Author tour. Agent: Peter Ginsberg, Curtis Brown.

        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. Just when Capra is sure he's about to retire, he gets word that his brother, Danny, thought to have been beheaded in a terrorist video, may still be alive. He doesn't yet know that Danny, now known as Philip Judge, has become a killer for hire who's just taken on his biggest assignment, executing the president of Russia for $20 million. Both brothers wind up infiltrating the circle of Russian billionaires who've landed in Miami. To stop Danny from carrying out the execution, Sam needs to find the identity of Firebird, the president's associate who commissioned the hit. Sam is helped considerably by his ability to attract women: he charms hard-partying Russian celebrity Katya Kirova and falls into a sexual affair with Irina Belinskaya, the widow of a high-ranking official, whose rumored vengeance on her husband's killers has earned her the title of Russia's most dangerous woman. Meanwhile, Sam's associate, Mila, has her own reasons to find Danny and keeps her information hidden from Sam--throwing him into further danger before the brothers reach their climactic confrontation. 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.

        In the fifth Sam Capra thriller, the American intelligence agent is shocked to discover that his brother, whom he watched (via videotape) being murdered, may be alive. Not only that, but he just might be an assassin-for-hire whose latest assignment is to kill the Russian president. Can Sam save the president and his brother, or will he have to sacrifice one to save the other? Fast paced and just plausible enough to satisfy readers who demand realism in their adrenaline-fueled thrillers, the book should definitely appeal to action fans. Each novel in the series can be read as a stand-alone, which means newcomers can plunge right in. Go for it.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)
