    One thought on “Adrenaline”

    1. Q: He was probably good at handling contracts and subordinates and accounts. I was none of those things. (c)Q: Silence is my most powerful weapon. Most people literally cannot sit in silence with another human being around, especially in a café over drinks. We consider it odd. (c)Q: Nic, the wannabe badass, was a computer geek who lived with his mother. (c)Q: Parkour is about effective movement from place to place. Efficiency. I made my mind a knife. I cut the problem into small steps that coul [...]

    2. Here's the litmus test to determine if you'd like this book:If, in the middle of an action/combat scene in which the main character is attacked by a swarthy sailor with a switchblade, the main character's reaction is to think to himself, 'The 1980s called and wants its weapon back', do you dig it or almost throw your Kindle into the nearby swimming pool?There's a reason I'm writing this from my iPad.If you have nothing else to read except deodorant packaging, sure, pick up this book. It's a pred [...]

    3. This is the book that made me the reader that I am today. I am so thankful with this book because it got me started into reading. Before this book i did not read anything at all, dont ask me why because i dont know ( i was missing out) but now i have read 14 books just this year. To me that is a great accomplishment because i used to not read anything, so to go from nothing to 14 is awsome! One of my friends asked me if i could go with him to barnes and noble to get some books. While i was there [...]

    4. "Adrenaline" is the first novel written by Jeff Abbott that I've read. The premise of the book sounded promising, the beginning chapters were exciting, and then the story simply ran out of steam. In fact, it was about 100 pages too long. I read a fair amount of mysteries and spy thrillers, most of them more suspenseful and better written than "Adrenaline". In my opinion, this book deserves a C+ to B rating.Without warning, CIA operative Sam Capra's happy life and the world as he knows it are bla [...]

    5. This is the second book, I've read by this author and it is the first one in his Sam Capra series. It was great to get the back story on Sam, because I've already read the 5th one in this series. I actually liked this one. It was fast paced and entertaining. Some of the plot was a little far fetched, but I didn't care.e ride was fun and I could almost believe this world the author described. I liked the characters. They were fun and interesting. Sam, the MC, wasn't overly defined in this one, bu [...]

    6. This started out really well, a 4 star read. Unfortunately, it jumped the shark about halfway through & kept doing so. I don't know why the author felt he had to have a guy jump off a bridge on to a truck doing 70 mph down a highway, but that's TV garbage. Up until that point, it had been pretty realistic, too.The hero & story starts out really well. He's into parkour & that was well used at first. His life is shattered & he never gives up. Well done. The bars were a good touch & [...]

    7. I don’t normally read stories like Adrenaline. You know the kind: the generic dime store thriller you see among the likes of James Patterson and Patricia Cornwell. I never, ever, pick up these books. It’s not that I have a discriminatory sensibility about them. Obviously, they’re popular books and sell lots of copies. It’s just something that I’ve never had a compelling desire to read. So, since I just had Adrenaline lying around I thought I would try something different as a sort of p [...]

    8. Sam Capra is off to work. Things are going well. His wife, Lucy, is 8 months pregnant and he loves his job as part of a special team that tracks down bad guys through their networks. He is just about to make an important report when Lucy calls telling him to meet her downstairs and then when he gets there, to run. He spots her in a car across the street and runs toward the car just as the top floor of the building, where his offices are located, blows up.Soon, the next thing he knows is being lo [...]

    9. It might be 3.5 stars, not 3, but we'll have to see after the story has had time to settle in my mind. This was the genre of book that I needed in the moment, so I may be rating it higher for that reason.I really felt that this was many short stories tied together with the same characters and plotlines that flowed (sort of). I found myself thinking more than once "really? more?" Sometimes, when a spy/thriller novel is well-written, you feel like you're being swept away, and you feel the urgency [...]

    10. This is the first book I've read by Jeff Abbott. The only reason I bought it is because I won the second book in the series through a goodread giveaway. I wanted background information on this Sam Capra character that is the focus of the series.The book starts off with Capra showing off his parkour skills and explaining his love for it. Initially, Capra thinks his life that he has made with his wife is perfect. A CIA operative who's about to embark on a great journey of normalcy has no idea his [...]

    11. Very exciting book about a man who works for the CIA and so does his wife. She warns him to get out of the building just before a bomb blows it up and kills everyone. Is she a traitor, or was she forced to? Kidnapped? What about their son? She is seven months pregnant when she disappears. The CIA won't let Sam look for her. How will he get out and start searching? Plays like an action movie, very gripping, fast-paced and exciting. Twists and turns in every chapter.

    12. I received this audiobook for review from Hachette Audio. I did not receive any compensation for my review, and the views expressed herein are my own. Adrenaline is a fast-paced thriller that will leave you wanting more!Sam Capra is a CIA agent whose pregnant wife, Lucy (also a CIA agent), has been kidnapped after a bombing of the CIA offices. A phone call Lucy makes to Sam telling him to leave the building moments before the bomb goes off leads the CIA to believe that Lucy double-crossed the CI [...]

    13. I don't read many thrillers, but I enjoy one every now and then. This one in particular didn't do it for me on almost every level. I'm actually kind of shocked this guy is an established author, this feels like a "first time" kind of book.For one, the author is constantly telling with almost no showing. I know thrillers have to move fast, which sometimes requires just straight up telling, but you have to put the reader in the shoes of the main character too. I need to feel the sweaty palms, the [...]

    14. This is another book nominated for the TLA Lariat List. It is one of the most action packed books I have ever read. Sam Capra is a traceur, a parkour runner. He is also a CIA operative. Living in London, he leaves for work one morning, kisses his expectant wife goodbye and heads into the office to give a briefing on "The Money King." The next thing he knows, his wife has called him, told him to leave the office and meet her downstairs, it is urgent. He leaves the meeting in time to see his wife [...]

    15. WOW WOW WOW!!!This book started off with a lot of action, and it never let up. In a lot of books, I get to the end of a chapter and it's a good stopping point -- in this book, the end of the chapter just meant I needed to flip the page and continue the story. It was very intense and kept my attention very well.I have been a fan of James Rollins, James Twining, James Patterson, Brad Meltzer, and some others for a while since their books tend to be action oriented and they can be considered "thril [...]

    16. It is really hard for me to stick with thrillers, but I thought Abbott did a great job with this. I found Sam Capra to be a bit more of a colored in character than other thriller leads, which I so appreciate. I also like that Adrenaline opens with Sam in his happy, interesting life. He may be forced to be a loner, but it is not his complete nature. Sam has an openness to people and seems experienced, but not hardened. I was rooting for him. I really wasn't sure for a long time whether another ma [...]

    17. 3.5 starsIf you are a fan of Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series than you will enjoy this book. I almost gave up at the very beginning because the protagonist (Sam Capra) is someone who is in the practice of parkour (Google it) and I had a tough time keeping my mind from thinking about the episode of The Office when Michael, Dwight and Andy are practicing their parkour skills and Andy jumps into an empty refrigerator box! It was hard for me to take that part of Capra's character seriously but the re [...]

    18. The protagonist, Sam Capra, works for the CIA. He is in his mid-twenties, tall, with dark blond hair, and keeps fit by practicing Olympic sorts of jumps and flips off of walls and ceilings and stairways – this will come in handy! (Called "Parkour", this is the real-life non-competitive sport originating in France of traversing mainly urban landscapes by running, climbing, vaulting, and other acrobatic movements.) There is terrorism, betrayal, treason, lots of deaths, and an international chase [...]

    19. First Sentence: Once my wife asked me: if you knew this was our final day together, what would you say to me?CIA agent Sam Capra is deeply in love with his pregnant wife. However, his life turns into a nightmare when his office is blown up killing everyone but him due to a call from Lucy telling him to leave the building, and she then disappears. The CIA accuses Sam of treason and murder, yet he remains determined to prove both his, and Lucy’s innocence. But first, he needs to find her and the [...]

    20. 3.5 stars rounding up to 4Sam Capra is living a good life --- happily married to Lucy, expecting their first child (the bundle), and loves his job as a CIA agent based in London. Then one day, he gets a call from his wife to leave his office, and as he's running out of the building, he sees her as a passenger driving away just as the building blows up. This was a great set-up -- in the aftermath of the attack, the CIA is unsure of what to do with Sam. Is he a traitor, is his wife? Did he know, i [...]

    21. I had previously read Jeff Abbott's novels, Black Jack Point, Cut And Run, Kiss Gone Bad and Panic, and remember them as well crafted, engaging, with shrewd plots and great characters . I had also read about his awards for Do Unto Others, which won both the Agatha Award and the Macavity Award for Best First Novel. So when I had the opportunity to read Adrenaline I jumped at it. The blurb made it sound fun, the plot was intriguing, and the protagonist sounded like my kind of guy.Sam Capra is an i [...]

    22. This book has many blessings and few faults. I've never read a Jeff Abbott book or heard of him until this book. He's a pretty talented writer. This book has many subplots, some of which you won't see coming. I love how the subplots intertwine. I love how each minor character have their background in the novel, so Abbott thoroughly planned out his characters. The writing style, however, wasn't my favorite. There were times when I though a cliffhanger into the next chapter could have had more pun [...]

    23. I am always up to reading about the birth of a new character aren’t you? I was captivated by Sam very quickly, his wife not so much. But I digress. The twist and turns in this novel are many, the double crosses and triple crosses are plentiful and the action is just about nonstop. I like the title of the novel; it fits. The ensemble cast was fun for me; their morals and code of ethics were pretty plain, and the good guy, well he just rocks. Jeff Abbott took me on a rollercoaster of a ride righ [...]

    24. Well, Jeff Abbott is no Robert Ludlum, but he'll do in a pinch. Abbott's Sam Capra is plunged into a hellish reality after his pregnant wife is kidnapped and his CIA office blown into smithereens. Surprisingly, after this spectacular beginning, the story slows to a tedious pace as Abbott tries to set up the parameters of the story and develop a believable character. It picks back up, to be sure, but if you're the type who watches James Bond and guffaws about how none of it can really happen, thi [...]

    25. Adrenaline? I would say has a combination of elements from these movies: Taken, The Bourne Identity, Mr & Mrs Smith, Minority Report, Salt. Or maybe that's just me being a poor "thriller" reader and grabbing at these movies to explain this book. I was hooked from the first line and I powered through the story with the limitless actions and crazy twists. This is not my usual book, but nonetheless, it was a great read. I was torn between 3 and 4 stars (I wish there were half stars!), but ultim [...]

    26. I read this because Jeff Abbott, years ago, wrote a cozy that won an Agatha. I need to do a quick reread of it for Chapter 5 (I've forgotten some things), and discovered that Abbott is now well-known for writing thriller and spy novels. I love those genres, so I took a look at this one, the first in a series. The first 1/4 of it was quite good, and it propelled me through the rest of the novel. By the last 1/3 of the novel, it kind of unraveled and became cartoonish for me. For reasons I don't f [...]

    27. Sam Capra works for a CIA front in London that investigates crime syndicates. When it is destroyed by a massive explosion following a warning call from his fellow CIA agent wife, he survives and is viewed as responsible. She disappears with a great deal of money. Though thoroughly distrusted by the agency, Capra is used as bait for those he claimed blew up his office. Unwilling to wait passively, having ducked a death attempt, Sam Capra goes on the offensive. Action is steady and constant, and S [...]

    28. Wowwhat a roller coaster ride of a thriller! From the beginning when Sam Capra's pregnant wife is kidnapped in London the reader is spellbound by the action and twists and turns in this novel. . As the only survivor of a blast that decimates the London operations center of a CIA operation Sam is not above suspicion. Worse yet, his pregnant wife is being accused of being a traitor as well. Who to believe, who to trust, who to ally himself with. Sam's adventure keeps you turning the pages.This is [...]
