Downfall by Jeff Abbott



She is a good mother. She will do what she must to ensure that her daughter Diana has a perfect life, just as perfect as the one they’ve led for the past seven years.

No matter who has to die.


The simplest beginnings can unravel a life. For Sam Capra, it is the moment a beautiful young woman walks into his San Francisco bar.

Sam doesn’t want trouble. An ex-CIA agent, his only desire now is to build a quiet, peaceful home for himself and his infant son. But Diana Keene is no ordinary customer. She’s pursued by two gunmen, and when she finds Sam, she whispers an urgent, desperate plea: “Help me.”

And without any warning, Sam is thrust into a fight for his life. For Diana is being hunted by a deadly network-a shadowy alliance of select, influential men and women who use their connections, their authority, and their wealth to bend the world to their will. Now, this network aims its relentless fury against the man interfering with their plans to seize a new level of power: Sam Capra.

Threatened on all sides, Sam has only one hope to survive the network’s all-consuming attack and return to his life with his son….he must destroy the man who owns the people who run the world.


I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  I have never had the pleasure of reading Jeff Abbott before, but I will tell you this, he now has another die hard fan!  I will definitely be reading the rest of his Sam Capra series as well as any other books he puts out!  This book was non-stop, in-your-face, brutal, die hard action!  There is so much story and so much happening that you are completely engrossed in the book.  I could easily see this becoming a movie with say, Jensen Ackles playing Sam Capra and Tim Roth as the antagonist, John Belias.  This is one of those books that you can’t guess what’s going to happen because the characters are ruthless and conniving.  I was shocked almost every thing that happened in the story.  I was taken aback at how mean some of these characters could be.  I mean, I could understand why they would be that way, but some of the extremes that these people go to – it’s amazing.  I can’t really go into any detail in what I mean because it will spoil the book.  Let’s just say that this book will keep you guessing and if you think you know what it going to happen, you are wrong.
