Am Anfang der Karriere von Jeff Abbott standen Kleinstadtkrimis. Dieses Umfeld hat er längst hinter sich gelassen und mit "Adrenaline" (geschrieben 2010), wird der Leser in die Welt der Geheimdienste, der verdeckten Ermittlungen und großer Verschwörungen geführt.

Dabei beginnt alles so friedlich und ruhig.

Sam Capra lebt das Leben seiner Träume. Als Amerikaner in London hat er die perfekte Wohnung, arbeitet für die CIA in deren Londoner Büro und hat dort einen zwar verantwortungsvolle, aber doch wenig aufregende Schreibtischarbeit.

Außerdem ist er mit Lucy verheiratet, welche, um das Glück perfekt zu machen, im siebenten Monat schwanger ist.

Die einzige Dosis Adrenalin holt er sich beim Parkour-Laufen - wobei er sich den kürzesten Weg von A nach B sucht und alle Hindernisse, die sich dabei auftürmen, seien es Zäune, Mauern etc. überwindet, ob durch Klettern oder Springen.

Dann aber verändert sich seine Welt schlagartig. Während er eine Präsentation vor Kollegen hält, erreicht ihn der Anruf seiner Frau. Sie fordert ihn eindringlich auf, dass Gebäude zu verlassen. Er kommt ihrem Wunsch nach und danach bricht die Hölle über ihn herein.

Das Haus explodiert und die Mitarbeiter des Londoner Büros der CIA werden dabei getötet. Sam sieht seine Frau in einem Auto, welches von einem ihm unbekannten Mann gefahren wird.

Er versucht ihr zu folgen, jedoch vergeblich.

Kurz darauf wacht er in einem CIA - Gefängnis in Polen auf. Man hält ihn für den Attentäter und auch seine Frau ist verdächtigt.

Alles, woran Sam Capra von nun an denken kann, ist zu fliehen.

Doesn't Wrap Up Everything By the End, but a Great Fast Paced Action Read! 21. November 2010
Von James N Simpson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Adrenaline is a great fast paced novel, which is pretty much non stop action from the first to the last page. The only downside is that is clearly the start of a series, by this I mean that even though the majority of the issues in the novel are resolved by the end, a few things aren't. It's still enjoyable as standalone read but you're sort of hooked to now wait in anticipation for the next novel in the series to see those things resolved.

This novel is a little less Harlan Coben style, than Panic and some of his other independent stand alone storyline novels, more like a David Morrell far fetched well trained military/secret agent operative main character than an everyday guy type through the eyes read. It's not realistic (although it is considerably more so than some of Abbott's other work) but that doesn't mean it's not just plain fun.

Basic plot of Adrenaline is a former in the field secret agent type, Sam Capra has settled down to a life of briefing his organisation (known as The Company) on threats to the Western world. He's got a heavily pregnant wife named Lucy whose only days away from giving birth and the biggest risks he now takes is his morning runs through British council estates where he enjoys using the rooves, railings and other parts of those estates as an obstacle course. However during a morning presentation he receives a call on his mobile, his wife is on the other end and tells him he must come down and meet her on the street right now. Since she's heavily pregnant he can get away with this, but as he hits the street his building explodes. He sees his wife being held captive in a car, a man with a scarred face beside her fleeing from the scene. No one believes she has been kidnapped, and it's not long before normal police interviewing is replaced by a needle and Sam awakens in a Polish prison where he is tortured and questioned in the hopes he will confess the details and give up the information on the whereabouts of those responsible. The Company tell him that he either must have known with all his training that his wife was a traitor or he is completely useless as an agent because the signs are always obvious. Sam doesn't want to believe the answer is either of those things and is determined to do whatever it takes to find his wife and would be born now child and to do that he'll have to get to the bottom of the bombing as well.

Fast Paced thriller 14. August 2010
Von Nick Brett - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This has both the good things and the flaws in the author's writing. A replay of elements of previous plots and a pace that goes so quickly that you almost miss the holes in the story.

But it's not 'bad', it is a 'read and forget' thriller, ideal for holidays and journeys and certainly not too taxing.

CIA operative escapes a bombing and finds himself under scrutiny and his pregnant wife the main suspect in the bombing. Our hero goes rogue (with the help of a mysterious organisation) to track down his wife and prove her innocence. A flaw returns from previous books as he turns from a CIA operative (with undercover experience) into a Jason Bourne type who can outsmart and outfight everyone. As our rogue operative gets closer to the truth, he finds there may be very few he can trust....

Like I said, this is an 'okay' thriller, it won't tax you but it should entertain you enough for a couple of hours. Billed as "Sam Capra 1", we may see more of this character, and I won't be sorry if we do.

Pretty good, but not uniformly so 9. Juli 2011
Von EJ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Recently a lot of books in the spy/ thriller genre have started to run together in my head, but this one is an exception. It was well-written and suspenseful, with several twists that actually did surprise me. There were some limitations to the book, however, which kept me from giving it a higher rating.

This is the story of Sam Capra, a CIA spook whose world gets turned upside down when he narrowly escapes as his office is bombed by a man who has also kidnapped his pregnant wife, Lucy. Sam is immediately considered suspect by the CIA since he is the only one who survives the bombing, and the story is off and running. He is desperate to find Lucy and their unborn child and has to rely on every tool in his arsenal to do so.

The book seemed to ebb and flow for me. There were sections of really rapid-fire, intensive excitement followed by some more tedious segments, and the narrative seemed to meander on for just a bit too long. In addition, there is some science in this book that borders on the ridiculous and really strained my ability to suspend disbelief. I did find the characters to be almost uniformly terrific, though I have to admit that I enjoyed Mila, a mysterious woman in whom Sam has met his match, more than Sam himself.

Probably one of the bigger annoyances to me upon completion of this book was the major unfinished story arc, which sets up the next book in the series. We already know what Sam's next mission will be, but it seemed gratuitous to leave that thread just dangling. I would've picked up the next book based on the strength of the characters, but the latest habit of series-writers to leave a book unfinished annoys me and knocked this book down a star.

Taken together with its myriad pros and cons, this book earned an average rating from me.

Huge disappointment - Misleading praise by Lee Child 4. Oktober 2011
Von J. Rockafellow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I bought ADRENALINE in August 2011 for a book club read. It was chosen by a book club member with normally good instincts for action-mystery books. Also, the book seemed to have a recommendation on its jacket by LEE CHILD, who himself really writes excellent action-mysteries. But ADRENALINE was a huge disappointment, the opposite of a "page turner." I had to prod myself to read it at night before bed and finally finished it after several weeks. The writing is insipid. I came away from the book telling myself I'll never read another by Jeff Abbott (sorry, Jeff). Let me try to explain.
The book starts with the hero and his pregnant wife in England, both government operatives, helplessly in love with each other. The action begins with a bombing followed by one of the most unlikely scenarios of torture and abuse of the hero by the CIA that one can imagine, apparently abetted by his wife. The forces of evil have obviously reached into the deepest recesses of the U.S. government (is this a recurrent theme these days, or what, conspiracies by outlaw government agents??!!). When the hero is given a respite by his government captors, and starts work as a bartender in New York, he repeatedly thinks to himself (the reader reads this at least EVERY 10 to 20 pages!) how his wife could not possibly have betrayed him and how he is going to spend his life finding her. This thought repeats itself relentlessly as he chases leads internationally.
The hero is seemingly helped at several key points by a super-secret cabal that is neither allied with the bad guys, nor allied with the U.S. government agents who are out to capture or otherwise neutralize him. But what is the CABAL's purpose? This is one of the mysteries to be solved, and other mysteries arise (of course) from sudden plot twists. As mentioned above, however, the biggest problem with this book is the insipid writing. The hero thinks like a juvenile, and it's tiring for the reader, notwithstanding that our hero occasionally acts with the precision of a Jason Bourne (of the BOURNE IDENTITY series). In the end analysis for me, this book contained about 10-15 percent of creative, interesting, page-turning action scenes, and 85-90 percent of juvenile thinking and outlook by the hero, quite boring.

Shockingly amateurish 9. Mai 2012
Von Iron - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I recently read Adrenaline, the first book from Jeff Abbot that I have read. I had read good reviews on this book, and I knew that this author had written about a dozen thrillers. So I expected a good book. I was disappointed. The writing itself was okay. The main character was flawed, and obsessed, but that's to be expected in this kind of book. My major disappointmen was in how little Mr. Abbott seemed to know about the things he was writing about.

On page 392 of the book, he wrote: "When an executive dies in a baseball stadium parking lot, and this precedes the assassination of an elected official shortly before, the investigation is taken away from the NYPD and the Company takes over". (The Company is, of course, the CIA). How's this? When it's a big case, the local police has to step aside and the CIA steps in? Is this author aware of the existance of an agency called the FBI? The one that is an actual law enforcement agency tasked with investigating crime committed on U.S. soil? Is Mr. Abbott even aware that the CIA is an intelligence gathering agency which has no jurisdiction in the U.S. in this kind of crime? In his book, Mr. Abbott describes the CIA as an all-powerful organization that seems to have infinite resources and can do anything it (Or in this case, its rogue agents) wishes to do without any fear or oversight or exposure. In his zeal to make the CIA the scariest bogeyman possible, Mr. Abbott has only succeeded in exposing his utter lack of understanding in how our intelligence and law enforcement apparatus actually work. If the CIA tried to take this kind of case out of the hands of the FBI, the inter-agency turf wars would have been epic in scale. Therefore, to not even mention the FBI's existance in this context smacks of amateurism to me.

Another aspect of the book that was terrible was the central plot device: The "magic bullet" that used DNA and nanotechnology to create "smart bullets" that could never miss their intended targets. Bullets are propelled from a gun by an explosive charge. They are guided by the aim of the marksman who aims the gun. They are NOT guided missiles which have the ability to fire side thrusters and attitude jets to adjust their aim as they travel. They follow ballistic paths, affected only by factors such as gravity, air currents, humidity, etc. By invoking the trendy words of DNA and nanotechnology, the author thought he would have a cool invention for all the spies to fight over. But it is a dumb invention, created without regard to the science of ballistics or understanding of modern arms technology. Again, an example of a failure that came from a lack of research.

The rest of the book? Honestly, it was unimpressive at best. The writing style is adequate, with good pacing and interesting action for the most part. But in truth it is no better or worse than a hundred other spy thrillers you will find out there. So, if you are looking for a superior spy thriller for your reading pleasure, I would advise you to move on.
