“If you knew this was our final day together, what would you say to me?”
“Anything but good-bye. I can’t ever say good-bye to you.”

Sam Capra is living the life of his dreams. He’s a brilliant young CIA agent, stationed in London. His wife Lucy is seven months pregnant with their first child. They have a wonderful home and are deeply in love. They have everything they could hope for—until they lose it all in one horrifying moment.

On a bright, sunny day, Sam receives a call from Lucy while he’s at work. She tells him to leave the building immediately. He does … just before it explodes, killing everyone inside. Lucy vanishes, and Sam wakes up in a prison cell. As the lone survivor of the attack, he is branded by the CIA as a murderer and a traitor.

Escaping from the agency, Sam launches into a desperate hunt to save his kidnapped wife and child and to reveal the unknown enemy who has set him up and stolen his family. But the destruction of Sam’s life was only the first step in an extraordinary plot—and now Sam must become a new kind of hero.

Quotes & Awards

  • Adrenaline has everything-relentless action, mind-bending intrigue, and twists and turns you won’t see coming. It’s exhilarating, and confirms Jeff Abbott as one of the best thriller writers of our time.” 

    Harlan Coben, New York Times bestselling author

  • “This is a wonderful book and the start of one of the most exciting new series I've had the privilege to read.”

    Laura Lippman, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Engaging from the first paragraph, terrifying from the second page, Adrenaline accomplishes what most modern thrillers can’t. It makes us care about its characters even while we’re speeding headlong down the ingenious Rabbit Hole of its plot. Well done! 

    Eric Van Lustbader, New York Times bestselling author

  • Adrenaline lives up to its name. Pure thriller in pace, but Abbott manages to keep the book’s heart in the right place. The characters aren’t cardboard action figures, but people under incredible stresses and strains. I read it in a big gulp.” 

    Charlaine Harris, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Jeff Abbott is a master, and Adrenaline is his best book yet.”

    Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author

  • “In his quest to find his family, Capra becomes the best kind of hero, one who’s highly capable at kicking ass, but who’s also imbued with a large amount of heart, which makes him worth rooting for book after book. Fortunately, Jeff Abbott has promised us more.”

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jo | 2/3/2014

    " Improbable "thriller", CIA agent Sam Capra is a skilled in Parkour; sets out on a dangerous quest to rescue his pregnant wife from a dangerous international group. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 2/3/2014

    " As always Jeff Abott's books takes so many twists and turns. Kept me guessing all the way. Looking forward to reading about Sam's search for his son. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo Dale Guzman | 1/25/2014

    " I like Jeff Abbott and I like great bars so I wanted to like this book. It was an interesting ride, but I need to accept that I don't enjoy spy novels and move on to another genre. Sam is a great character, Mila and interesting boss, there is a buddy, a good nemesis, I just didn't love the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheila | 1/18/2014

    " Sam Capra receives a phone call from his pregnant wife telling him to get out of the CIA office in London immediately. She also works in the office but was attending a doctor's appointment. A bomb goes off in the office killing everyone but him. He is arrested and held for several months enduring torture from the company. His wife is missing and the company believe either he or her are traitors. He is finally released but is observed constantly. He works as a bartender, a job he held while he was attending university. He finally escapes and travels back to Europe to try to locate his wife. The story takes twists and turns as he teams up with a woman, Milia, who refuses to tell him who she works for but seems to have endless resources. A good story and I can see future novels with the same main character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lance Carlson | 1/15/2014

    " it was good..........i never 2nd guessed the correct ending. I just think these plots get sort of over long and complicated. I could have lived without the last section...............just end it in holland. IT appears that the author is leaving it open for a series.........sam and mila "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bob Mask | 1/10/2014

    " Kinda easy to anticipate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 1/8/2014

    " Adrenaline? Frenetic could be another name. Short punchy chapters, ending on a cliff hanger. A good fast paced read that looks like a set up for a new series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Farrell | 11/25/2013

    " I totally enjoyed this book...OK I freakin' loved this book. So much that I can't wait to read the next one. It's a roller coaster ride that grabs you from the first chapter and never lets you go. If you like a story with a lot of intrigue and action this book will totally give you that and more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Connie | 11/8/2013

    " I very much enjoyed this book although not as much as the one that follows it. Even though I knew a good deal of what was going to happen, there were still surprises in store. Hope he continues writing this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurel Sloan | 10/17/2013

    " Blah! This book was really long and rather boring. Will not be reading anymore of his. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 8/21/2013

    " Read this on vacation looking for a fast paced beach read. Started out great and then went downhill. Too many lame twists and far fetched boring backstory. Had too much going on and the author trying way too hard. I wanted to like this one, but wound up disappointed. :( "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allie Wadley | 8/16/2013

    " Meh. It's an interesting enough page turner, but falls victim to too many cliches to be all that great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 8/15/2013

    " Good one. Thought provoking. Continuous action; short chapters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dianna | 7/11/2013

    " Reminded me a lot of Casino Royale (the movie, not the short story). If you like spy action movies you'll like this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 6/22/2013

    " This was not the type of book that I normally read. My husband loves CIA and international thrillers, but the title drew me in. I did like the book with its twists and turns. The ending left it to continue with the character at another time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dianne | 1/27/2012

    " It was OK. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave Sherman | 7/25/2011

    " Adrenaline is a fast paced read. Sam Capra......is Jack Bauer! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carey | 8/20/2010

    " Not 'bad', just a classic 'read and forget' thriller, with stereotyped characters, macho men, beautiful women, lots of violence - ideal for long journeys. "

    " Cracking thriller that moves at a relentless pace and places the main character in some quite tense situations. Plenty of twists and turns in the plot too. "
