A good follow up to the other books in the Sam Capra series. It was satisfying and fast moving enough for me to plow through in a day. It has left me wanting another Sam Capra story.

I have loved every book in the Sam Capra series - this was no exception. Another winner by Jeff Abbott!

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.

Reviewed by Katelyn Hensel for Readers' Favorite In Downfall, the latest from Jeff Abbott, all Sam Capra wants is to have a quiet, normal life so he can raise his son. Unfortunately, normal gets shot to hell when one beautiful, leggy woman walks into his bar. Diana is gorgeous, and if that isn't enough to throw Sam off at first sight, the fact that she is being chased by gunmen definitely attracts his attention. I'm a pretty big Jeff Abbott fan, having listened to and reviewed several of his books in the past. Downfall was no disappointment, as it had the same thrilling story, and adventure style mystery that I have grown to really appreciate when it comes to my suspense thrillers. He just has this way of creating intricate, yet interlocking story lines that really makes me go "Wow...how did he come up with that???"  Sam was a very realistic character. A lot of the time, he wasn't quite sure where his loyalties were, and that was actually okay. He went back and forth quite a bit about what he was going to do and who he was really backing, but you know what...wouldn't you do that too in such a stressful situation? I thought Sam was REALLY great because you feel as if you might bump into him in some random bar.  Jeff definitely has a whole cast of "Jeffisms" and once you've read a few of his books you can start to point them out. There isn't anything bad with that, in fact, I tend to like finding "author-isms" because it makes me feel I really know the author's works. Another winner from Jeff Abbott.

Well it's one of those books that you really care about the hero and want to know what's going to happen next but it is so unrealistic in almost every confrontation that it almost makes you want to stop...but not quite. Sam is so loveable but so superhuman as to make the stories not quite believable. I mean he gets the crap beat out of him to the point of broken bones and then picks himself up and continues into another "battle" just a few hours later. I'm debating about reading the next in the series. But I probably will because I want to know what happens next. I wish Mr. Abbott would just make the fight scenes a little bit more believable.

The plot was offbeat and compelling, but most of the characters central to the story were shallow.  I was entertained, but not to the degree that I'll read another of his books.
