Adrenaline by Jeff Abbott | LibraryThing

Adrenaline by Jeff Abbott | LibraryThing:

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 locked in a dungeon, where he and Lucy are accused of being traitors.  After being held several months being tortured, all the while maintaining his innocence, he escapes and flees to Rotterdam with the assistance of a shadowy group which he doesn’t understand, but whose help certainly willing to accept.  Weird weapons,  groups within groups, psychotic killers, Patty Hearst parallels, and parktour (I had never heard of this, slug that I am.)  Not to mention Roger Cadet.

A bit too James Bond at times, nevertheless a fun time-waster.  This book delivers what the title suggests;  it's a frenetic rush.  3.5 stars rounded up to 4 since I happen to be in a good mood this morning.
