Reviews Inside Man (Sam Capra, #4)

  • Charlene
    This Sam Capra novel involved a crime family and it flew by as fast as I could read it. I will continue with the series. The regular characters are good, and the new situations this ex-CIA guy finds himself in are fairly dynamic.

    This reminds me of Reacher, by Lee Childs.So, on the the Reacher scale, from 'remotely possible' to 'out-right impossible',this one goes full ORI.But, it's a fun, fast, good read.I'll read more Jeff Abbott.Notes while reading:Sam Capra #4, but my first.Ex CIA, maybe ex Round Table.Has some safe houses, disguised as bars.When the flame of righteousness burns, watch out bad-guys.Good friend Steve is gunned down; but why? And who?
  • Pete
    I found this fast paced thrill a minute story to be preposterous . That some one so young ( mid twenties) could be that experienced , knowledgeable , and savvy seemed more than a stretch, let alone the situations he got into and out of at a rapid pace.

    I received this e-galley free from Net Gallery and Grand Central Publishing in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for the opportunity.Well, Sam Capra is back. This time he has to change his name to Sam Chevalier, one he has used in the past during his CIA days. This time, one of Sam's best friends, who is like a father figure to him asks him "who are you really, I need your help". Because he is trying to get Sam to help him in his latest ad...

    This was a much anticipated 4th book in this series for me! Sam Capra's life has settled into bar owning. Then his friend Steve is murdered right outside his bar and he is going to find out who and why. Steve was protecting a beautiful woman who has her own secrets. Sam goes undercover to avenge his friend's death and winds up in the middle of a successful and dangerous family. His investigation might be their undoing, and his!I've loved Sam Capr...

    I received this book from Goodreads for an honest review.Steve Robles is one of Sam Capra’s closest friends. When he is murdered outside of Sam’s bar, there is only one choice for Sam. Find out who killed him and make them pay. Using the deep-cover alias Sam Chevalier, he runs headlong into the powerful Varela family. He decides to poke a stick at a hornet nest and falls head-first into a lion’s den. But, Sam Capra never gives up because he...
  • Neyly
    Warning: Inside Man ends with a cliffhanger. Know going in.Pro: Fast-paced with a likeable main character. Overall, a good "weekend" mystery/thrillerCon: The action jumps the shark in the last quarter. (view spoiler)[Sam gets transported (in a spacesuit, no less) to a prison hidden in the jungles of Brazil. There he finds himself under the control of its evil warden Nanny. Sam escapes, freeing other prisoners at the same time, by means of a book ...
  • Scott Bell
    This is the fourth run of Sam Capra and I have to say, it's about three too many.Capra is an uninspiring main character with a less-than-compelling motivation. He whines about his son, yet spends no time with the child. Every three chapters, Abbott wants to remind us that he's conflicted about leaving the boy in the care of Leonie, so he throws in a paragraph or two about how bad he feels about it.Jeff Abbott is a terrific thriller writer, but he...
  • Andy Ryan
    Quite formulaic till 2/3 of the way through then the plot twists and turns and snakes around, raising it from "meh okay" to "yep, I enjoyed that". You kinda know what you're getting with Jeff Abbott- and for that I wasn't disappointed.
  • Cheryl Kage
    I don’t know if what I am typing is considered spoilers so I’m erring on the side of caution here.So here's the skinny ... Sam Capra is a bitch. A whiny, conscience burdened, STUPID, trusting, SHORT SIGHTED bitch. I absolutely can NOT accept him as a former CIA operative. I CAN accept him as a desk jockey working at the CIA who accidentally stumbled into some things and just keeps stumbling through all of the other books. An UNTRAINED desk jo...
  • Deanna
    Maybe it wasn't a great idea to re-read books 1-3 in the Sam Capra series before reading this one. I might be experiencing a little burnout so this book only gets 3 stars.In a nutshell, Capra gets involved with a prestigious family and tries to unravel the multitude of secrets they keep from one another. This is all to further his own purpose of getting to the bottom causes of a death of a loved one. Like the previous books, Capra has to rely on ...

  • Rah Barnett
    I like Sam for the most part in all the books, but I love Mila more. Sam Capra is the anti-Jack Reacher, he cares to a fault and ’boom’, he fighting the bad guys. Although, I have not reviewed the first three books (I still may), Sam Capra is a winner, a bit whinny about his personal issues, but still a winner. However, in every book in the Sam Capra series, the villains have been amazing, they are calm-cool, like Hans Gruber or Hannibal Lect...
  • Rich
    I enjoyed Jeff Abbott's style of writing very much.When I opened the book and saw that it was 380+ pages,I was apprehensive.HOWEVER, his style is simple, with short chaptersand it moves along quickly.ALSO, it was not graphic like a James Patterson book.I was happy that it was NOT inundated with vulgarity.I enjoyed the story and was always happy to begin anotherchapter on a subsequent day.
  • Jeanne
    This is my favorite in the series so far. I think Jeff Abbott is hitting his stride finally and this novel hangs together well. Sam Capra delves deep into the Varelas family who he suspects were behind the murder of his friend. Rather than good guys and bad guys being easy to distinguish, in this book you can't always tell which is which and that adds to the suspense.
  • Carol
    First time reader of J. Abbott but have now ordered his next book. He is that good. I thought the "thriller" title was far fetched until half way through the story, when it did earn that title. I thought wow, how you going to get out of this one Sam? This was a Sam Capra number four in the series. Sam Capra owns a number of bars around the world. Just a simple bartender. Maybe, maybe not.
  • Mike
    I really liked this. It's intense, and there's some torture which is something I don't like in books, but in this one it worked alright. The torture section isn't too long and it's not as depressing as some other books.This book is a tragedy.Literally. It's a Shakespearean tragedy.It's King Lear.I should have caught it WAY before I did, which was around the 40% mark. I mean one of the characters is named Cordelia. And her father has a vast empire...
  • Bayarea2008
    It's hard to believe so many people enjoyed this book. I've read others in the Capra series and they seemed to have at least a thread of believability. This book has none, and I can't finish it, it's so absurd. Another reviewer summed up this book with one word, preposterous.
  • Autumn Chastain
    Wow amazing book in an amazing pace and fast read once I started...couldn’t put this down....the main character Sam gets himself into another dangerous situation....will he make it out ok? And the ending was shocking and a cliffhanger...can’t wait to read the next book
  • Rod
    Quite good. First of his that I've read. I may try to read the books prior in the series.
  • amandra
    4.75 that ending though OH MY GOD!!
  • Cat Kelley
    Was surprised it was a cliffhanger but very excited to read the next installment. I'm getting it now.
  • Kathy
    Good book and good story line. Enjoyable. Shocking ending. Recommend to thrill seekers.
  • Sheila
    Sam is out to seek revenge on those that killed his friend.
  • Mark Pool
    I'm not a big fan of Mr. Abbott, but I do like one character he's created: Mila. She's nowhere in evidence in this book.
  • Rebecca Sanders
    4.75. Another fantastic Sam Capra adventure! GREAT READ!
