"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 a step in an extraordinary plot - and now Sam must become a new kind of hero.

Close, but not quite
I like a good thriller as much as anybody, but this one falls a little short for me. The problem? The "bad guy" dialog is, frankly, terrible. The story itself is OK, but the cheesy talk ruined the book for me. Not horrible, but there are much better out there.

This captured my attention. The writing is good, not great. I expect Abbott's writing will improve and I look forward to more stories about "Sam."
The interest in Parkour or "free running" is very cool and a thread throughout. The only other reference I know of it comes from a book by John Twelve Hawks called the Traveler. I recommend both.
Good read / listen
