This latest installment of the Sam Capra series begins with the murder of Sam's friend Steve, who is gunned down just outside Sam's Miami bar. To find out who killed his buddy, Sam is going to go undercover into one of Miami's most well known and dangerous families.

The dysfunctional Varelas are engaged in an internal power struggle that makes Shakespeare's King Lear look like just a small family misunderstanding. Intent on avenging his buddy's death, Sam will be sucked into this deadly vortex which will also remind him of some of his own family's shortcomings.

Sam agrees to pretend to be the boyfriend of Cordelia Varela, the woman Steve was hired to protect. With access to the tycoon's Puerto Rico compound, Sam will have a ringside seat to watch the greedy Varelas self-destruct. Unfortunately this ex-CIA agent is privy to a few secrets that mean the Varelas may have to take him down too.

Jeff Abbott packs a lot of action into five days in this gut wrenching thriller that will have even those who have read Sam Capra's previous adventures gasping for breath. There's a reason Abbott has been nominated three times for the prestigious Edgar Award. As you read Inside Man, you'll understand what sets this writer apart from the rest of the pack!
