Sam Capra is on a one-man mission to find his brother . . .
And to stop a war.

THE FIRST ORDER
Two brothers. One dead, executed by extremists on a grainy video. The other forged into a top undercover agent. But now, Sam Capra has reason to believe that his brother, Danny, may be alive. And if Danny has been living a secret life these past years, where has he been--and what has he become?
Sam's desperate search for his brother leads him into a modern heart of darkness: the Russian elite inner circle, a group of ruthless ex-KGB billionaires who owe fealty to Russia's corrupt president, Morozov. One of these men wants Morozov dead. And Danny will be the one to kill him--on American soil.
To save his brother--and to save the world from certain war--Sam, along with his mysterious partner, Mila, must stop Danny from killing Morozov. The mission will take Sam from the slums of Pakistan to the hipster galleries of Brooklyn to the Caribbean playgrounds of the superrich. And as Sam untangles the secret past locked in his brother's heart, he may be forced to make a choice between his brother--and the greater good . . .

I thought this was an excellent sequel to "The Inside Man". There was no lack of action and intrigue. I expect we'll see another book - Sam working for "The Church" and finding Mila. There is some uncertainty about Daniel and, at some time, Sam's comatose wife might resurface. We'll see...

I didn't like this one as much as the others in this series. I liked that Sam was trying to find his brother, but I didn't care for the Russian oligarchs theme (he sure used that term a lot in this book). The first 3/4 of the book I had to force my way through. Seemed liked it dragged on longer than necessary. Last 100 pages were good and made it worth my time.

Family is one of the central themes in THE FIRST ORDER, author Jeff Abbott’s fifth installment in the ex-CIA Sam Capra thriller series. The title refers to the Capra family motto, “we don’t ever leave each other behind”. In this latest novel Sam searches for his older brother, Danny, who was presumably executed by fanatics, but may now be alive after all. While looking for Danny, Sam must thwart an assassination plot against the Russian President. Our hero is rejoined by his mysterious partner, Mila and the sexual tension between the two ramps up a notch. Along the way they encounter cold-blooded ex-KGB billionaire families and their employees. As in earlier novels, the plot moves (for the most part) at a brisk pace with plenty of action, political twists, exotic locations, glam, and romance to satisfy a wide audience. THE FIRST ORDER is recommended for those seeking a good escapist read.
