Sam Capra has one reason to live: to rescue his baby son from the people who abducted him. An ex-CIA agent, Sam now owns bars around the world as cover for his real mission-working undercover for a secret network as mysterious as it is powerful, while using his skills to find his child.Now the kidnappers have offered a deadly deal: they'll surrender Sam's child...if Sam finds and murders the one man who can expose them. Teaming up with a desperate young mother whose daughter is also missing, Sam tracks his prey-and his son-across the country in a dangerous race against time, and must unravel a deadly conspiracy if he's to rescue the only person in the world that matters to him.

    Even better than the first installment

    If you read my review of Adrenaline, the first Sam Capra book of this series, you'll know that I just discovered Jeff Abbott about 2-3 days ago while stuck in bed, sick.You also know I don't want to write a review with spoilers in it.Suffice it to say that I would not have thought it possible to top Adrenaline. And, yet, here it is. Somehow, Abbott has managed to kick the adrenaline level up another notch, with this appropriately-titled follow-up on Sam Capra's attempt to find his son, and move on with his life.Though hard to believe he pulled it off, there is even more heart-pumping action, and intrigue, in this novel, which hits the ground running, and keeps heart, mind, and emotions running right up to the last minute.At this rate, I think any future installments should come with prescription heart medication.It almost makes me want to remain confined to bed for another few weeks, so I can continue to enjoy more of... 5/5 Rick Horowitz - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Parkour Hero, Massive Exciting Fights and Chases

    This is a wonderful thriller with a unique hero -- an ex-CIA agent on the run, hunting for his son and the people who have stolen him. He is also a parkour runner. Most people probably have no idea what that is. I didn't know the name, though I'd seen it demonstrated in a James Bond movie. It's where a person runs, jumps, climbs, falls over almost any object or building and at ridiculous speeds. It takes unique physical strength and endurance. Anyway . . . this is the 2nd in the Sam Capra series, and well, WELL worth reading. The plot is tight with plenty of twists and turns, including various enemies and somewhat murky good guys and women. Who does Sam trust? Who is good, who is lying to him, who is using him for their own purposes? Can he defeat the bad guys and get his son back? This book has a very satisfying conclusion with two really surprising twists at the end, that you can't see coming. Surprise is great! I love Abbott's writing style and character development... 5/5 Jackie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great story-telling and well written

    5/5 Conley J. Scott, II - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Last Minute (Sam Capra Book 2) (Kindle Edition) Great story-telling and well written. However; one has to somewhat suspend belief that Sam Capra, at such a tender age (still in his "late twenties") , could be so incredibly skilled, experienced, worldly and capable as he is. Coming from the "real world" it doesn't seem he's old enough to have such a wealth of expertise and highly developed talents. Also, the Round Table's existence needs to be made more believable (beauty marks and warts!) relative to its mission and goals. Still...a great read!

    Slack Incorporated

    Appropriately Titled

    Does exactly what the book says and gives a comprehensive last minute review of optics. Very useful for OKAPs a few weeks before.Pros: Organized/Step wise approach to teaching with some basic problems to do as you move through each lesson. Makes you feel comfortable with the basics of optics and gives you the ability to apply it to more complex problems. Concise resource very easy read in 7-8 hours and complete the entire book.Cons: Complex problems are lacking, does not have many back of the book problems for you to do. Felt more complex optics problems (prismatic effect in glasses, contact lens over correction were not covered in depth enough). Has a little coverage of some clinical optics for Oral boards but not enough to feel prepared.Overall this is a great entry review book to learn the basics of optics that will prepare you to handle most of problems you will encounter on OKAPs but if you are looking for more detailed problems and... 4/5 DrCS - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great read for review and cramming

    5/5 Surgi Mom - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Last-Minute Optics: A Concise Review of Optics, Refraction, and Contact Lenses (Paperback) Perfect read through for OKAPS and boards. This book really helped me out and I did quite well with optics on the boards. I highly recommend having a copy of this. I have taken the Guyton course too. I personally like to go through optics myself rather than be lectured at. If you understand all the concepts in this book, you should do well with optics.I really recommend spending the time with each question and really understanding each piece. Even though it is a thin book, I divided up the chapters during high study time. I also recommend going through it each time for OKAPS. Great book!

    must-have book

    5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Last-Minute Optics: A Concise Review of Optics, Refraction, and Contact Lenses (Paperback) Used this for OKAP and then real board exam prep and it's the main reason I did so well on optics. This is a comprehensive optics review that is incredibly high yield with information presented in a way that is easy to read and understand. It's short enough that reading it close to your exam so that the information is fresh on your mind is doable. I haven't taken oral boards yet but will plan to review this book for those as well.

    Not for Beginners

    2/5 Amy H. (Ventura, CA United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Last-Minute Knitted Gifts (Hardcover) I'm not sure how I got the idea that quick meant easy, but I got this book guessing I could do some of the projects. I'm an advanced beginner. I went through every page in this book and read many of the patterns. I would have a hard time figuring them out. Also, every pattern suggests a specific yarn without noting the size (worsted weight, DK, etc.) which is super annoying because you can't figure out what the size to substitute without finding it on ravelry. And they're expensive yarns to buy. The formatting of the patterns is all in paragraphs, so difficult for a beginning to read, and even the different yarns for a pattern are printed all together (like sentences) rather than an easy to read list. I would say I'd put this away in my knitting box in hopes of using it someday, but given the other reviews saying the first edition is full of mistakes, I'll return it instead.

    This is my favorite knitting book- and I have a ton of them.

    The experienced knitter's opinion:Since I first wrote a review on this book, my knitting skills have improved and some of it is due to this book. I had to learn to find alternate yarns for patterns- and I've made the children's cotton hat, the baby bonnet, some of the pick-and-choose hats, and both the men and women's wrist warmers from patterns in this book. Because it has different sizes for the same pattern, I've learned how to adjust cast-on numbers easily based on the yarn at hand. I know if I need something that I can whip out in a day or two, I just grab this book for ideas on how many stitches to cast on- and away I go.The Rookie Opinion from a couple of years ago:The patterns are excellent and there is a pattern for several things I had thought to make in the future. The only problem I see is that the patterns always use a high-end or specialty yarn that aren't easily accessible and the yarn weight isn't given in a plain manner. I am finding myself... 5/5 Lisa Tankersley (Cincinnati, OH, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    only quick if you have the yarn handy

    When I was describing the patterns from this book to my husband and noting all of the cashmere and alpaca the author was knitting with, he looked at the title and said "Last minute gifts if you happen to have $1000 of yarn lying around."This author really likes luxury yarns. That's certainly a fine thing and probably a good thing for the photo aspect of the book. However, I really fault the author for not providing a couple of substitute yarn suggestions or trying out some cheaper alternatives for us. I mean, I really like the floor cushion idea, but the author chose to knit this in blue sky alpaca. I love blue sky yarns, too, but for a floor cushion? Come on, just tell me which inexpensive acrylic blend I can use instead. Also, for the children's pattterns, I wish there was more detail given about sizing. I mean, how long do you make a scarf for a 5yr old versus a 10yr old? When you spend good money on a pattern book, the author should make some effort to make sure the... 3/5 L.
