Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Abduction

Nathan has been seeing a psychiatrist, Dr. Bennet for his nightmares. One day, when he is paired with classmate Karen on a sociology project about missing children, he finds an online post of a missing child that looks exactly like him. He digs deeper and confronts his parents, who admit that he's adopted. Soon, strange men arrive at their home, and his parents fight them off, but are killed. Nathan and Karen escape to a hospital and are contacted by a CIA official Burton who warns him of further danger. Dr. Bennet arrives, and takes the two in, and tells Nathan that his real dad Martin was a CIA agent who stole a list of corrupt CIA officials. Now, a Serbian terrorist Kozlow is after him, to flush Martin out of hiding, and to get the list. It seems that Bennet, and Nathan's adoptive parents were CIA operatives tasked to protect Nathan. At a safehouse, Nathan obtains a phone, which he later learns, contains the data that everyone is after. He does not trust Burton. Meanwhile, Kozlow threatens to kill Karen's parents if the list isn't delivered to him. They agree to make an exchange at a baseball game. At the stadium, Nathan has a close call with Kozlow, but unknown to Nathan, Martin is at the site, and kills Kozlow for him. Burton, apparently part of the corrupt list asks for the phone, but Martin takes it as Burton is arrested. Martin never shows himself to Nathan, and instead calls him to explain and apologize for being an absentee dad to give him closure.

Best part of story, including ending: It's a cat and mouse game where you don't know who to trust.

Best scene in story: When the seemingly normal parents start doing hand to hand combat to the baddies who arrive at the house.

Opinion about the main character: Nathan is a natural at being an action guy like his dad, he seems slightly unfazed by the danger surrounding him.
