Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter returns with a full-throttle adventure in the FBI series featuring Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock.

Natalie Black, the U.S. ambassador to the Court of St. James, has returned to Washington, her job in jeopardy. Her fiancé, George McCallum, Viscount Lockenby, has died in a car accident, and mysterious rumors begin that she’s responsible begin to surface: she broke off the engagement and, heartbroken, he killed himself. Then someone tries to force her off the M-2 outside London. Again, rumors claim it was a sympathy ploy. When she returns to the United States, she’s nearly killed when a car tries to mow her down while she’s out for a run. No one believes her except FBI Special Agent Davis Sullivan.

Meanwhile someone is following Sherlock. A stalker? Then someone tries to shoot her from the back of a motorcycle, but the assailant gets away. Sherlock next gets a call from an Atlanta mental hospital warning her that Blessed Backman has escaped. This is not good news. Blessed is a talented psychopath out for revenge against the agents, primarily Sherlock, whom his dying mother begged him to kill since she and Savich brought down her cult.

How to find out who’s trying to kill the ambassador to the U.K.? How can they get their hands on Blessed Backman before he succeeds and kills Sherlock? The clock is ticking and the danger intensifies . . .

Could have been a 5 star

First let me say I have been a Catherine Coulter fan, since her first book was published. When her FBI thrillers came out I fell in love with Sherlock and Savich. And would immediately grab them as soon as they would come out. Until they brought in the paranormal and weird characters of the Blessed bunch. I have thrown more than one book and CD out into the garbage. I was so in hopes that they were done with that junk. And am praying that this last book will be the end to it at last. For one I think this book would have been a 5 star without the Blessed parts. Really like that they are bringing Nicholas over from England. And can see all kinds of possibilities for different really good stories.

Excellent Mystery

Another excellent mystery bring suspects from the past and new ones to light. The bombshell comes at the end which continues the readers interest to the last page.

Predictable but a fun "read"

How could the performance have been better?

I found the Renee Raudman's portions of the reading to be annoying. It was difficult to distinguish between the female characters as they all sounded weak. The characters are strong, powerful women but the vocal rendition was whispy and rather high-pitched. To me, this was very distracting. I kept thinking "I would never take this woman seriously in real-life."

Any additional comments?

Like any book series that makes it to number 18, I found it was very similar to other books in the series...like using a cookie cutter. With that said, I still enjoy the series and will at least try number 19 when it comes out (providing it is not read by Renee Raudman).

ANOTHER WINNER!

I love Catherine Coulter books, have been reading them for years. This one was just as amazing as all the rest. Not sure why there was a review that said otherwise. Same characters with some new ones added in. Great banter between Savitch and Sherlock. Family and mystery. Always someone trying to kill someone else. Just a good book, as always!

Best in this series, so far

I have read and listened to a few of these from the FBI Thriller series and other books by Catherine Coulter. Some had a male reader that dropped his tone at the end of the sentences. I found it annoying as if he was bored. Both of these readers kept me engrossed in the story!

Power Play Review

I love the FBI Series, Savage and Sherlock plus the other agents and the story lines are usually good. However I am very tired of Blessed and his storyline I hope we have seen the end of him.
