Publisher's Summary

From New York Times bestselling authors Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison comes a riveting thriller pitting special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine against the head of a private space agency who has the power to end the world as we know it.

It’s Bastille Day in France, and the private French space agency Galactus - France’s answer to Space X, owned by the eccentric treasure hunter Jean-Pierre Broussard - has just sent a satellite payload into orbit. Billed as a “communications” satellite, it harbors a frightening reality: a nuclear electromagnetic pulse has been hidden aboard.

In days, when the satellite is in position, Galactus’s head and Broussard’s second in command, Dr. Neveah Patil, will have the power to lay waste to the world with her EMP, and create her own immortality with the Holy Grail - the stones of the heavens and the very treasure Broussard has spent his life searching for.

The countdown has begun, and Special Agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine will go down to the wire to stop this heinous attack. With their signature “nonstop action with enough realism to keep you thinking and scare the daylights out of you at the same time” (Suspense Magazine), Coulter and Ellison have created a thriller to take you on a breakneck and breathtaking journey

More please

I want more of both fbi series. I worked law enforcement for over 30 years, I find the intrege fascinating. I worked and trained with agents as a bomb tech. Although the story lines are "out there", it's great to enjoy something other than the real world as I knew it!

Imagination Buster

I have enjoyed many Catherine Coulter novels and loved the idea of a Brit in the FBI. But the trend in the last two books of this series, and especially in this one, involves preposterous plotting. That is my humble opinion. Loving mysteries as I do, I know it is possible to write them without going into a parallel universe. Such stories are simply not enjoyable ( for me) as they ask me to suspend all connection to reality. The narration is very good; enjoyable. And the characters are truly likable! I root for them! Wish I could say the same for the plot. Please, please, come back to earth!

A major adrenaline rush!

I believe "The last Second" is the best Coulter/Ellison collaboration to date. Character development and snappy dialogue concurrent with all hell breaking loose kept me thoroughly ingrossed. Literally could not put it down! Listened to unabridged audio version in a day! More like this, please👍 Thanks for a wild ride! Narrators were excellent as usual.

Love This Series

Catherine Coulter and J. T. Ellison make a great writng duo. Though, Coulter is good alone too. The narrators are an outstanding team as well. Im looking forward to more First Brit in the FBI novels.

Decent narration. Garbage story

This is a case of following a series and expecting every story to be good. This one was garbage. I suffered through waiting for some surprise or amazement. Nonetheless i was disappointed to the end. The end that offered no freakin closure for one of the plot lines.

Series running out of gas

As I indicate in the title of this review, Ellison is running out of gas with this series. The narration is, as usual, excellent. But the storyline and plot points are more than fantastical. They are simply not believable in any context. The relationship between Nick and Mike which I enjoy is cloying in this book and Mike seems more besotted than really works for the ongoing health of this series. Patil is an evil cartoon character by the numbers. Sad, I really liked the other books in the series, but this may be my last read of this series.

Another Winner for Coulter & Ellison

This book is filled with action and adventure! The Fib’s kept me up all night, again. I really like the exotic places that they work in, I keep grabbing my iPhone to look up where in the world, or out of this world, they are now. From NASA to the Malaysia Air Force to France’s Air Force, this book keeps you on the edge of your seat . I cannot wait for Mike and Drummond’s next adventure! Larry S Reno, NV
