Review
  • In the middle of the night, a man invades the Georgetown home of FBI Special Agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich, targeting their five-year-old son, Sean, and escaping after a potentially deadly confrontation. Two days later a man in a rowboat on a Maryland lake strikes his passenger with an oar and dumps the body overboard, a murder witnessed by Police Chief Ty Christie from her lakeside house. The perpetrator in both cases turns out to be Victor Nesser, recently escaped from a mental institution. The cases become intertwined when the rowboat is discovered to have been rented by a FBI agent on a holiday; after nearly killing the agent, Nesser stole the boat. Then, as the lake is dragged, skulls and bones turn up, signaling either the work of a serial killer or gross violations by the local crematorium, with the only clue a gold belt buckle bearing a Star of David. Action is nonstop in this latest entry in Coulter’s FBI Thriller series (after Enigma, 2017). Perfect reading for the beach and beyond. -- Michele Leber (Reviewed 7/1/2018) (Booklist, vol 114, number 21, p25)
  • At the start of bestseller Coulter’s pulse-pounding 22nd FBI thriller (after 2017’s Enigma), a beeping security monitor wakes up married FBI agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich late one night in their Washington, D.C., home. Sherlock grabs a gun and goes to check on their young son, Sean. In the boy’s bedroom, she confronts an armed intruder, who jumps out a window and flees after a tense standoff. Savich and Sherlock fear that the intruder will be back to try to do Sean harm. Two days later, in Willicott, Md., police chief Ty Christie observes two figures in a rowboat on Lake Massey as one of them hits the other over the head with an oar. The attacker tosses the body overboard. Since the victim, later identified as Octavia Ryan, was a federal prosecutor, the FBI take over the investigation. Expert sleuths Savich and Sherlock, with help from their computer MAX, find strong evidence that Octavia’s killer and Sean’s potential assailant are the same person. Coulter fans will have a tough time putting this one down. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group. (July) --Staff (Reviewed 05/28/2018) (Publishers Weekly, vol 265, issue 22, p)
  • An ex-con seeking revenge, human bones cluttering a lake bottom, and a trussed-up victim starving to oblivion in a closet—according to Coulter's July 2017 newsletter, these are some of the creepy details you'll find in the next in her New York Times best-selling "FBI Thriller" series. --Barbara Hoffert (Reviewed 02/15/2018) (Library Journal, vol 143, issue 3, p42)
