    Plenty of Exciting Scenes, but not Ms. Coulter's best.!

    Sometimes I enjoy fast paced thrillers, but when I want a well-thought out mystery novels then I read a book by Catherine Coulter. I have enjoyed her FBI series books with Sherlock and Dillon and in "Double Take" is was good to see Cheney and Dix make their return after appearing in Point Blank, which happens to be one of my favorites.

    Overall, I didn't think this was one of Ms. Coulter's best books. I had a hard time keeping track of the characters and almost got to the point of keeping a score card as to "who" was "who". For me this "family tree" of characters caused a lot frustration on my part. However, let me say that mid-way through the book the story moved along at a brisk pace giving me plenty of exciting scenes. Soon, I found myself reading page and page until I finished it. Except for a few "kinks" in the story Catherine Coulter didn't disappoint me in this terrific story. And as always I look forward to reading her next novel.

    DOUBLE TAKE

    I love Coulter and her books, this one incorporated a bunch of new characters that my lead into other books. Cheney & Julia and the whold psychi realm may be interesting. A must read book

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    Unbelievable...and by that, I mean literally unbelievable. <BR/><BR/>A rundown of the first chapter: An FBI agent sees an unknown woman get punched in the face, and then the assailant pulls a knife on her. When said FBI agent yells at the assailant, he runs away, after tossing the woman over the side of the pier into the bay. FBI agent, because he's not only an FBI agent but also an honorable man, rescues woman from the ocean, and revives her with CPR. Then, because she tells him to, he doesn't call the police. Instead, FBI agent carries (still) unknown woman to his personal vehicle, drives (still) unknown woman to her mansion home, takes (still) unknown woman upstairs to her bedroom and her master bath, then strips down (still) unknown woman and himself to their underwear and gets into a warm shower with her. Then, FBI agent puts on men's clothes that (still) unknown woman provides for him, and decides he will now call someone he knows in the local police department. <BR/><BR/>And then, finally, finds out who unknown woman is. <BR/><BR/>T-o-t-a-l-l-y unbelievable. Not to mention that the dialogue throughout the book is so stilted that I found myself groaning more often than grinning. Where I used to love the Dillon and Savich stories, Ms. Coulter's newer works have left me longing for the books of old. <BR/><BR/>If you must, check DOUBLE TAKE out from your local library. Or wait until it comes out in paperback. In my opinion, it's definitely not worth the hardcover price.

    Very confusing

    The story was really fast, but it was really complicated. Somehow everyone in the freakin book is somehow related, and all of their names are very similar, so its hard to keep up. UGGG it was just very disappointing!!!

    I have read various books out of this Savich/Sherlock series. Not in order & not all of them. Double Take disappointed me with its complex criss-cross storylines. The villian is easily picked out and the Cheney/Julia characters were not given full attention. So much seemed missing. I think the book should have started w/Julia's husbands death rather then her. Plus how many women can look alike..sort of a stretch but I guess Coulter wanted closure for Dix from a previous book. Don't know why as it just made my eyes cross trying to wade my way through a book that had way too many characters that were not given enough to make them real & relevate.
