A great start to a new series. The Final Cut is book one in a series introducing Det. Chief Inspector Nicholas Drummond of New Scotland Yard. DCI Drummonds ends up coming over the pond to investigate the theft of the Koh-I-Noor diamond from the Queen Mother's Crown while it is on exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum. One of the wrinkles in the theft is the possibility that the Scotland Yard officer who came to coordinate security might have been part of the plot prior to being murdered.

Nicholas is partnered with FBI Agent Michaela (Mike) Caine to work on the case with assistance from favorite Coulter characters Savich and Sherlock. The prime suspect is a famous thief known as the Fox who spent two year inserting herself into the exhibit and planning the theft.

Ms. Coulter has collaborated with J.T. Ellison, a well-known mystery writer, to create this new series. I really enjoyed the intricate details of how the theft was done and how the Fox set up the whole operation. Nicholas and Mike are always one step behind the Fox and end up chasing her all the way to Europe. I also liked the interplay between Nicholas, who is a bit of a rule bender, and Mike who isn't. As the bodies began piling up, the suspense quotient rose as well.

There is a hint of future romantic possibilities with Nicholas and Mike but the book is really focused on the theft of the diamond and the motive of the person who has commissioned the Fox to do the theft. There is a significant twist towards the end of the book involving a secondary character and the ending is left open for one of the main characters in a surprisingly satisfying way.
One of the best things about these collaborations is enjoying an author that you have read before, in my case the FBI series by Ms. Coulter, and discovering a new author who has lots of books that you can read. Add to the mix an excellent book to begin the new series and it’s a win-win situation.

    A keeper

    I stayed up all night reading this book. I kept on telling myself
    just a few more pages but it ended up an all nighter instead.

    great combined effort by Catherine Coulter and J. T. Ellison. The story line and characters were fast moving, constantly changing and kept one on the edge of your seat! can't wait for the next book to come out.

    Great new characters!

    I really enjoyed these new characters, and look forward to the next book. This is similar to David Baldacci's King & Maxwell series, only lighter.

    Worth reading if you like mysteries, and Savich and Sherlock, although they aren't the main characters in this one, they are in it.

    Great new character!

    Love both Catherine Coulter and J. t. Ellison books. This was an excellent book and a good addition to the FBI series cast of characters. I look forward to more with Nicolas Drummond. Held my interest to the very end.
