Overview

The police are convinced that Julia Ransom was guilty of the brutal murder of her husband, renowned psychic August Ransom. But after six months of investigation and media frenzy, she is free of their scrutiny, because of the lack of evidence. One afternoon she walks from her Pacific Heights home to Fisherman’s Wharf, alone, unwatched - and, she realizes, happy. Standing at the railing on Pier 39, she savors the sounds around her - tourists, countless seals on the barges - and for a moment enjoys the sheer normalcy of it all.

It suddenly comes to an end when a respectable-looking man distracts her with conversation before striking her unconscious and heaving her over the railing into San Francisco Bay. If it weren’t for Special Agent Cheney Stone, Julia would’ve drown. Cheney quickly realizes the attempt on Julia’s life has to connect to the murder of her husband, and reopens the investigation with the SFPD.

Meanwhile, in Maestro, Virginia, Sheriff Dixon Noble - last seen in Point Blank - learns about a woman named Charlotte Pallack, whose extraordinary resemblance to his vanished wife, Christie, gone for three years, sends him across the country. Although in his heart he knows that this woman can’t possibly be his missing wife, Dix is compelled to see her with his own eyes.

In San Francisco, Dix’s and Cheney’s paths cross, brought together by FBI Special Agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock. All four begin to unlock the mystery behind Charlotte Pallack’s identity, as well as the forces behind Julia Ransom’s attempted murder and the vicious murder of her husband.

The most fascinating aspect of the case is the extraordinary cast of psychics they meet as they push deep into the intriguing and complex world of visions, mind benders, and communications to the dead.

As the stakes and the body count rise, Savich, Sherlock, Dix, and Cheney fight for answers - and their lives.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

With this romantic suspense novel, best-selling author Coulter returns to her FBI series, last visited with Point Blank. Most of the characters from the previous books return, including Sheriff Dixon Noble, from Maestro, VA. The story has two separate plot lines. In the first, the FBI, led by Special Agent Cheney Stone, investigates an assassin's multiple attempts to kill Julia Ransom, a widow whose professional psychic husband, August, was recently murdered. Trying to locate Julia's stalker, Cheney is drawn into the August case, as well as into the world of psychics. The second plot concerns Sheriff Noble's wife, who has been missing for three years. He is investigating Charlotte Pallack, a San Francisco woman who strongly resembles his wife, but Charlotte denies any connection. Inevitably, the FBI crosses paths with the sheriff, and they work together to solve both mysteries. Sandra Burr and Phil Gigante read the female and male voices, respectively. The large number of characters and the switching back and forth between the two stories can be somewhat confusing. Still, this will be popular in public libraries; recommended.

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.

I simply love this series, it's got super smart characters and the words in the book, seem to be a play I am watching. The only problem with these stories is that for me , once I begin them I have to read them all the way through.
