Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Bestseller Coulter's riveting 13th FBI thriller (after TailSpin) opens with a bang as psychic FBI agent Dillon Savich thwarts a gang of gun-totting robbers attempting to hold up the First Union Bank of Washington, D.C. Three days later, seven-year-old Autumn Backman, who sees Dillon on TV, sends him a telepathic message that she's in danger. Though eager to help Autumn, Dillon is busy tracking a bank robber who escaped, a teenage girl now leaving a trail of bodies in her wake. Meanwhile, in Titusville, Va., Autumn's mother reports her daughter missing to sheriff Ethan Merriweather. After finding Autumn, Ethan discovers her sinister uncle, Blessed, has evil designs on his psychic niece. Before Dillon and his fellow FBI agent and wife, Lacey Sherlock, can get to Titusville, Autumn and her mother flee. Well-developed characters and an expertly paced plot that builds to a breathtaking conclusion make this one of the best in this paranormal suspense series. (June)

Meet the Author

Catherine  Coulter
Catherine Coulter is the author of sixty-five novels, almost all of them New York Times bestsellers. She earned her reputation writing historical romances, but in recent years turned her hand to penningwith great successcontemporary suspense novels. The Cove spent nine weeks on The New York Times paperback bestseller list and sold more than one million copies. The Maze was Coulter's first book to land on The New York Times hardcover bestseller list.A review of The Maze in Publisher's Weekly stated that it "was gripping enough to establish Coulter firmly in this genre." Coulter continues to live up to that promise with twelve more New York Times bestselling FBI thrillers, including her most recent title Whiplash. Coulter's 15th FBI thriller Split Second will be released in 2011.



Catherine Coulter's first novel, The Autumn Countess, was published at the end of 1978 when she had just reached puberty. It was a Regency romance because, as she says, "as any publisher will tell you, it's best to limit the unknowns in a first book, and not only had I grown up reading Georgette Heyer, but I earned my M.A. degree in 19th century European history."



Following The Autumn Countess (a Gothic masquerading as a Regency, she says), Catherine wrote six more Regency romances. In 1982, she published her first long historical, Devil's Embrace. She has continued to write long historicals, interspersing them with hardcover contemporary novels, beginning with False Pretenses in 1988.



She pioneered the trilogy in historical romance, each of them very popular. They include: Song, Star, Magic, Night, Bride, Viking, and Legacy trilogies. She enjoys trilogies because she doesn't have to say good-bye to the characters and neither do the readers.



Catherine grew up on a horse ranch in Texas. She graduated from the University of Texas and received her masters at Boston College. Prior to becoming a full-time writer, she worked on Wall Street as a speechwriter for a company president. She loves to travel and ski, reads voraciously, and has a reputation for telling jokesbelieving the publishing business is too crazy not to laugh. Catherine lives in Marin County, California with her physician husband and her three cats.



Catherine Coulter loves to hear from readers. You can e-mail her at ReadMoi@aol.com.





Biography

The author of dozens of bestsellers, Catherine Coulter made her Romance debut with 1978's The Autumn Countess, a fast-moving story she describes as "a Gothic masquerading as a Regency." Six more Regency romances followed in quick succession; then, in 1982, she penned her first full-length historical novel, Devil's Embrace. She counts several trilogies among her most popular historicals, notably the Bride Trilogy -- which, in turn, spawned an ongoing story sequence featuring the beloved Sherbrooke family of Regency-era England.

In 1988, Coulter tried her hand at contemporary romance with a twisty little page-turner called False Pretenses. Her fans ate it up and begged for more. Since then, she has interspersed historicals with contemporary romantic thrillers (like the novels in her bestselling FBI series) in one of the most successful change-ups in the history of romance publishing.

    Nook (or any e-book problems)----I love Catherine Coulters's FBI series, but I have a problem waiting on the new books to come out on e-book at a reasonable price.

    We bought 2 Nooks from Barnes and Nobles and they knew I was waiting on the new one to come out this month. Little did I know, alot of my favorite authors don't allow the e-book for sale for over a year and then it is still more than the hardback and MUCH more than the paperbacks. We got these nooks so we could read anywhere, anytime. Unfortunately, you just can't get all of the books you want to read on e-books for a long time with some authors or publishers.

    Same old story

    Well, after reading 4 chapters I already knew who was ending up with whom. The characters seem to never change and the plot is soooo predictable. This book is good for falling asleep at night, especially if you read more than one of her books since they are basically all the same and after reading the first 3 you know what will happen in all of them.
    So if you need a book were you do not have to think a lot definitely get this one, very light reading.

    Much of the same

    The author has a very readable writing style, and when the FBI series first came out that style made her stories different and exciting. Time has made many of her books formulaic. They are still very interesting, but those who have read most of her FBI series can predict the next page and then the next and so forth. Worth reading, but not the fresh writer of some years ago.

    Extremely disappointed

    I love the FBI series and the characters but this book is horrible. There is very little of Savage and Dillion until quite a way into the book and the "pscho" factor gives is a totally unrealistically premise. Nuts.

    Another e book ripoff

    Again,another author and publisher that apparently are not supportive of the e-book market. This book is available for $8.99 in paperback on-line but is $18.99 for an e-book. There are so many good authors and books out there I don't feel it's necessary to purchase from these authors any longer in any format.

    I am a big fan of English mysteries so it was great to find an american author that I really liked. I could not put the book down and read the whole book in 24 hours. I will read #1-12 series within the next month or two.
