Suspenseful from beginning to end! Wow! What a book! The action is jam packed and the book has more twists and turns than that famous street in San Francisco. Judge Ramsey Hunt is shot at home shortly after halting a murder trial he has been presiding over. The Federal Prosecutor is missing and the defendants are sitting pretty. U.S. Federal Marshall Eve Barbieri is one of the dozens of law enforcement people called in when Judge Hunt is attacked. The FBI, SFPD, and even the CIA make an appearance. Eve has a close relationship with Judge Hunt and his entire family which makes this case all the more important to her. Around the same time, FBI Agent Dillon Savich gets a cryptic note that might be a threat. When he and his wife, fellow FBI Agent Sherlock hear about Hunt, they head off to be part of the team working on the case. They bring their five year old son, Sean along with them as Sherlock's parents live in San Francisco, and the whole family knows the Hunt family well. Harry Christoff is the FBI Agent assigned to liaison with Eve and the sparks fly from the first moment they meet. However, the romance aspect of this book takes a back seat to the Hunt case. The presumed attacker is a busy guy or maybe gal and everyone involved is in danger throughout the entire book. The sender of the note to Savich makes an appearance and adds more excitement to the mix. One of the things I love about this series is the continuity of the characters. Several of the ones we have met before in earlier books make an appearance and it is never gratuitous. The new characters blend in seamlessly and you learn enough about them to care fairly quickly. Of course, Sherlock and Savich are the linchpin of the story and they have some scary times in this book but their relationship is a strong as ever. I remember Ramsey, Molly and twelve year old Emma from The Target, book Three in the series, and I also remembered how much I enjoyed that book. Emma is the center of a delightful subplot involving her being a piano prodigy that adds a nice light touch to offset the tenseness of the story. Sean’s crush on her and future plans to marry the “older woman” someday is just too cute. This series just keeps getting better and better which each book. My only complaint is that there is way too long between books!

My daughter introduced me to these books and I have loved following the cast from one book to another, adding more as they go. I can't wait for the next one to be out.

Catherine Coulter's books are worth reading. If you like a little romance and a lot of suspense this book is for you.

My rating: 3.5 I've been with this series since the very beginning and as it's progressed it's morphed from suspence/thriller with romance (and some smexy scenes) thrown in to pretty much just suspense/thriller. There's always still a couple that hook up, but those smexy scenes we love so much have dwindled down so now they're just alluded too and we have to use our imaginations to picture what's happening. That's ok...I don't have to have sex in every book I read, but the series has evolved over time and sometimes I miss those earlier times. It's the characters I really love in this series, in fact, there's a point in Backfire where I almost started screaming at my Nook because I was so scared about the fate of one of the characters. Sherlock and Savich are back as the main characters and we we also get to spend time with Judge Ramsey Hunt and his family-we were introduced to them in The Target (book 3 of the series). I felt the humor was a little forced in this installment, maybe it's just me but I just didn't find the quips as funny as I have in previous books. There are several plot lines going on at once and, for me, few scenes just felt like they were in the wrong the place...they could have been placed just a chapter or two earlier and the story would have flowed a bit smoother. I'm so attached to the characters in the series that I will happily wait for the next one...I just have to see what happen next.

BACKFIRE -- Stunning and shocking! Wow what a thrilling, suspenseful, fast paced page turner. It is filled with many twist and turns from beginning to end. When I finished the book I felt like I just stepped off a Roller Coaster windblown, frazzled and weak in the knees. What a ride! Catherine Coulter has written another spellbinding Savich and Sherlock FBI series thriller. It was filled with so many surprise twist and turns that I never seen coming. Nothing was as it seemed. The plot was clever and cleverly written. Well done Ms. Coulter.

Backfire kept me on the edge of my seat and laughing out loud at the same time. Savich and Sherlock at their best. I loved it.

Gets off to a great start. Mostly sustaiins it. The reappearance of their hypnotic nemesis is boring. Is he hopefully gone for good this time?

Back Fire by Catherine Coulter: Special agent Dillon Savich receives a note and it only says "FOR WHAT YOU DID YOU DESERVE THIS' Is it a threat against him or Agent Lacey Sherlock. Payback for what. They get a call after the note saying that Judge Ramsey Hunt has been shoot in the back, lies near death. Why would anyone shoot the Judge. I enjoyed the book very much. She has done good job again.

Always a pleasure to read about the adventures of Sherlock and Savich and, of course, their son Sean!
