The first time she spoke to him was at midnight.

Seven-year-old Autumn Backman needed a hero. When she saw Special Agent Dillon Savich on TV after he’d brought down bank robbers in a Georgetown bank, she knew she’d found him. She called Savich, but she didn’t use the phone.

They were burying dead people in my daddy’s grave . . . they’re coming after us. Please help me.
Who’s they?
Blessed, he’s coming.

Ethan Merriweather, sheriff of Titusville, Virginia, a small mountain town near the Titus Hitch Wilderness, goes looking for a missing little girl. Soon after he finds her, Ethan realizes that Autumn has brought him a huge problem – a relentless madman who has the ability to control others simply by looking at them. And the madman is after her and her mom.

It’s Uncle Blessed, and he wants Autumn.

When Savich answers Autumn’s call, she tells him Blessed is from Bricker’s Bowl, Georgia. Savich and Sherlock go to Blessed’s home, learn about his brother, Grace, and meet their mother, Shepherd. Savich soon realizes the only way to stop Blessed is to “cut off the snake’s head.”

Back in Titusville, Ethan, Autumn, and her mother, Joanna, are forced to hide from Blessed and Grace in the wilderness. Ethan knows the brothers will never give up their insane pursuit for Autumn.

It’s a race to stop the madness, or the madness will destroy them all.

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.

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.

This was an urgent page turner, just the kind I all of Coulter's books are! Another fabulous one I recently read that knocked me off my feet and I'm still thinking about it, EXPLOSION IN PARIS by LINDA MASEMORE PIRRUNG.....Am seriously thinking of reading it again, already!!! Check out the reviews!!! They hooked ME!!

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.

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.

Ms. Coulter had me from the first page to the very last one. Read this book in ten hours straight. I couldn't put the book down it was so addicting. I have read everyone of her FBI books and I can't wait for the next one to come out.

This is another thrilling FBI Series by the author.

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.

Exciting, fast paced. The author sucks you in and hold you till the very end.

Not a knockout.....just passed out from boredom.

Of all the books Catherine Coulter has written, this might be the worst. I can handle the dorky FBI agents, and the "guest" hero falling in love with the poor helpless victim, but the hokus pokus mind reading crap is just too much.

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.

This book was excellent but could have been shorter. Sherlock and Savitch are two of my characters.

Savich and Sherlock are tracking down a family with special mind-controlling gifts who are trying to kidnap their dead brother's child in order to continue their cult. Savich also has 2 bank robbers trying to kill him because he shot the mother of one of the robbers in a bank. I think I have a couple more to read before I have to wait for the next book in this series to come out.

A fast and entertaining read with two main stories converging. For fans of Coulter, familiar characters Savich and Sherlock continue to fight evil with spunk. A touch of super powers mixed in to spice it up. A second set of protagonists and antagonists makes it seem like two stories in one! I've always felt dialogue is as fast and clever (no one is that witty in conversation all the time!) as the action but at least it doesn't slow up the pace of the story. Bad guys are super evil and crazy to boot. Coulter still knows how to spin a good yarn.

Yes indeedy, I do like Catherine Coulter's 'FBI' series starring agents with grit, smarts, a kicka$$ computer, humor, and the occasional 'gifts'. "Knock Out" is her latest novel set in the world of Savich and Sherlock and it is...a knock out.This time Savich and Sherlock are working two cases at the same time. The first involves a gang of vicious bank robbers who kill security guards for no reason other than 'fun'. The second involves a special girl named Autumn, who first speaks to Savich in his sleep. Autumn is being hunted for her 'talents' by a paranormal cult group who have named themselves after a devil-worshiping 1500s cult. So which case will be important? When it comes down to it, do you rescue one small girl on the run or hunt down two indiscrimite killers? I'm not sure which group of 'bad guys' were creepier. Both could be classified as 'nutjobs' (that's the clinical term doncha you know), but both treated the lives of others as 'cheap change'. I'm wondering if we'll see more of Autumn in a later novel (which I would LOVE to read); or quite possibly one of the characters from the cult who may have gotten away."Knock Out" grabbed me from page one and the action never slowed. There's no real romance or sex in Coulter's recent FBI novels, but that doesn't affect my enjoyment one bit. She almost always manages to throw me a few curveballs that I never saw coming and yet when I'm finished, I can only wonder how I didn't catch on before! Her characters are real to me and their dilemmas and reactions make me think. Smart, sexy, action mysteries. Is that a genre? If it's not, it should be and Catherine Coulter is an author that needs to be at the top of the author list for it. If you enjoy hold-your-breath action, well-plotted mystery, and a little 'woo woo'; and you have a few hours to read...grab "Knock Out" and tune out the world.

For experienced FBI Special Agent Dillon Savich to find himself on the floor of a bank during a bank robbery was a bit of luck, good and bad. He was able to alert his partner and wife Special Agent Lacey Sherlock of the robbery in progress as well as be there to help take down the bad guys and girls. While the sole survivor of the gang was in the hospital, she was able to escape with the help of the get-a-way driver. While trying to figure out their next move, Dillon received a message from a seven year old girl named Autumn. This little girl seemed to be in his head, able to talk to him from far away. The whole town of Titusville, Virginia was out looking for the missing girl all day, when Sherriff Ethan Merriweather came home and found she had been playing with his animals, he had no idea the trouble that would follow. Running away from her relatives who knew she had the special gift of telepathy, the whole family seemed to be able to do extraordinary thing like control other with one look, her and her mother (Joanna Backman) just wanted to find help from someone they could trust. With information coming from Savich and Sherlock, Ethan and Joanna were able to figure out a way to avoid her husbands family, for a while.Book 13.¿. Another adventure of Savich and Sherlock, this one had so much action in it, it was non stop from the first words, taking on two ¿situations¿ at one time. There was very, very little romance in this one at all, it was all adventure and suspense (that is good sometimes). I really enjoyed it. I would have liked a little more of Autumn, Joanna and Ethan, so much togetherness in a short amount of time causes for an interesting set of conditions for getting to know each other. This book is part of the series, as usual with Catherine Coulter¿s FBI Thrillers, the character creation and the continuing story of previously met characters are great. There is a mention of another `psychic¿ event from Dillon¿s past, while this type of thing has happened a couple of times before, it was fun to see it again. I would say that if you don¿t mind the references to other stories, this could be read as a stand alone, but to really get the whole feel of who Savich and Sherlock are, I find reading a series in order is the best, this one included - even though it is 13 books now.

13th book in the FBI series that is more suspense than romance.Savich gets a telepathic message from a 7 year-old girl just as he¿s falling asleep. She¿d seen him on TV and knows he¿s a hero and she needs help, so tried to reach him. Her father¿s relatives have just recently learned of her existence and all are gifted with various powers to mess with someone else¿s mind. And they want her in their fold and will stop at nothing to grab her, even though she¿s surrounded by deputies and the sheriff.As with most of the books, there is a 2nd issue taking place. Savich was a customer in a bank that was getting robbed and stops the robbery. One of the robbers is a 16 year-old girl who wants to kill Savich and the bank¿s security guard because her mother, another of the bank robbers, was killed in a shootout before they could escape with the loot. With her cousin¿s help, she¿s able to escape from a hospital and the hunt is on.The romance? Between 7 year-old Autumn¿s mother and Sheriff Ethan Merriweather who come together to keep Autumn safe from her very scary uncle.The book takes place a couple of months after Tailspin, so the homelife of Sherlock and Savich goes forward with Sherlock recovering from losing her spleen in the last book. The characters are interesting, the story moves fast, the suspense is good, and as always, the book contains a lot of humor.

my biggest problem is getting to the ebook a second or more times. To reread the series as more new books come out. Problem is that I have traded up on the ereaders over the years and while I agree with your info, I have already purchased an ebook. My problem is that I cannot find that ebook in my history on any ebook reader still in working condition. So I am willing to repurchase these ebooks but your computer system says no. So now what do I do???
