Some spies prefer to never come out of the cold, but thinking about secret agents would never enter the mind of speechwriter Rebecca Matlock. Espionage belongs in movies and books to her. That changes when her father, who she thought died when she was a child, surfaces with a deadly enemy after him and now her. Working for the Governor of New York, Rebecca begins to receive threatening calls from a person demanding she end her affair with her boss. Not having an affair and a bit frightened, Rebecca turns to the Albany police, who discount her story.

She leaves the state capital to stay with her dying mother in the Big Apple where she receives another call. Not long after, someone is killed outside her window. The police treat Rebecca as the suspect.

After her mother passes away, Rebecca goes into hiding using a new identity and changing her looks. She resides in RIPTIDE, Maine, but her stalker follows. So does Adam Carruthers, a security expert who is close to Rebecca¿s father. Her foe kills a woman in RIPTIDE and abducts Rebecca. Everyone involved knows that they must work quickly to stop a rogue deep cover agent from assassinating the Matlocks.

Catherine Coulter¿s suspense thrillers seem to get better and better with each new release. Her latest tale, RIPTIDE, is filled with complex charcaters, who have appeared in previous novels and provide continuity. The heroine is a strong person who is just an everyday individual thrust into extraordinary circumstance outside her normal existence. Her heroic efforts insure Ms. Coulter¿s novel will appeal to fans of suspense, thriller, police procedural, and romance.

Everyone has their own opinion. I personally thought 'Riptide' was pretty good. It was the first Catherine Coulter book I have read. I am planning on reading 'The Cove' next!

The people who actually liked this book should read her 'GOOD' novels. This book seemed to be written out of necessity to fill in before she was ready to submit a real novel. Her characters were not well formed or in-depth. There wasn't much to them to want to know it seemed. Her plot was very amateur/lame that it didn't help to develop the story line. I kept reading hoping she would quit 'fooling around with us' and start to write like herself but it never happened. If was probably an okay read if you have never read one of her real 'novels' like: Target, The Cove, Edge, The Maze, Blind Side, Impulse, Eleventh Hour. Now that is GREAT entertainment and REAL talent. This book unfortunately is not; it's basically amateur writing at best; a real disappointment to her fans: Just like her book Hemlock Bay - DON'T purchase that one either. Everyone has hard times, and those two books were hers, so her stead fast fans will stick it out over her hard times.

Catherine Coulter delivers a riveting, action packed, suspenseful tale with many a twist and turn that keeps the reader guessing. The heroine is being stalked, but is getting very little help from law enforcement; as a matter of fact local police as well as federal agents are beginning to think she is delusional and in need of pyschiatric treatment. Her tension and frustration is almost palpable from the first page and throughout the book until the surprising confrontation at the end. There are several surprises in store for the reader that will serve to keep you glued to the pages of this novel and on edge during most of the story. Sit down, strap in, and enjoy the ride!
