Labyrinth
July 31st, 2019 by diane92345

Two seemingly unrelated cases enliven Labyrinth, the 23rd entry in the FBI Thriller series.

Agent Sherlock hits a running man with her car while caroming around after being struck herself by an SUV running a red light. Waking up in the hospital, she can’t remember her name or recognize her family. Blood found on her car is linked to a missing CIA Analyst. Where did the obviously hurt man go after the accident? More importantly, who or what was he running from?

In rural Gaffer’s Ridge, FBI Agent Griffin Hammersmith is taking a vacation trying to forget his recent break-up with his fiancée Anna and a particularly bizarre recent case with Agent Savich. He hears someone’s thoughts, who is in danger. Carson DeSilva is trapped with a man who, she psychically believes, has already brutally killed three missing teenagers. Once free with the killer Rafer Bodine trapped, Griffin calls the police. But will he and Carson get justice when the Sheriff poo-poos their claim and states his nephew, Rafer, is an upstanding citizen—not a serial killer.

Agents Savich and Sherlock continue to bring original plots to their books. The amnesia throws a wrench into their relationship but you feel nothing could bring them down for long.

There is a lot going on here but the author does a good job keeping all the subplots boiling. Usually, one plot is the main one leaving the others as kind of a filler you have to rush through to get back to the interesting story. That didn’t happen in Labyrinth. All the plots were compelling. I read the book in one sitting. It is a great addition to the FBI Thriller series. 4 stars!

Thanks to Gallery Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.

Enigma
September 5th, 2017 by diane92345

Four seemingly unrelated cases baffle FBI agents Sherlock and Savich in the 21st entry in the series.

A woman is held hostage in her house by a dirty and confused man who says he only wants to protect her.  A killer is rescued from his initial prison transport and disappears. A newborn is kidnapped from a hospital. The son of a US Senator is suspected of murdering his girlfriend but he has no memory of the event.

There are many plot strands in Enigma that are woven together expertly. Ms. Coulter is obviously an experienced thriller writer. I particularly enjoyed the scientific aspects of the plot. There hasn’t been a good science thriller since Robin Cook and Michael Crichton died. Enigma eventually evolves into a fascinating exploration of anti-aging technology.

I would recommend Enigma to anyone who likes to read FBI procedurals or scientific thrillers. It is not necessary to read any previous entries in this series to enjoy this novel.

Thanks to the publisher, Gallery, and netgalley for the advanced review copy in exchange for my honest review. Enigma will be available September 12, 2017.
