Starred Review. At the start of bestseller Coulter's gripping 11th FBI thriller (after Point Blank), Julia Ransom is enjoying a liberating stroll on San Francisco's Pier 39 after having been suspected of the brutal murder of her renowned psychic husband, Dr. August Ransom, six months earlier and hounded by the media. When an unknown assailant throws Julia off the pier, FBI Special Agent Cheney Stone rescues her. Stone later senses a link between the attack and the death of Julia's husband. Meanwhile in Virginia, Sheriff Dixon Noble is finally feeling his life is getting back to normal after his wife went missing three years earlier. When Noble comes to San Francisco to pursue a lead into his wife's disappearance, he gets involved in a harrowing investigation with Stone into both mysteries. As usual, the author conjures strong visual images, particularly a wild car chase through the streets of San Francisco. Credible characters and a fascinating look at the world of psychics and thieves help make this one of Coulter's best.

When Julia Ransom is attacked while taking a stroll on San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf, an FBI agent dining nearby saves her life and finds himself drawn into her complicated world. It turns out the young, beautiful Julia is a widow; her much older celebrity-psychic husband, August, was recently savagely murdered. Julia herself is considered a suspect in the case, but newly smitten FBI agent Cheney Stone refuses to believe it. At the same time, in the small town of Maestro, Virginia, Sheriff "Dix" Noble (a recurring character in Coulter's books) has just started resuming a normal life; his wife, Christie, has been missing for three years and is presumed dead. When Dix gets a tip that Christie has been spotted in San Francisco, he heads there to check it out and winds up crossing paths with Agent Stone. With the help of two other recurring characters, Agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock, the group is able to solve the mystery behind the missing Christie and the murder of August Ransom. Mystery-suspense fans will enjoy the colorful characters; twisting, turning plots; loads of potential suspects; and an ultimately satisfying conclusion. Kathleen Hughes
