Book Description

July 5 2011 An FBI Thriller
The number-one New York Times-bestselling author returns with another pulse-pounding thriller featuring FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock, and introducing Speical Agents Lucy Carlyle and Cooper McKnight.

A serial killer is on the loose, and it's up to FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock to bring him down. They soon discover that the killer has blood ties to an infamous and now long-dead monster. Savich and Sherlock are joined by agents Lucy Carlyle and Cooper McKnight, and the chase is on.

At the same time, Agent Carlyle learns from her dying father that her grandfather didn't simply walk away from his family twenty-two years ago: he was, in fact, murdered by his wife, Lucy's grandmother. Determined to find the truth, Lucy moves into her grandmother's Chevy Chase mansion. What she finds, however, is a nightmare. Not only does she discover the truth of what happened all those years ago, but she faces a new mystery, one that has been passed down from mother to daughter for generations.

As the hunt for the serial killer escalates, Savich realizes he's become the killer's focus, and perhaps the next victim. It's up to Lucy to stop this madness before it's too late.

5.0 out of 5 stars Split Second gives hours of reading enjoyment July 10 2011
Catherine Coulter's FBI thriller series has long been a favourite of mine. In this book, FBI agents and married couple, Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock are once again on the hunt for a killer. This time it's a serial killer with ties to another famous serial killer, long dead. There are two new agents who have been added to the story, Lucy and Cooper. Along with the story line of the killer is another story that involves Lucy and her family and a ring that Lucy has fallen heir to.

This is a great story with lots of action scenes. There is also a lot of dialogue and often a narrative assist in knowing what the killer is thinking at certain times which means that you get to hear the story from all angles.

I basically read this story straight through to the neglect of many other things this weekend. If you're going on vacation and need a book to read I'd highly recommend this one.

Another writer who keeps the same characters in her books. I love Savich and Sherlock. There is humour and violence in the book, but the way it is presented it doesn't upset the reader. I recommend this book to all readers who enjoy mystery and suspense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catherine Coulter's SPLIT SECOND Shows How The LIfe We Know Can Change In An Instant July 19 2011
By Cyrus Webb - Published on Amazon.com
Whether you are someone who has been a fan of bestselling author Catherine Coulter's thrillers or even her romance novels, SPLIT SECOND will give you a little of both.

From the very beginning of the book Coulter shows you how quickly even a trip to the store can turn into a life or death situation, but with the return of characters like FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock you know that they are willing to risk their lives in order to do their job and do it well.

This becomes something that tests them both professionally and mentally when they are faced with what seems like a deranged serial killer who is intent on causing unspeakable pain and horror. As the story develops, though, there seems to be something more at play--and when the identity of the culprit is realized, there is a race against time in order to stop more senseless deaths.

Joining Savich and Sherlock on the case are two other dedicated agents,Cooper McKnight and Lucy Carlyle. As with Savich and Sherlock, however, this case brings out a more personal element that threatens to destroy everyone around it.

With SPLIT SECOND the action comes fast and furious as do the personal relationships that we see develop throughout the story. There is also another element that Coulter is known for that comes through as well: the human component. We get to know slivers of the characters---both the heroes and the bad guy(s)---that helps us in understanding the way they react to situations and even what drives them.

There's no other way to say it: SPLIT SECOND is a literary winner that reminds us how the life we know can change in an instant. Coulter has delivered another home run for readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Split Second by Catherine Coulter July 20 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished this new FBI book and it was great! I have all of her other books both in this series and her romance novels. If you have read any of her books especially the FBI Series you will love this one! It has all everything you expect from a Catherine Coulter novel and more! The characters are some of our old friends that we have come to love and respect mixed in with new friends that we will remember and see on down the road in future books as part of the ever growing FBI family! For those of you who have never read any of this series (if thats possible, Lol) you don't have to read any of the other books to enjoy this one. But you will definately want to!

3.0 out of 5 stars A little lame................ July 24 2011
By Janie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Love the characters in Coulter's FBI series. But a magical ring? Really? She had a good plot going. I don't feel she needed to throw in the magical nonsense. Hope she rethinks the next book and comes back strong.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why ruin a good book with the ring? Aug. 8 2011
By lpr200 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The FBI series is what I think of as good summer reading- entertaining with likable characters, if a little formulaic. But in this one, the ring subplot nearly derails the book. Took it from a good read to nearly ridiculous.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed Sept. 17 2011
By Kristen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read Savich & Sherlock from the beginning, with recent books dipping into the paranormal (not my cup of tea), but I will not bash the magic ring, the far fetched serial killer following in her daddy's footsteps, or the other plots. I will say I was disappointed in the writing. Cliches, overworded descriptions, stilted and ridiculous conversation, forced relationships...This felt like and read like, it was a rush to write and not well edited. I will not be spending further money or time on another Catherine Coulter book.
I am disappointed to add another author who used to be a sure thing, to my never again list. Welcome Ms. Coulter, you're in used to be good company with Patrica Cornwell and Lori Foster.
