Book Description

June 24 2008 FBI Thriller (Book 12)
FBI Special Agent Jackson Crowne is flying renowned psychiatrist Dr. Timothy MacLean back to Washington, D.C., to protect him and discover who’s trying to kill him. But they don’t make it. That same morning, agents Savich and Sherlock are told about Agent Crowne’s Mayday sent from deep in the Appalachian mountains near Parlow, Kentucky. Within thirty minutes, Savich and Sherlock are aboard an FBI helicopter, headed for Parlow. Agent Crowne barely manages to bring his Cessna down in the narrow Cudlow Valley and haul the unconscious Dr. MacLean from the burning wreckage before it explodes. Their crash is witnessed by Rachael Abbott, a young woman who has just narrowly escaped drowning by assailants who drugged her, tied her to a cement block, and threw her into Black Rock Lake. When Savich and Sherlock arrive in Parlow, they discover Jack is down but not out, that Rachael saved his and Dr. MacLean’s lives, and that she’s hiding something big. To add to the complexity of the situation, Dr. MacLean has been diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia, a pernicious disease that makes the victim say whatever comes to mind with no regard to consequences. With a patient list of Washington’s elite movers and shakers, MacLean has almost certainly compromised doctor-patient confidentiality, and one of his patients, they presume, is out to shut him up. But which one, and why?

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Dark secrets that can destroy lives propel bestseller Coulter's solid 12th FBI thriller (after Double Take). When a small plane carrying FBI Special Agent Jackson Jack Crowne makes a crash landing in mountainous Parlow, Ky., his friends FBI Special Agents Dillon Savitch and Lacey Sherlock fly by helicopter from Washington, D.C., to the scene. Jack survives the crash, aided by Rachael Abbott, a young woman who's returning to Parlow, her childhood home, after escaping an attempt to drown her in a Maryland lake. After Rachael reveals that she's the illegitimate daughter of the late Maryland senator John James Abbott, whose siblings she suspects are trying to kill her, the FBI agents agree to help. As further attempts on Rachael's life occur, the attraction grows between her and Jack. Despite a somewhat predictable plot, master of romantic suspense Coulter exposes the cost of obsessive regard for family honor and family shame with her usual flair. (June)

3.0 out of 5 stars FBI Thriller, NO 12 July 21 2008
By A. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have read the entire FBI series and eagerly awaited Tailspin. As usual Savitch and Sherlock were superb and the storyline was good. However, I thought the story drug in places and for some reason I couldn't get into Rachael's character. There were no surprises to me. I early on figured on who was after Rachael and I also guessed early on what some indicate as a surprise at the end. I liked Jackson's character but Rachael at times seemed sort of smart mouth and you had the idea she didn't need the FBI; like she was going to take on any of the bad guys. At one point Jackson is concerned about her carrying a gun and she tells him to shut up-she can probably shoot better than him. Well he was in some special forces and then FBI and that was unlikely as was her getting out of the water after she had been tied up and a cement block tied to her. Okay it's fiction and though I rolled my eyes, I'll buy that for the sake of the story. She bothered me more when she was so sarcastic.

I got a little bored with all the conversations over the same thing. There is one whole chapter with Rachael walking around Jackson's apartment describing the walls, the floors, the decor and going through everything again. I found myself skimming some of the book and in fact put it down several times which I seldom do with one of the FBI series. IT seemed like it would flow along and then drag for awhile. It's not bad and there have been others in the series I have liked better than others. IF there is a 13th book in the series I would no doubt read it. I like Savitch and Sherlock enough to keep reading.

I appreciate the fact that CC doesn't have a lot of profanity in her books and explicit sexual situations. This series is not really romance but more thrillers. The only really sexual scene was between Savich and Sherlock which was kind of cute actually.

Though this wasn't my favorite of the series, it still had its moments and if you've read the rest of the series you will want to read this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Plot and Character Development June 26 2008
By Valerie Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Dr. Timothy MacLean is a psychologist to all the movers and shakers in Washington, but when he is diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia and starts leaking confidential information about his patients someone tries to run him and keep him quiet permanently. After the second attempt on his life, FBI Special Agent Jack Crowne steps in and attempts to fly Dr. MacLean to safety. During the flight, a bomb goes off and sends Agent Crowne and Dr. MacLean to a fiery crash in Parlow, Kentucky. Luckily for both men, Rachael Abbott is there to witness the crash and assist both men in the rescue. Rachael has just discovered that she is the illegitimate daughter of a Senator, who she believes was murdered. Agent Crowe soon learns that Rachael is running away from people who are attempting to murder her as well. With Dr. McLean in a coma from the crash and Agent Crowe determined to protect Rachael from ferocious murderers he enlists the help of Agents Savich and Sherlock. With conspiracy theories, political secrets, dysfunctional families and assassins on the lose Catherine Coulter provides an excellent plot weaved with suspense, mystery and romance. Tailspin is a great addition to Coulter's FBI series. Written with superb attention to detail and excellent character dialogue Coulter returns after a long absence at the top of her game. The return of our favorite Agents Savich and Sherlock coupled with new highly likeable characters and villains, readers with definitely get their monies worth. High praises for Tailspin.

1.0 out of 5 stars So bad... Sept. 16 2008
By Tina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book was so bad that I had to get out of bed after I finished reading it to write this review.

The first two-thirds of the book was so slow and boring I almost put it down. Wish I had.

Then, for a moment of time, it was okay. I almost cared about the characters and the outcome.

Shortly thereafter, I wanted to ask the author if she considered working at Burger King because being an author certainly does not seem to be her area of expertise.

The plot went from dull to outlandish. The facts were distorted. (A Cessna, with a bomb on board would not simply crash land. It would be blown to smithereens and would not be survivable.)

To be honest and fair, this is the first book I've read by this author. And the last.

I purchased the book because I am a pilot, and the name/photo caught my attention. (So much for great marketing!) The write-up was intriguing. The fact that it was a best-seller, sold me.

But I've learned my lesson, for sure. Sometimes best-sellers are simply very well marketed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just like every other Coulter FBI Thriller Aug. 20 2008
By J. Schneider - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I enjoyed this book. However, by the 12th book FBI book, they all start to merge together in my brain. Something bad happens to a 28 year old woman. She needs or finds a 34 year old male FBI agent to babysit and protect her. Said FBI agent calls in Savich and Sherlock (who have become stale characters, by now). Damsel in distress and FBI agent go through a great traumatic experience together and then get married. There you go, that sums up all the Catherine Coulter FBI thriller novels.

Plus, Catherine Coulter needs a new editor. Her books lack a great deal of continuity and the editing is terrible. Sherlock's real name is spelled differently in about every other book. At one time, Sherlock was a tall woman. Now, she's very petite. I guess CC never expected the first books to lead anywhere, so why bother continuing with what she had written in the first place.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Aug. 5 2008
By Pat K - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I started this book with high hopes, which were quickly dashed. This book is formulaic with few, if any surprises. The characters were undeveloped. I'm glad I took the book out of the library and didn't spend on it.
