Book Description

June 5 2012 FBI Thriller (Book 14)
Yale professor Dr. Edward Kender’s father is undergoing chemotherapy when the supply of a critical accompanying drug, Culovort, suddenly runs out. Unwilling to accept the drug manufacturer’s disingenuous excuse of production line problems, Dr. Kender hires private investigator Erin Pulaski to prove that something more sinister is going on at Schiffer Hartwin. Meanwhile, in Maryland, married FBI agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich are investigating a rather unusual case: Senator David Hoffman is experiencing a ghostly apparition with possible malicious intent. The case is baffling, and Sherlock and Savich are not sure what to believe, even after witnessing the disturbing specter for themselves. They’re no closer to cracking the case when a call comes in from Connecticut: A top foreign Schiffer Hartwin employee has been found murdered behind the drug company’s U.S. headquarters. Unbeknownst to the FBI, Erin Pulaski had uncovered a bombshell in her investigation: The Culovort shortage is set to bring in a windfall profit in excess of two billion dollars. Upon learning of the murder, Erin is certain it has something to do with her findings, but she risks exposing herself by coming forward. As the feds move in, the case becomes even more complicated for Erin, since the murder of a foreign national on federal land can mean only that the pharmaceutical house has a secret of epic proportions — one it would do anything to keep hidden.

I enjoy reading about the same characters and the introduction of new characters as well as a return of some of the others that I have read about in the past. Very enjoyable reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Read June 21 2010
This is probably the worst Catherine Coulter book I have ever read - two completely separate stories that didn't really "meet" each other. I was very disappointed in this book. Couldn't wait to finish it. And it never got any better sadly.

By Annie 3

have read all of the FBI series and enjoyed every one, can't wait for the next one to be available in paperback or for my Kindle. She is in my books one of the best mystery writers of her time. Keep on writing and I will keep on reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timely topic with fascinating characters and plenty of thrills and chills! June 18 2010
By Valerie Matteson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
In the beginning of this story, private investigator and part-time ballet instructor Erin Pulaski is breaking into the Schiffer Hartwin Parmaceutical company's CEO's office. All is going well so far. Her client who is a professor at Yale has a father with colon cancer and there's been a sudden shortage of an important chemotherapy accompanying drug, Culovort. The suddenness of this has Erin suspicious and since other avenues of trying to talk with the CEO have failed, she is risking her life and reputation. She is able to access his office and his computer and finds files on the Culovort shortage plan which she prints out. As they are printing, Erin hears two voices coming down the hall: a man and a woman and it sounds like the CEO Caskie Royal and he is with a co-worker. They sound a bit drunk and definitely disorderly. Luckily Erin has time to grab her print job, tuck it into her jacket and get into the executive bathroom where there is a window just large enough for her to get out. She is heard as she gets out but runs fast and is not seen by the CEO.
In a second story, Sherlock and Savich are hidden outside of US Senator Hoffman's home keeping an eye on his bedroom window where he told them he has seen the spector of his deceased wife Nikki the last several nights. He believes she is trying to tell him something but he doesn't know what. Hoffman is a friend of Sherlock and Savich's boss, FBI section chief, Jimmy Maitland. Mr. Maitland is concerned some one might be playing a prank or something more sinister on the senator. Savich and Sherlock do see the ghost but she doesn't say anything at that point. Later Savich is visited by her and she warns him that David, Sen. Hoffman, is endanger and doesn't realize what is happening. Extra security is set up for the Senator and Savich also lets him know what he believes Nikki wants to warn him about.
The author throws into the mix FBI Agent Bowie Richards whose seven-year-old daughter Georgie takes ballet lessons from Erin and his desire to have Erin help him out by babysitting Georgie a few days as his usual nanny is out sick. Agent Richards is involved in the break-in at Schiffer Hartwin and also that night a body is found in the park behind the pharmaceutical company and the corpse is quickly identified as an employee of the German main headquarters of Schiffer Hartwin.
This is giving Erin fits as she knows she should confess to doing the break-in and what she found out. On top of that, Sherlock and Savich arrive to help out Bowie so even more FBI agent for Erin to worry about.
Great excitement as the plot lines evolve and are resolved. Romance kept to a minimum - maybe a bit too much but still a great read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Forgettable... July 17 2010
By Jen the Librarian - Published on Amazon.com
Catherine Coulter is always at the top of my list of reads, but her books are not what they used to be. Catherine Coulter is synonymous with romance as well as suspense, but maybe in a bid to break ties with her roots the romance is seriously lacking in this book. Sherlock and Savich were great as always, but there was no romance between the main characters. The paranormal aspect was somewhat disappointing, and I don't think I will remember anything about this book in the next couple of weeks. I hope next summer's book is better.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lazy writing Nov. 3 2010
By C - Published on Amazon.com
Catherine Coulter's books used to be "must reads" for me, as soon as I could get my hands on them. But it seems to me that her writing is getting lazier and lazier. I liked the plot of this book, but she made no effort to develop the new characters she introduced.

At a minimum, a reader should be able to read a line of dialogue and give a fairly accurate guess as to who said it. But lately, all of Coulter's characters sound the same. In this book, people are always feeling things "to their toes" or "to their bones." Or Coulter says "(Erin) realized that Bowie was jollying Chief Amos...," or (Bowie to Erin) "Don't you try to jolly me out of being mad," or (Sherlock to Savich) "You can't jolly me out of it....." None of these expressions are so common that they should be attributed to every main character. And yet Coulter does that. It seems as if she doesn't care any more about making characters, and their dialogue, interesting and refreshing.

It's time for me to move on to an author who DOES care about those things.

5.0 out of 5 stars great timely entry June 15 2010
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Yale Professor Edward Kender has colon cancer in which the drug Culovort he receives as part of his treatment seems to be working when he is informed production by German firm Schiffer Hartwin is nonexistent. Stunned he assumes the pharmaceutical industry is playing death squad to drum up profits. He hires private investigator Erin Pulaski to make an inquiry into the firm. She breaks in and enters the head office of the American subsidiary in Stone Bridge, Connecticut in order to hack into the files of the local CEO Caskie Royal. She finds info on plans to stop the Cartwright Labs in Bartonville, Missouri from manufacturing the drug; as well as stopping it in Spain in favor of a French firm Labortoires Anconder's drug Eloxium. However, Royal and production manager Carla Alvarez arrive and discuss what they are doing with the firm and then have sex..

The next day she learns that the firm's troubleshooter was murdered near where she downloaded computer data that made no sense to her. Meanwhile, the FBI sends married couple Agents Sherlock and Savich to Stone Bridge to assist FBI agent Bowie Richards with the homicide. They begin to find troubles with the pharmaceutical company while Pulaski wonders what to do with her illegal download; Pulaski becomes their prime suspect. Savich also investigates the poisoning of a lobbyist whose real target may have been aimed at a US Senator.

This is a great timely entry in the long running S&S FBI police procedural series due to the pharmaceutical connection as much as the freshness brought forth by Richards and more so by Erin who knows her B&E was stupid but felt strongly that they needed to expose true death squad bottom lines. Fast-paced from the onset, the second case takes somewhat of a back seat though it is well written and quite exciting too. Fans of the series will relish this strong entry while newcomers will find Whiplash a winner too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Savich and Sherlock.... July 3 2010
By Jen B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is another solid story in the Savich and Sherlock series. Sure, it's silly at times. And yes, there is a little romance between two of the other characters but...It's fun, fast paced, a little over the top and I really enjoyed it. Is it the best in the series? No. Is it the worst? Not by a long shot! Even if you have never read any of the other books in the series, this book would still be a good, quick read.
