Overview

When FBI agent Dane Carver's twin brother, Father Michael Joseph, is brutally murdered in his San Francisco church, husband-and-wife agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich take a personal interest in the investigation. Then Nicola "Nick" Jones, a homeless woman and the only witness to the shooting, is scared out of her mind because she is trying to hide from her own monsters - who are drawing closer and closer.

The chase goes from San Francisco to the Premiere Studios in Los Angeles and its new television hit, a show all about murder.

Wonderful book! It kept you in suspense but gave enough to let you guess what might happen. Love the FBI team in this book! I recommend!

  • Book Rating: 1/5

The book starts out well enough,but the last third is extremely week. Dialogue is very poor and sometimes inconsistent with the character. Often the storyline wanders off into irrelevant detail; it almost seemed like padding. I was close to not finishing the book as the vapid dialogue increased and the story devolved into drivel. I am somewhat surprised the book was ever published.

Coulter, Catherine

Coulter grew up on a horse ranch in the state of Texas.[2] She comes from a family of creative people. Her grandmother, who died at the young age of 37, was also a writer. Coulter's father is a painter and singer, and her mother is a retired concert pianist.[3]

Coulter wrote her first two novels, fifteen pages each, when she was fourteen.[3] While a freshman at University of Texas, Coulter wrote poetry.[3] After earning her undergraduate degree from the University of Texas, Coulter attended Boston College and earned a Master's degree in early 19th century European history.[2]

Coulter took a job as a speech writer for a Wall Street company president. Because her husband was a medical student, she spent many of her evenings alone, reading romance novels. One night when they were home together, Coulter found herself in the middle of a particularly bad book and threw it across room, asserting that even she could do better. Her husband challenged her to prove herself, and the two spent the weekend plotting out a storyline for a gothic romance. Coulter wrote the novel in the evenings.[3]

When Coulter finished writing her novel she sent it to an editor at Signet, the premiere Regency romance publisher. Three days later Signet offered her a three-book contract.[3] That first novel, The Autumn Countess, was published by Penguin Books in 1978. By 1982, she was earning enough to quit her job and become a full-time writer.[4]

Since then she has written over fifty books and has had forty-two consecutive New York Times Bestsellers since 1988.[2] Her thriller The Maze was her first book to place on the New York Times Hardcover Bestseller list, while The Cove spent nine weeks on the New York Times Paperback Bestseller list and sold over one million copies.[2] Coulter generally publishes one historical romance and one suspense novel each year, and has been busily rewriting many of her earlier Regency romances to turn them into longer historical romances.[5]

Coulter sits down to her computer every morning at 6:30 a.m. to review her email before beginning writing at 7:30 a.m. She normally finishes writing by 11 a.m.[3]

Coulter lives in Marin County, California with her husband, Anton Pogany, who is a physician. They travel often, and Coulter loves to ski.[2]
