“Fans of Lee Child and Patrick Lee won’t be disappointed”* in this high-octane FBI Thriller featuring Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock from the #1 New York Times bestselling author.
In New York, Special Agent Lacey Sherlock foils a terrorist attack at JFK airport, but stopping the grenade-carrying crazy was only the beginning. Another plot unfolds nearly simultaneously with a bomb at St. Patrick’s Cathedral...
Meanwhile, Savich—with the help of Agent Griffin Hammersmith—has his hands full trying to track an elusive murderer who is able to control those under his thrall. When an attempt on Savich’s life collides with Sherlock’s terrorist case, they must race against the clock, as more lives are in danger with every passing minute.
Bestseller Coulter's 19th FBI thriller (after 2014's Power Play) immediately immerses the reader in heart-stopping suspense. At New York City's J.F.K. Airport, a man waiting in the security line suddenly grabs a woman and brandishes a grenade. Fortunately, FBI agent Lacey Sherlock, who's nearby, manages to disarm him. No one is harmed. Less than an hour later, during a funeral service for a U.S. senator at Manhattan's St. Patrick's Cathedral, a quick-thinking priest seizes a backpack containing a time bomb, runs out the Fifth Avenue entrance, and tosses the bomb into the air just before it explodes. Miraculously, no one is seriously injured. Sherlock, declared a hero for her actions, spends much of the book trying to avoid the media, but others, including her FBI agent husband, Dillon Savich, focus on unmasking the fiend behind these two attacks and others in which each of the perpetrators appears to have been hypnotized or terrorized into acting. A supernatural element may not be to every taste.
Great read as usual. Looking forward to the next book.
