#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR
A heart-stopping new FBI thriller from New York Times bestseller Catherine Coulter.
After Special Agent Dillon Savich stops a crazy man from harming a pregnant woman, the man unexpectedly falls into a coma. Doctors discover a drug in his blood that they can’t classify. And his only identification is a yellow wristband marked E 2. Did this John Doe escape from a psychiatric hospital? And why was he at the pregnant woman’s house? When her newborn baby is kidnapped from the hospital, Savich realises there’s a connection between the kidnapping and the unconscious John Doe. DNA tests uncover a startling fact: his cells are unlike any other – he’s an enigma.
Agents Savich and Sherlock and an FBI team of experts must find the kidnapped baby, discover the link, and determine what bizarre drug was used on John Doe and, most importantly, why.
Meanwhile, Liam Hennessey, aka Manta Ray, a convicted bank robber, escapes from the federal marshals during his transport to a penitentiary. He and his ‘handlers’ are seen going into the Daniel Boone National Forest. Savich sends Agents Cam Wittier and Jack Cabot after them. Why break out this violent criminal? Or did the safe-deposit box he stole and hid before he was captured contain something critically dangerous? Wittier and Cabot are in hot pursuit.
What they discover turns the case sideways. Enigma will keep you guessing in this race against the clock until the shocking conclusions.
Bestseller Coulter is at the top of her game in her 21st FBI thriller featuring married agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock (after 2016's Insidious). The first of two major plots gets off to a fast start when an apparently crazed young man barges into the house of pregnant Kara Moody in Washington's upscale Georgetown neighborhood. Savich arrives in time to save Kara by shooting the home invader, who winds up in a coma; in the hospital, he's labeled a John Doe pending identification. Soon afterward, Kara gives birth to a son. When the baby is abducted from the same hospital, Sherlock and her fellow agents get on the case. In an equally pulse-pounding second story line, Savich sends FBI agents Cam Wittier and Jack Cabot in search of convicted bank robber Manta Ray, who has escaped custody while being transported to federal prison. Twists and turns galore in both investigations ensure there's never a dull moment. Newcomers will find this a good entry point, since it works just as well as a standalone as part of the series.
