From “one of the bonafide rock stars of the thriller genre” (The Real Book Spy) comes another tour de force in the #1 New York Times bestselling FBI Thriller series following agents Savich and Sherlock as they stumble into a bizarre case that’s more complicated and twisted than any they’ve ever encountered.
On a Tuesday afternoon, Agent Sherlock is driving in downtown Washington when her Volvo is suddenly T-boned at an intersection. As her car spins out of control, a man’s body slams against her windshield and then—blackness. When she finally regains consciousness in the hospital, she’s told about the accident and the man she struck. No one knows yet who he is or where he is because he ran away. From DNA, they discover his name is Justice Cummings and he’s a CIA analyst at Langley…and he’s still missing.
Meanwhile, in the small town of Gaffer’s Ridge, Virginia, Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith rescues a kidnapped woman claiming her captor had probably murdered three missing teenage girls. However, the man she accuses is the local sheriff’s nephew and a member of a very powerful family, reputed to have psychic powers. When the sheriff arrests Griffin and the rescued woman, Carson DaSilva, he calls Savich for help. Together they have to weave their way through a labyrinth of lies to find the truth of a terrible secret.
“If there’s one thing that readers can count on in a Coulter novel it is that she always delivers amazingly eerie and complex thrillers” (RT Book Reviews), and Labyrinth is no different. With white-knuckled pacing and shocking twists and turns, this is another electrifying novel that will sink its teeth in you.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Catherine Coulter’s 23rd book in her FBI Thriller series kicks off with a bang—literally. A car accident leaves Agent Lacey Sherlock with short-term memory loss and a mystery: Who was that CIA analyst that collided with her windshield? And where did he go? Sherlock and her husband, Agent Dillon Savich, race to uncover the connection between the accident and a journalist who was abducted by a possible serial killer. And did we mention that the journalist seems to have a psychic connection to another bureau investigator? The paranormal turn is a bit of a surprise, but Coulter makes it work. Between its breathless action scenes, Labyrinth also allows for a few touching, vulnerable moments as the Quantico power couple learns to deal with Sherlock’s memory loss. As always, we rooted for them every step of the way.
Bestseller Coulter's high-speed 23rd FBI thriller (after 2018's Paradox) opens on a busy road in Washington, D.C., where an SUV rams into FBI agent Lacey Sherlock's car, causing her to spin out of control and hit a man, who subsequently disappears. Sherlock wakes up in the hospital with no memory of the accident, nor of her husband, fellow agent Dillon Savich. The FBI determines that the man she ran into was CIA analyst Justice Cummings. The search for Cummings uncovers chilling links to an international spy plot. Meanwhile, in tiny Gaffer's Ridge, Va., FBI agent Griffin Hammersmith rescues kidnapped journalist Carson Di Silva, who tells him that her abductor, Rafer Bodine, is also responsible for the disappearance of three teenagers, information she received through a psychic experience. The local sheriff, Rafer's uncle, declares him innocent and jails Hammersmith and Di Silva. In an attempt to help Sherlock regain her memory, Savich brings her to Gaffer's Ridge to investigate the abduction of the teens. Never mind the unlikely plot developments. Readers will cheer kick-butt Sherlock all the way to the action-packed finale.

Skipping to end does NOT count as finished....
Your review means NOTHING - u can’t call a book “finished” when u just skipped to the end.....so, thx but no thx for ur....so called Review :(
Great Book, likability is higher than current rating
Must read the whole novel before giving an opinion, though instantly engaging. Reading only 6 chapters, moving to the last chapter only, and marking “finished!”, is not a fair critique of any book. This takes away from the readers’ first impression, judging a book by it’s anonymous review, and causes financial harm with one button, “send”.
Really enjoyed the Labyrinth by Catherine Coulter.
