Publisher Description

The New York Times bestselling Brit in the FBI series continues with this thrilling “popcorn movie in print form” (Associated Press) pitting special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine against a private French space agency that has the power to end the world as we know it.

Galactus, France’s answer to SpaceX, has just launched a communications satellite into orbit, but the payload actually harbors a frightening weapon: a nuclear bomb that can trigger a massive electromagnetic pulse (EMP).

When the satellite is in position, Galactus’s second-in-command, Dr. Nevaeh Patel, will have the power to lay waste to the world. A former astronaut, Patel believes she is following the directions of the Numen, aliens who saved her life when she space-walked outside the International Space Station. She is convinced that with the Holy Grail—just discovered by the owner of Galactus, eccentric treasure hunter Jean-Pierre Broussard—she can be reunited with the Numen, change the world’s destiny, and become immortal with them.

The countdown has begun when Special Agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine are thrown into the pending disaster. They must stop the EMP that would wreak havoc on communication and electronic systems on Earth, resulting in chaos and anarchy.

With their high-octane and suspenseful prose, “Coulter and Ellison are a thriller writer’s dream team, and The Last Second is some of their best work yet” (The Real Book Spy).

The Last Second

This is the F.B.I.? I am a big fan of the Catherine Coulter books featuring Savich and Sherlock, but the series of a Brit in the F.B.I. cannot compare. Why do popular authors take on co-authors? Are they tired of writing or have they lost their edge? Are they so hard up for money that they continue putting out mediocre books with co-authors who have no concept of the characters or series?

This book is an example of that and has nothing to do with the F.B.I. The characters and plot are too far-fetched to be believable. The book is so full of useless details in order to fill up the pages that it makes it a tedious and boring read. I didn’t realize that the F.B.I. dabbled in science fiction.

I have noticed the quality of writing with co-authors is well below the original authors’ usual standards, and I have been forced to drop some of my favorite best-selling authors because of this practice. Let the co-authors write books on their own so when they flop, they won’t take their original mentors with them.

The LastSecond

Shades of James Patterson. Two different books, hardly connected! Why not write less books without these attempts to have almost every other chapter be part of two stories. Terrible book.
