Special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine take on a criminal mastermind in the next captivating thriller in the New York Times bestselling A Brit in the FBI series. “Coulter and Ellison smoothly mix contemporary political issues with eerie historical legend in this fast-paced” (Publishers Weekly) thriller.
The mystery: shocking.
When several major political figures die mysteriously, officials blame their deaths on natural causes. However, when a small drone is spotted at the scene of the most recent death, it quickly becomes clear to FBI agents Nicholas and Michaela that there’s more to this mystery than meets the eye.
The key: indecipherable.
Dr. Isabella Marin is a language expert, and she’s dedicated her entire life to researching an ancient text that has long been considered indecipherable…that is, until now. When it becomes clear that there’s an alarming pattern between the text and the recent deaths, she teams up with the FBI to find the link. It’s clear that the manuscript is the key to catching the killer. But how?
The case: nearly impossible.
When Nicholas and Michaela uncover plans for a devastating attack on London, they must race against the clock to stop the killer before it’s too late. Not only are they in danger of losing the manuscript—an object of extreme value—but they’re also at risk of losing more innocent lives: including their own.
With their signature heart-pounding tension and suspense, Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison's The Sixth Day is “another amazing entry in this ongoing series” (Associated Press).
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The fifth entry in Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison’s A Brit in the FBI series rockets along. Hacker extraordinaire Nicholas Drummond and his partner Michaela Caine just can't get a moment's peace; their relaxing English holiday gets cut short by the suspicious deaths of several political bigwigs. As the roller-coaster plot of this high-tech romp unfolds, it gets an unexpected dash of gothic mystery courtesy of a bad guy who considers himself a modern-day Dracula. And honestly, The Sixth Day is so much fun that we just went with it.
Near the start of bestseller Coulter and Ellison's exciting fifth Brit in the FBI thriller (after 2017's The Devil's Triangle), Germany's vice chancellor, Heinrich Hemmler, collapses and dies as he enters 10 Downing St. to confer with the British prime minister about letting more refugees into the U.K. The day before, Chapman Donovan, a wealthy Irish land owner with whom Hemmler had some business, dropped dead of a heart attack outside his home, according to news reports. When it becomes clear that both men were murdered by drones, FBI agents Michaela "Mike" Caine and Nicholas Drummond investigate, aided by their Covert Eyes team. The drone attacks coincide with a major computer security breach tied to a cybersecurity program designed by evil genius Roman Ardelean, who the reader soon learns is behind the attacks. Meanwhile, Ardelean, a descendant of 15th-century Romanian tyrant Vlad the Impaler, is seeking some newly discovered missing pages from the cryptic Voynich Manuscript that contain information regarding a blood disease cure. Coulter and Ellison smoothly mix contemporary political issues with eerie historical legend in this fast-paced outing sure to appeal to fans and newcomers alike.

This is my first reading by this author and was pleasantly surprised. I loved the characters, plot and going back in history. I especially loved the chapter on Bram Stoker, I would love to see a stand alone book on that subject. I will now read all of her books in this series.
The Sixth Day
This is a book that is hard to put down. Really liked the characters and plot. Hope to see another one soon featuring them
The Sixth Day
Oh my goodness Catherine Coulter
needs to stop co-writing with JT Ellison
I’m all for the Brit series, however, it’s so redundant and mindlessly detailed especially with the computer language the story could have been written in 300 pages in lieu of the 500+ pages of senseless details
Sorry but I give it only a one star
