Another interesting, complicated book in the FBI Thriller series. One of the great things about this series is that there are two story lines going on that usually intertwine in some way. This story begins with someone trying to kill and/or kidnap Sean, Sherlock's and Savich's five year old son. As they figure out who it is from a previous case they were involved in, they become embroiled in the chase for this mentally ill suspect. The second story involves FBI agent Sala Porto, who is missing. ...more

My main complaint, one of the law enforcement agents gave up his gun. No, and No and No. Under no circumstances do you ever give up your weapon. Yeah knives are very bad, but a bullet is still faster and more lethal. But in this book it was okay that the guy gave up his gun. In real life the reaction would have been way different.
Two young women have their lives radically changed. One was a sweet, heartwarming story.
The other was laugh out loud funny.
Coulter's usual well written effort. There wo ...more
This book touched on the paranormal, which is something new for this author in this series.

Both Sherlock and Dillon, awakened when their house alarm turned off, rushed to prevent the kidnapping from happening. However, the would-be kidnapper escaped. Meanwhile, at a secluded lake in Maryland, Chief Ty Christie of Willicott, Maryland, witnessed a would-be murder from her cottage deck ...more
Many thanks to Gallery Books for providing my free copy of PARADOX by Catherine Coulter - all opinions are my own.
This book is the 22nd installment of the Savich and Sherlock FBI thriller series, but luckily, it read really well as a standalone. Set in Maryland, Savich and Sherlock are an FBI husband and wife team and the story starts off with a bang! From the very first page of the prologue I was reading frantically until the end. An escaped mental patient tries to break into their home and kid ...more
This was my first book by Catherine Coulter, and I doubt that I will try another. The dialogue was too contrived and syrupy, with seasoned police officers repeatedly making comments that sound more in keeping with those of a rookie officer, than someone who after years of seeing crime scenes has learned to maintain a certain level of distance for the sake of their sanity. Moreover, the likelihood that the FBI would allow a husband and wife to work cases together is farfetched to say the least -- ...more
