Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter returns with another pulse-pounding thriller featuring FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock... 

A serial killer is on the loose, and it's up to FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock to bring him down. They soon discover that the killer has blood ties to an infamous and now long-dead monster. Savich and Sherlock are joined by agents Lucy Carlyle and Cooper McKnight, and the chase is on. 

At the same time, Agent Carlyle learns from her dying father that her grandfather didn't simply walk away from his family twenty-two years ago: he was, in fact, murdered by his wife, Lucy's grandmother. Determined to find the truth, Lucy moves into her grandmother's Chevy Chase mansion. What she finds, however, is a nightmare. Not only does she discover the truth of what happened all those years ago, but she faces a new mystery, one that has been passed down from mother to daughter for generations.

As the hunt for the serial killer escalates, Savich realizes he's become the killer's focus, and perhaps the next victim. It's up to Lucy to stop this madness before it's too late.

    I love all of Catherine's FBI thrillers with Savich and Sherlock!! I can get so engrossed in them that I can read cover to cover in a day! Excellent books if you love a good murder/thrill/mystery with a dash of romance. That's probably my favorite part. I've never enjoyed reading those sappy love novels but these have just enough romance to make them realistic and really help you "see" and "feel" the characters! Great author!

    This series is usually entertaining. The books are not very realistic, but who cares ...it's a good read. You'll find likable characters and an interesting storyline. If you are looking for reality, go buy a text book. If you are looking to be entertained and to escape reality for just a bit then I recommend all the books in this series. I would suggest starting with the first book in the series, The Cove.

  • Another Amazing Catherine Coulter Thrillride!

    I started reading the F.B.I. series when I was only 12. That was 8 years ago. Since then Ms. Coulter has produced hit after amazing hit. Though Riptide will always be my favorite book, Split Second is up there with it in the top 5. I love how she keeps the characters real and relatable. Though I know that Kristen isn't real, I can't help but wonder if there isn't really some girl out there killing people because she's the unknown child of a serial killer. The plot is very believable and the writing is spot on as always. The only thing I didn't like was not getting to see Lucy tell Coop about the ring. I would have loved to see his reaction. I hope in the next book Ms. Coulter brings back some of our favorite people from the past like Rebecca from Riptide and such. Have a killer who hates Savich and is going after everyone he's ever saved.

    This plot basis has been done over and over again. It's far from original now and is getting me bored. I felt as if this wasn't written by the same author throughout either. Probably had a lot of ghost writers on it too.
  • Split Second is right on target

    Split Second is right on target, it only took a second to be fully absorbed into this book. I love all of the FBI series & can not wait until the next.
