Summary
"The next high-octane thriller in the FBI series featuring Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock from # 1 New York Times-bestselling author Catherine Coulter. When Special Agent Lacey Sherlock foils a terrorist attack at JFK airport, she thinks her job is done and turns the reins over to the New York FBI. But stopping the grenade-carrying crazy was only the beginning. Another plot unfolds nearly simultaneously with a bomb at St. Patrick's Cathedral. The terrorist at JFK refuses to speak to anyone but Sherlock. She heads back with counterterrorist Special Agent Cal McLain to try to get him to talk. Meanwhile, Savich--with the help of Agent Griffin Hammersmith--has his hands full trying to track an elusive murderer who looks like a Hollywood Dracula. When Dracula's attempts to kill Savich collide with Sherlock's terrorist case, very strange things happen. Who is really behind the bombing attack at St. Patrick's? How does Savich's mysterious killer fit into Sherlock's terrorism investigation? Savich and Sherlock race against the clock, as more lives are in danger with every passing minute"--

Review
  • By foiling the attack of a grenade-wielding man at JFK Airport, FBI Special Agent Lacey Sherlock becomes the nemesis of an international terrorist. The shadowy mastermind known as the Strategist is targeting cathedrals of the Western world, and the airport attack is intended to divert resources from the bomb planted at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, where the funeral of a U.S. senator attracts high-powered mourners, including the vice president. As Sherlock’s team tries to track down the Strategist, her husband (and boss) Dillon Savich is seeking Stefan Dalco, the powerful figure behind the murders of two residents of a small Virginia town, both killings committed by friends of the victims who claim no memories of the events. While Savich battles the supernatural, focusing on members of a Wiccan family as his dreams become potentially deadly, Sherlock faces the all-too-real bullets of a sniper intent on killing her. In her brisk, breezy style, Coulter works hints of romance between other agents into her nineteenth FBI thriller, another suspenseful and entertaining entry by a genre star. -- Leber, Michele (Reviewed 06-01-2015) (Booklist, vol 111, number 19, p56)
  • Bestseller Coulter’s 19th FBI thriller (after 2014’s Power Play ) immediately immerses the reader in heart-stopping suspense. At New York City’s J.F.K. Airport, a man waiting in the security line suddenly grabs a woman and brandishes a grenade. Fortunately, FBI agent Lacey Sherlock, who’s nearby, manages to disarm him. No one is harmed. Less than an hour later, during a funeral service for a U.S. senator at Manhattan’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral, a quick-thinking priest seizes a backpack containing a time bomb, runs out the Fifth Avenue entrance, and tosses the bomb into the air just before it explodes. Miraculously, no one is seriously injured. Sherlock, declared a hero for her actions, spends much of the book trying to avoid the media, but others, including her FBI agent husband, Dillon Savich, focus on unmasking the fiend behind these two attacks and others in which each of the perpetrators appears to have been hypnotized—or terrorized—into acting. A supernatural element may not be to every taste. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group. (July) --Staff (Reviewed June 1, 2015) (Publishers Weekly, vol 262, issue 22, p)
  • /* Starred Review */ Coulter's 18th FBI thriller (after Power Play ) once again demonstrates her talent for writing a riveting story. After FBI Special Agent Lacey Sherlock foils a terrorist attack at New York's JFK airport, the terrorists target St. Patrick's Cathedral. Meanwhile Sherlock's husband, Dillon Savich, investigates a series of mysterious murders in Virginia. Young men with no memory of the events have been charged with the killings. Who is forcing these suspects to commit crimes? Can Sherlock and Savich identify and take on the mastermind behind these disparate acts? VERDICT The edge-of-your-seat opening ratchets into an action-packed tale of suspense that leads to an astonishing conclusion. Fans of Lee Child and Patrick Lee won't be disappointed.[See Prepub Alert, 2/2/15.]— Susan Carr, Edwardsville P.L., IL --Susan Carr (Reviewed June 15, 2015) (Library Journal, vol 140, issue 11, p74)
