  • Rendezvous Review: If Ruth Warnecki's hunch was right, she had just found the lost gold treasure, but then everything goes black. When Sheriff Dixon finds the woman, he takes her to the hospital but she can't remember who she is. Dixon takes her to his home to recuperate and soon discovers someone is trying to kill her.Ruth keeps getting flashbacks but nothing concrete. Dix sends circulars out asking if anyone knows this woman. Imagine his surprise when two FBI agents show up at his door and Ruth remembers who she is and where she had been. Working together, Ruth and Dix backtrack Ruth's foot steps, and in the process discover two bodies. Their investigation kicks off, they start sifting through clues and begin to find secrets that are going too hit close to home. The suspense stays at high level until the very end. Combined with the romance, it's a dynamic story that draws you into the passions of its characters. If you are looking for a mystery/suspense that builds in tension, you'll love POINT BLANK. -- Wilhelmenia Kendall (Reviewed 09-01-2005) (Rendezvous, vol 22, number 4)
  • Coulter's new thriller romance (Blowout , etc.) opens with Ruth Warnecki lost in a cave in rural Virginia while fellow (married) FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock are hot on the tail of a psychotic dirty old man (Moses Grace) and his flirtatious teenage partner (Claudia), who've kidnapped a smalltime comedian. Coulter fans know if they suspend belief—really suspend belief—she'll deliver page-turners filled with good guys battling bad guys as well as enjoying domestic tranquility. After Ruth makes it out of the cave, she's cared for by Dixon Noble, the local sheriff and ex-New Yorker with two kids and a missing wife; then Ruth and the gang return to the cave to discover the body of a murdered music student. Lacey and Dillon consult MAX the miracle computer about Moses while Dix introduces Ruth to his domineering father-in-law, Chappy, and musician Gordon, Chappy's geriatric lech of a brother. Coulter alternates between the search for the student's killer and the hunt for Moses, cases tied together only by the FBI agents solving them and the theme of criminally insane grumpy old men. Coulter continues to prove more convincing describing virtue than vice, which means that sympathetic characters and happy endings take precedence over serious detective work.
