Madness and murder rip through the latest suspense novel by the bestselling author of Riptide.
After five consecutive New York Times bestselling FBI novels, Catherine Coulter is a major player in contemporary suspense. "Her suspense thrillers seem to get better and better," confirms Midwest Review of Books. Now Hemlock Bay continues the streak.
FBI agent Dillon Savich is on a challenging case involving the kidnapping of two teenage boys, when trouble boils up in his personal life. His younger sister, Lily, has crashed her Explorer into a redwood in the California town of Hemlock Bay. Is this another suicide attempt, the second since the loss of her young daughter some seven months ago? Savich and his wife and fellow agent, Lacey Sherlock, discover that four paintings left to Lily by her very famous grandmother, artist Sarah Elliott, paintings now worth millions, are at the heart of an intricate conspiracy. Lily and art broker Simon Russo are thrust into ever-widening circles of danger that radiate from a notorious collector's locked room.
Dillon Savich and his sister both will have to face their worst fears in order to survive.
When Father Michael Joseph is viciously murdered in his San Francisco church, his identical twin brother, FBI agent Dane Carver, along with husband-and-wife team, Savich and Sherlock, is determined to find the monster responsible. There is a witness, a homeless woman whose identity is a mystery. When "Nick" Jones comes forward, Dane finds himself in the unlikely role of bodyguard; she just might be next on the killer's list.
But which killer's list?
It seems Nick Jones is running from her own nightmare. In a cat-and-mouse chase that runs from the streets of San Francisco to the television studios of Los Angeles, where a brand-new show is found to have a curious connection to the murders, Dane Carver, Savich and Sherlock are in a race against time to find the madman responsible--but it's already the eleventh hour.
Eleventh Hour is the seventh book in the FBI series, can you believe that? Savich and Sherlock are in top form, and Agent Dane Carver is smart, ruthless, determined. As for Nick Jones, you'll have to read the book to find out exactly who she is.
Are you ready for a wild ride? When six-year-old Sam Kettering is kidnapped and manages to save himself, everything's over, right? Not by a long shot.
Sheriff Katie Benedict contacts Sam's Father, Miles Kettering, ex-FBI agent, and he and Savich fly to eastern Tennessee to determine why Sam was kidnapped and brought to such an unlikely locale as Jessborough, Tennessee.
The kidnappers just don't give up. They try again. The question remains: Why do the kidnappers want this little boy so badly? The investigation leads to a charismatic, intense, twenty-first century Rasputin, Reverend Sooner McCamy, and his gorgeous, enigmatic wife, Elsbeth.
As if the kidnapping case weren't enough, Savich and Sherlock are at the same time desperate to find the cold-blooded killer of three high school math teachers in the Washington, D.C., area.
I absolutely guarantee you will be scratching your head while checking to be sure your doors are locked as you try to figure out these two very different mysteries.
A long weekend in the Poconos is cut short when FBI agents Sherlock and Savich are helicoptered back to Washington, D.C., to lead the investigation into the brutal murder of a Supreme Court Justice.
Savich allows Callie Markham, an investigative reporter for The Washington Post, to partner with local Metro Police liaison Ben Raven since she's got the inside track - she's the stepdaughter of the murdered Justice. Is the murder a terrorist act? Or is it something more personal? Within twenty-four hours there's another murder with the same M.O.
Savich and Sherlock are up against it this time, following leads that seem impossible to connect to the madness. But are they?
Let me know how many times you check your heart monitor.
The explosive action kicks off as treasure-hunting FBI agent Ruth Warnecki is on the trail of stolen Confederate gold hidden in Winkel's Cave in western Virginia. She never expects to find herself chin-deep in a grisly murder that leaves her nearly dead and rocks the town of Maestro.
And at a stakeout in Maryland, FBI agents Dillon Savich and Dane Carver are nearly killed in a horrific explosion while attempting to rescue a kidnap victim, Pinky Womack.
They are led to Arlington National Cemetery, where they not only find Pinky, but Savich also takes a fateful call on his cell from an old man out to kill both him and Sherlock. The thing is, they have no clue why. Pitted against an insane killer and his psychotic teenage girlfriend, Savich and Sherlock find themselves fighting a hate-driven villain with a very long and terrifying memory.
