Notes From Your Bookseller

Catherine Coulter’s Vortex will leave you spinning. A brutal murder and shocking kidnap attempt open the latest book in the FBI Series and the pace only picks up from there. Coulter gives us two gripping mysteries in one!

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Agents Savich and Sherlock are back in the latest installment in Catherine Coulter's #1 New York Times bestselling FBI Thriller series, and this time both are enlisted to help women with traumatic pasts who are in mortal danger.

When she was twelve years old, Kirra Mandarian's parents were murdered and she barely escaped with her life. Fourteen years later Kirra is a commonwealth attorney back home in Porte Franklin, Virginia, and her goal is to find out who killed her parents and why. She assumes the identity of E.N.-Eliot Ness-and gathers proof to bring down the man she believes was behind her parents' deaths. She quickly learns that big-time criminals are very dangerous indeed and realizes she needs Dillon Savich's help. Savich brings in Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith to work with Lieutenant Jeter Thorpe, the young detective who'd saved Kirra years before.

Emma Hunt, a piano prodigy and the granddaughter of powerful crime boss Mason Lord, was only six years old when she was abducted. Then, she was saved by her adoptive father, San Francisco federal judge Ramsey Hunt. Now a twelve-year-old with a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, she narrowly saves herself from a would-be kidnapper at Davies Hall in San Francisco. Worried for her safety, Emma's entire family joins her for her next performance, at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.. Sherlock and officers from METRO are assigned to protect her, but things don't turn out as planned...

Early in Coulter’s propulsive 26th FBI thriller (after 2021’s Vortex), prosecutor Kirra Mandarian, who moved to Australia 14 years earlier after her parents were murdered, returns home to Porte Franklyn, Va. In seeking to find out who killed her parents, Kirra uncovers evidence of criminal activity among Porte Franklyn’s elite and passes it on to FBI agent Dillon Savich. Meanwhile, Savich’s wife and fellow FBI agent, Lacey Sherlock, takes time off from the FBI to help her friends Molly and Ramsey Hunt. Sherlock agrees to watch over the Hunts’ 12-year-old daughter, Emma, a piano prodigy, as she performs at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. At an earlier concert, Emma, the granddaughter of a mob boss, narrowly escaped being abducted while performing in her home city of San Francisco. When Sherlock and Molly find themselves in danger, Sherlock must employ her keenly honed survival skills to outwit their assailants. Scintillating suspense surrounds the dual mysteries as the stakes rise for Savich and Sherlock and those they’re seeking to protect. Series fans will be riveted from the very first page. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group. (Aug.)

Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock, Coulter’s famous pair of married FBI agents, take on two cases that have roots buried deep in the past.

After the murder of her parents in Virginia, 12-year-old Allison Rendahl barely escaped by climbing out a window and hiding in a cave. Her Uncle Leo took her back to his home in Australia and raised her to be a strong woman who helped him lead extreme adventures, but her mental scars remain. Now, under the name Kirra Mandarian and after attending law school at the University of Virginia, she's returned to her hometown as a prosecuting attorney, hoping to solve the murder of her parents. Finding a painting by her father, who was an artist, with photos taped to the back gives her the clues she needs, and using the name Eliot Ness, she gathers and sends incriminating information to Agent Dillon Savich. On the other side of the country, 12-year-old piano virtuoso Emma Hunt, who was traumatized at age 6 when she was kidnapped by a troubled priest, becomes the target of another predator. Savich and Sherlock, his partner and wife, were involved in the original case, and the Hunt family is flying to D.C. both to attend Emma’s concert at the Kennedy Center and to get her into a safer environment. Emma’s grandfather, a sophisticated crime boss, could well be the reason Emma is targeted for kidnapping. At any rate, the people involved in both cases are stone-cold killers who will use any means to achieve their goals. Savich and Sherlock must identify those goals or die trying.

Pulse-pounding terror mixed with romance makes for page-turning pleasure.
