Publisher Comments:

FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock are back in this electrifying thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling author.

Seven-year-old Autumn Backman has a gift: she can communicate telepathically with others. Not everyone, mind you, but with a select few with whom she shares a special kinship. When Autumn and her mother, Joanna, take her father's ashes to be buried in the family plot in Brickers Bowl, Georgia, the child witnesses a horrifying sight: her grandmother and two uncles, burying a pile of dead bodies in the middle of the night. They head to Titusville, Virginia, to seek the help of an old family friend, but Autumn senses they need assistance on a grand scale. Using her telepathic powers, Autumn calls a man she'd seen only on television: FBI agent Dillon Savich. But before Savich and his wife and partner, Agent Lacey Sherlock, can get on the scene, Autumn and Joanna flee, fearing the retribution of her uncle Blessed. A huge manhunt ensues, with Titusville Sheriff Ethan Merriweather racing to reach the girl before Blessed can get his hands on her.

Blessed's got big things planned for Autumn and her gift, and he'll stop at nothing to force her into his growing army of exploited children. Savich, Sherlock, and Merriweather face their most elusive foes to keep Autumn out of harm's way — before it's too late.

Review:

"Bestseller Coulter's riveting 13th FBI thriller (after TailSpin) opens with a bang as psychic FBI agent Dillon Savich thwarts a gang of gun-totting robbers attempting to hold up the First Union Bank of Washington, D.C. Three days later, seven-year-old Autumn Backman, who sees Dillon on TV, sends him a telepathic message that she's in danger. Though eager to help Autumn, Dillon is busy tracking a bank robber who escaped, a teenage girl now leaving a trail of bodies in her wake. Meanwhile, in Titusville, Va., Autumn's mother reports her daughter missing to sheriff Ethan Merriweather. After finding Autumn, Ethan discovers her sinister uncle, Blessed, has evil designs on his psychic niece. Before Dillon and his fellow FBI agent and wife, Lacey Sherlock, can get to Titusville, Autumn and her mother flee. Well-developed characters and an expertly paced plot that builds to a breathtaking conclusion make this one of the best in this paranormal suspense series. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The number 1 New York Times–bestselling author is back with an electrifying new entry in the FBI series featuring Savich and Sherlock.

FBI Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith, last seen in Backfire, has been recruited by Dillon Savich to join his unit in Washington, D.C. Savich sees something special in Hammersmith, an almost preternatural instinct for tracking criminals.

While on his way to D.C., Hammersmith plans to visit his sister, Delsey, a student at Stanislaus School of Music in Maestro, Virginia. Before he arrives, he gets a phone call that Delsey was found naked, unconscious, and covered with blood after a wild party. The blood isn't hers—so who does it belong to?

Meanwhile, back in D.C., Savich and Sherlock have their hands full when the grandson of former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank is found murdered, every bone in his body broken, and frozen at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial. 

Was Savich right—is Griffin gifted with a unique ability to "see" how criminals think? And will he figure out who was behind the attempt on Delsey's life—before it's too late?

For experienced FBI Special Agent Dillon Savich to find himself on the floor of a bank during a bank robbery was a bit of luck, good and bad. He was able to alert his partner and wife Special Agent Lacey Sherlock of the robbery in progress as well as be there to help take down the bad guys and girls. While the sole survivor of the gang was in the hospital, she was able to escape with the help of the get-a-way driver. While trying to figure out their next move, Dillon received a message from a seven year old girl named Autumn. This little girl seemed to be in his head, able to talk to him from far away. The whole town of Titusville, Virginia was out looking for the missing girl all day, when Sherriff Ethan Merriweather came home and found she had been playing with his animals, he had no idea the trouble that would follow. Running away from her relatives who knew she had the special gift of telepathy, the whole family seemed to be able to do extraordinary thing like control other with one look, her and her mother (Joanna Backman) just wanted to find help from someone they could trust. With information coming from Savich and Sherlock, Ethan and Joanna were able to figure out a way to avoid her husbands family, for a while.

Book 13.…. Another adventure of Savich and Sherlock, this one had so much action in it, it was non stop from the first words, taking on two ’situations’ at one time. There was very, very little romance in this one at all, it was all adventure and suspense (that is good sometimes). I really enjoyed it. I would have liked a little more of Autumn, Joanna and Ethan, so much togetherness in a short amount of time causes for an interesting set of conditions for getting to know each other. This book is part of the series, as usual with Catherine Coulter’s FBI Thrillers, the character creation and the continuing story of previously met characters are great. There is a mention of another ‘psychic’ event from Dillon’s past, while this type of thing has happened a couple of times before, it was fun to see it again. I would say that if you don’t mind the references to other stories, this could be read as a stand alone, but to really get the whole feel of who Savich and Sherlock are, I find reading a series in order is the best, this one included - even though it is 13 books now.
