Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock return in a dazzling new thriller. Blowout takes excitement to an all-time high level.

Married FBI agents Savich and Sherlock work and play hard: devoted to their jobs, their son, and each other, they approach each new case with gusto, and appreciate every moment of downtime they can grab. But a long weekend getaway at a secluded cabin in the Pennsylvania woods is cut short when the agents are summoned back to Washington, where a nightmare awaits them: The night before the Supreme Court is to hear opening arguments in a highly controversial death-penalty case, a prominent judge is murdered in the court's third-floor library. Savich and Sherlock are charged with heading the investigation but when the killings continue, each targeting another brilliant, successful Washington power broker, the agents are faced with their most baffling and shocking case of their lives.

As dramatic and suspenseful as anything she's ever written, Blowout is Catherine Coulter at the very height of her storytelling powers.

Review:

"The latest in prolific novelist Coulter's series of FBI thrillers once again features high-powered husband and wife team Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock. In the middle of a long-awaited vacation with their young son, the two are called to investigate the heinous midnight murder of a Supreme Court Justice, committed in the Court's library despite tight, round-the-clock security. Known as a moderate, Justice Stewart Califano was undoubtedly contemplating an upcoming case involving the death penalty for psychopathic juveniles when he was brutally garroted, his fingers sliced off as he struggled to escape. The FBI is aided in the case by the CIA, Secret Service and metropolitan police as well as by the judge's stepdaughter, an investigative reporter for the Washington Post. Yet within 48 hours, two of the Justice's young law clerks are murdered in the same grisly fashion — the lovable Daniel strangled with his own St. Christopher medal chain, and the formidable Eliza killed while she's on the phone with Savich. An unrelated supernatural side plot is distracting, and the case's solution comes from out of left field, but fans of the author's fictional duo will get their fix — the climactic face-off takes place in Savich and Sherlock's own living room." Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)

About the Author

Catherine Coulter is the author of fifty novels, thirty-eight of which have been New York Times bestsellers. She earned her reputation writing historical romances, but in recent years turned her hand to penning — with great success — contemporary suspense novels.

Catherine grew up on a horse ranch in Texas. She graduated from the University of Texas and received her masters at Boston College. Prior to becoming a full-time writer, she worked on Wall Street as a speechwriter for a company president. She loves to travel and ski, reads voraciously, and has a reputation for telling jokes — believing the publishing business is too crazy not to laugh. Catherine lives in Marin County, California with her physician husband.
