Présentation de l'éditeur

#1 New York Times–bestselling author Catherine Coulter returns with the newest full-throttle adventure in the FBI series featuring Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock.



Natalie Black, the U.S. ambassador to the Court of St. James, has returned to Washington, her job in jeopardy. Her fiancé, George McCallum, Viscount Lockenby, has died in a car accident, and mysterious rumors begin that she’s responsible begin to surface: she broke off the engagement and, heartbroken, he killed himself. Then someone tries to force her off the M-2 outside London. Again, rumors claim it was a sympathy ploy. When she returns to the United States, she’s nearly killed when a car tries to mow her down while she’s out for a run. No one believes her except FBI Special Agent Davis Sullivan.



Meanwhile someone is following Sherlock. A stalker? Then someone tries to shoot her from the back of a motorcycle, but the assailant gets away. Sherlock next gets a call from an Atlanta mental hospital warning her that Blessed Backman has escaped. This is not good news. Blessed is a talented psychopath out for revenge against the agents, primarily Sherlock, whom his dying mother begged him to kill since she and Savich brought down her cult.



How to find out who’s trying to kill the ambassador to the U.K.? How can they get their hands on Blessed Backman before he succeeds and kills Sherlock? The clock is ticking and the danger intensifies . . .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well-written 14 juillet 2014
Format:Format Kindle
I am in a sort of loss for the right words to use to describe this book. For a start, it is well-written with details that are baffling. The pacing added more spice to the narration and dialogue and the rich array of characters made the events there very believable. One can easily picture the different characters even in their difficult if not bizarre situations. In a style like in Triple Agent Double Cross, the smooth flow of the narrative is easy to follow. Kudos Catherine Coulter.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 not even same old same old 15 juillet 2014
Par Liza Brings - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The nice things about formulaic series is that you know what to expect, but that's ok because you like it. But when it doesn't even live up to that, it's disappointing. All the discoveries take place in a single scene of 10 pages - even then, they're reported in after the fact. The romance is lackluster. The supernatural element is boring and perfunctory. The bad guys fly in from left scene like a middle grade version of Hansel and Gretel. I feel like I'm just helping the author buy another mansion. Not next time, though. None of this prebuy nonsense. If I don't see what I like, in the reviews and samples, I'm moving on. Too many good new authors out there to waste an extra $7 on bad writing, poor plot, tired characters, and complete lack of charm. I must have read split Second 50 times. Riptide, Tailspin, the Maze, all just terrific. I was worried when Bombshell came out because it was also pretty weak. With Power Play though, this might be slow march to death.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 We meet again Savich and Sherlock 9 juillet 2014
Par Gail Ofterdinger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
My British husband has me listening to the Paul and Steve Temple stories on BBC radio for the past year or so and I could not help but compare those works to this. Mr. and Mrs. Temple work with Scotland Yard to solve crimes in England. They are shot at, run off the road, poisoned or drugged and so on. Here we have the reverse, an American couple, Savich and Sherlock, working with the FBI trying to keep a diplomat and her family from being killed. Throw in a deranged escapee who is stalking our pair of detectives and has the ability to mesmerize his victims into doing his bidding and we have an exciting cocktail. This is my first Coulter read and I found it quite enjoyable. It is fast paced and full of suspense. There is romantic tension, and even an appearance of a member of Scotland Yard. If I even get to meet Ms. Coulter, I will have to ask her if she is a fan of Paul and Steve Temple.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 ANOTHER WINNER FROM CATHERINE COULTER! 8 juillet 2014
Par Online Book Reviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Power Play by #1 New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter is the eighteenth book in her FBI thriller series. In the tradition of the series, Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock continued to make their grand appearance in secondary roles while two new main characters are introduced. The story also follows two plots as it is with the earlier books, and though the pattern in the series remains the same, Catherine manages to dish out a thrilling entertainer, and there is no lack of action, suspense, romance and intrigue.

In Power Play, a disgraced U.S. ambassador to the Court of St. James Natalie Black returns to Washington in the wake of a scandal. Her fiancé was killed in a car accident, and the British tabloids hinted that she was indirectly responsible for it. Though President Thornton Gilbert wants her to stay, Arliss Abbott, US Secretary of State wants her to resign. The death of her fiancé was followed by someone trying to force her off the road outside London and a car trying to mow her down in Washington. These debilitating incidents greatly unnerved her but no one was willing to buy her story.

FBI Special Agent Davis Sullivan, however, is deeply concerned and decided to get to the bottom of the mystery and protect her from assailants. While Sullivan is busy with Natalie Black’s case, his boss Dillon Savich and his wife Lacey Sherlock are not faring too good. Blessed Backman whom they apprehended in an earlier book has escaped from a mental hospital, and is determined to wreak vengeance. Sullivan is assigned to guard Perry Black, Natalie’s daughter and a sportswriter. As the two get close to each other, Perry’s longtime friend Day Abbott, is pulled in for questioning. With the attacks on Natalie continuing, Sullivan faces an uphill task to track down the perpetrators before things go out of hand.

Power Play by Catherine Coulter is immensely enjoyable, fast-paced and full of suspense. The romantic tension between Sullivan and Perry is delightful. The characters are well-developed and their roles in the story well-defined. The deranged escapee Blessed Backman has added a touch of horror to the story as he stalked Savich and Sherlock. Catherine’s fine writing and creativity has turned Power Play into a thrilling read.

Honestly what is going on here? I like Catherine Coulter and I pre ordered this book but boring doesn't start to cover it. I don't know what to say about the comments and silly interactions and do not even get me started about the age-bias music comments. Good grief what happened to her novels with real plot lines and interesting characters. This book must have been phoned in.

Par Ashyne96 - Publié sur Amazon.com

Let me start off by saying that I am a huge fan of Cathetine Coulter's FBI books, but this one had me completely baffled. I purchased the book yesterday and finished it this morning. There were too many characters with way too many storylines. I spent a lot of time skipping over parts that I couldn't understand why was even included in the book. A lot of background information on secondary, and even tertiary characters. I am still trying to figure out, was the book about Savich and Sherlock, or EVERYONE else? Ms. Coulter's writing style has completely changed since Savich and Sherlock's relationship in The Maze (which by the way....was the BEST book ever!!). I remember when Savich ate meat , drank coffee, and fought off bad guys in The Cove. Now, there seems to be a new special agent every year, rescuing a woman because someone is trying to kill her...of course, with S&S is assisting. As I stated, I'm not a professional writer, but I am an experienced reader of these books to know when a writer's style has changed. If you don't believe me, re-read The Maze and skip ahead to some her books now, and you will be able to see the difference.
