Library Journal Review
Coulter (Point Blank) will delight her fans with her latest FBI thriller, which begins with Special Agent Cheney Stone saving wealthy widow Julia Ransom from being drowned in San Francisco Bay. As their relationship develops, Julia continues to be the target of a murderer, and Cheney serves as her protector. In an equally captivating subplot, Virginia Sheriff Dixon Noble receives information that a certain woman in San Francisco is a dead ringer for his wife, Christie, missing for more than three years. With the help of FBI Unit Chief Dillon Savich, Dix travels to San Francisco to meet this woman, Charlotte Pollack, and is amazed at the resemblance. But still more disconcerting is that Charlotte is wearing a bracelet almost identical to one he bought Christie years earlier. As the two plot lines creatively merge for intense mystery and suspense, romance sizzles between Julia and Cheney. But can Julia survive the efforts of a determined murderer to build a new life with Cheney? Coulter, one of the best romantic suspense authors, is in top form, providing readers with pulse-pounding mystery that continues until the breathless conclusion. Recommended for all public libraries.

Publishers Weekly Review
At the start of bestseller Coulter's gripping 11th FBI thriller (after Point Blank), Julia Ransom is enjoying a liberating stroll on San Francisco's Pier 39 after having been suspected of the brutal murder of her renowned psychic husband, Dr. August Ransom, six months earlier and hounded by the media. When an unknown assailant throws Julia off the pier, FBI Special Agent Cheney Stone rescues her. Stone later senses a link between the attack and the death of Julia's husband. Meanwhile in Virginia, Sheriff Dixon Noble is finally feeling his life is getting back to normal after his wife went missing three years earlier. When Noble comes to San Francisco to pursue a lead into his wife's disappearance, he gets involved in a harrowing investigation with Stone into both mysteries. As usual, the author conjures strong visual images, particularly a wild car chase through the streets of San Francisco. Credible characters and a fascinating look at the world of psychics and thieves help make this one of Coulter's best. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
