Another 5 star read from Catherine Coulter!!
Savich & Sherlock’s newest adventure starts off suddenly, when Sherlock is out running errands, and she is suddenly t-boned in an intersection, causing her to strike a pedestrian as her car careens out of control. When she regains consciousness at the hospital, she remembers the body striking her windshield, but no victim is found at the scene. Who was he and what became of him?
Agent Griffin Hammersmith is out visiting a college friend in Gaffer’s Ridge and is walking through the streets of the more remote sections of town when he hears a voice screaming for help. Taking a quick look around, he sees no one, and he heads for the nearest home to assist. Inside, Carson DeSilva, has managed to free herself from after being kidnapped and wrapped in duct tape, and is waving a broken piece of pipe at her captor as she yells for help. Griffin bursts through the door, distracting the kidnapper, who Carson then hits in the head, subduing him. When they call for help from the local police, they learn that then kidnapper is the sheriff’s nephew, and both Griffin & Carson find themselves locked up. Griffin calls Savich for help.
As Griffin & Carson talk amongst themselves, he learns of her abilities, that seem to mirror his own – she had heard the kidnapper, Rafer Bodine, thinking about three missing girls, and how one of them had died hard. As the FBI descends upon the town of Gaffer’s Ridge and takes over the investigation, it appears that the entire Bodine family perhaps has something to hide…but what??
As both investigations continue, Sherlock struggles to overcome her injuries, as she and Dillon continue their search for the missing and injured pedestrian, they learn that he was a CIA analyst, and surmise that he is on the run…but from what? Meanwhile, during a search of the Bodine properties, Sherlock learns that the Bodine matriarch may have a few psychic secrets of her own…
This is another series that I just cannot get enough of! Sherlock & Savich are like old friends that have come back to visit, each time I open the cover of a new book, and I just want the story to go on and on. Saying goodbye as I turn the last page is always so hard to do! Another, great, un-put-downable read from one of the best!!
I was fortunate to receive this book as an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an objective review.
