"an exciting romantic thriller"
FBI agents Dillon Savitch and his wife Sherlock along with
their son Sean enjoy a vacation in the Pennsylvania Pocono
Mountains when a ghost asks him for help. The incident
spooks Dillon but before he can do anything for the spirit
of Samantha Barrister he and Sherlock return to
Washington, D.C. because Supreme Court Justice Stewart
Quinn Califano was murdered in the courthouse library.
Someone bypassed the security guards and technological
safety devices to perform an apparently professional hit.
Savitch and Sherlock find no clues that could lead them to
a suspect. The victim was a moderate judge with no known
enemies and never stirred up any controversy. The only
wrong doing they can find is that he is having an affair
with Eliza one of his legal aides. His other aides Danny
and Fleurette thought their boss walked on water. When
the culprit kills Danny and Eliza, the Feds use Fleurette
to flush him out but that plan fails almost killing
Fleurette, Savitch, Sherlock and Sean. While they try
again to capture the killer, Savitch knows that when their
ordeal is over, he has a ghost to put to rest.
Catherine Coulter can always be counted on to write an
exciting romantic thriller. Her protagonists, Savitch and
Sherlock are as deeply in love as they were in the first
book in this series and their love for their son is a
beautiful thing to behold. There is a lot of action and
chase scenes in BLOW OUT but the author also concentrates
on her characters and how they act and react to certain
dangerous situations. This book is sure to make the New
York Times Bestseller List.
