I loved the twists and turns in the plot. The characters are great and one can't help but fall in love with them and feel their fear. As usual I had a hard time putting the book down.

Although I\'m not a usual fan of the crime drama genre, this was a good read. My first by this author. I found it to be an interesting mix of two stories going on at the same time.

Catherine Coulter grabs your attenion within the first few pages. Having to put the book down to deal with "real life" is difficult as you are waiting to see what happens next. She describes her charecters, the scenes, the action in wonderful detail. Your brain will have a movie playing in your head as you read.

This book has suspense, action and a little romance.

Although it is part of her FBI series, it is a great stand alone story.

FBI Agent Dillon Savich is on a challenging case involving the kidnapping of two teenage boys, when trouble boils up in his personal life. His younger sister, Lily, has crashed her Explorer into a redwood in California's Hemlock Bay. Is it another suicide attempt, the second since the loss of her young daughter some seven months before? Savich and his wife and fellow agent, Lacey Sherlock, discover that four of Lily's paintings-left to her by their very famous grandmother, artist Sarah Elliott, and now worth millions-are at the heart of an intricate conspiracy. Lily and art broker Simon Russo are thrust into ever-widening circles of danger that radiate from a notorious collector's locked room.

FBI agents Dillon and Lacey Sherlock Savich return (The Maze, etc.) in Coulter's latest romance thriller to take down the satanic child-killing Tuttle twins in a Maryland barn before rushing off to California to save Dillon's sister, Lily, from her in-laws. Once an accomplished cartoonist, Lily has battled depression since the death of her daughter despite, or perhaps because of, her husband, a psychiatrist more devoted to Lily's inheritance (her famous grandmother's paintings) than to Lily. After Dillon's friend, debonair art broker Simon Russo, reveals that four of the paintings are forgeries, Lily finds herself hypnotized, mugged, caught in a fire, chased onto a cliff and kidnapped as she and Simon fly from Washington to California to Sweden. Coulter creates such vivid characters and fast-moving plotlines that fans of her almost 50 novels will overlook her occasional leaps of logic (tiny Lily defeats a mugger with a few quick karate chops) and boilerplate dialogue (" `A young guy tried to murder me this morning.' `What? Oh, God, no!' "). In return, she spices up her story with a dash of gothic horror, a splash of romance and a steady determination not to take herself or her genres too seriously.

FBI special agent Dillon Savich rescues two boys who were about to be dismembered by the Warlocks, a sibling pair of psychotic serial killers, in an eerie X-Files-type encounter. Killing Tommy and shooting off Timmy's arm, Dillon discovers that Timmy is really Tammy. Assuming that the case is closed, he and his wife, Sherlock, also an FBI agent, head home, where they get a phone call informing them that Dillon's sister, Lily, is in the hospital. Lily insists that her car crash was not a second attempt to take her life in the wake of the death of her six-year-old daughter. Dillon investigates and uncovers a possible motive for murder: Lily's husband and/or in-laws would have benefited from her death since she inherited some paintings worth millions of dollars. Dillon calls in his art expert friend, Simon, who discovers that half the paintings have been stolen and replaced with forgeries. Lily finds a friend and soulmate in Simon as they face danger in their quest for the paintings and the thieves. Meanwhile one-armed Tammy has escaped custody, and Dillon may be the only one who can stop her from killing again

A little predictable. Follows same plot format as previous FBI books (i.e., main character makes stupid move to put herself in danger; and is rescued by her handsome protector). But, all in all, a very good read. Very fast-paced.

Subplots mesh very poorly. Writer didn't do her homework. The whole reference to the escape from the criminal psych ward made me laugh out loud! Totally ignorant of psych policy and procedure. The writer doesn't even seem to know how long milk, cereal and apples keep! I wouldn't recommend it.
