Full of karate, pistol-whipping, and other malevolent mayhem, Catherine Coulter's The Maze could be described as a junior-varsity version of Silence of the Lambs. As in that novel, the heroine in The Maze, Lacey Sherlock, becomes an FBI agent to help unravel the mysteries of her own past. Seven years after her sister was brutally slain by a serial killer (the wonderfully creepy "String Killer"), Lacey is assigned to the FBI's Criminal Apprehension Unit (CAU). The CAU, headed by brawny bureau egghead Dillon Savich, uses computer modeling to catch the baddest guys around--it's like profiling, but with databases. Before you know it, Dillon and Lacey are tangling with the String Killer. Even when the scenarios are not terribly inventive--"Let's use Lacey as bait! What a great idea!"--Coulter makes sure that her bad guys are good and twisted. A touch of bloody-mindedness can cover up a multitude of sins, and on that score, The Maze satisfies

I read this book after reading The Cove. I like the fact that the main characters from the first book also have a small part in this book. It ties the two books together nicely and kind of gives the reader a clue to what the people from the Cove are doing now, with out distracting the reader from the characters and plot of the Maze.....

A good read. I recommend This series of books to any one who likes to read a series and see the same people repeated though out..... But because the books add new characters and add onto the story and each case is new it never gets boring.

I couldn't get into the first book in this series, but I enjoyed "The Maze" very much. Sherlock on her own is too impulsive, but she and Savich make a good team. I'm looking forward to reading the other books featuring them.

This is a "Brilliance Bookcassette" Unabridged Edition, 4 cassettes (4 tracks each), Running Time approx. 12 hours. You need a functioning Left/Right speaker fade capability to listen to this book. Check your player before ordering - can you switch from the Left speaker to the Right speaker? If you can, you can request this bookSherlock and Savitch Meet! Lacey Sherlock is driven tio find the man responsible for her sister's death 7 years earlier. What better way to accomplish this than to join the FBI. While there she meets Dillon Savitch who takes her into his computer forensic team. Now she is right where she needs to be to get information on her sister's killer. When the killer strikes again, she knows his MO and makes tracks to capture him and put him away. Dillon has no knowledge of her past, or reasons for joining the FBI (in the course of the book, he "sees the light", and is really ticked off.This book keeps your interest from the first cassette to the last. There are many, many plot twists and storyline turns, so that you never become sure of who actually did kill the sister. Add to this, a lusting brother-in-law, a highly disfunctional family, you will be guessing 'till the end! There are humorous parts in this book as well! I found that refreshing! Maybe because I'm not used to it.Note* This Audio Book requires a fully functioning "Balance Control"(left/right), as each cassette is recorded on 4 tracks instead of the normal 2.

I so enjoyed this book. It had suspense, romance and humor. It was centered on how Dillon and Sherlock (FBI agents) teamed up. It's the first in Coulter's FBI series. I enjoy any of Coulter's books with Dillon and Sherlock and did not realize that there was a book describing their meeting, teaming, and romancing.

Catherine Coulter does it again. What a enthralling book. Lacey Sherlock is driven to find the man who killed her sister. What better way to do that than to join the FBI. There she meets Dillon Savich who brings her into his computer forensic team. She is right where she needs to be in order to find out about the String Killer. During this time, Sherlock and Savich are becoming closer by working out together at the gym and working on the same cases. Finally, after seven years, the killer strikes again. She recognizes his m.o. immediately and rushes to Boston to capture him. Unfortunately, she does not tell Savich what she is doing and then the fun begins. He is furious that she has not told him of her past. After several days, he decides to let her pursue the case, but only with him as her partner. Many twists and turns follow to make you wonder if the string killer really did it.Was it the jealous husband? Was it her judgemental father? Her crazy mother? This book will keep you guessing until the end. Sherlock and Savich are a lot fun and their love story is wonderful. Also, if you read the first book in this series, The Cove, then look for James and Sally Quinlan.

Seven years ago, 19-year-old Lacey Sherlock started down a career path that would eventually bring her face to face with her older sister's murderer. She is thrilled to be selected to join FBI Agent and computer genius Dillon Savich's Criminal Apprehension Unit (CAU). Fearing that the FBI would not accept her if they knew of her hidden quest, Sherlock has played down any connection to Belinda Madigan, the String Killer's fourth victim.

Sherlock proves herself quick and intuitive as she joins CAU, and on her off time she searches data banks for clues regarding her sister's killer. Then, seven years to the day since the last murder, Sherlock finds an account of a Boston murder that chills her blood: the String Killer has returned.

Dillon Savich realizes that his new agent is moonlighting, but despite his anger, he agrees to let her follow up on the Boston case. With Sherlock's detailed knowledge of the killer and new computer technology, a promising suspect emerges. Sherlock volunteers to play bait to entice the suspect, Merlin Jones, to strike yet again.

Following Jones' arrest, Sherlock should be thrilled and relieved that the murderer of eight women has finally been caught; but doubts arise as Merlin plays mind games and inconsistencies in the evidence arise. Merlin Jones is definitely a killer, but did he kill Belinda?
Great book!

This is the third book I have read by Catherine Coulter and the second in the series. I started out with the third novel "The Target" which sold me into reading more of her books, it was an excellent read which I couldn't put down! I can say "The Maze" has a fair story and story line as did "The Cove" her first book, not top notch, but sufficient. Not many twists and turns although it did have me guessing some! The problem I have had with Ms. Coulter's first two books is she tries to get too cute with her writing by injecting comments that in normal life wouldn't happen. The comments try to be cute, quirt, and just odd, they in my belief completely takes away from telling the story! I believe it actually slows down the flow of the book, as I had to stop and re-read, then think did they really say that?? At any rate I do enjoy the main characters Dillion Savich who helps solve the crime via his computer inputs, and Lacey Sherlock a new agent, whom are both taken with each other and team up to solve a string of vicious murders involving a serial killer who torments his victims in a Maze. I would suggest if you are a first time reader with this author, start with the third in the series as I did. Then decide if you want to go read the first two books in the series or move to the 4th. I am hoping the fourth picks up with the pace that the third book had!!!!
