This is my first Coulter book and I have mixed feelings about it. Although the mystery was well written and the romance was well written, some of the character interactions were just too phony to believe. It was a good book, don't get me wrong. I'm just glad I didn't pay to read it! For free, it's worth the read. I'll give it 4 stars.
Fast, quick read! Scarey and you stay that way for at least a week!
very good book ,suspenceful couldn't put it down great book
This is a different type of book from other Coulter books, Good story. Well told, as usual. I reallt enjoyed it!
Mystery and suspense - you won't be able to put it down!
Just couldn't get into this one, and I loved the FBI series and some of her older historical novels.
A real page turner, I could hardly put it down.
This Coulter suspense romance is so convolated you will have to read it to get any idea of what is going on. It is worth the reading.
Very good mystery supsense
Coulter says: "Impulse is a exciting mystery suspense that first came out in 1990. I've done a bit of rewriting and uptdated it."
Excellent read. Can't put it down once you start.
THIS WAS ONE OF THE BETTER BOOKS THAT I HAVE READ.
IMPULSE is an exciting mystery suspense. Fast moving, you just want to read it all in one sitting, but with 419 pages not easy.
In an unusual move, author Catherine Coulter has updated mystery-romance-suspense novel that first came out in 1990 and she makes good on her promise that "I'm going to have you turning pages so fast you could compete in the Indy 500."
Incredible story that will keep you up all night.
I have just started reading this author and want to read more and more. Great plot and fast action. This was a CANNOT PUT DOWN book for me.
Another great Catherine Coulter...This is the story of a woman who discovers her comatose mother's journal and finds the name of her "real" father, Dominick Giovanni. The suspense will keep you flipping the pages
Mystery from cover to cover. You won't want to put it down until its
finished. Try to figure out who killed who and why. Coulter has written another good thriller.
A great romantic suspense!
A weak, tangled plot dims the shine of two fairly enjoyable sparring partners in this contrived novel of romantic suspense set in the high-stakes arena of black-market arms and art. Rafaella Holland, wealthy, shapely, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter with a powerful karate kick, goes undercover at a Caribbean resort owned by the gangster who seduced and discarded her besotted mother many years before. Rafaella is his daughter. When her mother is hit by a car owned by the gangster's estranged wife, Rafaella decides to expose him for the snake he is. Charming her way into the resort, she runs up against the manager Marcus Devlin (actually a good guy working for U.S. Customs), whom she instantly distrusts and immediately beds. The pair dodge bullets, bicker and try to unmask each other while a mysterious third party makes repeated attempts on her father's life.
Rafaella Holland, a Pulitzer Prize winner, now a journalist for the Boston Tribune, discovers from her comatose mother's journals that her "real" father is Dominick Giovanni, a wealthy, very powerful arms dealer who lives & runs his operations from his own private island compound in the Caribbean. She wants revenge for what he did to her mother. She wants to gather enough proof to send him to prison for the rest of his miserable life. Marcus Devlin manages the resort on Giovanni's Island, private playground for the wealthy & Powerful. He's very good at what he does, but Rafaella wonders if he's really what he seems. Then someone tries to kill Dominick Giovanni. Why? Then someone tries to kill Rafaella & Marcus. Why? As Rafaella & Marcus grown closer, events threaten to spin out of control when their small world on Giovanni's Island starts to implode.
