Believe it or not, this is the 24th installment of the highly popular FBI Thriller Series by Catherine Coulter. Fans will welcome Deadlock, which is typical of Coulter and includes a mix of suspense, intrigue, romance, and sometimes a bit of the paranormal. The FBI is investigating some strange goings-on with a politician’s wife, who is the victim of an attempted kidnapping after seeing a psychic who insisted that her late grandfather wanted to contact her. Sherlock and Savich are involved, but become sidetracked when they discover that a killer is trying to eliminate Savich’s loved ones as revenge.

Fans of the series already know that Coulter is an excellent storyteller, and her characters are well-developed so that they seem like real friends. The stories flow and the books are easy to understand. Coulter has a way of building suspense and keeping readers on the edges of their seats. This novel is no exception, and a new character, Pippa Cinelli, who seems to fit in with the other characters; Savich’s FBI seems like a great group to be a member of, and the protagonists are upbeat and likeable even through the scenarios that are designed to destroy their lives.

Coulters novels have minimal violence and sex, making the series suitable for almost everyone. Deadlock is fun to read, and will keep readers wondering and in suspense throughout. Fans of the series will welcome this novel which is a fun and fast read, but has enough suspense to keep readers interested. Highly recommended.
