The Devil’s Triangle is the fourth installment in The Brit in the FBI series co-written by Bestselling authors Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison. In this novel, special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine actually team up with an international criminal known as The Fox, who was hired to steal an ancient artifact from a museum in Istanbul. The Fox calls Drummond for help when her client tries to kill her after she delivers the artifact. That same client is an accomplished geologist like some of her other family members, but is a ruthless killer who devises a plot to blow up Washington, DC, using technology developed by her grandfather that allows him to control weather. Drumond, Caine, and The Fox must work together to prevent her from carrying out her plot.

Those who are familiar with Coulter's FBI Series will find this book has signature Coulter elements: suspense, a bit of romance, and some supernatural phenomena, that will keep readers on the edge. Ellison’s contributions give the novel a different feel and make this series stand out; she is also an excellent thriller writer and the combination of the two makes for an excellent novel.

The characters are well-developed and even fairly believable; Drummond consults with some of the characters from Coulter’s FBI series, so readers who are familiar will feel they are reading about old friends.

Although the plot of the novel is a bit implausible, the authors’ writing skills make the story almost believable. The authors are skilled in making their characters seem real; the good guys are likeable, and the bad guys are absolutely evil, making the novel one that is difficult to put down.
