WHIPLASH
by Catherine Coulter

Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Suspense

RT Rating

Two new cases require the talents of the FBI’s cleverest husband and wife duo. The profile and the stakes are high in both cases, but that won’t faze Sherlock and Savich. Coulter continues to incorporate fresh characters and timely topics into her novels, keeping them clever and highly entertaining.

P.I. Erin Pulaski gets in over her head when she looks into the production problems plaguing a cancer treatment drug. While Erin does some B&E to gain information, a German troubleshooter for the drug company in question is murdered nearby. Sherlock and Savich are sent in to assist FBI agent Bowie Richards as the murder starts to point to serious problems associated with the drug company. Savich also gets tapped when the poisoning of a lobbyist might have been an assassination attempt on a senator. Politics, drugs and money can all add up to multiple motives and murder. (PUTNAM, Jun., 416 pp., $24.95)

Whiplash by Catherine Coulter

Submitted by hcabm on July 26, 2010 - 5:44am.

FBI agents are busy and intense. They can be called upon to juggle a number of cases the same time. Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich are looking into the case of a so called accident involving the Vice President of the United States in Maryland and supervising Agents Bowie's investigation into a break in a pharmaceutical company in Connecticut . There was also a "murder of a foriegn Schiffer Hartwin employee behind the drug company's U.S. headquarters."

I was drawn into the story with its realistic and gritty descriptions of the events that unfolded. Great dective work on the part of our FBI agents is what kept me interested.

Erin Pulaski unwitting involvement also kept me riveted . She is investigating the shortage of the drug , Culovort which is critical in the treatments of some types of cancer. All of this is central to Bowie’s part of the case . The backdrop is Connecticut and Schiffer Hartwin Pharmaceutical Company.

The bad guys certainly get theirs in the end . However it is always a amazing what people will do for money .and that jealousy can drive you to unspeakable acts.

A wonderful addition to Ms. Catherine Coulters FBI thrillers.
