Catherine Coulter’s FBI series “twists at
every turn” (San Diego Union-Tribune). In two
of her most gripping books—Riptide and Hemlock
Bay—FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock face
dangerous threats in both their professional and personal
Riptide (originally published July 2000 in
hardcover and July 2001 in mass market paperback)
Political speechwriter Jessie Matlock is at the top of her
professional game, working for the re-election campaign of
New York’s popular governor, when she receives the
first phone call: “Stop sleeping with the governor or
I’ll kill him.” Though Jessie isn’t
sleeping with the governor, the menacing ultimatums persist.
The police suddenly stop believing her, even after the
stalker murders an innocent person to prove his point.
When the governor is shot in the neck, Jessie flees for the
safety of coastal Maine, choosing to hide not only from the
stalker but also from the authorities. For sanctuary, she
goes to Riptide, the home of a college friend—but soon
finds herself at even greater risk.
Hemlock Bay (originally published August
2001 in hardcover and July 2002 in mass market
FBI Agent Dillon Savich is on a challenging case involving
the kidnapping of two teenage boys, when trouble boils up in
his personal life. His younger sister, Lily, has crashed her
Explorer into a redwood in California’s Hemlock Bay.
Is it another suicide attempt, the second since the loss of
her young daughter some seven months before? Savich and his
wife and fellow agent, Lacey Sherlock, discover that four of
Lily’s paintings—left to her by their very
famous grandmother, artist Sarah Elliott, and now worth
millions—are at the heart of an intricate conspiracy.
Lily and art broker Simon Russo are thrust into
ever-widening circles of danger that radiate from a
notorious collector’s locked room.
Dillon Savich and his sister, Lily, both have to face their
worst fears to survive.v
