Book Review - The Lost Key

Sherlock and Savich.  If those names ring a bell for you, then you are likely familiar with the FBI series by Catherine Coulter. This book is one of a new spin-off series by Coulter which features British agent Nicholas Drummond.  While Sherlock and Savich are not central characters, it is fun that they pop up in the story from time-to-time.

These FBI books by Catherine Coulter are ones that I watch for.  When a new one comes out, I immediately snatch it up...they are that good. This one was no exception.  Coulter chose a good co-writer for this series.  I would look for books written by Ellison alone.

In this story, the plot centers around an international secret society. Are you intrigued?  You should be.  Go get this book and read it; you will be happy you did.

Here is the synopsis for The Lost Key by Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison taken from Amazon:

     Freshly minted FBI agent Nicholas Drummond is barely out of his Quantico training when he and his partner, Mike Caine, are called to investigate a stabbing on Wall Street.
     Their investigation, however, yields more questions than answers. It quickly becomes clear that the victim, John Pearce, was more than the naval historian and antiquities dealer he appeared to be. What Drummond doesn’t know is that buying and selling rare books was Pearce’s cover, and that he had devoted his life to discovering the whereabouts of a missing World War I U-boat concealing a stash of gold bullion, and an unexpected surprise that only raises more questions. When Drummond and Caine find both of Pearce’s adult children have disappeared, the case assumes a new sense of urgency. The FBI agents know their best lead lies in the victim’s cryptic final words—“The key is in the lock.” But what key? What lock?
     The search for Adam and Sophia Pearce takes them on an international manhunt, which threatens to run them afoul of an eccentric billionaire industrialist with his own plans not only for the lost gold, but the creation of a weapon unlike anything the world has ever seen.
 This one is a page-turner.
