    Book details


A serial killer is on the loose, and it's up to FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock to bring him down. They soon discover the killer has blood ties to an infamous and now long-dead monster. Savich and Sherlock are joined by agents Lucy Carlyle and Cooper McKnight, and the chase is on. At the same time, Agent Lucy Carlyle learns from her dying father that her grandfather didn't simply walk away from his family twenty-two years ago: he was, in fact, murdered by his wife, Lucy's grandmother. Determined to uncover the truth, Lucy moves into her grandmother's Chevy Chase mansion. What she finds, however, is a nightmare. Not only does she discover the truth of what happened all those years ago, but she faces a new mystery, one that has been passed down from mother to daughter for generations. As the hunt for the killer escalates, Savich realizes he's become the killer's focus, and perhaps the next victim. Only Lucy can stop this madness before it's too late.

    I decided to read a book from a series that I haven’t read in a while and it honestly is like meeting up with dear friends I haven’t seen in a while. What a welcome surprise! Split Second by Catherine Coulter is actually the 15th book in the FBI series, but I read the others before I started blogging and reviewing books.Let me just say if you like murder mysteries and police procedure novels, these are all really, really good. They remind me so much of Criminal Minds and that is a good thing! FBI agent Dillon Savich is a computer whiz and when you add his skills in logic to the logic skills of his wife, FBI Agent Lacey Sherlock no criminal is safe.The stories, though, go much deeper than just the crime fighting. You get to delve into the hearts and minds of so many of the characters in Coulter’s writing. She has a way with words that pulls you in and allows you to connect with Savich and Sherlock, as well as the other agents with whom they work.In Split Second Savich stops a robbery in a convenience store close to his home, but something about the scene feels off to him. Meanwhile, there is a killer on the loose who meets women at bars, takes them home and then garrotes them with wire. All of this at the same time that Agent Lacy Carlyle’s father passed away, with an ominous message just before he died. Bringing all of these stories to full circle takes so much skill in writing and Coulter handles it all with the flourish that is a trademark of her writing.This is a great addition to this series and one that I highly recommend!Catherine Coulter’s FBI Series in order leading up to Split Second:The CoveA (1996)The MazeA (1997)The TargetB (1998)The EdgeB (1999)RiptideC (2000)Hemlock BayC (2001)Eleventh Hour (2002)Blindside (2003)Blowout (2004)Point Blank (2005)Double Take (2007)Tailspin (2008)KnockOut (2009)Whiplash (2010)Split Second (201)Backfire (2012)Bombshell (2013)Power Play (2014)Nemesis (2015)Insidious (2016)Enigma (2017)Omnibus Editions:The Beginning. 2005.

    Guess I expected too much from Catherine Coulter. I made it through 60% of the book only because of the author's reputation and the fact that my patience has increased with age. As I turned the pages, I just kept finding myself shaking my head. The plot is forced. Relationships don't develop; they just change from one paragraph to the next for no reason. The FBI agents are more like Keystone Cops than professional crime solvers. The dialogue is clumsy and redundant. And there are so many good mysteries to read that I just couldn't waste any more time hoping that this one would miraculously get better.

    Simultaneous stories, so well written, abound in this excellent book. All law enforcement must handle multiple cases at once, as we have all been made aware. Ms. Counter is definitely a master at weaving several together and holding her readers spellbound and wanting more!

    This book didn't succeed in any genre: "romance", cop drama, thriller or sci-fi. What the "magic" ring had to do with the plot was inexplicable; the contrived love connection between the two FBI agents was clumsy at best, and the super-human skills exhibited by all after being shot were truly over the top. No more in this series for me.

    I really enjoyed this book. Not much of a surprise considering how many paperbacks of hers I have read. I love the plots and following the same characters from book to book. I will be back on Amazon seeing which of her books I want to read next!!

    I just can not get enough of Catherine Coulter's FBI series. So I won't give away the book, but if you love her read her. If you've not heard of her you need to go to her first FBI series and read about the very characters and their abilities to be such good FBI agents. But, don't be surprised if you can not turn the page fast enough because Coulter will never let you down on a good read!Another splendid thing is, she keeps the characters going from one book to the other and is able to work in characters every chance she gets from her other books to keep the story line tight-knit family like FBI agents. The agents are not only good but her villians are very devious and can curl your hair with some of the things they pull in each story. What I call and end of the chair thriller, as you don't know whether to put it down and walk around til your heart calms down or just keep on reading and hope you don't drop your book or kindle. LOVE IT!

    Each character is in sharp focus and believable. Their actions are well timed and synchronized. Insight of a killers mind is frightening and essential to success on solving the murders and protecting lives.

  • By Book Lover on September 28, 2017

    The story includes an implausible sub-plot that seems unnecessary and detracts from the main storyline. The main characters did not get much development, I think because they have appeared in earlier books. Without having read the earlier books, it created a gap in the overall effectiveness of the story.
