Publisher's Summary

A long weekend in the Poconos is cut short when Sherlock and Savich are helicoptered back to Washington to lead the investigation into the brutal murder of a Supreme Court justice.

Savich allows Callie Markham, an investigative reporter for The Washington Post, to partner with local Metro Police liaison Ben Raven since she's got the inside track--she's the stepdaughter of the murdered justice. Despite Detective Raven's unwillingness to have a civilian along, Callie Markham ends up riding shotgun to help look for her stepfather's murderer.

Within the next 24 hours, a Supreme Court law clerk is found murdered, the M.O. the same.

Savich learns he must also solve a 30-year-old crime after a psychic encounter with the murder victim, Samantha Barrister, who suddenly appears in front of his car and hysterically pleads for his help. Savich and Sherlock discover that at the time of her death, Samantha had a six-year-old son who disappeared as a teenager. Savich is convinced the missing boy is the key.

In Blowout, Sherlock and Savich are faced with two of the most baffling and shocking cases of their careers.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Hokey! Pathetic!"

    I can't believe I listened to the entire novel. This is the worst Savage and Sherlock novel. Catherine Coulter can and has written more credible novels. The narration was fine.

    Story
    "I Don't Understand"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I don't understand why she insists on getting people married after a week of knowing each other. The books have become predictable and the narrator makes the female characters sound like helpless women even though they are written to be strong.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    More twists and less predictable


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Changed the voices of the female characters to be a bit stronger and sound smarter.

    "Disappointing"
    Would you try another book from Catherine Coulter and/or Sandra Burr?

    I'll think twice before I purchase another Coulter book/I've enjoyed Sandra Burr as a narrator in many other books.


    What could Catherine Coulter have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    There was to much useless info mixed in to the story, my mind kept wandering. It needed more action/suspense.


    Did Sandra Burr do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She did alright, I've heard her do better.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    It took 3 attempts and I had to force myself to finish this book.

    "FBI Thriller fan since first book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Blowout to be better than the print version?

    Only did audio version


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes it is well written with alot of twist.


    What aspect of Sandra Burr’s performance would you have changed?

    I did not like the way she portrayed character voices at all took away from story line was distracting .


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really kind of slow pace.

    "Love the FBI series"

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. The only thing is that I had to skip ahead 2 or 3 books because it wasn't available. All in all a good listen.

    "Female reader was sub-par"

    Female reader was sub-par, not her best storyline. It was ok, and now I know why it was in the discount section.
