The number-one New York Times best-selling author is back with an electrifying new entry in the FBI series featuring Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock.
FBI Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith, last seen in Backfire, has been recruited by Dillon Savich to join his unit in Washington, D.C. Savich sees something special in Hammersmith, an almost preternatural instinct for tracking criminals. While on his way to D.C., Hammersmith plans to visit his sister, Delsey, a student at Stanislaus School of Music in Maestro, Virginia. Before he arrives, he gets a phone call that Delsey has been found naked and unconscious, lying in a pool of blood, after a wild party. The blood isn’t hers - so to whom does it belong? Griffin must protect Delsey, but from whom?
Meanwhile, back in D.C., FBI Agents Savich and Sherlock have their hands full when the grandson of a former Federal Reserve Bank chairman is found murdered, every bone in his body broken, his corpse frozen at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial. Was it revenge against his grandfather for the banking crisis, or something more insidious and personal?
It’s a bitter winter, and in the endless cold, evil lurks.

The storyline is typical of the author...not very deep...you need not think too much about what's going on. Unfortunately, Paul Costanzo is a rather bad narrator and Renee Raudman isn't much better. (We get spoiled by the really good narrators.)
The Narration was so distracting, I had a very difficult time following the story. If the Narrator is a professional, why would he be so dull, so choppy and do such a bad job adapting his voice to the male characters??
I would probably need to read the book first - to see if I enjoy the story.
HELP! My ears are protesting!!
It is hard to get past the poor narration. It changes the whole timber of the book.
Jim Meskimen and Deanne Hurst. Actually I have been happy with all the narrators up until this one.
The narration can make or break a book
I've loved all Coulters previous FBI books, but the narration is so bad in this one I put it down after a half hour. I'll wait for it to be available through the library.
I see the same team has done some of the others, but they must have been the ones I read in print.
This team sounds like amateurs reading to an elementary school class and I will not buy another book with these narrators.
Story line was pretty good though expected. Narration was too precise, no character, no emotion.
Paul Costanza did an excellent job as one of the narrators but Renee Raudmans voice was very annoying because she has a hissing sound to her "S's" I would have preferred if Mr. Costanza had read the entire book.
If Ms. Raudman would stop hissing, I would be happy to listen to both of them. This problem was especially obvious when the consonant "S' was at the end of a word.
Because the male narration was so awful, this was a book I would have preferred to read.
The book yes, but I would never recommend the audiobook. The male narration was stiff and unnatural, more like reading.
The male narration was so bad I will avoid books narrated by him in the future.
This was the first time listening to a story with both male and female narration.
This book was comparable to other stories in the author's FBI series though I found it to be more detective work than thriller, there was not enough built up suspense to go with the action.
This was the first time listening to either of these narrators. I liked the smooth transition between the male/female points of view and characters but I did feel that there was a lack of emotion in the performances.
I really liked how Anna had to save her cat before she ran and the scene in front of Miss Lily's club between her and Savich was quite amusing.
