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 narration is so blasé. No personality at all.
Not the Audio version
Use better Narrators. Get into character, change the voices a bit. It's really hard to tell who is talking since the male voice never changes from on male character to another. Same with the female voices, she is weak in all characters.
Yes but not an audio book read by Rene Raudman and Paul Constanzo
They did not seem to be enjoying the story - the changes between male and female were often arbitrary and they made no effort to get into character = it sounded as though they may have phoned it in from different cities
none were memorably bad or memorably good
If she had better narrators. I've always read her books, love the FBI ones. This was the worst for me on all levels.
Their lack of acting. The performance was stiff and boring.
Cant say. I'm going to have to buy the book and read it. The audio version is so awful that I couldn't get into the plot or characters.
Wow! I've been a fan of CC for years and I just hope it was not her who hired the narrators for Bomb Shell. Truly the reading was boring.
Yes I would. I have heard all her books and have liked them but not so much this one. Considered listening to it again as I do sometimes but don't think so.
Better story line.
Not so hot
This was the most disappointing book so far.
Love all mysteries!
The story keep pulling me in.
The cast of characters
The body drop scene at Lincoln's monument
Thrilling Fast-paced Satisfying
The obvious did not turn out to be the solution
Sherlock always my favorite
No extreme reactions but as always fulfilled
Never enough books like these
The narration was stilted, and generally lackluster. The monotonous droning and largely uninspired story line bored me causing me to lose track of the story line and zone out.
This is the first time I have ever "read" a novel by Catherine Coulter, and I don't believe I will again. The story line was unsophisticated, predictable, and generally a yawn. The poor narration didn’t help either. :0(
I want my money back.
I LOVE these books, I wait all year for them to come out and this one left me flat. I'm not sure why, maybe it was the back and forth between 2 different cases and the new characters, i'm not sure, but it was not my favorite Catherine Coulter, I ended up disappointed. I feel really bad saying that. I love Savich & Sherlock, love the interpersonal relationships and this one didn't have it for me. Hopefully the next one will be back up to parr.
It is so well written. I have read others and have gotten to know the main characters. The narrators bring the story alive.
Yes. Multiple stories and the mystery of who did what.
Excellent. I love the books and the fact that Renee and Paul have narrated so many of them. I love there voice.
Yes but it would be hard. I could see that as a movie
Keep up writing the FBI series.
The narrators are too whispered that the story becomes lost ...as a driver, they tire the listener out rather than stimulate.
