Bombshell: An FBI Thriller, Book 17

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?

Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Not the best FBI Thriller"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Different narrators


    Would you be willing to try another book from Catherine Coulter? Why or why not?

    Yes but not an audio book read by Rene Raudman and Paul Constanzo


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    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


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Bombshell?

    none were memorably bad or memorably good

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better narrators!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Catherine Coulter again?

    If she had better narrators. I've always read her books, love the FBI ones. This was the worst for me on all levels.


    What didn’t you like about Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ’s performance?

    Their lack of acting. The performance was stiff and boring.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Bombshell?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Better story line.

    Not so hot

    No

    Story
    "Bomb Shell bombed out as far as I am concerned."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    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.


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

    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(


    Any additional comments?

    I want my money back.

    "Not my Favorite!"

    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.

    "Excellent Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It is so well written. I have read others and have gotten to know the main characters. The narrators bring the story alive.


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

    Yes. Multiple stories and the mystery of who did what.


    What does Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Excellent. I love the books and the fact that Renee and Paul have narrated so many of them. I love there voice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Yes but it would be hard. I could see that as a movie


    Any additional comments?

    Keep up writing the FBI series.

    "NOT ENOUGH INFLECTION!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The narrators are too whispered that the story becomes lost ...as a driver, they tire the listener out rather than stimulate.

    Story
    "The worst Narration I have every Heard."
    What did you like best about Bombshell? What did you like least?

    Best - Story, but hard to follow because I kept dropping off because of the poor Narration.

    Worst - The worst Narration I have every Heard. If I wanted to listen to a mono-tone I would have returned to High School History Class.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ?

    Nearly anyone else. Some one with felling and excitement in their voices.


    Did Bombshell inspire you to do anything?

    Restart each chapter. Needed to because ..... well see above.
