Publisher's Summary

Insidious is the twentieth thriller in #1 New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter's FBI series. FBI agents Savich and Sherlock must discover who is trying to murder eighty-six-year-old Venus Rasmussen, a powerful, wealthy society icon. They soon find out that the danger may be closer than expected.

Venus Rasmussen, a powerful eighty-six-year-old woman who still runs Rasmussen Industries, an international conglomerate, believes someone is poisoning her. After Savich and Sherlock visit with her, someone attempts to shoot her in broad daylight. Who's trying to kill her and why? A member of her rapacious family, or her grandson who's been missing for ten years and suddenly reappears? Savich and Sherlock must peel away the layers to uncover the incredible truth about who would target Venus.

Meanwhile, Special Agent Cam Wittier leaves Washington for Los Angeles to work with local Detective Daniel Montoya to lead the hunt for the Starlet Slasher, a serial killer who has cut the throats of five young actresses. When a sixth young actress is murdered, Cam comes to realize the truth might be closer than she'd ever want to believe.

With breakneck speed and unexpected twists and turns, Coulter's Insidious will leave you breathless until the shocking conclusion.

    "Not the Same Formula"

    Just a heads up for anyone who has read the previous nineteen books in this series, Coulter switches it up in Insidious. Don't expect romance to be a main plot point or even a subplot. It doesn't exist. This time around it's pure suspense. It's very convoluted - still not sure if I buy it - kind of suspense, but it definitely shouldn't be categorized as a romance. Coulter gives us two different cases: a serial killer on the west coast being investigated by a female FBI agent named Cam and a local cop named Daniel. Again, don't expect any romance between these two. Sherlock and Savich are in D.C. trying to find out who's been trying to kill a sweet little old lady that Savich knows. Both stories get about equal time and kind of wish they would have been split in to two separate novellas. I'd really start to get interested in what was happening with one case only to have to switch to the other on the next page. The cases do not intersect at all, so I'm not quite sure why the book was set up this way.

    "Somewhat disappointed"

    I've read every book in this series and have loved them. I eagerly await a new release and devour it immediately. However, I felt this release was not nearly as exciting and the 2 separate story lines didn't work. The one with Savich and Sherlock was almost ridiculous in its simplicity and predictability. The other storyline was predictable, with very few twists and turns I have become accustomed to.

    "Redo?"

    I'm wondering if the story is a redo of a previous story? Or storyline? Other than than that it was in typical fashion some of the plot was predictable others was just short of predicted so all in all an ok book.

    "Huge disappointment based on other Coulter novels"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Two plots would have been better with two novellas. Most disappointing, however, was th glacial pace, filled with tedious detail that did nothing to improve the story. What happened to the action and tension in the Nicholas Drummond series? The characters in Insidious are trite and their dialogue tedious and boring. I am going to return his book in favor of another. In addition, the multiplicity of characters makes it very difficult to create plausible voices. MacLeod Andrews is brilliant and always a breath away from launching into Nicholas Drummond whereas Renee Raudman sounds just like the shrill female characters in two other Savitch mysteries. I'll give Coulter another try when she brings back Drummond and his partner.


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

    See above comments


    Would you be willing to try another one of Renee Raudman and MacLeod Andrews ’s performances?

    Hav listened to several already


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Colossal disappointment

    "Too busy"

    I have enjoyed this series over the years. This one contained everything but the kitchen sink. Long dialogues were boring. Discussion of a character's sexual orientation miserably out of touch to the point of being offensive, plot lines transparent in the attempt to make them opaque. Overall very disappointing.
