Publisher's Summary

Seven-year-old Autumn Backman has a gift: she can communicate telepathically with others. Not everyone, mind you, but with a select few with whom she shares a special kinship. When Autumn and her mother, Joanna, take her father's ashes to be buried in the family plot in Brickers Bowl, Georgia, she witnesses a horrifying sight: her grandmother and two uncles, burying a pile of dead bodies in the middle of the night.

They head to Titusville, Virginia to seek the help of an old family friend, but Autumn senses they need assistance on a grand scale. Using her telepathic powers, Autumn calls a man she'd only seen on TV: FBI Agent Dillon Savich. But before Savich and his wife and partner, Agent Lacey Sherlock, can get on-scene, Autumn and Joanna flee, fearing the retribution of her Uncle Blessed.

A huge manhunt ensues, with Titusville Sheriff Ethan Merriweather racing to reach the girl before Blessed can get his hands on her. Blessed's got big things planned for Autumn and her gift, and he'll stop at nothing to force her into his growing army of exploited children. Savich, Sherlock, and Merriweather face their most elusive foes to keep Autumn out of harm's way - before it's too late.

Listen to another FBI Thriller.

    "Great Ride."

    What a great story. This book takes you on quite a journey. Twists and turns abound. I love Catherine Coulter's books.

    "Too something"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. Books are wonderful and I appreciate those that can write. It is a talent I do not have and I never want to appear to judge something I cannot do myself. I just didn't enjoy this book as much as others in the series so I apologize in advance if my disappointment makes my review a little harsh.


    What was most disappointing about Catherine Coulter’s story?

    The story line was very complicated and confusing. There are too many undeveloped ideas very loosely woven together to try to make them fit into this FBI series of books. It didn't work. The multitude of twists and turns in this book didn't make it interesting, it made it tedious.


    Did Paul Costanzo and Renee Raudman do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes. These two performers did excellent work.


    Do you think KnockOut needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. I didn't enjoy the story in this book. I loved the FBI series in the beginning but this book was not as good.

    "I should have heeded the warnings..."
    What would have made KnockOut better?

    Listening to the whining voice of the female characters was simply torture. Also, the storyline wasn't that great either. Many times, I nearly stopped the book and returned it.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I disliked Renee Raudman's entire performance. I nearly stopped the book because of it.


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

    Near the end when Autumn mentally reached across the distance to get Victor.....There were many more, but that one took the cake.

    "worried but wrong"

    This was my husband's choice. I couldn't imagine listening to the same story that long. Boy was I wrong. That was the fastest trip across four states I've ever had. The voices were incredible. The characters have grown as they would have in real life. But they haven't lost a thing.

    I've been an Audible addict since 2001. I like fantasy, intrigue, detective mysteries, love stories (not soft porn), and books with a Christian theme (and yes I know some don't think that fits with my love of fantasy). Since my husband retired I have less time to listen, but I always get through at least 4 books a month! I love to stock up during sales!!!

    "waste of money"

    The story line is lame and predictable and the writing amateurish. Don't waste your time or money on this one.

    "Oh...what a good book"

    I enjoyed listening to this book. The readers were just great with the variations used for each character. The author's writing was wonderful. I couldn't wait to hear the ending. Of course, you'll know that the "bad" characters didn't totally win in the end, but what an exciting story.

    "Coulter "Knocks Out" another hit"

    As usual, Catherine Coulter has written another great FBI thriller. I can't wait for the next one in the series.

    "talk about jump the shark"

    I started listening to this series because I ran out of my top 3 authors, Vince Flynn, Nelson DeMille and David Baldacci. Then ran out of my second tier authors of Michael Connelly, and Stephen Cannell. I had high hopes for the series and was all ready to put her in a solid category of third tier along with Lee Childs and John Sandford but this last book was really bad.

    A few books back she had the hero seeing and hearing a ghost which was weird but I plowed on to this last published book in the series. Now I am sorry I wasted my time.

    This last book was so far fetched she just jumped the shark. If she is going to write sci fi fine but don’t label it as a FBI series.

    And what is the deal with changing readers? Out of the 13 books she had 9 different readers, as always Dick Hill was great but the others left a lot to be desired.

    I do not know if MS Coulter is a feminist of not but women readers do not normally do a good job of sounding like a man.

    Skip this series so you do not disappoint yourself.
