The newest entry in the sizzling international thriller series featuring Nicholas Drummond, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter.
Freshly minted FBI agent Nicholas Drummond is barely out of his Quantico training when he and his partner, Mike Caine, are called to investigate a stabbing on Wall Street.
Their investigation, however, yields more questions than answers. It quickly becomes clear that the victim, John Pearce, was more than the naval historian and antiquities dealer he appeared to be. What Drummond doesn’t know is that buying and selling rare books was Pearce’s cover, and that he had devoted his life to discovering the whereabouts of a missing World War I U-boat concealing a stash of gold bullion, and an unexpected surprise that only raises more questions. When Drummond and Caine find both of Pearce’s adult children have disappeared, the case assumes a new sense of urgency. The FBI agents know their best lead lies in the victim’s cryptic final words— - "The key is in the lock." But what key? What lock?
The search for Adam and Sophia Pearce takes them on an international manhunt, which threatens to run them afoul of an eccentric billionaire industrialist with his own plans not only for the lost gold, but the creation of a weapon unlike anything the world has ever seen.

Yes, I would. I really enjoyed this book which integrated action, dialogue, intrigue, historical information, and humor. Narrators were great!
Book 1 flowed directly into Book 2 with more than just storyline. It continued with the same humor and drama. I enjoy the books of Catherine Coulter and find similarities with those of David Baldacci. There's substance to their entertaining and thoughtful books.
They are always fantastic. Two of my favorites.
I definitely chuckled several times. The wit and humor were integrated into the story very well and performed by the narrators expertly. You could actually hear the interchanges among the characters as if you were there.
I hope that this progresses into a multi-book series.
I like Catherine Coulter's books fine, but this one did not live up to her previous ones.
Andrews was great, but the female was ANNOYING. I spent the first two hours trying to figure out if you had a real lisp or it was affectation.
The dialogue was so completely cheesy and unbelievable. The story was not bad, but I expected much better from Coulter.
More suspense; more in depth characters and emotion
It was okay
None I just would expand their emotions
Perhaps, but they will need less cardboard characterizations in the book.
The main villain was one dimensional and the whole gratuitous S&M side of him was a bore.
I have and they did an excellent job with a story and characters that could have been stronger.
This book had a lot of potential that never really developed. The characters are interesting but were portrayed as stereotypes which wasn't necessary. The story was interesting but because the characters were so predictable the story became rather predictable and uninteresting.
Just not up to the standards that I have come to expect from Catherine Coulter.
It was tough to get all the way through.
Cathy Coulter has done it again. She gives him something to look forward to with aventure, intrigue, and just right out fun . If anyone want a good book this is one to get, and thank you again Mrs. Coulter, and I look forward to every one of your books.
These well developed characters take you on a sliding board that twists and turns like an amusement park ride. The narrators are wonderful in portraying the infinite number of characters from many places with accents that span the world. All in all a satisfying listen.
