Publisher's Summary

Lacey Sherlock's life is forever changed when her older sister's body is discovered in an abandoned warehouse. She is the fourth victim of the String Killer, the name given by the media to a murderer who leads his victims into a maze with a ball of twine.

Seven years after Belinda's death, Lacey, now an FBI agent, is paired up with computer whiz Dillon Savich, who has developed a predictive program to aid in the apprehension of serial killers.

When the String Killer strikes again, Lacey spots his handiwork, resulting in his capture. The suspect confesses, but maintains that he did not kill Belinda. No sooner does Lacey confirm his innocence of that crime than an attempt is made on her life.

Suspecting her attacker is the same person who murdered her sister, Lacey and Dillon know they must solve the mystery - before they become the killer's next victims.

Listen to another FBI Thriller.

What the Critics Say

"Full of karate, pistol-whipping, and other malevolent mayhem, Catherine Coulter's The Maze could be described as a junior-varsity version of Silence of the Lambs."
"Susan Eriksen's reading is spirited and emotive with effective character vocalizations." (Library Journal)

    "the book was a maze"
    Would you try another book from Catherine Coulter and/or Susan Ericksen?

    Yes I would try another book and Catherine Coulter just to see if her writing changes


    Has The Maze turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Susan Ericksen?

    Yes


    Did The Maze inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The book was confusing . It had too many things going on at the same time . It seemed that the author started a new scene without completing the others. There were a lot of times in reading the book that I became confused . The storyline was just unrealistic . I would have liked to seen the relationship of Sherlock and Savage detailed more

    "Not the best work"

    I usually look forward to listening to Susan Ericson. However, in this book she seemed either bored or inexperienced. her normally phenomenal range of voices and animation was somehow lost in this recording.
    The book itself left a little to be desired.

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

    Something to pass the time on a long drive, but this book so similar to others I've read in the series that I felt it lacked originality. Definitely a theme in CC's books to have an abusive male father-figure. A little rote.

    Story
    "Not Exactly A-Maze-ing!"
    Where does The Maze rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book would ranks somewhere in the lower middle. I have really enjoyed this character in many of Ms Coutler's later books but for some reason I thought the plot was week.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I think this book was early in the series. So I feel Ms Coutler had not really developed her style fully for this character. If I read it when it first came out I think I would have a much higher opinion of it. In her later books these character are awesome and the plots are strong.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed her performance. He is an excellent narrator. I haven't listen to her except in this series.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No I did not have an extreme reaction. Thought the story line dragged a bit.

    "I was rolling my eyes."
    What was most disappointing about Catherine Coulter’s story?

    I love a good mystery - this wasn't one. It was more romance novel than FBI thriller. I found myself rolling my eyes and muttering, "Really?" Way too sappy for me.

    "I'd pass on this one"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This book kept me both listening and wondering why I was still listening. The story was just intriguing enough that I stuck with it, but still found myself saying "oh please, really?, c'mon". I agree with others, WAY too many other good books out there to spend time (and money) on this one.

    Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    "Love Coulter's FBI series"

    I loved the book, it gave me some answers since I had been listening to the series out of order.

    A woman's voice doing Savage? NO, it doesn't work for me! I find it easier to listen to a man doing a woman's voice. There are only a few female narrators that can carry off the part of a strong male character. This narrator wasn't one of them.
