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)

    "Too much detail, not enough flow"

    I am in the middle of this 'read' and keep skipping ahead, frankly I find it embarrassing it is so bad. It is poorly written, with too much detail of insignificant things. Plus I find it hard to believe that FBI characters (or anyone) would act this way.

    The writer also jumps into new sections of the book, so it takes a minute to clue into what is happening. No flow and lack of interest.

    I really can't wait for this book to be over.

    "Fast Paced "run-of-the-mill" Cop Story"

    In short. A totally average book I'd give a C as a teacher.
    It isn't a BAD book, it's just NOT a very good book. The editor was very judicious that, a few times I thought I'd gotten the abridged version as the scene changed so quickly I thought I'd missed something. But at two files and 12 hours I'm certain I got the whole book.
    There's no new angle here, no quirky detective with a standard set of possible other killers to keep you wondering. But for a book titled The Maze I'd expect far more twists and turns (plot wise or even in and yes, pun intended with regard to this killer's M.O.)
    It has a run-of-the-mill romance.
    Don't let the S.F. picture for a setting fool you, most the story could take place anywhere.
    S.F. and ALL its charms, ("The Paris of America") having lived just south for the very romantic S.F. for 1/3 of my life. (At least she doesn't call it "Frisco", a real no-no for the locals). But, there's nary a single feature of S.F. mentioned (The notorious Alcatraz prison island does get a line.). At the price I bought it, (marked way down to $4.95) it was a bargain.
    This book is NOT worth an entire credit or significant bucks, not with SO MANY quality thrillers out there The Maze is simple escapist reading, I'd name some "PRO" authors but that's against the rules I think.
    One slight GOOD and unique note on the audio production. The sound engineer made phone calls SOUND "phone callish" with a slightly "tinny" quality. It added some realism and clarified easily who was the distant one and while the local voice was normal.
    Bottom Line: If you want QUALITY buy the big names (male or female writers) which, in comparison this writing pales.

    "Not worth it"

    Very long, rambling and somewhat preposterous mystery. The reader frequently talks too rapidly as well. Not worth the time.

    "poor reading"

    Again I have been disappointed by the reader in this book. I hope better narrators are selected for Catherine Coulter's future audio books.

    "Terrific"

    This is the 2nd book of hers that I have listened to and I have enjoyed both stories including the narration.

    "Intrigue along with Sherlock & Savich--bravo!"
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I enjoyed getting to know Sherlock. There are many facets to her character--fear, courage, talent, determination, risk taker. I laughed when she met Savich during a training exercise. She took him down. He couldn't forget about it.

    "Poor reader but good story"
    Would you listen to The Maze again? Why?

    No, the reader does not differentiate her voice among the characters. It was hard to follow at times and know who was talking.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Maze?

    The revelation of the details of Belinda's murder.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Susan Ericksen?

    NO


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

    Cannot match the word pictures drawn by the author.


    Any additional comments?

    We like this author's stories and the multiple story lines. She is very good at inciting one's emotions and drawing pictures with words. She deserves a better reader to give more life to her characters.

    "Decent thriller, keeps you interested."

    The narrator sounded robotic at times but the story itself was good. Serial killers are always interesting to hear about and this story has plenty of them.
