Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author is back with an electrifying new entry in the FBI series featuring Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock.

FBI Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith, last seen in Backfire, has been recruited by Dillon Savich to join his unit in Washington, D.C. Savich sees something special in Hammersmith, an almost preternatural instinct for tracking criminals. While on his way to D.C., Hammersmith plans to visit his sister, Delsey, a student at Stanislaus School of Music in Maestro, Virginia. Before he arrives, he gets a phone call that Delsey has been found naked and unconscious, lying in a pool of blood, after a wild party. The blood isn’t hers - so to whom does it belong? Griffin must protect Delsey, but from whom?

Meanwhile, back in D.C., FBI Agents Savich and Sherlock have their hands full when the grandson of a former Federal Reserve Bank chairman is found murdered, every bone in his body broken, his corpse frozen at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial. Was it revenge against his grandfather for the banking crisis, or something more insidious and personal?

It’s a bitter winter, and in the endless cold, evil lurks.

Very good narration and story

The story and narration are very good, but there are a lot of characters in this book to follow. Plus there is a lot of flipping between the 2 stories. So 4 stars instead of 5. I love this FBI series though and always enjoy the books. Very entertaining!

Great Story

The Male Reader accentuated the last syllable of every sentence. ..most disconcerning otherwise, the story was great. It held my interest throughout.

Enjoyable detecctive story...

What made the experience of listening to Bombshell the most enjoyable?

This was the first time listening to a story with both male and female narration.

What other book might you compare Bombshell to and why?

This book was comparable to other stories in the author's FBI series though I found it to be more detective work than thriller, there was not enough built up suspense to go with the action.

Have you listened to any of Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was the first time listening to either of these narrators. I liked the smooth transition between the male/female points of view and characters but I did feel that there was a lack of emotion in the performances.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I really liked how Anna had to save her cat before she ran and the scene in front of Miss Lily's club between her and Savich was quite amusing.

Poor Narration

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narration

If you’ve listened to books by Catherine Coulter before, how does this one compare?

It is hard to get past the poor narration. It changes the whole timber of the book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ?

Jim Meskimen and Deanne Hurst. Actually I have been happy with all the narrators up until this one.

Any additional comments?

The narration can make or break a book

Typical Catherine Coulter

The storyline is typical of the author...not very deep...you need not think too much about what's going on. Unfortunately, Paul Costanzo is a rather bad narrator and Renee Raudman isn't much better. (We get spoiled by the really good narrators.)

Narration so bad I wish I'd bought print version

I've loved all Coulters previous FBI books, but the narration is so bad in this one I put it down after a half hour. I'll wait for it to be available through the library.
I see the same team has done some of the others, but they must have been the ones I read in print.
This team sounds like amateurs reading to an elementary school class and I will not buy another book with these narrators.
