Publisher's Summary

Special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine take on a ruthless mastermind in the fifth highly anticipated thriller in the New York Times best-selling A Brit in the FBI series.

When several major political figures die mysteriously, officials declare the deaths are from natural causes. Then the German Vice-Chancellor dies on the steps of 10 Downing Street, and a drone is spotted hovering over the scene. The truth becomes clear - these high-profile deaths are well-constructed assassinations, and the Covert Eyes team is tasked to investigate.

With the help of Dr. Isabella Marin, a young expert in the enigmatic Voynich Manuscript and cryptophasia (twin language), Nicholas and Michaela home in on Roman Ardelean, a wealthy cybersecurity genius and a descendant of 15th century Romanian Vlad the Impaler - often romanticized as Dracula. Ardelean believes the Voynich Manuscript will unlock the secret to curing his severely ill twin brother's blood disorder and is willing to murder anyone who gets in his way, including Nicholas and Michaela.

Along with MI5, the Covert Eyes team must race against the clock to find Ardelean before he unleashes a devastating attack on London intended to destroy those he believes betrayed him.

With heart-pounding tension and gripping suspense, New York Times best-selling authors Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison "are really on an amazing roll with their outstanding A Brit in the FBI series" (RT Book Reviews).

Not my cup of tea

Sorry but absolutely hated this book. This is nothing like the Savage series and I found this very hard to follow. Apparently I’m in the minority.

Fast forward frown of a book

I love CC! Love her! Always buy her books. It pains me deeply to give this one a thumbs down. The story was boring and a little too paranormal for my liking. I set the speed on 1.5x and still had to forward the story. I most look forward to catching up with one of my favorite literary couples-Mikayla and Nicholas, but even that fell short. The extent of the romance was he touched her check and references to them being up all night in the bedroom. Wink-wink. Lame. So much potential wasted for what romance readers like me crave, actually NEED, when we wait a year between books. I am left empty on this one and will likely start borrowing instead of buying this series unless it becomes a bit deeper romantically and less deep paranormally.

Saving the world again!

Fun to reconnect with characters who seem like old acquaintances. Plenty of humor and thrills!

Hmmm...

It had its moments, but this was a hard story to get into though I did listen to the whole thing.

My first audible book, loved it

I’m a big fan of Catherine Coulter, always have been, but I wanted a way to read and crochet or crossstich at the same time and this is the perfect way. Also going to be going on a trip with my mom and we have similar tastes in reading so we will audible it.
I just love it.

worst performance on all of Audible

I don't know if the phrase 'chewing the scenery' applies to audible books but Renee Raudman takes emoting to new heights. The boos itself s terrific fun.

Best of series so far

Plenty of action. A little romance- a little more would be nice- and a fun plot. This one involves a hint of magic, evil genius descendants of the historical Vlad Dracula and a modern fleet of militarized drones terrorizing the political leadership.

This might be the end of the series for me.

A couple times while listening to the book I found myself saying “oh come on now“ as whatever had just been said was unbelievable. There are far too many point of view narrator changes in the story. It bounces between Wikipedia, history from 1000 to 1800 to today. Nicholas and Michaela seemed downright silly in the story.

A bit more far fetched than usual

I've been a fan of Catherine Coulter for many years, but it seems that her books are getting more and more far-fetched with each new release, making it harder for me to suspend my disbelief. I listened to the whole book, but at times I had to fast forward through some of the more gory details, and I don't generally have a weak stomach. I like the concept of the Brit in the FBI, and I enjoy the relationship between Nicholas and Mike, but I'm not sure I will rush to use another credit anytime soon.

I gave the performance three stars strictly because of Mr. Andrews' performance, which I thought was exceptional. He is one of my favorite narrators, and probably one of the only reasons I stuck with the book all of the way through. Ms. Raudman, on the other hand, is an good narrator when dialects and accents arent't necessary (i.e., everyone is American), but she needs to work on her British and Scottish accents, as they are practically non-existent, and this is not the first book I've noticed this in.

Quite Riveting

Complicated and scarily believable. Well written and well performed. There were a few dry spots, but the whole plot covered over them well. I especially loved the well acted voices which made the story easy to follow.
