Publisher's Summary

Baffled by a seemingly supernatural connection to his critically injured sister, an FBI special agent heads to the Oregon coast in search of a more plausible explanation for his sudden ESP, only to discover more puzzling mysteries.

FBI agent Ford MacDougal - "Mac" - is recovering from a terrorist car bombing when his sister appears to purposely drive her Porsche off an Oregon cliff. Curiously, Mac felt as if he were in the car with her as she sailed toward the sea, even though he was really in a hospital bed on the other side of the country.

By the time Mac arrives in Portland, his sister - Dr. Jilly Bartlett, a medical researcher - has come out of the coma she's been in for four days. But after a few scant hours with her brother, Jilly vanishes without a trace. In searching for her, Mac gets a different story from everyone he encounters. When the local sheriff enlists Mac's aid in a puzzling murder of an elderly resident, Mac little suspects that the case connects to his sister's disappearance. FBI agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich (last seen in The Target) join Mac to ride shotgun, only to find their search leading from a small town on the Oregon coast to the rain forests of Costa Rica. Together, they must escape relentless pursuers as well as the hostile jungle itself before discovering the true nature of the evil at The Edge.

It was ok...

I liked the book but the narrator made it feel like a cheesy crime novel with the voices; normally I'm a big fan of it but his female voices were horrid and that SQUAK! made it hard to follow, I found I was going back often just to catch what was said.

Overall content was good, story has some holes but I'm willing to try the next book just to see.

Disappointing. Disappointing. Very Disappointing

What disappointed you about The Edge?

The story line was at times interesting if not Illogical and even preposterous but the innappropriate dialogue between characters was so childish it was painful . I had the distinct feeling I was reading a novel written by a 8 grader. The narration was most annoying making the overall experience too much to endure. Sorry, but this one is not worth further discussion.

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

If the Edge is typical of Catherine Coulter's writing, it will be my last read.

Horrid narration!

The narrator was horrible with the female voices. He made the characters, who should have been strong women based on their professions, sound simpering and weak and in need of saving. In fact some of this was the fault of the author, but the narrator made it even worse.

Barely Able to Listen

Basic concept was good, but the dialogue could have been better written by a 12 year old. Corny and trite!

enjoyed the story just not the performance

due to the narrator's unfortunate habit of attempting women's voices the book came across as a slapstick comedy. his women's voices came across as sounding like a cartoon.

unbelievable

I like Catherine Coulter's FBI series, but this story went from okay, to bad, to worse, to ridiculous.

Books are predictable, but this one's plot was bad

All of her books are the same. It's amazing that everyone gets married 2 days after they meet. This one was pretty bad. The first 3 were ok...entertaining. This one made me laugh several times because the plot was just so stupid. The narrator was good. Going to give one more a try. Hoping this one was just a fluke. Seriously, it's really bad.

Worst book ever

This book was so bad. The story jumped all over the place and didn’t make sense. Plus the main character was super creepy. The worst by far was the narrator. He was awful. I will never get another book that he narrated again.

Story line was good. Some of the narration sounded like Detective Joe Friday from Dragnet though.
