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.

I'M DONE

I promised myself not to try any more of the Brit in the FBI series after the last dumb, Indiana Jones esque volcano book I suffered through, but I was short on listening material and bit. Try as I might I couldn't get past the two hour mark. The premise. The performance. The lack of reality. Attempts to twist the plot so much it just twists all over itself. I'm returning this one.

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.

A bit dark for my taste

I have tried 3 times to read this through, but always end up skipping over dark parts. As always with this series, narration was wonderful.
I finally read it all the way through. It was actually pretty good, though not as good as the other books in this series.

What happened??

I usually really enjoy Coulter’s books, including this series... which tends to be a bit sci-fi like. However this book was just ridiculous and hard to get through or listen to. Since other reviews say book 7 gets back on track... I’ll give it a try. But I recommend just skipping this hot mess.

Just for Brits

Much of the banter and subtle references that the story relies on will only be caught or understood by the Brits.
I gave up about a third of the way through.
The pace is also too slow for me. Maybe the story had an interesting line, but it could not keep my attention long enough to get to that part.

Again, predictable!

Same unbelievable scenarios that the stories characters miraculously escape certain death in a bizzaro world. The first 3 books were at least better balanced.

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.

Saving the world again!

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