A thriller, a mystery, a ghost story!
Received my copy of "Blow Out" Yesterday and finished it late last night (or should I say early this morning?). This is another great Dillion and Sherlock Savitch thriller. I won't rehash the plot because Ms. Klaussner has already done that quite well (maybe too well???) beware of spoilers in her review. This book is a great mystery thriller that also is a bit of a ghost story. Ms. Coulter gives us plenty of twists and turns many of which you do not see comming. I enjoy how the Savitich's relationship, very romantic, and also the way they interact with their son. This is not to say that there is not plenty of action because there is! All in all a great read.
Not one of her better books
I have read all of Catherine's FBI thrillers and have to say this is not one of her better writings. She entwines two tales in one story that have nothing remotely to do with each other and it just kind of leaves you mixed up. Wondering when she was going to touch on the other story she was trying to tell. It seemed to drag on and on...and that is one quality in book that I do not enjoy. However I will not stop reading her books. Every other FBI thriller book she has written has been excellent. Every now and then an author has an off time. This was just one of hers. I am sure she will come back strong and kicking.
I love the Sherlock/Savich series, but I had problems with this one. First of all, I felt that a psychic experience was out of place. Sherlock and Savich are professionals; the ghost story line didn't fit in. Secondly, there were a lot of contradictions in the book. For example, I didn't buy that the judge married Callie's mother to get to her. It didn't jive. Callie respected the judge and was intuitive enough to know if he was interested in her or not. There was no evidence that he was.
I, especially, disliked the way things were tied up at the end. The last quarter of the book didn't fit with the first three.
So many of my favorite authors are cranking books out due to publisher induced deadlines. They suffer as a result.
