Friends and Family


Backfire: An FBI Thriller

Written by Catherine Coulter

 Published by Penguin Books Australia

Pub Date: Jan 2 2013   


Judge Ramsey Hunt, longtime friend to FBI agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich, begins the murder trial of Clive and Cindy Cahill only to have federal prosecutor Mickey Rourke, and then he goes missing and Judge Hunt gets shot in the back.   Savich and Sherlock race to San Francisco to answer the questions: Why would anyone shoot the judge? When they discover one answer, more questions arise until Savich and Sherlock face the final shock.


The synopsis pretty much tells the entire story of the book. I like Ms. Coulter’s books and I have read several of them.  However, this book just seemed to be mostly about the personal lives of Hunt, Sherlock and Dillon. Not that I did not enjoy hearing about their children, because it seemed as if they were getting their personal lives together.  It was very nice.  There is a lot of action, the US Marshalls make a great appearance and Ms. Coulter provides an insight into what they do and how they do their job.
