Labyrinth (FBI Thriller #23)
The #1 New York Times bestselling FBI Thriller series returns with another tour de force in which Agent Sherlock risks losing her career—and her sanity—over a case that is more complicated and twisted than any she’s ever encountered. On a dark night, Agent Sherlock is driving along circuitous mountain roads in West Virginia when her car is suddenly T-boned at an intersection. As her car spins out of control, a man’s body slams against her windshield and then—blackness. When she finally comes to, Sherlock has no memory of the accident, nor of the moments that led right up to it. But what she does know is that the man she hit is a local CIA analyst…and now he’s missing. Meanwhile, in the small town of Gaffer’s Ridge, Virginia, Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith has just rescued a kidnapped woman who claims her captor admitted to the murder of three teenage girls. However, the man she accuses is related to the local sheriff and a member of a very powerful family. Special Agent Hammersmith reaches out to Sherlock for help, and they soon realize that the disappearance of the CIA analyst is actually connected to the string of murders. But how?

What a way to open a book!While Dillon helps Sherlock to recover, as she has suffered a memory loss, Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith has just rescued a woman who says she escaped a brutal kidnapper who admitted to killing several other women. When Griffin appeals to Dillon for help, he and Sherlock head to Virginia. Dillon feels this is the only way for Sherlock to heal, and that is to be with him. This proves invaluable, because Sherlock's instincts are spot on and Dillon feels that working might help her to heal.The case involves a missing CIA analyst. What is more is that what draws Griffin to the situation is that he hears screams for help. He cannot explain it, but he is lead to the home of a female reporter and he manages to save her life. This story, like one or two of the others in the series, lends to Dillan and Griffin experiencing a bit of psychic talent. While this is a part of the story that I did not expect, as it is not a tenet of the series, it did not take away from solving the mysterious case.All the while, readers got to see the team working together flawlessly, as well as witnessing the growing love between Dillon and Sherlock. While reading of her losing most of her memory was painful, it was inspiring to watch her begin to heal. This fast-moving story had me riveted from the arresting introduction to the shocking conclusion.Many thanks to Gallery Books and NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

    This starts off with quite a bit of action, plenty of mystery and then a twist with Sherlock that had me instantly drawn into this book. I loved the initial scenes with Dillon and her as well as the problem they are facing, primarily Sherlock.

These two share a common gift that leads them into quite a mystery as well as some paranormal kind of activity. While the writing became stilted at this point, I was invested enough to ignore it.Unfortunately, I had to wade through a lot of characters who had nothing to do with the story, as well as unnecessary information and repetition. Everything began to lag. I set it aside hoping I’d feel it more the next time I picked it up. Nope. Didn’t happen. I began to skim. I skimmed some more. I eventually managed to dig out the nuggets of the story and enjoyed it despite the work I had to put in to do so. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. I read Enigma by this same author and absolutely loved everything about it. I was expecting the same type of writing as well as a wicked twisty plot. There are definitely some twists, but I was exhausted by the time I reached them. I understand that this author is a fan favorite and I’m hundred percent sure my response to this book is entirely a “me” thing. I’m sure her diehard fans are going to love this one. I’m just sorry to say it didn’t work for me.I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book provided by NetGalley and Galley Books.

I have to say that this book re-hooked me into the series. I am so impressed this series has lasted the test of time. I remember when book one: THE COVE came out. Wow, what a journey this has been for the author!Basic premises: Sherlock is involved in a pretty nasty car accident which wipes her memory. As her car spins and she is out of control of the wheel, the vehicle hits a man who is running from two people. He is a CIA analyst and the accident messes him up pretty good. But he runs off and escapes his captors.In the meantime while Sherlock is in the hospital, Savich receives a call from Agent Hammersmith who had rescued a journalist Carson DeSilva from being held captive by a mad man. Strangely enough the sheriff thinks her accusation is ridiculous and refuses to bring in the mad man who is strangely enough his nephew. No charges are filed and instead the sheriff puts Hammersmith and DeSilva in jail and all the evidence of Carson’s capture have disappeared. Carson has a psychic gift as does Hammersmith and Savich. Carson overhears the sheriff’s nephew as he is thinking about the three missing girls in the area. This psychic gift comes in more prominently later in the book.There is a lot going on in this story. Sherlock has amnesia and there is a great dynamic between her and Savich as she not only learns to trust him again but get back her memories in little flashes. Savich and Sherlock assist Hammersmith and there is a great scene where the FBI area chief come in with a bunch of agents in tow all wearing battle gear and storming the sheriff’s office in Gaffer’s Ridge. Classic!The book is segmented in two over-arching storylines: The kidnappings from Gaffer’s Ridge with Hammersmith and DeSilva and the story featuring the CIA analyst and Sherlock’s car accident. It definitely keeps you guessing and entertained until the end.Highly recommended.I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.

She is everything I love in a heroine, smart, badass, beautiful and a redhead! As I've read every FBI Thriller Series book, it has made me feel forever young as Sherlock and I are about the same age, except she's a perpetual thirtysomething instead of a fiftysomething. Oh, to be forever young like Lacey Sherlock and Stephanie Plum! The plot is two pronged and you wonder from the beginning if the two plot lines are going to merge. I'll just leave that little mystery for you to solve on your own. Watching Savach care for Sherlock and strive not to crowd her is always a wonderful thing. His love for her is total and complete and he will do anything he has to in order to protect her. May their romance endure forever. Alas, this is no romantic-suspense, only a great mystery-thriller-suspense, no romance to be found.Now for the plot recap: Sherlock is just driving along in Washington, D.C. and she gets T-boned, leaving her with contusions, a concussion and memory loss. The last thing she remembers is hitting a man while spinning wildly out of control. The man is injured, but manages to disappear. They ID him through his DNA and turns out he's a CIA analyst. Who was he running from and why?Meanwhile, down in Gaffer's Ridge, Virginia, FBI Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith is minding his own business taking a much needed vacation after breaking up with his fiancée and solving a very difficult case when he gets a psychic shout out for help. Dr. Carson DeSilva is being held and threatened when she connects with Griffin and he literally kicks the gun out of the hand of Rafer Bodine. She follows up with a pipe to his head for good measure. When the dust settles, Griffin and Carson are in jail for the assault on Rafer. Seems the Bodine family just about owns the quaint town of Gaffer's Ridge, especially the law.

    Another outstanding installment of the Sherlock/Savich FBI series! Tells the story of an expansive plot to sell ground-breaking technology on the black market interwoven with a bizarre family that controls a small town, perhaps covering up more than one murder. A further layer of Sherlock’s amnesia from a nasty car accident adds dimension to the story. The outcome is a book I couldn’t put down!

Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock, both FBI agents, return as our heroes in Labyrinth.

I have read a few books in the series, but this read very well as a stand alone. Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock, both FBI agents, return as our heroes in Labyrinth. Almost at the start, we are caught by surprise, as Sherlock is in a terrible car accident, having be hit by another car, as well as someone bouncing off her windshield. Savich runs to the hospital worrying about his wife’s condition, and though she was lucky, she now has amnesia from her concussion. She finds some familiar things, but she does not remember her husband, Dillon. While many of the FBI agents close to Dillon and Sherlock stick around concerned about her, another mystery is happening in Virginia.Agent Griffin Hammersmith is on vacation with friends in Gaffer’s Ridge, when he hears a woman screaming. He manages to help her escape, and between himself and the rescued woman, Carson DeSilva, they manage to stop the kidnapper and call for help from the local police. Unfortunately, the police turn things around and put both Griffin and Carson in jail for harming the local resident. Griffin manages to call Dillion for help, and the FBI will come in full force to help Griffin, and try to solve the disappearance of three 16 year old missing girls.When Sherlock is released from the hospital, even if she cant remember a lot, she insists to work with Dillon to help Griffin, and eventually dig deep to find out the missing man (who bounced off her car, and is a CIA Analyst) as well as discover why the CIA is involved in some kind of behind the scenes mystery.With Sherlock at his side, they go first to Virginia to help Griffin, and discover a family that controls the town and police. There is a slight element of psychic attacks, that someone is leashing out at first Sherlock, but Dillion will rescue her. However, this is an important part of the Virginia story, which has some twists and surprises. Griffin and Carson work together to get to the bottom of the missing girls.Dillon and Sherlock return back home to slowly piece together who is the villain at the CIA, and why. What follows is a non-stop exciting and intense adventure with two different cases. I was great to see how despite her amnesia, Sherlock as an agent was masterful, something she did not forget. She worked so well with Dillion and other members of the FBI Team. It was tough for Dillion as she didn’t know him, but slowly their love for each other will be instrumental in her recovery process. Griffin and Carson had their lives on the brink, but the wild ending was so very well done. This is a difficult review to write, as so much happens, especially with two different cases, and to tell too much more would be spoilers.Catherine Coulter once again gives us a fabulous story, with so many different surprises and excitement all the way to the climax. Labyrinth was fast-paced, exciting, with marvelous heroes, who have to delve deep within the CIA resolve the crimes. If you like suspense, mysteries, espionage, especially in the world of CIA/FBI, I wholly suggest you read Labyrinth.BarbThe Reading Cafe

The mind can’t really conceive the depth of such trauma but for those with amnesia, it’s a terrifying reality. FBI Agent Sherlock started out on what she expected to be a normal drive when another automobile struck hers sending her Volvo careening out of control at an intersection, to make matters worse she strikes a man who slams into her windshield, his blood on the glass is one of the last things she perceives before the world falls into darkness. Awakening in a hospital, suffering from a severe concussion, the sight of her husband does not provide the comfort it should because she doesn’t know who he or she is. This reader wondered who the reality was worse for Sherlock or Savitch who had lost the woman he loved. But a little thing like amnesia will not stop these two from finding out what happened and who the man Sherlock unfortunately hit was not to mention helping a friend in trouble. It was interesting how the amnesia was portrayed, one might lose their memories but what is inherent to a person remains and shines through periodically bringing color to the blank canvas they happen to be.There’s something very wrong in the town of Gaffer’s Ridge, Virginia. FBI Agent Hammersmith, in the area on vacation visiting friends, rescues a kidnapped woman with an interesting tale to tell regarding her abductor but local law enforcement doesn’t believe them or that Hammersmith is even FBI. When you accuse the nephew of the local Sheriff and the son of the richest man in town of a crime you have a problem and being thrown in jail is the least of the problem. It’s good to have bad-ass connections, the cavalry that arrives to save Hammersmith, a take no-nonsense woman with a team in full riot gear and loaded submachine guns made for quite an entertaining scene. Hammersmith now has a difficult job ahead of him and finding the truths hidden in this town won’t be as simple as a jailbreak.This author never just provides one storyline to confound the reader, she’s intertwined two intriguing cases that may or may not be connected. The book is aptly titled, it has a devilishly labyrinthine plot that’s shockingly twisted, filled with a depth of complexity that had this reader wondering how the author manages to keep track of it all and she does so superbly. The reader is kept riveted with fast-paced action and suspense, great characters with tangible emotions, the inclusion of moments of entertaining humor, and deceptive mysteries to try and unravel before they are resolved. The unexpected paranormal aspect was intriguing, the villains were decidedly evil yet so human.An advanced reading copy was obtained from the publisher via NetGalley.

I have read the entire series and each time I am thrilled with the results. Once again she gives us quite an opener. Sherlock is on her way to the store when her life gets put on hold in a hurry. She is sideswiped in heavy traffic. Her Volvo begins to spin. Throughout the accident Lacey is bounced around until the airbag explodes almost simultaneously with a body being thrown over the hood of her car. Blood spreads all over the windshield. She could not imagine who it was. His blood was on the window, hers was now dripping down her face. She lost consciousness. Part two, (as all of her scripts have duo plots), finds us in Gaffer’s Ridge, Virginia. Agent Griffin Hammersmith is there to visit his friends Jennie and Aimee Rose. His college friends had opened a restaurant there. He planned to stay at their house for awhile after solving a tough case. The beautiful mountain air is a great place to hike and relax. After lunch he left his car at their house and started to tour the town with the hope of a short walk instead of relenting to the nap his body would prefer. Not long into his walk he heard someone shouting. It seemed the voice wasn’t loud. No one else appeared to notice. As he approached the country home, he heard the voice again, it was urgent this time. He had to see if he could help. When no one answered the door, he used his foot to break in the door. There was a man holding a shotgun at a young woman. She was so grateful he heard her. Griffin did not hesitate and used his talents as an agent to knock the gun away. His response fractured the man’s wrist. The gun dropped to the floor. The woman, Dr. Carson DeSilva, is a journalist in town to interview a famous physicist who was taking solace in a local cabin.Each of the two paths follow different journeys within the book. Both are exciting and typically strange. I will not discuss spoilers, I can only recommend this amazing journey for Savich and Sherlock. It is definitely a great summer read. Head to the beach or on your front porch to enjoy this typically intense Catherine Coulter mystery. If you are new to her work, don’t let that stop you. Labyrinth will be on the shelves July 30, 2019. It is another 5 Star hit. I must thank Simon and Schuster eGalley for allowing me to read this via NetGalley. I very much enjoyed the ride!

Who w Labyrinth – Catherine CoulterI was fortunate to receive this book as an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an objective review.Savich & Sherlock’s newest adventure starts off suddenly, when Sherlock is out running errands, and she is suddenly t-boned in an intersection, causing her to strike a pedestrian as her car careens out of control. When she regains consciousness at the hospital, she remembers the body striking her windshield, but no victim is found at the scene. Who was he and what became of him? Agent Griffin Hammersmith is out visiting a college friend in Gaffer’s Ridge and is walking through the streets of the more remote sections of town when he hears a voice screaming for help. Taking a quick look around, he sees no one, and he heads for the nearest home to assist. Inside, Carson DeSilva, has managed to free herself from after being kidnapped and wrapped in duct tape, and is waving a broken piece of pipe at her captor as she yells for help. Griffin bursts through the door, distracting the kidnapper, who Carson then hits in the head, subduing him. When they call for help from the local police, they learn that then kidnapper is the sheriff’s nephew, and both Griffin & Carson find themselves locked up. Griffin calls Savich for help. As Griffin & Carson talk amongst themselves, he learns of her abilities, that seem to mirror his own – she had heard the kidnapper, Rafer Bodine, thinking about three missing girls, and how one of them had died hard. As the FBI descends upon the town of Gaffer’s Ridge and takes over the investigation, it appears that the entire Bodine family perhaps has something to hide…but what?? As both investigations continue, Sherlock struggles to overcome her injuries, as she and Dillon continue their search for the missing and injured pedestrian, they learn that he was a CIA analyst, and surmise that he is on the run…but from what? Meanwhile, during a search of the Bodine properties, Sherlock learns that the Bodine matriarch may have a few psychic secrets of her own…This is another series that I just cannot get enough of! Sherlock & Savich are like old friends that have come back to visit, each time I open the cover of a new book, and I just want the story to go on and on. Saying goodbye as I turn the last page is always so hard to do! Another, great, un-put-downable read from one of the best!!

Only later is this mysterious man identified by his blood on the windshield as missing CIA analyst Justin Cummings.. This proves to a major link in Savich & Sherlock's subsequent convoluted investigation … uncovering possible espionage by multiple nefarious factions. Another FBI agent Griffin Hammersmith is on vacation and visiting friends in the sleepy and touristy Gaffer's Ridge in Virginia … while on a relaxing stroll he is suddenly struck by a psychic call for help.. Drop dead gorgeous journalist, Carson DeSilva is held prisoner by mad man kidnapper, Rafer Bodine. He most likely is responsible for the kidnapping and possible murder of three sixteen year old girls from the small neighboring towns.. Griffin rescues her and takes down Rafer … but, the local Sheriff feels that her story is ridiculous and refuses to accept Griffin's FBI credentials as bonified. Rafer apparently is the nephew of the sheriff. In desperation Griffin puts in a call for aid to Savich,, as he sits at the bedside of his amnestic wife and partner. Coulter is truly a masterful storyteller and spins a twisted and intriguing narrative intertwining the two storylines … that culminates in an exciting and unexpected denouement. This novel was gobbled up like a tasty desert …. however, leaving one craving for more! Thanks to NetGalley and Gallery Books for providing an Uncorrected Proof in exchange for an honest review.

Waking up in the hospital, she can’t remember her name or recognize her family. Blood found on her car is linked to a missing CIA Analyst. Where did the obviously hurt man go after the accident? More importantly, who or what was he running from?In rural Gaffer’s Ridge, FBI Agent Griffin Hammersmith is taking a vacation trying to forget his recent break-up with his fiancée Anna and a particularly bizarre recent case with Agent Savich. He hears someone’s thoughts, who is in danger. Carson DeSilva is trapped with a man who, she psychically believes, has already brutally killed three missing teenagers. Once free with the killer Rafer Bodine trapped, Griffin calls the police. But will he and Carson get justice when the Sheriff poo-poos their claim and states his nephew, Rafer, is an upstanding citizen—not a serial killer.Agents Savich and Sherlock continue to bring original plots to their books. The amnesia throws a wrench into their relationship but you feel nothing could bring them down for long.There is a lot going on here but the author does a good job keeping all the subplots boiling. Usually, one plot is the main one leaving the others as kind of a filler you have to rush through to get back to the interesting story. That didn’t happen in Labyrinth. All the plots were compelling. I read the book in one sitting. It is a great addition to the FBI Thriller series. 4 stars!Thanks to Gallery Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.

FBI agent Lacey Sherlock is driving when her car is suddenly hit, she spins out of control, hits a pedestrian, and wakes up in the hospital with amnesia. While the accident truly was a case of Sherlock being in the wrong place at the wrong time, it leads FBI Agent Dillon Savich (Sherlock's husband) and Sherlock on a path leading to corruption in the CIA. Can they unravel the mystery and keep anyone else from losing their lives?Meanwhile, another agent, Agent Hammersmith, is on vacation when he hears someone yelling for help. Running into a house he discovers a kidnapping victim trying to escape. When they are faced with the local law enforcement, it appears that all the major players in the town of Gaffer's Ridge are related to Rafer, the suspected kidnapper. With the help of the local branch of the FBI, Hammersmith and DeSilva (the victim) embark on a mission to find out what exactly is going on in this town, where there are also 4 teenage girls missing. Can Sherlock recover her memory and still be valuable to not only her family but the agency that needs her help to solve these crimes?Highly recommend this book, and the whole series.

I must wonder if Ms. Coulter writes all of her books with two distinct and separate stories/plot-lines and if they are always featuring the paranormal?Unfortunately what kept this book from getting more stars is the fact that two different stories were going on at the same time and I was unable to work up enough emotion and to keep the passion I did manage to get to continue throughout the novel.(view spoiler)[Sherlock's amnesia was a useful plot device and will keep the faithful reader wondering about the future. (hide spoiler)]The next problem I had was parts of the ending just seemed like excessive usage of monologues on the roles of some of the characters. The speeches were more of a 'verbal vomiting' of everyone's guilt and a very cliched end to one of the main characters.Although I wasn't thrilled with this particular book -I did like it well enough to look into the rest of the series.*ARC supplied by the publisher.

This story is fast moving and bring our characters into close contact with espionage, security at the highest levels and the CIA. Concurrently, Griffin is out in the country taking a break after completing a tough case. But these guys can't catch a break and he finds himself subconsciously hearing screams for help, which leads him to a home where he saves a gorgeous, kidnapped reporter from possible death. This story veers rather oddly into the paranormal psychic realms with our protagonists and villians battling with their brains as well as their brawn to find missing young women that are disappearing at an increasingly fast pace.I've read the entire series of books and this was not only a very quick read, but one that I skimmed over parts and was hoping for the end. With two divergent plot lines, neither one was as intricate or compelling as a well developed single plot might have been. As a light weight beach read, Ms. Coulter nailed it.

At the same time, Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith finds his vacation in Gaffer’s Ridge, Virginia, interrupted by a bizarre case involving the kidnapping of several young women, where the prime suspect comes from a powerful family and is the nephew of the local sheriff.Right out of the gate, the events surrounding Sherlock’s car accident and the intriguing circumstances that enveloped Griffin in Gaffer’s Ridge, had captured my attention, drawing me into this story. However, as the story continued to unfold, it did so at a sluggish rate, and I found myself disengaging on several occasions.Overall, both cases were interesting and absorbing, but some of the peculiar aspects of the Gaffer’s Ridge case was a bit over-the-top for my tastes. Nevertheless, I found “Labyrinth” to be an enjoyable read and another great installment to one of my favorite series.

After being arrested he calls in the big guns to help clear him and deal with all the problems. Very smoothly written couldn't put it down until I finished it! Now I have to wait for the next book!! Strong storyline and well developed characters and world building. Can be read as a stand alone but I enjoyed it more knowing the other characters from other books. Well worth reading.

He enlists Savich and Sherlock and ultimately, the full force of the FBI. This is twisty with a fair number of characters in the two plot threads (there's a whole thing with a CIA analyst as well) but you won't get lost in it. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC. A good read for fans of conspiracy/law enforcement/FBI thrillers.
