Sort order. Jan 24, Kat rated it it was amazing Shelves: tts-not-enabled , library This was one of my favorite Catherine Coulter books! We have a serial killer on the loose, stalking women in bars and killing them. Savich and Sherlock, along with two new agents, are trying to track down this mysterious killer who dresses all in black, when view spoiler [ DNA testing reveals that not only is their suspect actually a woman, not a man, but she is likely the daughter of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy. Could this be true, and what really happened?
And what is this family trying to hide? A really cool, twisty thriller with surprises around every bend! Entered on screen reader. View 1 comment. Nov 06, Brandi rated it liked it. Did you feel let down? Or just glad that the series was moved along with another book? The idea of the book was great and I was caught immediately in the chase of the daughter of a prolific and infamous killer and also the mystery in the life of another FBI agent.
Of course, Savich and Sherlock are back but their roles are more supporting than in previous books. Somehow, I missed the action in this book. Also, I missed the sinister mood that Coulter usually evokes with her books.
Also, what was the story with the aunt? That went nowhere; just left me wondering if I needed to read a few chapters over again. And the side story of agent Lucy Carlyle……just felt under developed and, in the end, unfinished. I know this sounds a bit ironic but I did like this book…only not as much as I thought I should. Does that make sense? Coulter chooses to write them. Jun 28, Christi Snow rated it it was ok. Full review reposted from my Smitten with Reading blog My Review: Reviewing this book makes me sad.
Split Second: An FBI Thriller, Book 15 Livre audio | Catherine Coulter | beivizonlabe.gq
I was sent an ARC of this book by the publisher in return for an honest review. Honest is the key work there, but I hate it when I don't enjoy a book and have to give it a bad review. I used to read Catherine Coulter and always loved her books, but this one was just not a book that I could enjoy.
I would classify this book as a suspense. Intermixed within that story are several other little side stories: 1. I have no idea why this was in the book. All three of those stories could have been non-existent and it would have helped to make the main story line stronger because they just helped the entire book feel disjointed and unfocused. Unfortunately, the main story line about Bundy's serial-killing daughter was simply not strong enough by itself to make up for the distractions that came from the other stories.

I may just have to look up some of Catherine Coulter's older book s that feature their story. They were a great couple and the scenes featuring them were fun to read. May 17, Tim rated it it was ok. This story suffers from too many characters that leads to confusion around aimless plots. Mar 01, Richard Wolf added it Shelves: won-t-finish.
A thriller, science fiction, serial killer, romance novel. I have a hard time understanding why anyone would like it. No real characters, just stereotypes. No real adventure or excitement. View 2 comments. Re-reading entire series. Nov 22, Evelyn Bryant rated it really liked it. Enjoyed this book since it has plently of action and enough sub plots to keep you guessing.
Savich and Sherlock still have the necessary magic between them to keep you invested in them. Each story line is brought to its conclusion by the end of the book. I did not lose interest mid way the book as I have done in some other books I have read. That said Coop was a very likable character that you would not mind knowing. He knows his Enjoyed this book since it has plently of action and enough sub plots to keep you guessing. He knows his job and how to work with his co-workers.
He is centered. He is dedicated. He is virile. Lucy, on the other hand is not very likable and I tried , she does not work well with others nor does she show the level of maturity you would expect of someone with her accomplishments. Why does she assume the worst of Coop? Why does she not confide in Savich when she thinks something is odd in her background.

Why does she not let someone where are HER friends??? Why does she lie to Coop and Savich when they try to let her know they are there for her? Why is the woman so dang secretive and over what? After all once she has discovered what IS in the attic, and its all out and in the media what point did she have in not coming forward with whatever information she had like a FBI agent should do and utilize her resources?
I hate a character expecially a female who is a ditz for no good reason. Lucy is exactly that. Jan 22, Thrilled by Books rated it it was ok. I have mixed feelings about this novel, I liked it and disliked it at the same time. It started off with the FBI tracking a serial killer from San Francisco that was drugging and killing women picked up in bars. At first the killer was thought to be a man but it was soon discovered to be a woman, Ted Bundy's daughter no less. And so the chase for a madwoman began. First of all, I felt as though there was too much going on in this book. There were three seperate story lines going on, the main st I have mixed feelings about this novel, I liked it and disliked it at the same time.
Personally, I felt as though I could have done without some of the extra stuff and a little more time could have been spent on developing the main story better with some more details. Sep 12, Cyndi rated it it was ok. I actually found myself skipping pages, as I just wanted to get through the book. And the detour storyline regarding Lucy's ring What was that about? If that was supposed to be a nod to today's ever popular paranormal literature, in my opinion, it was a dismal failure and I LIK While I've always been and will continue to be a great fan of Coulter's FBI series, I afraid Split Second was not one of my favourites.
If that was supposed to be a nod to today's ever popular paranormal literature, in my opinion, it was a dismal failure and I LIKE paranormal storylines. The wrap up endings of the three storylines - no grand finales here, I mean "Really? This is one of Coulter's that I will not be reading a second time. Jul 21, Christine rated it did not like it.
Maybe I'm just a snob and am used to reading better quality literature, but I felt the writing in this book was so bad, like laughably bad, and corny. I've never read anything by this author or in this series before, so I don't really have much to base it on, but just not my cup of tea. Didn't expect much more than a crime thriller from an author who seems to pop out one a year, but I had a hard time staying interested in it or buying into the hokey nature of every level of then plot line.
Not w Maybe I'm just a snob and am used to reading better quality literature, but I felt the writing in this book was so bad, like laughably bad, and corny. Not worth the pages. View all 4 comments. Jan 22, Brian Ming rated it really liked it. Pretty descent novel about some FBI agents. There are a few twists and turns, and some good action sequences. But, other than that, it was pretty straight forward. I enjoyed it, though, and kept reading because I wanted to see what happened. It didn't wow me.
