Split Second by Catherine Coulter is another of her stories that combines the mystical with the hard-boiled realism of the FBI and the horrendous cases it deals with. It is always heartwarming to get a glimpse of the deep love and adoration that exists between Savitch and Sherlock and their adorable son. The three different mysteries are deftly interwoven even as the intriguing legacy that Carlyle inherits exacts its own form of payment. An interesting look at the potential handicaps that agents face when trying to apprehend their perpetrator even while trying to protect the innocent (or not so innocent) bystanders. An enjoyable and suspenseful read as usual. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9485701-split-second
I always enjoy reading Ms. Coulter’s work and I think that it is partly because her heroines have smart mouths (much like myself), no matter what genre she is writing in. They tend to snap out a comeback without filtering it and often get themselves in trouble but their sunny personalities tend to redeem them. Many people are disturbed by the psychic elements that seem to be permeating the series but I think that is what helps set them apart from other romantic suspense tales. I am not positive that I would have had the strength to make the same decision that Lucy does by the end of the book but I certainly understand her reasoning. Anyway, I really enjoyed the tale and look forward to many more.
