Summary

Special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine take on a ruthless mastermind in the fifth highly anticipated thriller in the New York Times best-selling A Brit in the FBI series.

When several major political figures die mysteriously, officials declare the deaths are from natural causes. Then the German Vice-Chancellor dies on the steps of 10 Downing Street, and a drone is spotted hovering over the scene. The truth becomes clear - these high-profile deaths are well-constructed assassinations, and the Covert Eyes team is tasked to investigate.

With the help of Dr. Isabella Marin, a young expert in the enigmatic Voynich Manuscript and cryptophasia (twin language), Nicholas and Michaela home in on Roman Ardelean, a wealthy cybersecurity genius and a descendant of 15th century Romanian Vlad the Impaler - often romanticized as Dracula. Ardelean believes the Voynich Manuscript will unlock the secret to curing his severely ill twin brother's blood disorder and is willing to murder anyone who gets in his way, including Nicholas and Michaela.

Along with MI5, the Covert Eyes team must race against the clock to find Ardelean before he unleashes a devastating attack on London intended to destroy those he believes betrayed him.

With heart-pounding tension and gripping suspense, New York Times best-selling authors Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison "are really on an amazing roll with their outstanding A Brit in the FBI series" (RT Book Reviews).

Not my cup of tea

Sorry but absolutely hated this book. This is nothing like the Savage series and I found this very hard to follow. Apparently I’m in the minority.

A bit dark for my taste

I have tried 3 times to read this through, but always end up skipping over dark parts. As always with this series, narration was wonderful.
I finally read it all the way through. It was actually pretty good, though not as good as the other books in this series.

What happened??

I usually really enjoy Coulter’s books, including this series... which tends to be a bit sci-fi like. However this book was just ridiculous and hard to get through or listen to. Since other reviews say book 7 gets back on track... I’ll give it a try. But I recommend just skipping this hot mess.

Just for Brits

Much of the banter and subtle references that the story relies on will only be caught or understood by the Brits.
I gave up about a third of the way through.
The pace is also too slow for me. Maybe the story had an interesting line, but it could not keep my attention long enough to get to that part.

Saving the world again!

Fun to reconnect with characters who seem like old acquaintances. Plenty of humor and thrills!

Fast forward frown of a book

I love CC! Love her! Always buy her books. It pains me deeply to give this one a thumbs down. The story was boring and a little too paranormal for my liking. I set the speed on 1.5x and still had to forward the story. I most look forward to catching up with one of my favorite literary couples-Mikayla and Nicholas, but even that fell short. The extent of the romance was he touched her check and references to them being up all night in the bedroom. Wink-wink. Lame. So much potential wasted for what romance readers like me crave, actually NEED, when we wait a year between books. I am left empty on this one and will likely start borrowing instead of buying this series unless it becomes a bit deeper romantically and less deep paranormally.

Love the Mystery

It seemed a little slow to get started and a little over the deep end, but then enter the heroes and it took off in flight and became as much a horror store as an action story. Entertaining and intriguing. Hard to put down.

Unhappy with this one

I love all the A Brit in the FBI books, except for this one. I found it very boring until about half way through. I was leery about getting book 6 because I was afraid it was going to be like book 5. It was not. Book 6 was great and I am glad I bought it. I do not know what happened with this book. ALL their Brit in the FBI books have been great.
Please Catherine and J.T. Don’t write anymore like book 5.
Can’t wait for book 7 to come out!

What happened to Catherine?

This book is SO disappointing. This was supposed to be a "Brit in the FBI" story but Catherine Coulters characters play second fiddle to the "bad" guys. Plot was way to convoluted and it took to long to figure out why the "bad" guys were bad.
