Yale professor Dr. Edward Kender's father is undergoing chemotherapy when the supply of a critical accompanying drug suddenly runs out. Unwilling to accept the drug company's disingenuous excuse of production line problems, Dr. Kender hires private investigator Erin Pulaski to prove that something more sinister is going on at Schiffer Hartwin. Meanwhile, in Maryland, married FBI agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich are investigating a rather unusual case: Senator David Hoffman is experiencing a ghostly apparition with possible malicious intent. The case is baffling, and Sherlock and Savich are not sure what to believe, even after witnessing the disturbing specter for themselves. They're no closer to cracking the case when a call comes in from Connecticut: A top foreign Schiffer Hartwin employee has been found murdered behind the drug company's U.S. headquarters. Unbeknownst to the FBI, Erin Pulaski had uncovered a bombshell in her investigation: The Culovort shortage is set to bring in a windfall profit in excess of two billion dollars. Upon learning of the murder, Erin is certain it has something to do with her findings, but she risks exposing herself by coming forward. As the feds move in, the case becomes even more complicated for Erin, since the murder of a foreign national on federal land can mean only that the pharmaceutical house has a secret of epic proportions-one it would do anything to keep hidden.

Felt a bit patchy in places but entertaining.
This book is a fast paced, easy to get drawn into suspense thriller that I totally felt comfortable with even though it is #14 in a series have only read a few books for. Dillon Savich and Lacy Sherlock are truly wonderful characters, as a husband wife team or solely as FBI agents they are compellin...
A pretty good suspense story but there really wasn't much romance. It's always fun to read about an investigation with Savich and Sherlock. I liked the bond developing between the heroine and the hero's daughter. I just wish there was more romance in the story. PI Erin barely escapes a break in ...
As usual I enjoyed this FBI thriller from Catherine Coulter. I really like her hero (Savich) and heroine (Sherlock, yup that's her real name). They make an excellent (and clean) team with different abilities that mesh well together. There isn't usually much romance or sex and the violence isn't gra...
My opinion of this book plummeted when Erin deemed it was acceptable babysitting protocol to pop a few pain killers and load her charge into the backseat of her car in the middle of the night to visit the scene of a homicide she had no business being at, because she couldn't stand to wait to learn w...
