Backfire is the latest book in Catherine Coulter’s FBI Thriller series. In Backfire, fictional FBI agents, Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock investigate the case of Judge Ramsey Hunt who is shot and seriously wounded in his own backyard. The agents are also working a case that involves a threat made against Savich. The shooting takes place in California. The threat against Savich takes place on the East Coast. The story line eventually weaves these two cases together to make Backfire a good suspense/thriller.
In Backfire, many of the characters that the reader has met in previous novels in Coulter’s FBI Thriller series return. Of course, there is the husband and wife team of Savich and Sherlock. There is their 5 year old son, Sean, who already has three girlfriends. One of the main characters in this novel, Ramsey Hunt, was also a main character in The Target, an earlier FBI Thriller by Coulter.
There are now sixteen books in Coulter’s FBI Thriller series. The first book is The Cove which was first released in 1996. If you are looking for a new suspense/thriller series to start, you might want to give Catherine Coulter a try.
