The Lost Key by Catherine Coulter and J. T. Ellison
(G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 2014, 464 pages)
The Lost Key by Catherine Coulter and J. T. Ellison is the second book in the A Brit in the FBI series. FBI agent, Nicholas Drummond, and his partner, “Mike” Caine, are called to investigate a murder on Wall Street. The victim, John Pearce, was more than the local owner of a rare book store. Pearce had information that was wanted by a billionaire owner of a bio-tech corporation. John Pearce’s final words are “The key is in the lock.” Drummond and Caine must interpret those final words to solve the murder and, possibly, save the world.
I found this book more interesting than the first book in the series, The Final Cut. The characters are more interesting. There was a slight resemblance to Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. Sherlock and Savich from Coulter’s other FBI series make an appearance in this book.
There is a third book in the A Brit in the FBI series entitled The End Game. I will put that on my “to read” list. If you enjoy Coulter’s work or FBI thrillers, you might want to put The Lost Key on your “to read” list.
