Description

Catherine Coulter's fast-paced FBI novels featuring married agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich have rocketed up the New York Times bestseller lists and garnered millions of fans. Coulter's heady blend of action and intrigue, her 'complex plotting and likable characters' (Publishers Weekly), grow more intoxicating with each book — and reach new heights in Blindside.

When six-year-old Sam Kettering is kidnapped and then manages to save himself, Savich and Sherlock join his father—former FBI agent Miles Kettering —to determine why Sam would be abducted and brought to eastern Tennessee. Though the local sheriff, Katie Benedict, catches up with Sam before the kidnappers do, the case isn't over —not by a long shot.

The unanswered question is: Why do the kidnappers want this little boy so badly? The investigation leads Savich and Sherlock to a charismatic, intense evangelist, Reverend Sooner McCamy, and his enigmatic wife. As if the kidnapping case weren't enough, Savich and Sherlock are at the same time desperate to locate the killer of three teachers in Washington, D.C.

    James Marple, math teacher, is tied to a chair. Unlike the other two cases involving math teachers who were shot without preamble, Marple was kidnapped first. Hoping to capture Marvin Phelps, whom they suspect of being the serial killer, Kurt Cooper, sniper, fired prematurely and killed him. Switch to the gym where Dillon and Sherlock work out – and a beautiful Valerie Rapper approaches him. Second case: Two kidnappers are in a deserted area of eastern Tennessee. In the other room is a tied up six year old who hears his deceased mother’s voice urging him not to panic or give up. Sam escapes through the window and, happily, is picked up by Sheriff Katie Benedict who was driving slowly because of the storm. Katie manages to wound one of the kidnappers and takes Sam home. Sam is the son of Miles Ketterling, a good friend and former colleague of Dillon and Sherlock. The FBI and deputies arrive quickly and are surprised there’s another attempt to abduct the boy. Although Miles owns a large company, there was no ransom note so it was shocking when the kidnappers showed up in the middle of the night to try kidnapping Sam again. After Dillon and Sherlock are called back due to another murdered math teacher, the plot thickens. Miles and the Sheriff continue to follow clues to discover who’s behind the abduction. And why Sam?

    Bad writing is all I have to say. I hate when I waste my reading time with something like this. Makes me think I could be a writer- obviously you don't always need talent. Thumbs down.

    I like to read about Dillon Savich & Lacey Sherlock thrilling adventure. They are good FBI agents and happly marred. I think they meet alot of different kinds of people through their cases.

    This is the 8th installment in Catherine Coulter's FBI series. It fallows Savech and Sherlock as they track down the Math teacher Killer, as well as helping out their friend Miles Kettering save his son from kidnappers and helping him find love with the local Sheriff Katie. The plot is fairly predictable on all counts you pretty much can suspect the main criminal players as well as figuring out how Miles' and Katie's relationship will develop. That is the only complaint about Coulter's FBI series!

    I liked the main characters okay, but all the other characters, from the really bad guys to the obnoxious woman in the gym, were very unrealistic. Three mysteries were going on at once and -- surprise, surprise -- the author was able to solve them all. But there were no viable hints to enable to reader to figure the mysteries out, so it left me with a so-what feeling.

    Good guys and bad guys. No in-betweens. Children, moms, dads, apple pie, and happily ever after.

    Six year old Sam ran out of the forest in the pouring rain and changed Sheriff Katie Benedicts life forever. Getting him dried off and his father, Miles Kettering, called, the Sheriff found out that he had been kidnapped. Brave Sam had saved himself and with the help of Sheriff Benedict and her daughter, he got warm and they settled to wait for his dad. Miles was flying out to get his son with long time friend Dillon Savich and got to the sheriffs house in time to see that it was not over yet. This story is about kid strength, I am not sure if anyone that young would really react that well. The story also incorporated a lot of bits from previous book. If you have not read the series, you may not follow all of the 'inside jokes', or know the other people involved. Since I have read the series, in order now, I have to say that seeing some of the same characters over again is fun. This book showed Savich get hurt and little Sean be threatened and their reaction to it. Wonderful characters, thank you Catherine Coulter.
