Father Michael Joseph knows the man on the other side of the wire meshed confessional has already killed twice. The demented man brags even torments him by confessing he'll kill again. Believing the good Father is helpless to do anything because of his vow of silence, the killer is stunned to hear the priest threaten to tell the police --even if it means he has to leave the priesthood to do it. Mildly upset that Father Joseph wasn't behaving as he should he says,..."'Do you know you've given me something I've never had before in my life?' 'What?' 'Fun, Father, I've never had so much fun in my life. Except, maybe, for this.' He waited until Father Michael Joseph looked toward him through the wire mesh. He fired point-blank, right through the priest's forehead. There was a loud popping sound, nothing more because he'd screwed on a sliencer...." A young homeless woman sitting in the pews hears the popping sound. Fear strikes her. She knows that sound belongs to gunfire. She scrambles to the floor hiding in the shadows of the pew. Holding her breath, she sees Father Michael's assassin in the dim light as he passes within a few feet of her. Nick is on the run, hiding from her own past. Father Michael only wanted to help her. Can she do the right thing and help the FBI find his killer, even if it means putting her own life in danger? Special Agent Dane Carver is the priest's twin brother. Devastated and angry, he will do anything and everything to find his brother's killer and with the help of fellow agents, Savich and Sherlock, they embark on a bizarre tale laden with terror and evil at every twisted turn. This FBI thriller is a true page turner. It has just enough suspense with a splash of romance to keep your mind tingling and craving, "More Coulter, please."
Publishers Weekly, 2002-07-29 The midnight murder of a priest in his confessional and real-time serial killings based on TV scripts are the basis for this latest installment in Coulter's bestselling FBI series (Hemlock Bay, etc.). Dillon and Sherlock Savich, Coulter's husband-and-wife investigative team, take a backseat this time around, making way for D.C. Special Agent Dane Carver. When Carver learns his twin brother, Father Michael Carver, has been murdered in his San Francisco church, Savich sends him out to work the case with the SFPD, who suspect this is one in a spate of recent serial killings. A potential witness, homeless woman Nick Jones, tries to run, and Carver takes her into protective custody in his hotel room. Jones, who is actually a college professor fleeing from her possibly murderous fianc, an Illinois state senator, has no choice but to join forces with Carver. It is she who sees an FBI drama on TV and connects the plot with the recent serial murders. Investigation of the TV studio execs and the show's crew and cast introduces a flock of distinctive Coulter characters who spice up the plot and speed the read. Meanwhile, Carver and Jones fall in love and find themselves in danger as they help Dillon and Sherlock delve into Nick's past. The heavy doses of romance and dearth of procedural detail mean this novel isn't the thing for hardcore FBI thriller devotees, but the complex plotting and likable characters make it a great beach book for Coulter fans, who will welcome Dane and Nick as new protagonists.
