In several secondary stories, an elderly shop owner is targeted for murder, and one of the FBI agents is at her father’s bedside as he passes, only to hear him blurt out information about a crime committed long ago. Could this be true, and what really happened? And what is this family trying to hide? A really cool, twisty thriller with surprises around every bend! Please excuse typos/name misspellings.

Or just glad that the series was moved along with another book? Well, I’ve had such an experience with Split Second, the latest installment of Catherine Coulter’s FBI series. Rationale and the Law of Averages suggest that I can’t have an awesome book every time, but I still have hope with each new printing. The idea of the book was great and I was caught immediately in the chase of the daughter of a prolific and infamous killer and also the mystery in the life of another FBI agent. Of course, Savich and Sherlock are back but their roles are more supporting than in previous books. I don’t know if I like that as I have gotten used to them being in the forefront at all times. Somehow, I missed the action in this book. The timeline of the book says everything happened in under two weeks, the action and intensity just weren’t there, even when chasing a serial killer. Also, I missed the sinister mood that Coulter usually evokes with her books. I mean, I’m reading about the daughter of one of the world’s most known killers and I don’t feel like she is coming for me. Also, what was the story with the aunt? That went nowhere; just left me wondering if I needed to read a few chapters over again. I just didn’t feel the urgency with this book. And the side story of agent Lucy Carlyle……just felt under developed and, in the end, unfinished. The thing paranormal connection just wasn’t there, not in the way that it had been with Hemlock Bay with the Satanist twins. I know this sounds a bit ironic but I did like this book…only not as much as I thought I should. Does that make sense? I have been reading the FBI series since The Cove and The Maze and will continue to read as long as Ms. Coulter chooses to write them.

I was sent an ARC of this book by the publisher in return for an honest review. Honest is the key work there, but I hate it when I don't enjoy a book and have to give it a bad review. I used to read Catherine Coulter and always loved her books, but this one was just not a book that I could enjoy. I would classify this book as a suspense. The main story line is about 4 FBI agents: Savich & Sherlock (married), and Lucy & Coop (falling in love) who are all after a serial killer who just happens to be the daughter of Ted Bundy. Intermixed within that story are several other little side stories: 1. Lucy & Coop's romance which really was sadly only about a page or two of the book because I would have liked to have read more along this line. 2. a paranormal side story featuring Lucy's murdered grandfather and a magical ring. 3. an investigation that Savich is doing about a convenience store shooting which features some real soap-opera-like drama which had NOTHING at all to do with any other part of the story. I have no idea why this was in the book. All three of those stories could have been non-existent and it would have helped to make the main story line stronger because they just helped the entire book feel disjointed and unfocused. Unfortunately, the main story line about Bundy's serial-killing daughter was simply not strong enough by itself to make up for the distractions that came from the other stories. The one thing that I did really enjoy about the book was husband and wife team, Savich & Sherlock. I may just have to look up some of Catherine Coulter's older book(s) that feature their story. They were a great couple and the scenes featuring them were fun to read.

That said.... there could have been a lot more sizzle between Coop and Lucy. Coop was a very likable character that you would not mind knowing. He knows his job and how to work with his co-workers. He is centered. He is dedicated. He is virile. Lucy, on the other hand is not very likable (and I tried), she does not work well with others nor does she show the level of maturity you would expect of someone with her accomplishments. Why does she assume the worst of Coop? Why does she not confide in Savich when she thinks something is odd in her background. Why does she not let someone(where are HER friends???) help her when she searches the mansion? Why does she lie to Coop and Savich when they try to let her know they are there for her? Why is the woman so dang secretive and over what? After all once she has discovered what IS in the attic, and its all out and in the media what point did she have in not coming forward with whatever information she had like a FBI agent should do and utilize her resources? I hate a character expecially a female who is a ditz for no good reason. Lucy is exactly that.

    I have mixed feelings about this novel, I liked it and disliked it at the same time. It started off with the FBI tracking a serial killer from San Francisco that was drugging and killing women picked up in bars. At first the killer was thought to be a man but it was soon discovered to be a woman, Ted Bundy's daughter no less. And so the chase for a madwoman began.

Personally, I felt as though I could have done without some of the extra stuff and a little more time could have been spent on developing the main story better with some more details.

    While I've always been (and will continue to be)a great fan of Coulter's FBI series, I afraid Split Second was not one of my favourites.

And the detour storyline regarding Lucy's ring...What was that about?

    Maybe I'm just a snob and am used to reading better quality literature, but I felt the writing in this book was so bad, like laughably bad, and corny. I've never read anything by this author or in this series before, so I don't really have much to base it on, but just not my cup of tea. Didn't expect much more than a crime thriller from an author who seems to pop out one a year, but I had a hard time staying interested in it or buying into the hokey nature of every level of then plot line.

    Pretty descent novel about some FBI agents. There are a few twists and turns, and some good action sequences. But, other than that, it was pretty straight forward. I enjoyed it, though, and kept reading because I wanted to see what happened. It didn't wow me. But, I'm certainly glad I read it.

    Split Second suffers from Hodge-Podge Disorder - too many storylines and too many characters competing for top and second billing. The premise of the main plot is a doozy - and fairly irresistible (imagine the daughter of one of the world's most famous serial killers follows in her father's footsteps). It was that story that kept me reading through the end, but it gets muddled with too many other extraneous stories. Would have been a better book if it stayed in one lane.

    Could Ted Bundy have an illegitimate daughter - and could she be killing innocent women? That's the questions that are answered in this book and damn this one is awesome! It's #15 in a series but reads very nicely as a stand alone. Highly recommend to any murder mystery fans!

    It was good up until the time stuff started happening. There is a time and a place where that kind of stuff works and to me this wasn't either. The A plot would have been enough without all the stuff with the grandfather.

    I'd call this a 4.5 rating actually but bumped it up to the 5 stars due to the author's ability to manage three separate mystery plot lines throughout the book. In the first, Dillon stops at a convenience store for a few items, but realizes there's something wrong and manages to prevent both a robbery and the shooting of the owner. When the owner is the victim of a second attempt on his life, Dillon knows there's more going on & turns to Metro PD detective Ben Raven for assistance. The second but I'd call this a 4.5 rating actually but bumped it up to the 5 stars due to the author's ability to manage three separate mystery plot lines throughout the book.

When the owner is the victim of a second attempt on his life, Dillon knows there's more going on & turns to Metro PD detective Ben Raven for assistance. The second but focal story centers on a serial killer who is picking up women in bars, seeing them to their home, and then killing them with a wire garrote. DNA evidence ties the killer to infamous mass murderer, Ted Bundy. This was fascinating to me, but I could understand where younger readers of the book might not have the knowledge background from the 1970's-80's to fully appreciate the plot nuances. The killer in this case keeps Savich, Sherlock, and agents Lucy Carlyle and Cooper McKnight on their toes and criss-crossing the country. I have the feeling that the loose ends from this part of the story may turn up in a future book. The third story brings events in Lucy's past front & center in the present day. Upon her father's deathbed, it is revealed that her grandfather, whom Lucy believed to have simply left & never returned when she was a child, had in fact been killed by her grandmother and the killing was concealed by her father & grandmother. Lucy moves back to the family home to try to figure out what prompted her grandmother & father to act that way. Then the paranormal activity in the book steps up when Lucy receives a curious ring left to her by her grandfather. At this point, I found the ring plotline a little hard to swallow, especially when it seemed to be based on the Omega 13 device out of the movie Galaxy Quest. But, as ever, I was willing to go with the flow and stay along for the resolution. It did bring up an interesting point to ponder as to if you yourself would use such a ring and to what purpose. And, yes, I know I'm being vague - read the book to find out what it's all about.

I'm not sure why the woo got mixed into this series. I'm a bit tired of the woo. I like my crime-drama-suspense-with-a-dash-of-romance just fine without the woo. I like woo too, but it has become a bit tiresome in this series. Ok, where's the magic item, or person with some sort of special power or dead person to communicate with this time? The CAU needs to become the WAU. Fortunately in this one the woo was downplayed, and a bit nifty. I don't quite buy that Dillon didn't clue into it, especially in the park. He's too quick to have not picked up on it. The scene with Lucy and Miranda was awesome though, and really makes you think, what would YOU do with eight seconds? When would you use it, why, and why not. A moral quandary more than a magic one. I'm on the fence with Lucy's choice, but I can see why she made it. I loved Mr. Patil. What a character he is! I love his response when they figured out who was trying to kill him. I felt bad for him, and Dillon, who seems lately to keep walking in on robberies gone wrong. (is it him? makes you wonder!) Kirsten was just bat shit crazy. It takes skill to write that level of crazy. Her aunt was equally crazy, but in her way, I think far more evil. She's insidious. Kirstin was a fun twist and a curious one that makes you wonder. Sick, twisted and just plain crazy. All in all, a good read. I'd say page-turner, but I read it on the Kindle. So a fast clicker? :) It'll get re-read a few times before being archived.

They work for Dillon and are on the trail of Ted Bundy's serial killer daughter. Yes, I too was a bit flabbergasted and had to read on. Ted's daughter was pretty crazy. What I thought was creepy was the "mother" Elizabeth and twin Sentra. I think Aunt Sentra is really mommy dearest. I don't know if we will ever learn more about this piece, but boy, that family is crazy. I enjoyed the sleuthing in this book as each piece of the puzzle was found and added to the whole picture. I also enjoyed how the threads pulled together. Lucy's mystery about her grandparents was just weird. This added psychic element was interesting for me because I like psychic stuff. I liked the ring and I wished there was more to it. It's like the Lord of the Ring ring - who will own it next? HAH. All in all, this was a delightful read which I read in one day. I recommend it to romance lovers who enjoy a more complex plot along with some thrilling detective work.

In the middle of these incidents is the story of one of the FBI agents, Lucy and the death of her father and the telephone call from an attorney saying he has a letter for her from her grandfather to be given to her after her father's death. An unbelievable story around the inheritance of a ring which belonged to her grandmother. Too much magic for me. Otherwise this was a very good book. Oh yes Lucy falls in love with her FBI partner who she initailly disliked. As always Savich and Sherlock are the two main FBI agents giving us lots of action to the end.

    When FBI agent Dillon Savich walks into a convenience store one evening, he hadn’t expected to find himself in the midst of a robbery. Nor had he expected to be handed a case that involves the capture of a serial killer who happens to be Ted Bundy’s daughter. Dillon’s subordinates Lucy and Cooper are also on the case, but Lucy must deal with the sudden death of her father and his unsettling last words.

The agents have more than enough on their plates as the hunt for Bundy’s daughter turns extremely dangerous not only for the three of them, but for family members. Split Second is a fast-paced read that tells three separate stories, although the robbery becomes a minor subplot. Lucy’s personal story is given more attention for good reason, however, it veers off in an unexpected direction with the discovery of a mysterious ring. Although the story is primarily a gritty police procedural, there’s definitely a romantic component and, to a lesser degree, a paranormal aspect. Although I love cross-genre stories, this blend seems a little off balance. Having said that, I really liked the characters. It’s also refreshing to read about competent cops who, although not perfect, don’t make many mistakes.

Storyline has evolved from fiction to fantasy where civilians are welcome into investigations, every male and female lead in each story are paired up romantically, and are simply clones of the original Savich and Sherlock coupledom, the list goes on. Being no writer myself, I can figure how difficult it is to write a page, much less a series of almost 20 books. However, this series would have been remembered a lot more fondly had it stopped with the juices... like they say, you can't squeeze blood out of stone. Unfortunately, the author tried, with dusastrous results.

    OK, I admit it, I read the FBI series. Usually they're ok as "escape" reading. Lately though, I am wondering if Coulter has just been phoning them in. The more recent books, this one included, are not nearly as good as the first two or three in the series. After reading this one, my initial reaction was "Really?! That's several hours of my life I won't get back." Psychic Savage?! C'mon.

If you want to try Coulter's FBI series, try The Maze, Target or The Cove instead.

    I have been a fan of Ms Coulter's FBI series for some time now. I love the relationship between Savich and Sherlock who kind of take a back seat to Lucy and Coop, 2 other agents. In this book there are actually 3 story lines going on. The main story is about a serial killer who turns out to be the daughter of Ted Bundy. Next we have Lucy trying to discover what happened to her grandfather and finally there's the robbery of Mr. Patil that Savich walked in on. I would have preferred more emphasis I have been a fan of Ms Coulter's FBI series for some time now. I love the relationship between Savich and Sherlock who kind of take a back seat to Lucy and Coop, 2 other agents. In this book there are actually 3 story lines going on. The main story is about a serial killer who turns out to be the daughter of Ted Bundy. Next we have Lucy trying to discover what happened to her grandfather and finally there's the robbery of Mr. Patil that Savich walked in on. I would have preferred more emphasis to have been on the main story line but by the end I was anxious to find out what happened on all of them.

    The FBI agents are investigating a serial killer and learn not only that it is a woman, but also that she is Ted Bundy's daughter and a chip off her Daddy's block. Lucy Carlyle is introduced and, in a subplot, is investigating her Grandfather's murder by her Grandmother.

    A great FBI thriller that only Catherine Coulter can deliver. There is actually three cases going on, it is never confusing. Personally, it kept me turning the pages that much faster. Each storyline was as exciting as the next and all tied up nicely in the end. This is a really great read.

    I have read this book before. It was a book of the month club selection and I forgot to cancel for the month. When it came, I let it sit around for a few months then decided to try it. I couldn't put it down then and the same was true this time around. Very interesting read.

    Good quick read. Entertaining outing with Sherlock and Savich and their colleagues at the FBI. Typical for this series, but always enjoyable.
