An FBI Thriller

Book #22 of An FBI Thriller

#1 New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter delves into the terrifying mind of a dangerous psychopath obsessed with revenge in this next instalment of her riveting FBI series.

When an armed man fails to kidnap five-year-old Sean Savich, agents Sherlock and Savich know they’re in his crosshairs and must find him before he continues with his kill list.

Chief Ty Christie of Willicott, Maryland, witnesses a murder a dawn from the deck of her cottage on Lake Massey. When dragging the lake, the divers not only find the murder victim, they also discover dozens of bones. Even more shocking is the identification of a unique belt buckle found among the remains. Working together with Chief Christie, Savich and Sherlock soon discover a frightening connection between the bones and the escaped psychopath.

Paradox is a chilling mix of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, old secrets that refuse to stay buried, and ruthless greed that keeps Savich and Sherlock and Chief Ty Christie working at high speed to uncover the truth before their own bones end up at the bottom of the lake.

With unparalleled suspense and Coulter’s trademark explosive twists, Paradox is the twenty-second FBI thriller.
