it was ok
Read in June, 2009

** spoiler alert ** Although I thoroughly enjoyed the first in Coulter's FBI series, they seem to have a more and more "phoned in" feel. The dialogue isn't very natural, and most characters talk the same way. I had some serious issues with the authenticity - I was not sold on FBI procedures. However, the kicker for me was that so much of the premise of the book revolved around a character's death being declared a drunk driving accident -- yet nowhere could I find a reference to a blood alcohol level or an autopsy. Smelling alcohol does NOT count! The characters seemed flat as well. It was billed as a 'thriller' yet it didn't come close to the definition of a thriller, which implies some disaster of worldwide proportions that must be averted.
