Hello everyone! Hope your week went well! There have been some VERY exciting things happening in my neck of the world. I was invited to read a preview of Catherine Coulter’s “Insidious” by the publishers directly! I’m SOOO glad that I took them up on the offer, let me tell you. The Book release was on 8/9, and I was supposed to have posted this teaser/review then. But, you know how I do… Always late. But, I promise, there’s a reason for my delay this time.
It officially came out Tuesday, and I’ve already read this book twice. One as the preview that they sent to me, and the second as an Audiobook. I loved it THAT much! I mean, just read the Synopsis of the book that they sent me, and I think you’ll understand just WHY I got hooked right away.
“Insidious is the twentieth thriller in #1 New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter’s FBI series. FBI agents Savich and Sherlock must discover who is trying to murder Venus Rasmussen, a powerful, wealthy society icon. They soon find out that the danger may be closer than expected.
Venus Rasmussen, a powerful woman who runs the international conglomerate Rasmussen Industries, believes someone is poisoning her. After Savich and Sherlock visit with her, someone attempts to shoot her in broad daylight. Who’s trying to kill her and why? A member of her rapacious family, or her grandson who’s been missing for ten years and suddenly reappears? Savich and Sherlock must peel away the layers to uncover the incredible truth about who would target Venus.
Meanwhile, Special Agent Cam Wittier leaves Washington for Los Angeles to work with local Detective Daniel Montoya to lead the hunt for the Starlet Slasher, a serial killer who has cut the throats of five young actresses. When a sixth young actress is murdered, Cam comes to realize the truth might be closer than she’d ever want to believe.
With breakneck speed and unexpected twists and turns, Coulter’s Insidious will leave you breathless until the shocking conclusion.”

Catherine Coulter’s Social Links:
The first read through of this book went so fast, because I was invested in Ms. Coulter’s wonderful story. I’ve always loved the characters of Savich and Sherlock, but this time we get to know their son Sean a bit too, which is pretty awesome. We also get to know a bit more about their artistic sides as well as their ability to think through a mystery really quickly. Once the first readthrough was done, I simply wanted more of this wonderful story. I decided I wanted to have several mediums to read this book on, so I kept my pre-order of the book on Audible as well. For this book in the series, there was a dual readership going on. Both Renee Raudman and MacLeod Andrews did a wonderful job of bringing the voices in this wonderful book to life. Not only could you tell that they enjoyed the story as they were reading, but there were a few accents that were used, to make this rich story even better.
My Goodreads Review:
As soon as I finished both versions of this book, I made sure to review it on Goodreads, as well as leaving a comment for Catherine on her blog. Here’s what I wrote there on Goodreads.
||I absolutely LOVED this book. It had more mystery elements than I remember of the series, but there was definitely the usual “wow Savich figured it out pretty fast” element right at the end. I listened to this through Audible, and I really liked the dual-readership they had going on! All around, well done! 🙂
But, sometimes reading is believing. Read the book, and let me know what you think.Also, you’ll have to read the book for yourself to know…
Insidious can be found on MANY different Mediums:
Hope you enjoyed my review as much as I loved the chance to review this wonderful book! Till Next Time! -Silver-
