As my title suggests, that’s my favorite line of this new audiobook series I’ve been reading… so far. I’m sure there will be other lines that apply to my sense of humor over the course of it. But then, I get ahead of myself. A bit more explanation is in order, I think…
I’ve been listening to Catherine Coulter’s FBI Thriller Series on audiobook while knitting all of the things!!! There are 19 total. I’ll be posting a bit about each as I finish it. It may be a bit, as I’m waiting on credits for audible/paydays to get more. I believe I have enough to get this series begun, at the very least…
As before, with the Anita Blake Series, if you click the links below, you will be brought right to that book’s analysis. So, grab your project, sit back, and relax… In the words of Vince Fontaine in Grease “Away we go!!!” 🙂

As with every book in a series, it begins with a great mystery. We hear about a woman named Sally (her last name is not that important, the further into the book we go, as she hates it as much as one could possibly hate their last name. It’s Brainard, if you must know…), who is on the run from something. It is not easily apparent as to what she’s running from. We learn this shortly after reading the first few sentences. Sally has to adjust a wig, which would tell readers that she is on the run… It pulls you in, right from the beginning. We learn that Sally believes she is running from the law after murdering her Stepfather, and then the men trying to bring her back to a Sanitarium.
She arrives in a small little town (The Cove) where her Aunt Amabel lives with her older friends. It’s a mystery as to HOW the “World’s Greatest Ice Cream Shop” can singlehandedly bring The Cove back from the brink of decay and extinction. All without the help of young people to do the work. This fact doesn’t really bother Sally at first. Her main concern is weither or not she’s been followed. She believes that the only one who would be following her, is the doctor and his minions are the only ones who could be following her. When in fact, FBI Special Agent James Quinlan has been following her. He wants to know the truth of what happened to her Stepfather.
I won’t give away the mystery. You’ll have to read it for yourself… I’ll just leave this little tidbit. Sally and James end up solving both issues together, along with the help from Special Agent Dillon Savich (a computer wizard) . Their relationship started off with a rocky start (she ends up getting injured on her motorcycle trying to get away from him), but it grows from there. So much, that we see them further down the road.
If you were wondering, THIS is where I got the title of this entry from… One of the cops said it at the very end of this book. He, apparently, had been waiting the entire course of the book to say it. To be honest, I had a feeling it was coming. It would have been the first joke out of my mouth, given the main character’s name… The author showed her restraint in making that joke at the very end of the book! 🙂 LOL.
This is another mystery. It revolves around the growing relationship between Special Agents Dillon Savich & Lacey Sherlock. Savich’s department at the FBI revolves around catching Serial Killers by using his computer programming skills. The Maze (or String) Killer is the Guy that Sherlock has been chasing since she was 19, and is the reason she wanted to join the FBI. Together, she and Dillon catch him twice. He escapes from the mental institution where the judge had him committed due to how the trial ended up working out. We learn at the same time that Sherlock does, HOW she knows about the kind of man that this Serial Killer actually is as we read on.
It was a REALLY good read. Trust me, it’s worth a listen. The reader does a great job as well. There is a lot of subtle jokes/nuances to the story that may be overlooked if not read properly. She does a great job, and I was engulfed in the story as I was listening.
Just started this today (9/22), and can’t wait to see what happens next! It starts off with some great action! 🙂
When I saw that this one wasn’t due out until this July, I was excited to go and pre-order it. I’ll do my review of it once I have finished it. Until then, you’ll have to wait on baited breath with me! Until then, CHEERS! 😉
Update 8/12: I got contacted by the Publishers to review this one, even before it was out… You’ll have to wait a bit for this review, as I’m JUST about done with it! But, it will be worth the wait, I promise you! 🙂
Hope you enjoyed my review of this series as I loved listening to them! Till next time! – Silver –
