"Natalie Black, the U.S. ambassador to the Court of St. James, has returned to Washington, her job in jeopardy. Her fiance; George McCallum, Viscount Lockenby, has died in a car accident, and mysterious rumors begin that she's responsible begin to surface: she broke off the engagement and, heartbroken, he killed himself. Then someone tries to force her off the M-2 outside London. Again, rumors claim it was a sympathy ploy. When she returns to the United States, she's nearly killed when a car tries to mow her down while she's out for a run. No one believes her except FBI Special Agent Davis Sullivan. Meanwhile someone is following Sherlock. A stalker? Then someone tries to shoot her from the back of a motorcycle, but the assailant gets away. Sherlock next gets a call from an Atlanta mental hospital warning her that Blessed Backman has escaped. This is not good news. Blessed is a talented psychopath out for revenge against the agents, primarily Sherlock, whom his dying mother begged him to kill since she and Savich brought down her cult. How to find out who's trying to kill the ambassador to the U.K.? How can they get their hands on Blessed Backman before he succeeds and kills Sherlock? The clock is ticking and the danger intensifies"--Provided by publisher.

I was disappointed in this book. I was grabbed by the first couple of pages which is always good and then everything changed. The writing seemed awkward at times. There were many run-on sentences which required me to re-read a section more than once to make any sense of it. Compared to other Catherine Coulter books I've read I would say someone else had written this book. The pace was slow with a lot of filler which didn't add to the characters or the plot. I would hesitate to read others in this series based on this book alone.

I enjoyed the book and the plot was interesting. However, there was far too much info about sports, which bored me, plus I found 90% of the sports stuff completely unnecessary for character or plot development, so just a bunch of filler.

And I agree with Toox's comment that if you haven't read other books in the series, there's little done to provide readers with continuing characters' backstory.

Bit of a slow start, and took a while to understand the back stories of the characters as I haven't read the other books in the series. But once it got going it was ok. Not sure I would read the other books in the series, though.

Another great read from Catherine Coulter. This book is a page turner from start to finish. Lots of intrigue. I really enjoy reading every one of her books.
