Nov 20, Kat rated it really liked it Shelves: Catherine Coulter always writes a well-paced crime thriller. This book, like others in the series, features two separate mysteries that teams of detectives are working to solve. In one, an FBI agent’s sister returned home from a party only to be attacked in her apartment. Untangling what’s really going on in her small college music town turns out to be quite a mess.
In the other mystery, a body is found at the Lincoln Memorial with no clues about the killer. Coulter’s pacing and catheribe is Catherine Coulter always writes a well-paced crime thriller. Carherine pacing and storytelling is always topnotch and I always enjoy seeing how Savich and Sherlock will untangle the latest mess! Aug 31, Michael rated it it was ok. Bombshell by Catherine Coulter had the feeling of a very amateurish novel by an author who is still seeking her voice.
With characters like Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith and his chiseled body and tight jeans, this book came dangerously close to being supermarket-checkout-lane drivel. But thankfully, it never had any sexy-times if you know what I mean and it tried very hard to imitate the writings of Tom Clancy. But seriously, Griffin Hammersmith? The obvious romantic interests, the very un-Clancy-like writing style, and somehow the author’s cutesie picture taking up the entire back side of the dust jacket, screamed that this was just a failed attempt at another “thrilling” FBI story.
Now this really bugged me, the story repeatedly mentioned how some mysterious person posted a picture of the murder victim to YouTube Coulter, YouTube is for videos. You can post pictures just about anywhere, but YouTube is for videos. Overall, I thought Bombshell had way too many characters and most of them were the good guys. So naturally, there was way too much friendly and annoying banter. But how was this supposed to be thrilling? It took 50 people to figure out who the killer was.
And why did the gang members choose Delsey’s apartment to kill undercover agent Anna’s partner? We know that because Delsey saw the dead body, the gang members were hunting her through the cathherine of the story. But why colter the gang members there in the first place? There was no connection at all. If they chose Delsey’s apartment at random- they made a terribly poor choice since Delsey’s brother happens to be none other than Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith with his chiseled abs and tight jeans, not to mention his psychic abilities no joke, he had psychic abilities to solve mysteries.
Unfortunately, Bombshell seemed very poorly written and transparent in that it couoter the author’s true passion, grocery-store romance novels. Perhaps I’m being too cruel in my estimation. But after struggling through this book, I really feel like Coulter hasn’t found her voice. Hopefully she’ll get there soon.
By the way, I’m not really sure why this was called ‘Bombshell.
View all 4 comments. Jul 11, Cardyn Brooks rated it it was ok Shelves: Bombshell is an overall disappointment because Catherine Coulter’s writing is usually more sophisticated. This book reads like C. Character chemistry is one of her signature writing strengths, and there’s zero chemistry between Griffin and his supposed love interest.
More shocking is the fact that there’s zero chemistry between Sherlock and Savich–even a few Sean exchanges don’t resurrect the engaging family dynamic from previous books. All the characters are wooden, one-dimens Bombshell is an overall disappointment because Catherine Coulter’s writing is usually more sophisticated.
All the characters are wooden, one-dimensional props. Too many different characters say, “Let me tell you. And there’s lots of dialogue; more dialogue than action. Jul 20, Jackie coulfer it it was ok. This was a marginal read at best.
It felt like Ms. Coulter was writing in her sleep. Or maybe playing with cardboard figures that she would move around on a table as the scene changed.
And 2 stars because I soldiered on and finished the whole thing even though it was a struggle. Jul 10, Dotti Elrick rated it really liked it. Bombshell started out coultsr bit slow for me but it sure picked up quickly. Once again we are thrown in the middle of two separate cases.
Catherinf interesting and intense. It is learned that Tommy’s grandfather was part of a huge scandal involving the Federal Reserve Bank, where lots of people lost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The first impression is that Tommy was killed as revenge against his catyerine.
A picture of Tommy taken shortly after his death turns up on You Tube, and it was uploaded from Stony’s computer, suddenly the investigation heads in another direction.
And proves that money truly is the root of all evil. The second storyline involves a new agent recently assigned to Dillon’s special unit in the Bureau. Griffin Hammersmith has been an agent working in the San Francisco field office. Savich and Sherlock worked with him on an earlier case and were very impressed with him. On his way to D. Before Griffin arrives, his “Trouble Magnet” of a sister is involved in a crime. She has been attacked in her apartment. When she wakes up in the hospital, she remembers there was a dead man in her bathtub and two Hispanic young men were there as well.
Delsey’s best friend Anna sets off Griffin’s alarms. He knows there is something more to her than just a struggling student and waitress. He’s very rarely wrong. As things start to unfold, it’s learned that rumors of a major drug smuggling gang are working somewhere in the area of Maestro.
And the main suspect is the visiting professor at the college.
Bombshell (FBI Thriller, #17) by Catherine Coulter
Rafael Salazar is a brilliant classical guitarist. He has been asked to do some teaching at Stanislaus by his twin brother, Dr. Twins who were separated at a very bombshelo age, one went with the mother and the other stayed with their father. This book starts out slowly, with lots of information gathering.
But it’s all vital to the outcome. It ends with a bang.
Both cases coming together at the same time, with lots of action, suspense and a few twists along the way. I loved re-visiting some of the characters from earlier books. This book can be read as a stand alone, but the whole series is fantastic Being back in Maestro, Griffin is working with the local sheriff, Dix and his FBI wife Ruth, who also works for Dillon.
