200 Word Review
I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book so I could give an honest review.
Back in 1996, The Cove, the 1st story in Catherine Coulter’s FBI Thriller series was published. The 23rd book, Labyrinth was recently published. In the series, readers have been introduced to FBI thrillers with recurring characters. From what I have read about the series, the main characters are Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock, a husband and wife team who are FBI agents.
Although the series has been on my “want to read” list for many years, I have never read any books from the series. When given the opportunity to review Labyrinth, I jumped at the chance. I usually read the rest of the series before reviewing a book, but Labyrinth is the 23rd book in the series, so I decided to forgo my usual routine and read just the one book.
Labyrinth could stand alone as a novel. The story was interesting and easy to follow. The characters were likable and well developed. Reading the earlier novels would help with understanding some of the references but it is not necessary.
I will continue reading the series with the next book but will keep the earlier books on my “to read” list and try to catch up on the series.
