Book Review: Enigma

Working with Agent Cam Wittier (Insidious) and New York-based former Special Forces agent Jack Cabot, they must race against the clock to catch an international criminal and solve the enigma of the man called John Doe.

When Agent Dillon Savich saves Kara Moody from a seemingly crazy man, he doesn’t realize he will soon be facing a scientist who wants to live forever and is using “John Doe” to help him. But when the scientist, Lister Maddox, loses him, he ups the stakes and targets another to take his experiments to the next level.

It’s a race against time literally as Savich and Sherlock rush to stop him and save both present and future victims of his experiments. In the meantime, Cam Wittier and Jack Cabot must track a violent criminal through the Daniel Boone National Forest. When he escapes through a daring rescue, the agents have to find out who set his escape in motion and how it all ties into the murder of Mia Prevost, the girlfriend of the president’s Chief of Staff’s only son, Saxton Hainny. It’s international intrigue at the highest levels and they know they have to succeed or national security is compromised.

As much as I love crime drama and romantic suspense, I am not sure how it is that I have managed to never read a book by Ms. Coulter.  Especially as she is considered to be the Queen of this genre.  

The book was well written with a wonderful blend of suspense leavened with a dash of humor so that the reader can catch their breath.  I feel that I was able to get to know the main characters rather well which really impressed me considering that ENIGMA is the twenty-first book in this series.  Too many authors by this point in the series tend to slack off of the characters assuming that the readers already know them well.  I

In fact, I have to give huge kudos to Ms. Coulter on just how well this book stands on its own.  I do now want to read her back story but I didn't find it necessary to enjoy this book.   I do feel that any of my readers that haven't been introduced to this series will still enjoy this book. And the followers of this series will love this new addition.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
