With four back-to-back best-selling suspense thrillers to her credit, Catherine Coulter has earned an ever-growing following, thanks to her vivid characters and satisfyingly unpredictable plots. Now Coulter delivers a novel predicated on a baffling threat, fueled by a hatred dating back a generation.

Political speechwriter Becca Matlock is at the top of her professional game, working for the re-election campaign of New York's popular governor, when she receives the first phone call: Stop sleeping with the governor or I'll kill him.

Although Becca isn't sleeping with the governor, the menacing ultimatums persist. The police suddenly stop believing her, even after the stalker murders an innocent person to prove his point.

When the governor is shot in the neck, Becca flees for the safety of coastal Maine, choosing to hide not only from the stalker but also from the authorities. For sanctuary, she goes to Riptide, the home of a college friend - where she soon finds herself at even greater risk. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy Robinson | 2/12/2014

    " Enjoyed the majority of the book. Very disappointed in the final thoughts of some of the storyline. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl Beran | 2/11/2014

    " The main character, Becca, is being pursued by someone who calls her and says he is her "boyfriend". Her mother has passed away and she thinks her father died a long time ago, but in fact, he is deep cover - being a super special agent in the international intelligence community. This stalker is a very wealthy ex-Russian intelligence agent who is out to avenge his wife's death at the hands of Becca's father. Or so we think.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennie | 1/15/2014

    " A decent thriller. Didn't make me rush out to find another book by the same author, but I probably will check out some of her other books eventually. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Katrina Bergherm | 12/27/2013

    " The story could have been good, but the writing was horrible. I kept reading...for whatever reason...only to be disgusted by the cheesiness of the whole thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nyss | 11/20/2013

    " She's an okay writer. Her books are not something that I would want to buy brand new but they're entertaining enough for me to read more of her works. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pam Willey | 10/30/2013

    " This was a pretty good book, but had too much bad language. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bookworm | 10/21/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eydie | 8/6/2013

    " I like this particular "FBI" series of Ms Coulter. Always a bit predictable, but always a good, fast read. I was half right about the ending which surprised me (I usually can guess half way through!) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janene | 3/30/2013

    " I like to throw in a Catherine Coulter's mystery to my rotation of books, but this one seemed a little off for her. It seems like some parts of the book were not written whole-heartedly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 3/14/2013

    " I love all her FBI Thrillers....I have not been let down yet "

    " pitiful dialogue "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 8/9/2012

    " Interesting story. Becca and Adam were a good couple. I figured out what was happening and was just waiting to see why. Love that Sherlock and Dillion were in this book to see what was going on in their lives. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carolee Horning | 7/28/2012

    " Not impressed. Not realistic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karin | 7/18/2012

    " It's been a long time since I read the first few books in this series, but I didn't feel like I missed a thing. It's a light read and has moments of suspense and mystery that I so enjoy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 T. M. | 10/28/2011

    " Interesting, and I enjoyed the showdown at end between Becca and guy who killed the woman found in the wall. Good, but not the best of the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kissa | 4/29/2011

    " I finished this one this evening. This was a great read. I thought I knew what the twist would be at the end- but I was wrong. I hope to see more of these characters in the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susannecahill | 3/9/2011

    " Pretty good read but could have been shorter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 9/20/2010

    " Wow! So many twists and turns, suspenseful doesn't even begin to describe. Very captivating. An edge-of-your-seat thriller. A quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 9/5/2010

    " Typical for this author with this genre, but I really enjoyed it. There was a nice twist that I wasn't expecting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alison | 7/16/2010

    " I didn't finish this book. It was good but I think I just wasn't in the mood for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Craig | 4/19/2010

    " I liked the book on the whole, but did not like the fact that two books tried to co exist in the same book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 4/4/2010

    " Though this is and FBI series written by the author, the books so far are very individual and there's just a placement of the two FBI agents involved from the beginning. This story involves a stalker with murder on his mind and a secondary murder which winds up involving the two main characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynde | 1/20/2010

    " This is the first book i have read in years and I couldn't put it down! I could not figure out who the "bad guy" was forever! I had a feeling, but kept going back and forth on who it could have been. AND I was so glad that her father did not die! Very interesting book. "
