“There’s a fine line between support and stalking and let’s all stay on the right side of that.”----Joss WhedonCatherine Coulter, #1 New York Times bestselling author, pens a gripping pot-boiler in her twentieth FBI Thriller series, called Insidious that unfolds two mysteries surrounding an attempt to murder an aged social icon and owner of a group of million-dollar industries in Washington which is investigated by the married FBI duo and another surrounding the serial killings of five a [...]
Insidious (FBI Thriller Series #20) by Catherine Coulter is an okay read. I liked it but just felt it could have been so much better. There are two mysteries happening at the same timeSavich and Sherlock are looking into the possible poisoning of one of his grandmother's old friends and FBI Agent Cam Wittier and Detective Daniel are working together in California trying to track down a vicious serial killer that is killing young and beautiful movie stars.There are some good partsloved the intera [...]
Catherine Coulter has written yet another well-paced, interesting thriller, this time where FBI agents Shepard and Savich are trying to figure out which family member of an elderly businesswoman is trying to poison her and steal her money and corporate fortunes, while Cam is off in LA tracking a serial killer. I like her writing because it's detailed enough without ever getting super gory. We're parceled out information at a steady rate as the detectives work to solve the case and the twists jus [...]
Insidious by Catherine Coulter is a 2016 Gallery Books publication. I was provided a copy of this book as an XOXpert the official street team of XOXO After Dark, and Edelweiss. This twentieth installment in Catherine Coulter’s FBI series takes on two separate cases, one featuring the popular husband and wife team, Savich and Sherlock, who must determine who is trying to kill an elderly socialite and an up and coming FBI superstar, Cam Whittier, takes on a serial killer in Los Angles who is tar [...]
I know some readers will disagree but I was so relieved that this book broke just a bit from the more recent formula. You know, Sherlock and Savich bring in a new investigator who falls in love with someone (usually on the team), there's paranormal, crazy-pants antics and everyone ends up with an HEA. Some of that happens in "Insidious," but it's not the absolute same well-worn path.Sherlock and Savich are called in when Venus Rasmussen, famous eighty-year-old billionaire entrepreneur, suspects [...]
Conscientiously read to page 100, then skimmed to page 200 before stopping. It's so difficult to give up on C.C. because seeing her name on a book cover reminds me of hours of reading pleasure of her back list (up to Split Second and not including her early historical where Graelam(?) the rapist in one book is the "hero" in a subsequent title). During the peak of her writing prowess, splurging to buy her new releases asap because waiting for a library copy was too torturous for my need to read C [...]
This started out with a bang & slowly went downhill
* I won this book in a giveaway. I will read and review the book when I receive it.*
Review originally posted at All Books Considered: 2.5 STARSAfter 20 books, I am officially breaking up with this series. While this 20th book, Insidious, was better than book 19, either the books have changed or I have changed and that magic that made me look forward to the latest book in this series every summer is gone. I think the series has gone on too long such that it is no longer is fresh and new (kind of running out of ideas). Specifically as to this book, what I really noticed was that [...]
Catherine Coulter's INSIDIOUS is fast moving mystery thriller with surprises on every page. The storyline comes alive as if readers are watching a motion picture. Her characters are well developed and believable. Coulter's unbelievable ending will give her readers goosebumps.
GREAT STORYI love all Catherine Coulter books in fact, I have them all, this book was great, the story was great. I hope when you read it you will love it like I did
First, I would like to express my thanks to GoodReads Give-Aways, Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books Publications, with a special thank you going out to marketing assistant MacKenzie Hickey, who made my day.Insidious is Coulter’s 20th FBI thriller, and she knows her stuff quite well by now, and this shines in her writing. Insidious again features Coulter’s staple FBI agents, an inseparable team, Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock, who are now married. However, there is an interesting twist [...]
What a thrilling novel! I love this FBI series by Catherine Coulter. It has yet to get old. Saving and Sherlock are on yet another case for a family friend whom is being poisoned will they figure out who it is before they die? Read to find out. Saviches teammate is on the west cost trying to find the Starlit Slasher, a serial killer killing beautiful actresses tragic! Cam teams up with Daniel Montoya to break through this case. Many dips and twists I was intrigued throughout the story. So glad t [...]
Insidious is a smart and calculated thriller that will lure you in with serial killers and murderous plots. Then keep you on the edge of your seat and guessing whodunit until the very last page.In the twentieth installment of Coulter’s FBI Thriller series, the reader gets two mysteries in one. Agents Savich and Sherlock are on the hunt for the person who is trying to murder a powerful matriarch of the Rasmussen family, Venus, and Agent Cam Wittier is brought into the search for a serial killer [...]
I'm really bummed by this book. It is really hard when an author removes an element from the plot that you have grown to really love. Catherine Coulter is following a trend she set several books back in that she has removed to romance element from her plot. I really miss it and am devastated that it's gone, probably for good. Insidious, as a mystery, is a good book. It delivers on a two front mystery and the characters are well drawn and likeable, but it is so hard to review the book knowing tha [...]
Dillon Savich & Lacey Sherlock, husband and wife FBI agents have again met the challenge, but not without losing several beautiful, young aspiring actresses. There are many serial suspects with primary investigative focus on doctors, movie producers and a putzy stalker who is enamored with one of the female targets. While this investigation is going on, there is another story within this story.Within a wealthy and powerful societal family, someone has attempted to murder Venus Rasmussen, the [...]
Savich and Sherlock, FBI agents, are at work trying to figure out who is trying to poison the matriarch of a powerful family in Washington DC. Agent Cam Wittier is in Malibu on the West Coast chasing a serial killer who targets aspiring actresses. The book goes back and forth between the two mysteries. Frankly it wore me out a little. I liked Cam's story better, lost interest in the family drama and the too cute Savich story. Yes, Venus, the 86 year old is a neat character, but Coulter's habit o [...]
3.5 stars It sounds a little odd to say a thriller is comfort food but that's exactly what this book was, and the series as a whole is. I know exactly what I'm getting, I know I'll like the story, and I know it will be a an entertaining read. Coulter doesn't break any new ground with this story, sticking to her series formula but with some minor changes. There are two mysteries and they both kept me guessing. Each had twists and red herrings and I didn't succeed in solving either of the mysterie [...]
I can't believe this is my 20th adventure with two of my very favorite characters, husband and wife FBI Special Agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock. As always, the dialogue is crisp and witty and the serial killer is clever and diabolical. There are two separate investigations going on with two separate teams and, yet, you have no problem at all following both. With other authors I can figure out who the murderer(s) is/are well before the book ends. I am always stumped and surprised with Cat [...]

I knew this book was part of a series when I chose it but I didn't realise it was book #20! That had me a little worried as I hadn't read the author before and starting a series at the end hardly ever works out. However, I was wrong to worry. For a mystery/thriller, this has a unique style, something more common to TV shows than books. The book contains two distinct and separate cases involving different Agents with only very minimal contact as the lower-ranked Agent occasionally checks in with [...]
Insidious has parallel storylines running through it. One is to do with Venus Rasmussen, an 86 year old business tycoon, who after a few episodes of bad stomach reactions has determined that she is being poisoned by arsenic. The second storyline involves a serial killer whose victims are Hollywood starlets. Both cases felt like a CSI episode where the experts jump to conclusions that are magically backed up by forensic techniques. Unfortunately, I don't like CSI and this book was not a match for [...]
Received as an ARC from the publisher. At first I felt that the conversations between the police officers were stilted. As a retired Juvenile Court Probation Officer, I knew many detectives and they just didn't talk in that style. The plot of a serial killer targeting young actresses was compelling. There was too much exposition between police officers toward the end; it took pages to explain who the perpetrator was. More action, less talk.
Yet another rock-solid outing in Coulter’s FBI series, Insidious is reliable comfort food for thriller fans everywhere.FBI agents Savich and Sherlock must discover who is trying to murder Venus Rasmussen, a powerful, wealthy society icon. They soon find out that the danger may be closer than expected.Check out the rest of my review at BestThrillers
A great continuation of the FBI series featuring Sherlock and Savich - love the chemistry between these two, plus a new character within the FBI - Cam Wittier - who is sent off to find a serial killer on the west coast that is murdering specific actresses!Both stories are really fast paced and the reader is kept guessing on both accounts with a red herring here and there.2 thumbs up and 5 stars for this book!
I enjoyed this addition to the FBI series. Two mysteries for the price of one. I appreciated the addition of the second mystery to keep Savich and Sherlock involved. I partly solved the one murder,but the other mystery was a surprise.
Just okay.First time I read a book written by this author, and knew it was the 20th book in this series. Two different cases, in two different cities. As mystery/thriller different style, and narrators one male and one female. For me it was slow going and chatty.
From the very beginning of this book in the series, I already know there is one thing that is a disappointment. Just like every previous book in the series, we have two new characters who, very obviously, will be attracted to one another. My cynicism might be because I am reading the entire series all at one time. If you are not doing the same thing, I suggest you read some things from different genres, while you are reading this Siri's. Catherine Coulter seems to follow this pattern throughout [...]
This is the first novel I’ve read by Catherine Coulter, a prolific American author published since the early 1980s. She writes historical and contemporary romances, and suspense thrillers. Insidious is her twentieth novel in her FBI series, following the lives and careers of Dillon Savich and Lacy Sherlock, a pair of agents in an unlikely marriage. Even more unlikely is that none of the characters comment on Sherlock’s silly last name, despite its obvious connection with crime solving. The s [...]
Second Read: It's been a long time since I've read a Coulter with Savich & Sherlock. I really like her writing and the characters in these books. I decided to read it again as I didn't quite "get" the story. The second time made a lot more sense.Several years ago, I read a book she wrote on Jack the Ripper. She has a new one that I am going to read soon. There has been a special on TV about a Jack that was in the US. Will be curious how this guy compares with that one. There have been many m [...]
