Yale professor Dr. Edward Kender's father is undergoing chemotherapy when the supply of a critical accompanying drug suddenly runs out. Unwilling to accept the drug company's disingenuous excuse of production line problems, Dr. Kender hires private investigator Erin Pulaski to prove that something more sinister is going on at Schiffer Hartwin.

Meanwhile, in Maryland, married FBI agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich are investigating a rather unusual case: Senator David Hoffman is experiencing a ghostly apparition with possible malicious intent. The case is baffling, and Sherlock and Savich are not sure what to believe, even after witnessing the disturbing specter for themselves. They're no closer to cracking the case when a call comes in from Connecticut: A top foreign Schiffer Hartwin employee has been found murdered behind the drug company's U.S. headquarters.

Unbeknownst to the FBI, Erin Pulaski had uncovered a bombshell in her investigation: The Culovort shortage is set to bring in a windfall profit in excess of two billion dollars. Upon learning of the murder, Erin is certain it has something to do with her findings, but she risks exposing herself by coming forward. As the feds move in, the case becomes even more complicated for Erin, since the murder of a foreign national on federal land can mean only that the pharmaceutical house has a secret of epic proportions-one it would do anything to keep hidden.

Fast-paced. Holds you on the edge of your seat. Easy to follow the characters. Catherine's chapters are short which lends itself to remembering who the characters are and what they were doing the last time they were mentioned. Great book.

Catherine Coulter is awesome! I love her FBI series and have read all of them. This one was great as usual!

Very satisfying. If you like the previous books, you will enjoy this one.

Three chapters on one group of people, then a sudden change to another, and then another change. It is to be supposed that it will all be drawn together in time, but it didn't happen as far as I read.

I just love this FBI series. Of course, Coulter is one of my favorite authors who I met first when she was writing romance novels. This series has just enough romance to satisfy my romantic side. I can't wait for the next book.

As with all of this series, this latest book introduces some new characters and brings back some older ones. There are a couple of interesting twists at the end of this easy read. A good addition to the series.
