Booklist Review
In the middle of the night, a man invades the Georgetown home of FBI Special Agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich, targeting their five-year-old son, Sean, and escaping after a potentially deadly confrontation. Two days later a man in a rowboat on a Maryland lake strikes his passenger with an oar and dumps the body overboard, a murder witnessed by Police Chief Ty Christie from her lakeside house. The perpetrator in both cases turns out to be Victor Nesser, recently escaped from a mental institution. The cases become intertwined when the rowboat is discovered to have been rented by a FBI agent on a holiday; after nearly killing the agent, Nesser stole the boat. Then, as the lake is dragged, skulls and bones turn up, signaling either the work of a serial killer or gross violations by the local crematorium, with the only clue a gold belt buckle bearing a Star of David. Action is nonstop in this latest entry in Coulter's FBI Thriller series (after Enigma, 2017). Perfect reading for the beach and beyond.--Michele Leber Copyright 2018 Booklist
