Nemesis by Catherine Coulter

Nemesis (FBI Thriller, #19)Book Description:
The next high-octane thriller in the FBI series featuring Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock from # 1 New York Times–bestselling author Catherine Coulter.

When Special Agent Lacey Sherlock foils a terrorist attack at JFK airport, she thinks her job is done and turns the reins over to the New York FBI. But stopping the grenade-carrying crazy was only the beginning. Another plot unfolds nearly simultaneously with a bomb at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The terrorist at JFK refuses to speak to anyone but Sherlock. She heads back with counterterrorist Special Agent Cal McLain to try to get him to talk. 

Meanwhile, Savich—with the help of Agent Griffin Hammersmith—has his hands full trying to track an elusive murderer who looks like a Hollywood Dracula. When Dracula’s attempts to kill Savich collide with Sherlock’s terrorist case, very strange things happen.

Who is really behind the bombing attack at St. Patrick’s? How does Savich’s mysterious killer fit into Sherlock’s terrorism investigation? Savich and Sherlock race against the clock, as more lives are in danger with every passing minute.

My Thoughts:
I love Catherine Coulter's books.  Sherlock is on her way back from a job and stops an attack.  Stopping the man with the grenade earns her respect and a lot of paperwork.  At the same time, there is another attack at St. Patrick's Cathedral.  Sherlock is brought back in because the man she stopped will only talk to her and they need to find answers fast!  Savich is having his own issues to deal with in tracking down a killer.  The two cases combine and both Sherlock and Savich are in grave danger.
If you've read Coulter's earlier books, you've likely been introduced to Sherlock and Savich.  This one had plenty of action and suspense.  I got a little creeped out by Savich's dreams but it was awesome at the same time.  I loved how kick butt Sherlock was throughout.  The secondary characters are wonderfully written and I want to know more about the 'top dog' that Sherlock worked with!
Absolutely a 5/5  for me.  
Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book (via netgalley).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
