Publisher's Summary

The newest entry in the sizzling international thriller series featuring Nicholas Drummond, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter. Freshly minted FBI agent Nicholas Drummond is barely out of his Quantico training when he and his partner, Mike Caine, are called to investigate a stabbing on Wall Street. Their investigation, however, yields more questions than answers. It quickly becomes clear that the victim, John Pearce, was more than the naval historian and antiquities dealer he appeared to be. What Drummond doesn’t know is that buying and selling rare books was Pearce’s cover, and that he had devoted his life to discovering the whereabouts of a missing World War I U-boat concealing a stash of gold bullion, and an unexpected surprise that only raises more questions. When Drummond and Caine find both of Pearce’s adult children have disappeared, the case assumes a new sense of urgency. The FBI agents know their best lead lies in the victim’s cryptic final words— - "The key is in the lock." But what key? What lock? The search for Adam and Sophia Pearce takes them on an international manhunt, which threatens to run them afoul of an eccentric billionaire industrialist with his own plans not only for the lost gold, but the creation of a weapon unlike anything the world has ever seen.

Brit in the FBI #2 makes you look forward to #3!!!

Would you listen to The Lost Key again? Why?

Yes, I would. I really enjoyed this book which integrated action, dialogue, intrigue, historical information, and humor. Narrators were great!

What other book might you compare The Lost Key to and why?

Book 1 flowed directly into Book 2 with more than just storyline. It continued with the same humor and drama. I enjoy the books of Catherine Coulter and find similarities with those of David Baldacci. There's substance to their entertaining and thoughtful books.

What about Renee Raudman and MacLeod Andrews ’s performance did you like?

They are always fantastic. Two of my favorites.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I definitely chuckled several times. The wit and humor were integrated into the story very well and performed by the narrators expertly. You could actually hear the interchanges among the characters as if you were there.

Any additional comments?

I hope that this progresses into a multi-book series.

Gratuitous S&M, really?

Would you try another book from Catherine Coulter and J. T. Ellison and/or Renee Raudman and MacLeod Andrews ?

Perhaps, but they will need less cardboard characterizations in the book.

What was most disappointing about Catherine Coulter and J. T. Ellison ’s story?

The main villain was one dimensional and the whole gratuitous S&M side of him was a bore.

Have you listened to any of Renee Raudman and MacLeod Andrews ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have and they did an excellent job with a story and characters that could have been stronger.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?


Any additional comments?

This book had a lot of potential that never really developed. The characters are interesting but were portrayed as stereotypes which wasn't necessary. The story was interesting but because the characters were so predictable the story became rather predictable and uninteresting.
