Catherine Coulter: Nemesis

Disappointing mixed up thriller
This book starts with a bang but goes astray from then on.  This is an "FBI Thriller" featuring agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock.They are married and Savich is Sherlock's boss.

This time, they are not working together as Sherlock gets personally involved in a preventing a terrorist attack at JFK Airport when she is on her way back to DC after a conference. Sherlock remains on the case which gets nasty and builds to a crescendo when the person behind the terrorist attack tries to kill her.

At the same time, Savich back in DC gets involved in a couple of connected murder cases where victims are stabbed with ceremonial knives associated with witchcraft. The murderers claim that the don't recall the stabbings and the finger is pointed at the local clan of witches.

The first story wasn't too bad but was a bit unbelievable - 3 stars. The second story was totally unbelievable - 2 stars. IMHO all of the characters, including the main ones, were pretty cardboard and uninspiring.

I haven't read this series before and I doubt that I will go out of my way to read any others in the series.
