Could not put it down!

Sherlock and Savich meet - ah what a team

This is the story where Dillon and Sherlock first meet. If you have not read/listened to this one yet it is a must in the FBI series by Catherine Coulter. Lacy Sherlock has decided to become and FBI agent after a terrifying issue in her past makes her afraid to even go out of the house. She decided that if she does nothing else she will find the person who killed her sister and have vengeance.Enter Savich who Sherlock bests in one of their first meetings which intrigues him quite a bit. Then he requests her in his unit at the FBI.She finds this is the perfect opportunity to look for the string killer and at the first opportunity lies to Dillon and takes off for Boston to track him down. At the same time she has been doing well in the unit and helping to catch killers.Her sisters old husband also seems to be a bit to infatuated with her and this causes a lot of tension. As well as her dysfunctional family.I really enjoyed this story!


This book is my favorite out of the entire FBI series. It has to be the most imaginative one (but only by a little) Sherlock and Savich are a great couple and you have to wonder what kind of mind would come up with that plot and how to pull off everything so it was believeable for the most part. The Maze, as logic would have it is about a criminal who ingeniusly uses mazes as his calling card. Not only did this book keep me on the edge of my seat but it kept me turing pages faster and faster to see what would happen next. I also finished the book with such a happy and warm feeling. If you have to be up early the next morning DO NOT start this book just before bed. I can guarantee you will still be up reading when the sun comes up. I was!!! Catherine keep up the excellent work, I am looking forward to your next book, whatever it might be.

A true thriller!

Dillon is the head of the FBI's CAU. With his computer MAX, he gathers information to crack crimes. Lacey Sherlock entered the FBI to hunt down the serial killer who murdered her stepsister seven years before. This killer chose women who used foul language and bad mouthed their husbands. He would hit them over the head, take them to an abandoned warehouse, and make them search their way through a maze. When they reached the center, instead of being set free, he would punish the woman by multiple stab wounds and then cut out her tongue. Dillon chose Lacey straight out of training because she was able to kill him in the final exam for the job. She had the instinct just right for the job. This is a real puzzler and a real page-turner!

The best.

I read all of Catherine Coulter's contemporary novels in this series except The Edge. It is a good thing I read this one first! I did not like the other two at all, but from the moment I started reading The Maze I was hooked. It is an incredibley good book and second in my list of favorites only to Jeffery Deaver's The Bone Collector. I liked Sherlock a lot, she is probably my favorite female character. However, it was Savich that made the book remarkable. You can't help but fall in love with Savich, with his karate and his country-western-singing and his easyness with Sherlock. Not to mention his dreamy blue eyes.. LOL Savich is in fact so memorable that I am going to name my Siamese cat after him when I get it. You have to admit, also, that Dillon is a great name. I like Catherine Coulter's style of writing in this book, it is unusual but good. The novel is very suspenseful and has a climatic ending. The tension between Savich and Sherlock as their relationship developes from work to friendship to love is intense. I loved this book, and I just wish the other two were as good...

One of the best books I have EVER read!

My mother got this book out of the library for me. I had only read Catherine Coulter's historical romances & thought that those were the only type of book she wrote. When I got the Maze, I was stunned. It is one of the best comtemporary thrillers I have EVER read - and I read all the time, I have read thousands of books & the Maze rates up there w/ the best of them! The suspense kept me on the edge of my seat, to use a hackneyed phrase. :) I adored Savich & Sherlock, they have become two of my favorite characters & I hope Coulter continues to develop them in future books. I was pleased to see them return in "The Target". Catherine, your thrillers are AMAZING, please keep them coming! So many women can write the historical romances but not many people can write a thriller as well as you can! I would highly reccomend this book to everyone!
