Brace yourself for a sizzling-fast beach read guaranteed to send cold shivers down your spine. Catherine Coulter's pulse-pounding Blindside is an exciting dip into the adventures of married FBI agents Sherlock and Savich, who in this outing are merely supporting characters for the real lead couple, Miles Kettering and Katie Benedict. Katie's the Jessborough, Tennessee, sheriff leading the search for kidnappers who've snatched Miles' 6-year-old son Sean from his Washington D.C. area home and brought him to the remote mountain town. Miles assumes his past FBI work has made his son a target, but he discovers the danger has more personal roots. Coulter liberally laces the suspense with unexpected motivations and characters you just know are B-A-D. The romance is just as fast-paced as the danger. The couple marry in haste, but the danger just won't let go, as the two learn that being blindsided can be good for the heart, yet hazardous for the body.
