THE SIXTH DAY
By Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison
It is difficult to think of anything more exciting than “The Covert Eyes Team” that writers Coulter and Ellison have created. And after delving into this newest title in A Brit in the FBI series, that fact goes from difficult to virtually impossible.
People in the higher echelon of the political arena are dying, one right after the other. But it is only when the German Vice Chancellor loses his pulse, and a drone is seen hovering over the scene, that panic starts to arise and special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine are called in to stop what looks to be a serious serial killer.
Utilizing the skills of Dr. Isabella Marin (who just so happens to be an expert when it comes to the twin languages of the indecipherable Voynich Manuscript and cryptophasia), the special agents find themselves focusing on one, Roman Ardelean. This is a man who already has an interesting past, to say the least. He is a direct descendant of Vlad Dracul III, an infamous man who became known as Dracula. Turns out that Roman believes somewhere lurking in the words of this Voynich Manuscript is the key to showing him how to stop his twin brother from dying. But not only does he wish to murder anyone who gets in his way, he also has a list of people he believes have betrayed him and will do anything he can to take them down, even if it means blowing up all of London to do just that.
The agents, the doctor, and MI5 must stop this man in his tracks, and with Coulter and Ellison once again pairing up to create this tension-filled, thrilling plot, readers will be hooked until they come to the ultimate, unforgettable conclusion. One day feels too long to wait for another Brit in the FBI mystery.
