MY REVIEW OF “ENIGMA” by CATHERINE COULTER
Another sleepless night for me, since it was so hard to stop reading “ENIGMA” by Catherine Coulter. The Genre for this novel is Mystery and Thriller. This is the 21st novel in Catherine Coulter’s series, and I have to confess that this is the first time I have read a novel by this author, as well as a novel in this series. I intend to revisit the other books in this series. I didn’t have a difficult time following the characters or story. The timeline of this story is set mostly in the present.
The author describes the characters as complex and complicated. There is a contrast between the “good ” characters from the FBI, and the “evil” or “bad” criminals. The story has different layers, twists and turns and adventure. There are two mysteries in this novel, where the FBI is involved. Agents Savich, Sherlock, Jack Cabot and Cam Wittier are involved in solving the unusual crimes.
One mystery is an international one and involves the son of a Presidential top advisor. There are robberies, and murders, and intense intrigue.
The other mystery involves a strange man in a coma known as John Doe. He is considered an “Enigma” because of strange drugs and needle marks found in his system.There is also a kidnapping of a newborn baby and more murders.
This novel has risks, intrigue, danger, mystery, thrills, chills, and is captivating and I would recommend this for any reader that enjoys Mystery and Thrillers. I received a copy of this ARC for my honest review. Be warned: This could keep you up at night!!
