There were too many plot inconsistencies; and I did not like the writer’s style, especially the corny dialogue – people do not realistically talk to each other the way she portrays them, especially small children. The plot twists were unbelievable. There was also a series of endings and not one big one which tied everything togeth I thought I would try another Catherine Coulter book as I did not like the 1st one I read The Cove and gave her another chance. There was also a series of endings and not one big one which tied everything together.
The plot is this: Sam Kettering, a six year old boy, is kidnapped – he escapes blibdside he is found running across a road with his kidnappers in pursuit by Katie Benedict, Sheriff of Jessboro, Tennessee and her five year old daughter Keeley. The kidnappers try again. Why do the kidnappers want this little boy so badly? The investigation leads everyone to a charismatic, intense evangelist, Reverend Sooner McCamy, and his totally loyal wife, Elsbeth.
Katie falls in love with Miles. Someone burns down her house in a third kidnapping attempt. There is a subplot with the Savich team searching for a math teacher serial killer and a really minor subplot of a woman stalking Dillon in a health club. I would not recommend this book. View all 4 comments. Jun 09, Tracy rated it it was ok. I think Catherine Coulter is just not my style.
The story is good enough, but she adds in other stuff I’m not interested in – like a weird coultsr room. Plus, it’s the same old mystery-writer’s formula: How can enough people read these mysteries cztherine and again and not realize they’re enjoyin I think Catherine Coulter is just not my style.
How can enough people read these mysteries again and again and not realize they’re enjoying a checklist? I used to read Coulter waaay long ago when she wrote historical romances, but I stopped reading her because I had pretty much grow out of that style of book and her writing was very much “old school” romance novel.
But after she went ctherine writing contemporary thrillers like this I picked her up again. I liked generally but for some reason my overall interest in her petered out.
So I saw this one as an audiobook and decided, what the heck. I needed something to listen to on a long commute and got I used to read Coulter waaay long ago when she wrote historical romances, but I stopped reading her because I had pretty much grow out of that style of book and her writing was very much “old school” romance novel.
I needed something to listen to on a long commute and got carherine out. In this 8th book of Coulter’s FBI thiller series, a young boy, Sam Kettering is kidnapped from his home and taken blindsiee a small cabin in the Tennessee mountains. During a storm he manages to escape and run into fortuitously the sheriff of the small town of Jessboro, Katie Benedict. Katie and her daughter, Keeley, had been driving along when they see Sam running out of the woods with his kidnappers in mad pursuit.
Katie manages to pick up Sam, wound one of the kidnappers and get Sam away. Soon is becomes clear that Sam was kidnapped for reasons other than money as the kidnappers continue to try to get at Sam even while he is surrounded by the sheriff, a slew of deputies and a bunch of FBI agents.
There is a B-plot surrounding a math teacher serial killer case that Savith and Sherlock are pursuing as well as a very, very extremely superfluous minor D-plot of a va-va-voomy gym-fly who keeps putting the moves on Savitch.
Also, since Coulter has her roots in romance, Miles and Katie end up getting together. Second, the reading performance: The audiobook was read ably by Sandra Burr. Burr has a beautiful voice, rich and nicely inflected. She does a pretty good job in trying to blindsidde the various players through altering her voice.
Blindside | Catherine Coulter Suspense Thriller author FBI Contemporary
There are only two really off-putting datherine for me. Burr’s voice is almost too feminine, too soft for my vision of Katie. In the book, Katie comes off as a steely eyed, bad-ass. The voice for Katie seems to sweet, imo. I gave this three stars which I think it might be a teensy bit generous. For the most part it is engaging and I did enjoy listening to it. However, I had some real plotting problems. For instance, the adults insisted on keeping Sam blindsjde the area where they knew the kidnappers and the danger still was because he had “bonded with Keeley” and they didn’t want to separate the vlindside.
Why not relocate him to a safe house far away from the threat? Take Keeley along if the bond was so deep after just blinfside days. Also, the ultimate motive for the kidnapping was just Okay, so we get why the person who wanted Sam orchestrated the kidnapping in the first place.
What doesn’t really wash is why the hired kidnappers insisted on continually going after Sam even while he was surrounded by so much law enforcement. The relentlessness of the kidnappers was seemingly all out of proportion to what they could expect as a reward for doing the dirty work.

As hardened cooulter, in the face of so much law, they should have cut and run. But they kept coming. Well, my imaginings as the reader for why they were so determined to get Sam for the person who hired them were so much more dire and dangerous than the book eventually lays out. And finally, the bad guys were like the terminators One second they’ve been beaten into oblivion and then the next they are running spryly away.
Or they’ve been knocked out by a car wreck but manage to wiggle out just before the car blows up unseen by scads of watching law enforcement. Really, why not just let them dematerialize in front of everyone it would be just about as credible? Ninth book in the series, and it was no way as good as the first four. Truly, I was not impressed. The characters, except for Sam, blindsidf really unoriginal.
I didn’t like the plot at all – it still made no sense.

The only thing I liked was the setting. Seems it’s a really beautiful spot to see. I felt absolutely nothing between Katie and Miles except comfortability. Sure, they were attracted to each other, but I felt no sparks whatsoever. Like ending up together was inevitable. Back in Ninth book in the series, and it was no way as good blindsid the first four. Back in May when I stopped reading, if figured I’d give it some time before getting back to the series after a few disappointments.
Now I wonder if I should read them to get them over with, or if I should way until I’m running out of things to read. Sure, the action was great, but that about about the only good thing about the whole situation.
That and the setting Sep 29, Denise Anderson rated it really liked it.
Jun 02, Charlene added it. A long book, but worth reading.
I did guess one of the surprises in the story, but that just made couletr proud of myself and didn’t take away from the story at all. Would like to read more of Catherine Coulter. Jan 09, Sharon rated it really liked it. Cathsrine was a very good book with wonderful characters – the Sheriff and the children were my favorites- and a very exciting story line.
My criticism is that the ending was just too perfect.
