    3.5 fast moving starsThrow in some drones, falcons, evil twins related to Vlad Dracula, an ancient book that no one can read, and a former agent of M16 now with the FBI and his sidekick paramour agent, Michaela and you have what makes for an engaging fast paced read. I enjoyed this book even though it had many unbelievable segments that seemed a bit touching on the sci fi genre.Nicholas and Michaela are on the trial of a ruthless man, Ramon, who ...

    FBI special agents Michaela (Mike) Caine and Nicholas Drummond of The Brit in the FBI series are vacationing at Drummond’s family estate in England (of course it’s an estate), when they are asked to look into very strange assassinations and a ransomware attack on Drummond’s father’s company. As members of the FBI special Covert Eyes group they have special talents and resources and are tasked to go anywhere in the world where they are nee...

    Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.I love this series with its quirky, sy-fi plots and, most of all, the wonderful mystery/suspense plots. "The Sixth Day" more than lives up to the other books in this series. There are several plot lines thorough out the book. It seems at times that Mike and Nicholas left their renowned instincts at home and I loved this book all...

    Special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine are back again in Coulter’s “A Brit in the FBI” series after getting called in on a ransomeware attack and separately, the suspicious deaths of two high-level British politicians. I hadn’t heard of this series before but seeing J.T. Ellison’s name as collaborator got my attention. I so enjoy her writing. She along with Coulter? Jackpot! And indeed I was not disappointed.The chemistry a...

    THE SIXTH DAYI thoroughly enjoyed reading this book from beginning to end. It was full of adventure and no lack of excitement.The book is quite complex. Romanian lore, including Vlad Dracula, vampires, and the Voynich Manuscript, is interwoven with modern day warfare of drones, computer hacking, ransomware, and with a very unique use of falconry.Set in London, this the fifth in the series featuring FBI agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine....

    Mix in a dash of Dan Brown's DaVinci Code, a splash of James Patterson's Private and a whole lot of originality from two very talented co-authors and what do you get? A page-turner of history-linked chills, thrills and intrigue that will keep you engrossed from beginning to end. In fact, I highly recommend the entire "Brit in the FBI" series (this one, I believe, is the fifth).Primary characters and friends with benefits Nicholas Drummond and Mic...

    In this fifth book of the series we find Nicholas and Mike in London enjoying some much needed time off after their last escapade with some not so nice people. Mike seems to be recovering well and Nicholas is happy to spend some time with his grandfather helping him figure out some hacking problems his company is having. When dignitaries start dying Nicholas and Mike are called in to help figure out who is doing it, what is actually killing them,...

    The description made this sound like a very interesting book--spies, intrigue, ancient texts, even Dracula--but I had a very hard time getting through it. Perhaps all the threads didn't weave together well enough for me. There was a large team of operatives and I didn't feel engaged in their group dynamic. There was the back story of two twins from Romania, who were Dracula's brothers, along with several chapters from various time periods. There ...

    Love this series. While reading a fast-paced, adrenaline-filled book, I'm also getting educated about so many different things in our world! This book refers to Dracula and the book of "twin talk" - so very interesting. Lots of techno stuff - drones in particular (kind of scary), falcons and their training (love that part) - very smart birds!Regular characters appear again, on an adventure they will never forget!2 thumbs up and 4.5 stars (the "wo...

    In The Sixth Day (Gallery Books 2018), Book 5 in Coulter's popular Brit in the FBI series, the stars, Special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine are trying to take a much-overdue vacation, this one in England to see Nicholas' family. Before they even settle in, Nicholas' father asks him to help with a ransomware problem that has shut down his company computers and the FBI asks him (since he's already in England) to check out the suspici...

    The Sixth day Has everything readers have come to love from Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison. The characters are dynamic, the story is flawless with the mix of history, suspense, and intrigue.Reader will be caught up in The 6th day that won't realize they have been reading it non stop.While the story is a little over the top it will keep readers hooked with the amount knowledge these authors have on the subjects they present to the reader.Thank...

    I'm sorry to say this book is OK but not one of my favorites. It took me way to long to read the book for one thing. I continually put it down then came back to it a day or two later. I like the procedural and the characters. However, I never connected completely. I don't blame the author though. I believe part of the problem is because I started the series with book 5. Even though The Sixth Day is supposed to work as a standalone, and the crimin...

    Wow! This book was so scary in the idea that drones and hackers are in todays news. Like usual, the latest instalment in the Brit in the FBI series kept you at the edge of your seat from page 1. I really liked the history sections in the story; very interesting. I really love Mike and Nicholas; they are great characters. I love Adam, he is fabulous.

    And yet another spectacular adventure from Coulter and Ellison. I hope these ladies keep this series up for a long time. I love watching Nicholas and Mike work together to solve life-threatening puzzles to save the world from the crazies.

    Interesting reading with an incredible plot! The Voynich queries are a series of notes written in an unknown and undeciphered code. In this novel a set of twins, one robust and healthy, the other a hemophiliac, have decided they hold, among other things the cure for hemophilia. They have built up a huge security firm that has created code used in most computers and by most governments. They have also built up a fleet of drones that are programmed...

    It took me way to long to read this book. I like the procedural and the characters. However, I never connected completely. I believe part of the problem is because I started with book 5 of the series. Even though The Sixth Day is supposed to work as a standalone, and the criminal mystery does, I don't understand the main characters, their partnership, or the dynamics of their relationship. I am a Catherine Coulter fan. Her writing skills are exem...

    DNF at page 73. The book is ok just taking to long to get to the fantasy aspect, and to get to the sick brother. I am giving this book to someone who will enjoy it. For me it progresses far too slow and beats around the bush with an overabundance of dialog, but no real draw to pull me in. So sorry I am not going to keep going and struggling through

    Nicholas Drummond, The Brit in the FBI is back in the UK with all pistons firing!!! He's joined by girlfriend Michaela (Mike) Caine on a vacation that turns into a duel with the descendants of Vlad the Impaler, yes Dracula himself.This latest novel in the series begins simply enough with what appears to be a hack into the British security service systems, enabling the evildoer to see not only what lies secret in the servers, but also reads keystr...

    I'm going to have to hop in with the Nay Sayers on this one. Easily the worst Catherine Coulter book I've ever read. It's not that it's too paranormal, this series, and some of the original series have some pretty paranormal stuff in them. I just didn't feel it, with paranormal, you have to feel like it COULD be real. With this, you couldn't feel that. Mostly, you just knew there was a crazy guy on LSD, and a crooked cop. I like to read books tha...

    Thank you to Goodreads Giveaway for a free copy of the book, as well as the publisher and author. As always, an honest review.Drones, falcons, cyber warfare, and boots on the ground police determined to solve the mystery of multiple high ranking officials' deaths pretty much sums up this action packed book. In general The Sixth Day was good but not great.I enjoyed the page turning action packed intensity of it. I even finished the last 200 pages ...

    The Sixth Day by author Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison is the 5th book of the series "A Brit in the FBI". There are several interesting themes going on in this book. It is easy to read and you may wonder how special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine will solve the perplexing mysteries while they are on a visit in England with Nicholas' family. His father's company has been compromised due to a hack and ransomware being integrated in...

    Really enjoyed this book. I found it hard to put it down. This was my first taste of "A Brit in the FBI" but I certainly want to read more. This book catches you in the first few pages, going back to Vlad the Impaler and a story about half-siblings. The book then begins the modern day story, about Nicholas and Mike recovering from their last endeavor in crime fighting. We meet Roman and are told of his plans and the plans of the "patriots" fundin...

    This book combines suspense, intrigue, history, ancient evil and modern hacking to tell a story that is totally engrossing for page after page. It contains a number of unique and interesting ideas including the unique language of twins, the bond between strong and weak twins, the true story of Vlad Dracul and even Bram Stoker's inspiration for the vampire story that set the baseline. Add to this a criminal genius with a fleet of advanced drones a...

    I voluntarily read and reviewed a advanced reader's copy of this book from NetGalleyThe Sixth Day by Catherine Coulter and J T Ellison, book 5 in A Brit in the FBI series. I've read books by Catherine Coulter in the Savich & Sherlock series but this is the first one in the spinoff that I've read in this series. It took me awhile to get into the book but once I did I wasn't disappointed. It had everything you want in a thriller a complex storyline...

    I have largely liked this series. The books always explore one of those urban legends and add a fictional twist to it to include fantastical elements.This time however, the book just did not work for me and it largely had to do with the pacing. It was too forced and thus made the reader question everything instead of going with the crazy flow. Too many characters keep coming and going from the story, the world is always one step away from annihil...

    This time Drummond and Mike are on vacation in England. His dad who works for MI5 puts them to work when computers become hostage. Drones start killing people and they are thrown into that. Falcons begin attacking, as well. Will they find out who is behind this, before London is destoryed?This did have some vampire stuff in it. I usually don't read books with that in them, but I did enjoy a little. Still Vampires are not my thing.

    1970-01-01
    I thought this vampire/Dracula/hemophilia/terrorism/tech thriller got tedious. The twins-with-hemophilia tale throughout the ages got told, and retold, and re-re-told as the book progressed, albeit in the context of the particular dusty century in which the update appeared. All in service of two twin madmen who want to be immortal, with one stricken with incurable hemophilia (incurable save for hocus-pocus from a missing manuscript) and the other...
