Summary
#1 New York Times bestselling Catherine Coulter returns with a brilliant new thriller in her FBI series, in which agents Sherlock and Savich find themselves dealing with very powerful figures from the past who could wreak havoc in the present. Seven years ago, Mia Briscoe was at a college frat rave with her best friend Serena when a fire broke out. Everyone was accounted for except Serena, who was never seen nor heard from again. Now an investigative journalist covering the political scene in New York City, Mia discovers old photos taken the night of Serena's disappearance, and begins to uncover a sinister string of events going all the way back to that disastrous party. Working with Sherlock, the secrets begin to unravel. But some very powerful—and very dangerous—people will do anything to keep them from learning the truth. CIA Operative Olivia Hildebrandt is a team leader on a mission in Iran to exfiltrate a betrayed undercover operative. She's nearly killed by an exploding grenade and saved by a team member. But by the time Olivia is released from Walter Reed Hospital, that team member—and a critical flash drive he was carrying—have disappeared. When she is savagely attacked on her first night home, Savich suspects that the strike is a direct result of the compromised mission and the missing team member and flash drive. But what intelligence was at stake and who betrayed them?

Booklist Review: "In the twenty-fifth entry in Coulter's FBI Thriller series, investigative reporter Mia Briscoe discovers shocking new evidence in the unexplained disappearance of one of her friends seven years earlier. Teaming with FBI agent Lacey Sherlock, Mia digs for the truth but quickly finds that there are people who are seriously determined to make sure that truth remains buried. Meanwhile, Sherlock's partner and husband, Dillon Savich, investigates a vicious attack on a CIA operative who recently returned from a mission in Iran. Two seemingly unconnected cases? Not really. Coulter, who's been writing her FBI novels since The Cove in 1996, has her game plan pretty much down to a science now. She knows who her characters are, and what motivates them, and she knows what kind of adversary to put up against them. But though the novels follow a pattern, these are not thin, tiresomely formulaic thrillers. They are suspenseful and surprising, and they have earned their large following. Vortex will be received enthusiastically."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A missing person's case kicks off bestseller Coulter's nail-biting 25th FBI thriller (after 2020's Deadlock). Journalist Mia Briscoe has never forgotten her college friend Serena, who disappeared at a rave seven years earlier. When another college friend contacts Mia after discovering photos of the rave on an old phone, Mia turns to FBI agent Lacey Sherlock for help in finding Serena. The stakes rise when it appears that one of the men at the rave was a blue-blooded politician whose race for New York City mayor Mia happens to be covering. Meanwhile, Lacey's FBI agent husband, Dillon Savich, is looking into an attack on a CIA agent and how it might be linked to the disappearance of another CIA agent and the flash drive he got from an operative who was killed in Iran. The danger intensifies for Savich and Sherlock as they get closer to uncovering the answers to their respective investigations. Coulter does her usual fine job of building suspense by shifting between the parallel narratives. This long-running thriller series shows no sign of losing steam. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group. (Aug.)"
