But their first case threatens their fledgling team when the Fox calls from Venice asking for help. Kitsune has stolen an incredible artifact from the Topkapi Museum in Istanbul, and now the client wants her dead. She has a warning for Nick and Mike: she's overheard talk that a devastating Gobi desert sandstorm that's killed thousands in Beijing isn't a natural phenomenon, rather is produced by man. The Covert Eyes team heads to Venice, Italy, to find out the truth. From New York to Venice and from Rome to the Bermuda Triangle, Nicholas and Mike and their team are in a race against time, and nature herself, to stop an obsessed family from devastating Washington, DC"-- Provided by publisher.

I like Catherine Coulter books and was looking forward to this one. What a disappointment. I read about 1/2 and decided I didn't care about the characters and was uninterested in this farfetched story. Never finished.
Hope her next one is better.

Action-packed with technological weather advances (can make storms appear, disappear, change directions and strength) and searches for the Ark of the Covenant. Perfect good vs evil with the return of a nemesis. Loved how Ms. Coulter returns characters to different books.

the weather changes in this book, caused by past real people showed some imagination and wicked (and twisted) "bad guys". I could live with that.

BUT the ARK OF THE COVENANT, most closely associated with King David in the Bible, was written in this book as if it was merely a myth or suggestion of a relic. That premise and placing the psychotic twins in the line of heritage, yet they were not Levis, or in any way related to Biblical characters, as descendants of The Ark is such a PERVERTED AND
TWISTED WAY TO REPRESENT AN RELIC THAT IS RECOGNIZED TO BE PART OF BIBLICAL HISTORY. It's like doing the same to Noah's ark or The Cross of Christ.

The above ruined the whole book for me. It makes me question ever reading their books again. What will they choose to twist next time? Is it worth reading 500 pages to find out?

This book, unlike others written by these authors, had trouble keeping my interest at the beginning. It perked up a bit as I read but definitely is not my favorite. Maybe my hopes were a bit high as I expected more from these authors (who usually rate a 5 star from me) but it seemed to have too many slow spots. The theme reminded me of James Bond---don't get me wrong as I really like Mr. Bond and have all of his movies---but this was oddly out of place. I would not reread this book.

This was not the ordinary story line for the FBI books - a little too futuristic. However I did read it and after getting my bearings with all the different locations of the story it began to read quickly and was entertaining. Some of the happenings - the weather control and the shield that surrounding the island were a little out there for my tastes - but it does keep you reading this rather lengthy book. I would put this in the category with the DC comic movies - was expecting a super hero to evolve and save the day.

I hope that in her next chapter of Nicholas Drummond that she returns to the here and now and more everyday crime - like the Russian connection to the 2016 presidential election - now that would be a real story!!!!

For the first time in a long time, I don't even know where to begin with commenting on Catherine Coulter & J. T. Ellison's THE DEVIL'S TRIANGLE. So let's start with: I like Coulter's books and Ellison's. I like the BRIT IN THE FBI series. But about 2 chapters into this book, I began to think that Coulter and Ellison had done a Vulcan Mind-Meld with Clive Cussler. By the beginning of Chapter 5, I was convinced Steven Spielberg was in on it too - think Indiana Jones and the and the Lost Ark. And then the characters in the book made the same observation on the 2nd page of that chapter and that was creepy. By the end of the book, the characters had also made reference to Harry Potter (Invisibility Device), Star Trek (Romulan Cloaking Device), more Indiana Jones, the Bermuda Triangle, and Fantasy Island. And one part of the plot was very similar to something out of a James Bond movie. Now in full disclosure, I found the characters making these connections in the book amusing. And the plot was entertaining. And, I read the whole book. If this was Clive Cussler, I would have seen all this coming and enjoyed the ride. But because it was Catherine Coulter, I felt a bit let down. If you are looking for pure entertainment, this book is for you. But I am still wondering if Coulter and Ellison weren't spoofing their own profession a bit.

A satisfying read in that it grabs you and holds your attention to the very end. The plot is implausible but there's enough basis, both historical and scientific, to suffice.
