What Am I Reading? The Devil’s Triangle

Right now I’m on a marathon-read of Catherine Coulter’s latest series: A Brit In the FBI. The books are quite good mystery/thrillers. I’ve read the first two books and am now on Books #3 and #4 – The Devil’s Triangle.  There’s a connection to something by Leonardo DaVinci. The opening features one of the world’s best jewel thieves, although I suspect she’s now focusing in on the DaVinci item:

Chapter One

Kitsune stood on the Rialto Bridge and watched the sun flash against the waves of the lagoon. She enjoyed the early mornings in Venice, before the summer crowds flooded into the city. She watched pigeons peck the ground for yesterday’s crumbs, watched a row of tethered gondolas bob in the heavy sea swell. There would be a storm soon—she tasted it in the air. She looked at her watch. It was time to go. Her client had instructed her to take a water taxi to the San Zaccaria dock, then walk to the house.

What do you think?

Would you keep reading?

  1. I’m definitely interested although this isn’t an author that I’ve come across before although perhaps more from your precise than the opening.

  2. I certainly would read on. It sounds fascinating and I like the Leonardo DaVinci connection – intriguing. Is this a series that you need to read in order?

  3. I’d definitely keep reading! Thanks for sharing, Margot 🙂

    Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison are both authors that I’ve meant to read more of. I think I’ve maybe read one book by each of them and they are both very popular. I’ve noted this series written by the two of them, but just haven’t picked one up yet. Looks like I ought to!

  5. Diane says:

    I haven’t read this author in years, I like the intro and curious for more.

  6. I have often wondered about this author, but have not yet read her. This sounds like a very tempting book…and series. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  7. I would keep reading. Venice is a great setting for a thriller.

  8. I like this author. Keep reading!

    I’m trying to avoid books that aren’t stand alone but this does capture my interest. Do we trust this client? Here’s my link: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1vT

    Another author I have not heard of until today. I would give them a go though.

  11. Nise' says:

    I like this author and am way behind on her book.

  12. I have this ARC but I still need to read the other books that come before it. I have read a lot of other Catherine Coulter books, though.

    Enjoy the book!
