This week CCPL Great Reads features “Labyrinth” by Catherine Coulter.

Agent Lacey Sherlock’s Tuesday afternoon had been planned to the minute. A quick stop at the market for a couple of things, a half-hour workout at the gym, and then home to help with Dillon with dinner prep. Not on the plan was for her Volvo to be T-boned at an intersection, her car spinning out of control, a man’s body flying across her hood,  hitting her head, or the blackness that followed.

When Sherlock regains consciousness, she is being treated at a local hospital. While she has suffered a concussion, as well as cuts and bruises, her injuries were not life-threatening. Great news!  Not so great, however, is the fact that not only does Sherlock have no memory of the accident, and the moments that led right up to it, she also has none of Dillon and Sean. 

As Sherlock and Dillon come to grips with what they hope to be only a temporary loss of memory, they are concerned about the man that Sherlock struck—Justice Cummings a CIA analyst at Langley—who has vanished. 

Meanwhile, in the small town of Gaffer’s Ridge, Virginia,  a vacationing Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith has just rescued Carson DeSilva, a kidnapped woman who claims her captor, Rafer Bodine, admitted to the murder of three teenage girls.  Unfortunately, when the local authorities are called, they learn that Rafer is not only the Sheriff’s nephew but also a  member of a powerful family reputed to have special abilities. After Sheriff Bodine arrests Griffin and Carson, Griffin calls Savich for help. A labyrinth of lies hides a terrible secret in the small town—a secret they must work together to uncover before another young woman disappears.

“Labyrinth” is a fast-paced, cleverly plotted thriller filled with suspenseful twists and turns guaranteed to keep readers on the edge of their seats to the last page--Catherine Coulter at her best!
