    This is actually two books in one. The Target is the story of a Federal Judge who is on vacation in a cabin in the mountains when he hears someone in distress. He searches and finds a small child. She is frightened and hurt. He takes her in, only to find that someone is trying to kill her. There follows a harrowing ride involving the child's mother as well as FBI agents Sherlock and Savich who trace down the reason behind the girl's abduction. The second story, "The Edge" involves a military man This is actually two books in one.

The second story, "The Edge" involves a military man who is so attuned to his sister that he is present in her mind as she drives off a cliff thousands of miles away from his location. Again Sherlock and Savich join him in the search for the bad guys behind the reasons for her apparent attempt at suicide. The biggest problem I have is do all of these books follow the same formula in that the friend of Sherlock and Savich falls in love with a suspect in whatever case they are currently involved in? I've only read one other FBI Thriller than these, so I'm just wondering.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I almost never hit a book that I have to put down and stop reading because it is so stupid. This book is the rare exception. The main character finds a child molest victim hiding in the hills, and cleans her up, effectively destroying evidence that would identify the molester, then KEEPS HER, instead of turning her in to authorities, or finding her parents. His reasoning is that the authorities might scare her. WHAT?? The stupidity continued after that until I just couldn’t take it any more.

    Addictive read I used to manage a bookstore and I tried to keep this series in stock (if not all of them, as many as possible). They did well. I finally got around to reading them and I can't get enough of them. Even though the ones I have read so far are pre-9/11, they are very relevant to today. They are fast moving and page turners. I recommend them. Even though you don't have to, she gives enough back story, I also recommend that you read them in order.

    The Target and The Edge I love the FBI series. Whenever I want or need to read a well written book with wonderful characters, a great story full of suspense, great descriptions, and warm romance, I read or reread a book in this series. In this set The Target is great. I didn't enjoy The Edge as much due to the whole drug/sex thing. But this series is really entertaining. The Target and The Edge I love the FBI series.

    Actually read The Target and The Edge before. Liked The Target a lot. Ramsey, a Federal judge, finds a little Six year old girl, Emma, in the woods. She had been kidnapped, beaten, and sexually abused. Ramsey takes care of her until her Mom finds them and then they hunt for the people who caused all the trouble and kidnapping. Good read.

    This book will keep the reader on the edge of their seat. The story moves quickly and is quiet engaging. The book is worth the time to read.

    Double Jeopardy by Peter Storey The passengers boarded the plane and as Derrick Hall walked down the aisle to his seat he thought about previously meeting Sasha and Sharriff while having breakfast in the airport. They had talked about him working for them and made arrangements to have lunch the next day. Everything was going to be wonderful and he thought maybe he will get to know Shaffiff’s daughter better. Derrick was watching through the window and saw they were close to landing in a few minute Double Jeopardy by Peter Storey The passengers boarded the plane and as Derrick Hall walked down the aisle to his seat he thought about previously meeting Sasha and Sharriff while having breakfast in the airport. They had talked about him working for them and made arrangements to have lunch the next day. Everything was going to be wonderful and he thought maybe he will get to know Shaffiff’s daughter better. Derrick was watching through the window and saw they were close to landing in a few minutes. It was then he saw a bright flash and a light coming towards them. Unknown to the passengers, the plane was doomed to crash. The writer described the scenes more real than I had ever read or imagined. It felt as though I was in the plane and it took my breath away. The story begins: It’s all about greed, espionage, money, murder, torture, hiding, searching, running across the world, sex and more sex, love, friendships, and lots more money. I would recommend this book to be read at home where you would feel safe and not at an airport while waiting for your flight. Peter Storey has a vivid imagination and I hope he will continue to write exciting books.

    Not my favorite writing style. Too many short sentences which start with pronouns and use repeat words on the same page—sometimes the same paragraph. Nonetheless, the plot was good, but it wasn’t developed dramatically. The significant events were told in a sentence or two and not shown. Most of the rest was everyday events with no drama. I’ve heard her speak and she’s very interesting so this must be the result of being an early work.

    This was a book that had two thrillers ~ The Target & The Edge~ These are two of Catherine Coulter's first novels. I really liked The Target, but was tired of the cookie cutter writing in The Edge. I hadn't read her in a few years, but now have my fill for a few more.

    I have read this book countless times and I have to say that I am never disappointed. I thoroughly enjoy this series. The way that Savich and Sherlock are together is the best part of the book. Their working relationship and marriage are terrific! I love them together!

    The Target and the Edge were not the suspense thrillers I was hoping for. I do enjoy the FBI agents Savich and Sherlock investigations. There is an interesting story here and both books are a good beach read.

    Very formulaic. The second part, The Edge, is pretty ridiculous.

    Read in one day. Not as gripping as I thought it would have been, not as much as a love story as I thought either. Good quick read though.

    This is an author that I have read a lot of and have added her books to my 'keeper' book shelf. Most I have read at least twice and some even more than that.

    The Edge I liked the story about Ford and Laura being on the same side and was glad to see Sherlock and Savich with a baby no less. Poor Ford, he was so concerned and confused about his sister Jilly and her husband and that they might be making and dealing with drugs. And the place they moved to... Well the people were just weird. The next thing you know is that they are drugged and kidnapped and in the middle of a rain forest and people are dying. Get ready for a crazy adventure.
