    I was SO EXCITED to finally read the book where Sherlock and Savich meet! Yay! And Sherlock taking Savich down in a training exercise? Too funny!

They chemistry here is hot, constant banter and Sherlock defying her boss. This one is one of Coulter’s best, but as a warning, it’s a bit gruesome… all serial killer tracking and one grisly murder after the next. Sherlock’s sister was killed years ago, and she’s determined to figure out who did it, and catch them. But do they have the right perp? And will tracking them down put Sherlock in further danger? Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader.

    Dear Catherine Coulter, I don't know why I punish myself. After your horrid first book in this series, The Cove, the only reason I decided to give this one a shot is because I love the woman who reads the audio version, Susan Ericksen (she does a fantastic job on the Eve Dallas series by J.D. Robb). Either this was her first audiobook or yes, your writing is still horrendous. No FBI agency has solved more serial murders as fast as the ones in this book. I still can't believe it.

Either write a thriller/mystery or write a romance. Make a decision. I refuse to read any more of your awful books. Sincerely, Not a fan. Period.

Lace’s sister Belinda was murdered by a serial killer when Lacey was only 19. That changed Lacey’s life forever. Her goals in life changed. She threw herself into her studies. Her only goal was joining the FBI, so she could find the man that took her sister’s life. Being a part of Savich’s unit gave her access to databases she needed in order to search and take down the string killer. I loved the action, suspense, and romance in this book. If you like thriller /Action books with a touch of romance, I think you will enjoy this one!

All the while Sherlock and Savich become closer and find out Lacey' s secret connections to the main criminal they are after. Their is not a lot of romance or sex written between the two but it is a brief couple of sex scenes. What you do get is an interesting story to unravel.

The plot starts out well enough with an FBI recruit in search of the serial killer responsible for her sister's death but goes straight downhill from there. The story development is ridiculous and contrived, the writing and dialogue are atrocious and the characterization is just plain weird. The heroine, Lacey Sherlock, is supposed to be a well-trained, intelligent FBI agent but her TSTL moments abound and the jokes about her name are tedious. The hero, Dillon Savich, is sexy and the romance and sexual tension are tantalizing but not enough to save the book from being a dud. The secondary cast is moronic from the smarmy brother-in-law and his rabid new wife to the jealous ex-girlfriend and the pitifully clichéd villain - all are painfully one dimensional and add nothing to the story aside from a number of absurd and perhaps even comic situations that I doubt the author was striving for. All in all, an unrealistic and poorly written attempt to cash in on the success of Thomas Harris's The Silence of the Lambs. If you want a riveting FBI focused book, read that one instead.

    Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock meet for the first time in this book. She's just completed her training and begins working for him. I found the story to be interesting and fast paced, the romance to be tension-filled and compelling, and the mystery to be suspenseful. I highly recommend the book and am on to the next in the series.

    This is the third book I have read by Catherine Coulter and the second in the series. I started out with the third novel "The Target" which sold me into reading more of her books, it was an excellent read which I couldn't put down! I can say "The Maze" has a fair story and story line as did "The Cove" her first book, not top notch, but sufficient. Not many twists and turns although it did have me guessing some!

I can say "The Maze" has a fair story and story line as did "The Cove" her first book, not top notch, but sufficient. Not many twists and turns although it did have me guessing some! The problem I have had with Ms. Coulter's first two books is she tries to get too cute with her writing by injecting comments that in normal life wouldn't happen. The comments try to be cute, quirt, and just odd, they in my belief completely takes away from telling the story! I believe it actually slows down the flow of the book, as I had to stop and re-read, then think did they really say that?? At any rate I do enjoy the main characters Dillion Savich who helps solve the crime via his computer inputs, and Lacey Sherlock a new agent, whom are both taken with each other and team up to solve a string of vicious murders involving a serial killer who torments his victims in a Maze. I would suggest if you are a first time reader with this author, start with the third in the series as I did. Then decide if you want to go read the first two books in the series or move to the 4th. I am hoping the fourth picks up with the pace that the third book had!!!!

She enlists the help of her supervisor, Dillon Savich, to catch the fiend. Catherine Coulter has done it again with "The Maze." As in her other novels, she wows the readers with her twists and turns; ups and downs; along with the art of "pointing the finger" at other characters in her work. However, she loses that little push that she has had in her other books. I felt that there wasn't enough "umph" towards the end to finish it off succinctly. There was a pause towards the end in which she should of put a twist or a turn into the story. I still recommend Catherine Coulter's "The Maze" as a good book to read.

    This one's just as awesome and UNPUTDOWNABLE as the first! Coulter drags you right in at the beginning and holds you until the end!

    The FBI dream team has done it again. However, this one focuses on their initial meet & greet and how things rapidly progressed from there. Lacy S and her deranged family are the primary focus throughout this brain teaser. I'll finish the review shortly....gotta run. The FBI dream team has done it again.

    I dont read alot of this type of novel. Sadistic serial killer stories are really not my preference, but I found myself reading this book, and for a while, I seem to be enjoying the story, even if I was hoping that the killing didnt become too graphic, etc. But around the 2/3 point of the book, it seemed like the author became tired of writing the book and took short cuts, gave in to the lower nature of adolescent sensationalism, for lack of a better way to say it.

Some of the significant points in the story were unrealistic (lacey is taken prisoner AGAIN, but allowed to go to the bathroom PRIVATELY before she is taken away to be butchered). Odd, to say the least. But even with this odd turn of events, she still is unable to take advantage of the hidden gun she has in her lower leg holster, but instead, allows herself to be tied up and put in a car to be driven to the warehouse where she will be murdered. This is just one fine example of 8th grade, hurry and get this book done so I can watch TV, type of writing that characterizes this story. Arent I now amazed to see that Ms. Coulter has several other similar looking and sounding books for me to now choose from. So maybe I can learn something, huh? Ms. Coulter seems to be pumping out lousy novels routinely. Even so, she is pumping, prospering, and probably laughing all the way to the beach. So, I suppose kudos are in order for her ability to convince the public to buy her poor stories. But I think I will not be one who supports her living any further. Life is too short to be amazed at how poorly a good story is executed.

Dillon Savich is the chief of CAU - Criminal Apprehension Unit - They use technology to hunt for serial killers. Dillon is also Lacey's new boss. I think Coulter leaned heavily on the suspense and policial aspect until 60% of the book, and then went with drama and romance. I just couldn't understand some characters, and I felt that a few could have been excluded. It was too much happening at the same time. I'm not sure if it was just my file, but the were various typos and there were non ***** to change the POV, and that pissed me off and threw me for a loop. I'm rating The Maze 3 Stars and will for sure read other in the series. I'm just not sure when.

Entertaining and fast-moving, complete with overly-perfect heros (he's musical too, doncha know, on top of being a gorgeous computer genuis with muscles) and basket-case heroines with repressed memories (how the heck did she make it into the FBI??). Still, I find myself irritated that the library doesn't have the third book in the series. =) Definitely a guilty pleasure book.

    Second book in the series, but Savich and Sherlock are one of my favorite literary couples. They are funny smart and have an interesting job. Great dialogue and world building. Loved the cases and family/group dynamics. Fast Paced and entertaining!

    Wow! This book is honestly awesome. Sherlock is one hell of a woman and she had great chemistry with Dylan. This book is equal parts romance, suspense, and police procedural. All my favorite things in one book, of course I loved it. 😁👍 I also liked seeing James and Sally again. They're my babies. Glad they're happy. ❤

But it is also the first book in the Agents Sherlock and Savich series. From here forward the series now focuses on these two characters as leads. Basic premise: Lacey Sherlock has been tormented for seven years about the death of her half-sister Belinda. She had been killed by a serial killer named the String Killer who put his victims in a maze with a string leading them to the center and then killed them mimicking the myth of the minotaur. After her sister’s death, Sherlock becomes obsessed with finding the killer. So obsessed she joined the FBI and then when she became an agent began a more in-depth search using the FBI’s resources. Here is where she meets Dillon Savich who becomes her boss after she bested him in a training exercise before she was awarded the coveted FBI badge. Savich then makes sure she is assigned to his team because he wants the best agents. Her original intent was to become a profiler but she realized almost too late that a job such as that might break her mentally. Her mother and sister were not the most mentally stable people. She figured it ran in the family. There are a lot of twists and turns in this story and I did find some of the dialogue during the more sexy moments a little old fashioned but this book had been written in 1997. It might need a bit of an update where that is concerned but this book still stands the test of time. This is where the phenom was created. The first book in a blockbuster series that is still going today as I write this in 2019. I did feel like the relationship between Savich and Sherlock was a bit premature but this has books and books ahead where we can explore the complexities of them as a couple and as agents working together. I like this dynamic between the two leads but I wonder when the whole “psychic sense” comes in for Dillon that he has in current books. He sure doesn’t use this sense here in book one. I loved this book and look forward to reading every single book in this series. It is a mission of mine now. MISSION SHERLOCK/SAVICH. How many can I read by the end of the year, I wonder. I am excited to find out. The Maze is A-MAZE-ING! Highly recommended.

    Enjoyed this book very much. I like the characters, and I plan to read more of this series. Some people might say people fall in love too fast in this book, but (as someone who got engaged and married quickly) it's not a bad thing. The female protagonist reminds me of Kate Beckett, because her career path is chosen due to a family tragedy. Happily this FBI agent is not as closed off as Beckett.

    If you are looking for a little mystery and lots of romance, this is your book/series!! I often get in the mood for something light that I don't have to pay close attention to, this book was perfect for that. FBI Special Agent Dillon Savich teams up with new agent Lacey Sherlock in a case that leads them back to the murder of Sherlock's sister seven years ago-and put both their lives on the line.

The big flaw here is that the book seems to go on too long. There's a substantial amount of melodrama to go around as well as both the hero and heroine ending up injured numerous times. Also, you know how you always yell at the screen when the woman walks into a dark room, basement, etc. and you wonder how she could be that stupid? Well, our well-trained FBI agent does just that, totally unprepared and beyond incredible. And, then there are some minor inconsistencies that should have been caught: Dillon's voice being a tenor and then being a baritone. There didn't seem to be any "real" connection between Dillon and Lacey. After enjoying the initial build up and I do mean excitedly enjoying it because I thought I'd found a wonderful series much like the Stephanie Plum series, I felt let down and amazed how the novel continued to drone on when it should have ended chapters ago. Disappointing.

    I skipped The Cove and went right to The Maze and, based on the reviews so far, I'm glad I did but it only helped me a little. I've tried to read Coulter before with no success and after this I'm not likely to try again. It's not that this book was bad, there were parts that I enjoyed, but it was like a soap opera set in a nuthouse! Everyone was crazy and hardly anything they said or did made any sense to me. I found the plot to be too hard to believe and the resolutions even more so.

The romance was this book's only saving grace and that's mainly because I'm used to Coulter's (historical) heroes forcing themselves on the heroine so Dillon got huge bonus marks for not being a bastard but he wasn't enough to convince me to read more.

    The Maze focuses on Dillon Savich who made an appearance in The Cove. Once again, Ms. Coulter has given us a great mystery. While I did have part of the mystery figured out early one, I did no figure out the twist at the end. The chemistry between Dillon and "Sherlock" was great! Although I would think that their HEA was a bit rushed. I also have to wonder at the Bureau chief being OK with them having a relationship when Dillon is Sherlock's boss. But, hey creative license, right? There is also The Maze focuses on Dillon Savich who made an appearance in The Cove. Once again, Ms. Coulter has given us a great mystery. While I did have part of the mystery figured out early one, I did no figure out the twist at the end. The chemistry between Dillon and "Sherlock" was great!

But, hey creative license, right? There is also an appearance of characters from The Cove. It is always nice to catch up with previous characters. Anyway, this is a great sequel to the first. I look forward to the next one on the series.

    I really liked the little we saw of Dillon in the first book, but in this one he didn't come off as good, just weird. Lacey was weird too, which seemed to be the theme of the book for me and it wasn't a good weird. The story was pretty predictable and boring in the middle. But for some reason I had to keep reading. I think the best part of the book was when Miss Lily, Marvin, and the bartender showed up in the story. There parts bring in such funny antics that you can't help but to love them.

I will check out the next book, but it will be a make or break book for me in this series.

    The plot was okay (for 3/4 of the book, anyway). The characters were decent. The dialogue was distractingly terrible. I felt like I was watching the dress rehearsal for a really awful telenovela. I'm actually shocked this book made it through the publishing house and onto book shelves like this. Also, the technology used by the FBI was surprisingly out of date, even for 1997 (the year the book was published). And the icing on the cake: one of the "hot, fashionable" characters wore a freaking fan The plot was okay (for 3/4 of the book, anyway). The characters were decent.
