Special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine take on a ruthless mastermind in the fifth highly anticipated thriller in the New York Times bestselling A Brit in the FBI series.

When several major political figures die mysteriously, officials declare the deaths are from natural causes. Then the German Vice-Chancellor dies on the steps of 10 Downing Street, and a drone is spotted hovering over the scene. The truth becomes clear--these high-profile deaths are well-constructed assassinations, and the Covert Eyes team is tasked to investigate.

With the help of Dr. Isabella Marin, a young expert in the enigmatic Voynich Manuscript and cryptophasia (twin language), Nicholas and Michaela home in on Roman Ardelean, a wealthy cybersecurity genius and a descendant of fifteenth century Romanian Vlad the Impaler--often romanticized as Dracula. Ardelean believes the Voynich Manuscript will unlock the secret to curing his severely ill twin brother's blood disorder and is willing to murder anyone who gets in his way, including Nicholas and Michaela.

Along with MI5, the Covert Eyes team must race against the clock to find Ardelean before he unleashes a devastating attack on London intended to destroy those he believes betrayed him.

With heart-pounding tension and gripping suspense, New York Times bestselling authors Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison "are really on an amazing roll with their outstanding A Brit in the FBI series" ( RT Book Reviews ).

Good book!! Like these two authors seperate and teamed up. Once you get past the history lesson ( a little boring) the book is full of action and moves at a good pace. Strong characters, good plot, with twist and turns to keep your attention.

Long book that brought together a plot line which included Dracula and drones!! Not sure where this came from but it was certainly different. Lots of characters - both good and evil. Continuing the characters of Nicholas Drummond the Brit in the FBI. Lots of backstory which could have been shorter.

On the acknowledgments page of THE SIXTH DAY by Catherine Coulter and J. T. Ellison. Ellison acknowledges Coulter by saying "And to Catherine, for always allowing my imagination to soar." And in this book, the imagination soars! This is a fun read with the usual cast of "A Brit in the FBI Thriller" series. Throw in some ancient gypsy mythology, alleged vampires, an armies of drones, living raptors (as in birds), and an LSD junkie and you have a potent, engaging story line that makes the book hard to put down. Great read Enjoy.

I was really looking forward to her newest book, because I really like the characters. This novel had a lot of backstories from centuries ago, that I found boring and unnecessary. Certainly the action involving Nicholas and Mike was great, but I found myself skipping over the chapters involving the century's old drivel. I gave it 3 stars just for the action of the two main characters.

Nonstop action will keep you turning pages. Outlandish plot, typical Coulter with several going at the same time. All usual characters appear, but little input from those in the United States.
