Overview

From New York Times bestselling authors Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison comes a riveting thriller pitting special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine against the head of a private space agency who has the power to end the world as we know it.

It’s Bastille Day in France, and the private French space agency Galactus—France’s answer to Space X, owned by the eccentric treasure hunter Jean-Pierre Broussard—has just sent a satellite payload into orbit. Billed as a “communications” satellite, it harbors a frightening reality: a nuclear electromagnetic pulse has been hidden aboard.

In days, when the satellite is in position, Galactus’s head and Broussard’s second in command, Dr. Neveah Patil, will have the power to lay waste to the world with her EMP, and create her own immortality with the Holy Grail––the stones of the heavens and the very treasure Broussard has spent his life searching for.

The countdown has begun, and Special Agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine will go down to the wire to stop this heinous attack. With their signature “nonstop action with enough realism to keep you thinking and scare the daylights out of you at the same time” (Suspense Magazine), Coulter and Ellison have created a thriller to take you on a breakneck and breathtaking journey.

As usual this was a good read from authors Coulter and Ellison. I think 'A Brit in the FBI' is one of the better series available today. The plot was very well written and there were some times that the action and suspense made my heart race. The characters were brought to life so that you could see them in your mind's eye. Even though I didn't like the villains I still had a vision of what they looked like and who they were. I received this ebook from NetGalley for an honest review.

4.5 Stars Review by Heather Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog The Last Second by Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison is a science-fiction thriller. Nicholas Drummond and Michaela (Mike) Caine are back (introduced in The Sixth Day) and trying to save the world from a nuclear EMP. Dr. Neveah Patel is a brilliant woman and the biggest mistake NASA ever made was to ground her. She actually accomplished the goal of space travel, to communicate with an interstellar species, the Numen, and NASA doesn’t want to hear about it or for anyone else to either. Dr. Patel is then forced to show NASA and the world how wrong they have been and to make the Earth silent. Silent, so we can all hear the Numen for ourselves. Nike and Mike are in a breathless race against time to stop the deployment of the EMP and capture Dr. Patel before she wreaks such havoc on Earth that we might never recover from. The regular characters (Michaela and Nick and Grant and Kitsune Thornton) are likable and we are definitely rooting for them to succeed, but Dr. Neveah Patel is probably my favorite character. Is she mentally ill? And, if so, was she before she went to space or did something happen on her space walk? If she’s not mentally ill, is she evil? Part of me, really wanted her to be right, but as the book progresses she becomes harder and harder to identify with. As with some science-fiction, a certain suspension of disbelief is required to enjoy this book. The idea that someone could launch such a catastrophic device (nuclear EMP) into space even via a private space company is ridiculous, but once you get past that the story is fast-paced and engaging. I highly recommend The Last Second, it will definitely keep the pages turning until the end.

Even when the members of the Covert Eyes group are on vacation, they can't seem to avoid trouble. Nicholas and Mike are supposed to be enjoying some time off and the beautiful Mediterranean area - but they hear about a downed yacht and spring into action. It is understandable that they would rush to the assistance of the yacht when one of their friends was known to be on board. But things are not as simple as a sinking ship, and would readers really expect anything so uncomplicated from these agents? As usual in the cases that the team takes on, there are multiple lines to follow and complicated plots to unravel. This time there are ancient shipwrecks, legends of the Holy Grail, satellite launches, stolen nuclear material, an EMP bomb, telescopes, the International Space Station, and aliens. So ... just an average day for the Covert Eyes. The search for answers has Adam hacking into networks best left unnamed, while Nicholas and Mike travel from Italy to Malaysia, Lyon, and Sri Lanka. Along the way there are shootouts, crashes, ambushes, and even an encounter with Al Qaeda and the CIA. Between Nicholas and his skills on the computer and Mike's weapons and hand-to-hand proficiency, they make a great field team even when the rest of their group is halfway around the globe. The continuous countdown shown at the beginning of each chapter heading increases the tension as readers wonder if it truly will take until the last second to find those responsible and stop them. This series continues to deliver fast-paced action, humor to break the tension, intricate plots, and the sizzling attraction between the team's leaders. The relationship highlights the mutual respect for their abilities and the story line takes advantage of their faith in each other as well as their desire to keep each other safe. Highly recommended for fans of suspense thrillers.

I have a conflicted opinion about this series. I like the Covert Eyes characters and their allies. The main characters in this novel were well-developed and interesting. I particularly liked Kiera and Poppy. The plot was interesting and well-crafted. While the basic plotlines were not unique -- search for the Holy Grail, communication with aliens, and terrorist attack using a nuclear weapon (in this case, an EMP set off in low orbit), I am confident there has never been another book that combined all three together. The authors did a good job of weaving these disparate plots together into a coherent overarching plot. The story goes back and forth in time, revealing more of the backstory of Nevaeh Patel, former astronaut and now CEO of Galactus Space Enterprises, and how her plan radically to alter the world has developed. While US and British intelligence figure prominently in the series, I like that intelligence or military services in other countries are utilized as well. However, as I said in a review of an earlier book in the series, the action scenes are way over the top, which detracts somewhat from the overall quality of the book. Yet, it is still a good read and a good addition to the series. I received an e-galley via NetGalley in exchange for a review.

Before diving into my review of The Last Second, I want to share some facts about the co-authors of the series A Brit in the FBI. Catherine Coulter has written over 85 novels, including 78 New York Times bestsellers. She initially began writing historical romances, and later added suspense thrillers. J.T. Ellison has written over 20 books and is an award-winning New York Times and USA Today bestselling author with thrillers published in 27 countries and 15 languages. No one can deny the fact that Coulter and Ellison have made their marks in the literary world and have proven themselves to be preeminent word crafters and storytellers. Having made it clear on their genius writing talents and accomplishments, and in all fairness to Coulter and Ellison having not read the first five books in their series A Brit in the FBI, I was at a disadvantage by starting with book 6 of 6, The Last Second. Coulter and Ellison’s natural, picturesque, and stylistic manner of writing The Last Second was strikingly written. The technological and factual aspects interspersed throughout The Last Second e.g, Guiana Space Center (CGS), nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP) extravehicular activity (EVA) meaning spacewalk, the jet pack used in space and commonly known as a simplified aid for EVA, which is a smaller version of the Manned Maneuvering Unit (MMU) aspects of uses, et cetera are believable. However, the whirlwind of aliens, the Holy Grail, the continuous action of and interaction with landslides, typhoons, et cetera, as well as the other innumerable events that took place around the globe in four days, left me with believing the length of the The Last Second was incredulous. There were too many things happening, too much traversing the world to realistically reach a resolution in four days; this would never be possible, fiction or not. I also discerned some disjointedness when joining two parallel plots of the story. Plot one begins with space, a psychotic (perhaps) scientific astronaut, and aliens, and parallels another plot of Broussard at sea in an impetuous quest to find the Holy Grail. And I felt a disconnect from the characters, but this is on me as I had not read the five previous books in the series which put me at a disadvantage of the backstories of the characters, particularly characters from the earlier books in the series who appeared in The Last Second. This made it difficult to connect the characters to one another. But again, this is due to my not reading the first five books of the series. What stood out to me as exceptionally well done was the writing, the suspense and unknown coupled with the unexpected twists that I never saw coming, and the humorous back and forth wordplay between Nick and Mike. I recommend this book because the authors are sensational. However, I believe I would have benefited from reading the first five books of the series before starting with The Last Second. In recommending this book, I suggest the readers begin with book 1 of 6 and work your way to The Last Second. I wish I had started with book 1 of the series; by not doing so I felt as if I was reading an Indiana Jones meets Star Wars story. Thank you, Simon & Schuster, Catherine Culture, J.T. Ellison, and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review The Last Second. D.B. Moone

I am ambivalent about this book. Part of the problem with the book is the fact that I read it after I read a book that was very intense from the very beginning. Since this one wasn’t, it took me a while to get into it. I don’t believe that The Last Second is different in any significant way from the other Brit in the FBI books or Catherine’s other FBI books. Once the story changed from the back story of Dr. Patel to Mike and Nick it was much better. The part I liked was the way Mike and Nick work together. No matter what happened to them, they were there for each other. I gave it four stars.

Why not go for broke? In Catherine Coulter and J.T.Ellison’s The Last Second The Holy Grail aka Heaven’s Stone, aliens, and a errant satellite armed with a small nuclear bomb are the threads that make up this heart thumping new outing for FBI agents Michaela (Mike) Caine and Nicholas Drummond. The nuclear device is designed to emit an EMP-electromagnetic pulse designed to take out most of the earth’s electrical grid and as a side effect maybe cause a full out nuclear war. Too bad this was all based on the fake news articles about certain astronauts passing lie detector tests concerning their seeing aliens. Note the term lie detector-not polygraph; important difference. I say too bad because in Coulter and Ellison’s last book in the Brit in the FBI series The Sixth Day I was delighted with all of the cool scientific and arcane information presented. To catch up new readers and as a reminder to faithful readers-and yes I’m one-here is a quickie summary. In six months of book time Nicholas Drummond has gone from a Chief Inspector at Scotland Yard to being an FBI agent. He has made it through the academy (which actually lasts four months), partnered up with FBI agent Mike Caine, fallen in love with her, and saved the Queen, the Prime Minister, and the U.S. President. And I think the world a few times. He has been knighted and Mike has been made a Dame. The Knighthood might be a bit superfluous because eventually Drummond will become a Viscount. BTW, this is a rank of the Peerage, seldom of Royalty. But I apologize if Drummond is actually related to the Queen. In other words, they are typical FBI agents. Sorry, couldn’t resist. As always the story is at breakneck speed with a short timeline. Coulter and Ellison’s are as slyly convincing about the first alien encounters as they are for the recovery of the Holy Grail from the ocean floor. The also do a great job in documenting the former astronaut’s journey from off the chart genius to evil genius. The settings from a cliffside villa in Capri to the jungles of Malaysia are breathtaking. No surprise there. The information about EMPs seems to be accurate and well presented. EMP weapons are possible and may exist. But then again lightening strikes are a form of EMP's. Drummond totally treats Mike as an equal and never pulls the man card on her. Especially in highly dangerous situations. Without giving anything away, how she saves the day is pretty funny. I have a slight problem with the super bad girls being lesbians; I hope it’s not an editorial cliche/judgement making them the villains. Although no doubt there will be readers who are offended they even included a lesbian couple. I also have a problem with a secondary character sleeping with one of the baddies, kinda makes him a man-ho. I have another problem with their superlative healing powers. But this just goes with their almost super human adventures. If you are looking for a fun, action packed story, this will do very well.

The Last Second by Catherine Coulter, J. T. Ellison is a recommended thriller, highly for the right reader, and 6th in the Brit in the FBI Series. Dr. Nevaeh Patel is an astronaut who left NASA after she returned from a mission on the International Space Station with claims that aliens, who she calls the Numen, saved her life.She was declared unfit to return to space and she resigned. Currently she is working for Galactus, a French company which launches satellites into space. The owner of Galactus, Jean-Pierre Broussard, is on a treasure hunt in his yacht for the Holy Grail. Nevaeh has nefarious plans into place. She has placed a nuclear bomb on the current satellite sent into space and plans to detonate it, causing an EMP. Then she believes the Numen will come and she will rule the world with them. If she can take the Holy Grail from Jean-Pierre Broussard, then she believes the Grail will give her immortality. FBI Special Agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine are on vacation when they learn that their friend Grant, a body guard for Broussard, is in trouble and they leap into action to help him. They also learn about the plan to cause an EMP which they need to stop. This is an action-packed thriller, but it also expects you to swallow a whole load of disbelief and improbabilities for the bulk of the action to take place. I had a difficult time with this. I imagine fans of the series who have read the other books in it will accept any scenario to get to the action and the subsequent denouement. There is just a few days to stop crazy people doing believable things while a hurricane is coming, and maybe aliens. Now, the quality of the writing is very good, which helps the acceptance of some of the absurdities. The main characters aren't quit as well developed as a new reader would hope, but this is also the sixth book in the series. New readers might want to start with earlier books for a greater understanding of the background of these characters. The new characters are basically well developed. This is an exciting book I like thrillers and can accept quite a lot of speculation in the action, but this novel went just a bit too far afield. If I find myself shaking my head and talking back to the novel, it is not a good sign. Fans of the series will likely jump right in and ignore any questionable occurrences. Start with the earlier books, if possible, for a better reading experience. Disclosure: My review copy was courtesy of Gallery Books.

If you are looking for a hold your breath thriller this is the one! Just all the information and threats of an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) is enough to scare the living days out of you, especially since the information and threats are reality based. The story is full on rapid movement that will get your heart going at every turn. It’s an excellent novel, just excellent! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

It has been nearly a year since I read The Sixth Day by these very talented authors and I really wondered if, like just about every novel I have read from either of them, whether or not it would be worth the wait. Well, it was! Not only that, I read this book in just two sittings. The story is utterly captivating and not the fare I expected when about to read the next in The Brit in the FBI series. Dr. Nevaeh Patel has been pulled from space. After a space-walk outside of the International Space Station, Nevaeh is now touting her first-hand experience with the Numen, who she believes are aliens who are communicating with he. Furthermore, she is convinced that with the aid of the Holy Grail, something long sought after and recently discovered by treasure hunter Jean-Pierre Broussard, she can change the destiny of the entire world. To achieve her purpose, Nevaeh takes extreme measures. As the story is told, readers see that her belief in the Numen is 100% real. She really wants back in space. So, she has a dual purpose. What Nevaeh does in order to achieve both of these goals is nothing short of extreme madness. Yes, mad beyond belief. Her nefarious activities prove that she is certainly not afraid of consequences. The Last Second is a thriller beyond compare. Michaela "Mike" Cain and Nicholas Drummond are the FBI agents handling the case. While healing from a badly damaged ankle, Mike and Nicholas are visiting Grant and Kitsune Thornton (familiar characters from previous tales), and they become involved in what happens to Broussard when cooky ex-astronaut Neyaeh tries and grabs to newly found Holy Grail. Whether on land, air or water, action is never ceasing in The Last Second. All the while, readers are sucked into the very sick mind of Neyaeh. No one is safe from danger, even those perpetrating it. I loved all the techno talk in this book - whether from the former astronaut (who is the epitome of an unreliable character), or from Broussard while on his ship, the Galactic.Then the heroic actions of the FBI team is nothing short of spectacular. Obviously, I could go on and on and on. But, no matter what I write here, I am desperately striving to avoid spoilers. I definitely think that fans following this series will be as drawn into this story as I was. As a matter of fact, this book certainly is already one of my Top Picks for this year! I look forward to the next book in this series. The previous five books in the series are The Final Cut, The Lost Key, The End Game, The Devil's Triangle and The Sixth Day. Many thanks to Gallery Books and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

Disappointed. While both these writers do write excellent thriller fiction, switching to science fiction was a (bad) stretch for them. I could easily have gotten bored with their setup, which took half the book,but when the action actually started to move they stalled it several times to give more flashback information. The final few chapters were relatively good. This was really just a (slow) action thriller that science and science fiction had little to do with. It is a wonder that I did not put this book down and move on. I did actually finish it and it was okay,; but I wouldn't have missed much if I had just put it down. If you are looking for a sci-fy read look elsewhere.

A dangerous conspiracy that began in space… This is the sixth book in the A Brit in the FBI series that can be read as a stand-alone. The unthinkable happened to astronaut Dr. Nevaeh Patel outside of the ISS (International Space Station) on her first EVA (extravehicular activity). What should have been a routine excursion almost resulted in her death. When that which tethered her broke and her jet pack failed to respond she began drifting off into space. Panic set in but just when all was feared lost the melodic voices of an alien species sounded within her mind providing a soothing balm and something unseen pushed her back toward the ISS. When faced with the reality of your impending death that cannot be thwarted what does one think of? Do years of rigorous training take over even when the mind hesitates? Mission control found Nevaeh’s explanation of her miraculous rescue incredible, she was recalled to Earth and subjected to debriefings and psychological testing. No amount of rationalization could sway Nevaeh from her story and with no proof, she was permanently grounded. What does one do when not believed? What does someone highly intelligent do when not believed? They find a way to prove their claims. Leaving NASA for the corporate sector Nevaeh begins a long game working for the corporate sector as an executive in a French company that sends satellites into orbit, Galactus. As the years progressed the goal of just returning to space mutated and now she’s set to irrevocably change the world to what she believes it should be with an EMP nuke in a satellite and the help of the aliens she still converses with. When the vacationing FBI Special Agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine, a part of the Covert Eyes team, learn that their friend Grant, who was working protective detail for a French treasure hunter (the head of Galactus) has run into trouble aboard a luxurious yacht anchored in Malaysian waters while seeking the mythical Holy Grail, they are pulled into a dangerous plot that began years ago in space. A conspiracy that threatens the very existence of all that man has known and depends upon does grab and keep one’s attention riveted. I liked how the authors combined the technologically plausible with the fantastical and how they then took it to the realm of possibility, the mythology aspect leaves you wondering if there really might be a grain of truth in the myth, and don’t forget the extra-terrestrials. The fast-paced action and suspense plot is complex and detailed, everything builds up to conclusion in the last second, the FBI agents racing against a countdown that perhaps can’t be thwarted. You wonder for a while whether Nevaeh is insane or did she really make first contact with an alien species. The story is enjoyable with amusing banter at times between the likable characters, you do need to read this book with an open mind, suspend your beliefs and just go along for the ride. I would have liked more on the dispensation of the Holy Grail in the epilogue. An advanced reading copy was obtained from the publisher via NetGalley.

I've read two of this "Brit in the FBI" series and absolutely loved them both, so when I got the chance to wade into this one as an advance review copy, I was ecstatic. And guess what? The story is a bit more "out there" than the others, but it's yet another 5-star winner in my book. The very likable characters, in particular special agents Nicholas Drummond and his sweetie, Michaela "Mike" Caine, are back. The two are staying with friends and other regular characters Grant and Kitsune Thornton, while Mike nurses a nearly healed broken ankle that happened during a previous adventure. Mike and Nicholas head the FBI Covert Eyes Team, while Grant runs a private security company that's been hired to protect Jean-Pierre Broussard, the founder of Galactus Industries. In the prologue, readers learn that astronaut Dr. Nevaeh Patel was drummed out of the space program after a near-death experience during a spacewalking event, after which she claimed to have heard extraterrestrial voices called the Numen. No one believed her and most think she's gone bonkers - and thus unfit for another outer space mission. Insisting she's not crazy, Nevaeh quits the program, later hooking up with Broussard. He wants someone to take over that company while he searches the seas for the "Holy Grail" - a rock believed to have healing powers. But Nevaeh has much more on her mind than running a company that puts small satellites in space at an affordable cost. Those voices never stopped calling, you see, and they're getting louder by the day - urging her to undertake a project that will disrupt the entire world and give them, and Nevaeh, total control. Once Mike and Nicholas learn what's going on, they have other ideas - but can they find a way to stop what she's about to make happen, even if it's at the last second? A good bit of the almost nonstop action takes place at sea, with scenes reminiscent (to me, at least) of Clive Cussler's NUMA Files books. As the two intersecting plots on land and water begin to seriously converge, all the characters get involved in ultra-dangerous situations that call for super-human feats, and the ending is worthy of an Ian Fleming 007 novel. My verdict? Thank goodness for one of the most boring Super Bowl games ever (and I haven't missed a single one since the 1967 inaugural game) that allowed me to finish the final third of the book nonstop. And speaking of thanks, I'll send some to the publisher, via NetGalley, for allowing me to read and review it.

Thank you so much to Gallery books and NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. This was my first novel by Catherine Coulter and who knows what number by J.T. Ellison. I honestly couldn't get into this novel. I think if I had read the first books in this series it would have helped but this one was way too "out there" for me. Also I feel if I had read the previous novels before this I wouldn't have been so confused and struggled to figure out who was who and who was doing what at the beginning. That slowed down my reading a lot as I had to keep re-reading certain parts I was confused on to figure out what was going on. Once I got further in the book it made more sense but I feel as someone coming into this series as a newbie I was completely lost and didn't have a grasp on the characters. The beginning of the book seemed to drag on and on to the point where I was getting bored. All that was talked about was Nevaeh and her whining and complaining and then finally about halfway through it started to get a little more interesting but still not enough for me to enjoy it. I'm not sure if it's because I'm not a huge fan of sci-fi but everything seemed so far fetched to me to the point I wanted to roll my eyes. The suspense parts of this novel didn't really thrill me or leave me gasping wanting to know what would happen next. One thing I did enjoy about this book was the characters and their humor and banter with each other once I figured out who everyone was and what role they played in this book. That alone makes me want to read the other books in the series but this one was a flop for me. I prefer J.T. Ellison as a mystery writer and will continue to read her books and might pick up Catherine Coulter's as well

Authors Coulter and Ellison have done it again. Another fantastic, action-packed, nail-biting book from The Brit in the FBI series. Nicolas and Mike's vacation is cut short when Grant goes missing. Throw in a billionaire who finds The Holy Grail, an ex-astronaut who thinks she talks to aliens and her IRA raised bodyguard, a missing satellite with a nuclear bomb aboard, and a terrorist who is really CIA makes for an on the edge of your seat read. A must read to find out how Nicolas and Mike solve the bomb threat and save the world again. They and this book will not disappoint you.
