From Catherine Coulter, the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of the FBI Thriller series, and J.T. Ellison, bestselling author and ITW Award winner, comes the first book in a brilliant new international thriller series featuring the new hero: American-born, UK-raised Nicholas Drummond.

Scotland Yard's new chief inspector Nicholas Drummond is on the first flight to New York when he learns his colleague, Elaine York, the "minder" of the Crown Jewels for the "Jewel of the Lion" exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was found murdered. Then the centerpiece of the exhibit, the infamous Koh-i-Noor Diamond, is stolen from the Queen Mother's crown. Drummond, American-born but raised in the UK, is a dark, dangerous, fast-rising star in the Yard who never backs down. And this case is no exception.  
Special Agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich from Coulter's bestselling FBI series don't hesitate to help Drummond find the cunning international thief known as the Fox. Nonstop action and high stakes intensify as the chase gets deadly. The Fox will stop at nothing to deliver the Koh-i-Noor to the man who believes in its deadly prophecy.  Nicholas Drummond, along with his partner, FBI Special Agent Mike Caine, lay it on the line to retrieve the diamond for Queen and country.

This is a very enjoyable read. I find that every book is fresh and new. Makes you want to keep reading. I am always sad when they end.

I've enjoyed all of Ms. Coulter's FBI series, but felt she was reaching for story lines in the last 2 or 3. I believe she may have overcome this problem with her new series and partner.
Relatively short chapters make for an easy read and multiple story lines keep you reading. I eagerly look forward to the next one and I gave this one 4 stars to get you going.

Though it started a bit slow, the introduction and formation of new characters takes time and those with the patience for it will be rewarded. I believe this is a great start to a new series and the bridge between the U.S. FBI and the Brits was well done. Having completed The Final Cut, I am glad to say it was a purely enjoyable read and I regretted not one minute spent in the company of these new 'friends'.

Average story line with an average ending.A book to read to help you sleep, interesting enough to keep you entertained,but not enough to not put down.
