"A thriller packed with nonstop action, real-life name-dropping and enough cutting-edge science to make you wonder how much of it could be true." —Kirkus Reviews
The newest entry in the sizzling international thriller series featuring Nicholas Drummond, from #1 New York Times–bestselling author Catherine Coulter.
Freshly minted FBI agent Nicholas Drummond is barely out of his Quantico training when he and his partner, Mike Caine, are called to investigate a stabbing on Wall Street.
Their investigation, however, yields more questions than answers. It quickly becomes clear that the victim, John Pearce, was more than the naval historian and antiquities dealer he appeared to be. What Drummond doesn’t know is that buying and selling rare books was Pearce’s cover, and that he had devoted his life to discovering the whereabouts of a missing World War I U-boat concealing a stash of gold bullion, and an unexpected surprise that only raises more questions. When Drummond and Caine find both of Pearce’s adult children have disappeared, the case assumes a new sense of urgency. The FBI agents know their best lead lies in the victim’s cryptic final words—“The key is in the lock.” But what key? What lock?
The search for Adam and Sophia Pearce takes them on an international manhunt, which threatens to run them afoul of an eccentric billionaire industrialist with his own plans not only for the lost gold, but the creation of a weapon unlike anything the world has ever seen.

That can't be an accident
I'm very interested now because Drummond is the name of a female pirate rumored to have loved or been related to Blackbeard. Now a Drummond is back on the seas looking for a stash of gold. I am way to excited for this to be released!
The Lost Key
Amazing, riveting, couldn't put down. Enjoyed immensely! Enjoyed all Catherine Coulter's books.
Started out great. By the time I was half way through the book I felt we switched authors. The main characters dialogue was shallow and boring. It was a struggle to finish the book. The more I read the worse it got. There have only been two books I have failed to finish in my life and I am an avid reader that has been reading avidly for 55 years. This was almost the third book I failed to finish. I love Catherine Coulters books but this was most disappointing. Not vintage Coulter!
