In college, Coulter showed a startling interest in history, eventually going on to produce a number of romantic novels set within the Regency Era. With the relative success of these novels, Coulter eventually expanded her interests, dabbling in stories set in Medieval and Viking times.
Coulter has written novels best known for very unlikeable characters, many of them showing sexist and highly immoral tendencies. Of course, if you talk about Catherine Coulter today, it isn’t her Regency Novels that people will mention, but rather the FBI Thriller series she went on to write in the 1990s.
While she enjoyed relative success before this point, it wasn’t until ‘The Cove’, the first book in the FBI Thriller series was released that Catherine Coulter began attracting interest from mainstream audiences.
Coulter wrote numerous novels in the series, and the most of them were hits in more ways than one. As such, it isn’t a surprise that Coulter decided to create a spin-off of the FBI Thriller series.
That spin-off became A Brit in the FBI. And the name aptly describes these books, which Coulter writes with the help of J.T. Ellison, another bestselling author.
The books follow Nichols Drummond, a law enforcement officer from Scotland Yard who joins the FBI, becoming the first Brit ever to achieve this feat. There are intersections and interactions between the characters in this book and those from the FBI thriller series.
The books have enjoyed a largely positive reception, with fans of the FBI Thriller series easily gravitating towards its spin-off.
