Coulter, Catherine. Knock Out.
An FBI/paranormal adventure that began well, but deteriorated quickly. FBI agent Dillon Savitch is in his local bank during a bank robbery; the bad guys/gals are really bad, but Savitch manages to save the day. This story line then becomes a bit superfluous as the novel progresses. It crops up intermittently and is eventually solved, but has nothing to do with the other story line.
The paranormal thread was initially intriguing; Autumn, a seven-year-old little girl, begins communicating telepathically with Agent Savitch, but as her Uncles Blessed and Grace enter the scene, the story begins to feel like a parody of evil. If a family as perverted, powerful, and insane as the Backman's existed, it is doubtful that they would limit themselves to their tiny kingdom of Bricker's Bowl; with their powers, they could have taken over the world. Of course, they were all crazy, and well, not too bright.
