Author Jennifer Chase – In The BookViral Spotlight
From the International Award Winning EMILY STONE THRILLER SERIES:
Vigilante detective Emily Stone has covertly hunted down killers and closed more serial cases than most seasoned homicide cops combined. Her exceptional profiling skills and forensic techniques, along with deductive crime scene investigations, have made her a compelling force that cannot be beat. She has reached her ultimate breaking point and now must face her toughest opponent yet – her biggest fears.
With disturbing preciseness, the Tick-Tock Killer has taken his next child victim and promised to dump the body precisely four days later, mocking police and the community. Stone struggles to balance her inner demons and ghosts from the past, against the wits of a brutal and cunning serial killer in an all-out battle of psychological warfare. Can Stone save the next child in time?
Immediately addictive, the nail biting opening chapter from Dark Pursuit sets the tone for this uncompromising and compelling thriller from international award winning author Jennifer Chase. A high stakes read, it’s clever, fast paced and inventive, the action evolving in tightly focused scenes, played out against a gamut of decidedly harrowing settings. The plot is enthralling and always plausible with Chase only delving into the detail when her narrative demands it, but what really makes this thriller so notable are her characters and Emily Stone makes for a powerful and highly memorable female lead. She lives in a world rendered in shades of grey, she’s flawed and heroic with moments of vulnerability and great resolve and this creates a real sense of place and purpose without falling back on trite genre tropes. With her dominant personality cleverly contrasted against Ricks they make a sublime pairing whilst Emily wrestles with her inner conflicts. In the vein of all great crime thrillers it’s both cleverly connived and thought provoking.
Undeniably harrowing at times, certainly entertaining, Dark Pursuit isn’t for the faint hearted, but fans of the Emily Stone series will lap it up. Sure to win a host of new followers for Jennifer Chase. It is highly recommended!
