(Emily Stone Series #4)

Terrified California residents face the shocking dilemma of yet another serial killer roaming freely in their neighborhoods. However, this time it is an evolving serial killer anomaly that relentlessly searches for, hunts down, and ingeniously traps his victims before unleashing his fiery rage. Always two steps ahead of the cops and fire investigators, the killer hones in on the next sinful target leaving a trail of bones and ashes behind as evidence. It rocks the criminal justice system to the core as a string of arson murders hits inside their turf.

Vigilante detective Emily Stone hunts serial killers and child abductors, covertly and under the law enforcement radar, with her intrinsic skills of criminal profiling and forensic investigation. With Stone’s toughest case yet, the arson serial killer immediately crosses her radar and sends her into the dark territory of a lethal pyromaniac’s mind – to the point of no return.
While following the clues of the relentless firebomber, Stone grabs the attention of a government anti-terrorist organization called GATE that oversees all law enforcement cases across the U.S., which now focuses their sights on her proven abilities. They have very specific plans for her, whether she likes it or not.

Everything teeters on the edge of reality, as Stone must battle for her life between a hired assassin and an arson serial killer. Lines are drawn on both sides of the law. Friendships and lovers are tested.

Everyone sins… Are you willing to pay for yours?

Dark Mind

(Emily Stone Series #3)

A Serial Killer Plagues an Island Paradise

Vigilante detective Emily Stone continues her covert pursuits to find serial killers and child abductors, all under the radar while shadowing police investigations.

Emily searches for an abducted nine-year-old girl taken by ruthless and enterprising slave brokers. Following the clues from California to the garden island of Kauai, she begins to piece together the evidence and ventures deep into the jungle.

It doesn’t take long before Emily is thrown into the middle of murder, mayhem, and conspiracy. Locals aren’t talking as a serial killer now stalks the island, taking women in a brutal frenzy of ancient superstitions and folklore. Local cops are unprepared for what lies ahead. In a race against the clock, Emily and her team must identify the killer before time runs out.

“This author captivates and charms the reader with her many impressive writing skills—particularly for setting the scenes. And even as she engages the reader with vividly descriptive sights, smells and feel of the enchanting island of Kauai in Hawaii, she ratchets up terror, tension and suspense.”

Highly Recommended by reviewer: Jan Evan Whitford, Allbooks Reviews

Dead Game
(Emily Stone Series #2)
In this Video Game, ‘Game Over’ Means You’re Dead
     In her independent efforts to catch child killers, Emily Stone discovers the evidence that the cops can’t—or won’t—uncover. Now, this covert investigator is back on the hunt for the world’s most sick and twisted murderers. But even with help from ex-police detective Rick Lopez, this time she’s facing her most dangerous opponent yet.
     The headlines in the San Jose Mercury News blare updates on a serial killer who seems able to slaughter with impunity. Men, women—it doesn’t matter; the victims serve only to satisfy a perverted need to kill.  The killer watches the moment of death on multiple computer screens, over and over again. The only connection is that they’re all devotees of the latest video-game craze—a sophisticated brain-puzzler called EagleEye.
     When the killer goes after Lopez’s law-enforcement mentor, Lopez and Stone decide to give the cops a little extra, unsolicited help. What follows takes them deep inside a shocking high-tech world, a kind of social-networking community for serial killers. But when they start getting too close to the truth, all hell’s going to break loose.
     Now, Stone and Lopez become the killer’s next target as Stone must make a difficult decision to leave the ones she loves in an all-or-nothing effort for survival. Can they stay alive long enough to blow the whistle on this unlikely perpetrator?
“Chase is at the top of my author list.  Don’t miss this one!” 
Reader’s Favorite
“The tension, twists and turns in Dead Game are perfect!  This thriller was truly a “read through in one sitting” for me and I loved everything that Jennifer Chase put into this, her second novel.  I’ve just added Jennifer Chase to my list of “must-read” authors!”
G.A. Bixler, IP Book Reviewer
“Dead Game is a deftly crafted piece of writing.  All I can say is that Jennifer Chase has an evil mind!  I suspect that her having a master’s degree in Criminology might be a contributing factor.”

(Emily Stone Series #1)
When Serial Killers Terrorize a California Beach Community, One Woman Stands in Their Way
     Emily Stone doesn’t have a badge. But that hasn’t stopped her from tracking down some of the West’s most dangerous child-killers. Armed with a digital SLR camera, laptop computer and her trusty Beretta, Stone uses her innate gift for detective work to identify the perps—and then anonymously e-mail the evidence to the cops.
     Now, the hunt for two brazen serial killers on the loose right in her own coastal California town threatens to expose Stone’s identity—unraveling her carefully constructed cover and jeopardizing her life’s work. But when she gets too close to the action, this razor-sharp hunter becomes the hunted. Cooperating with the handsome local police detective could be the only hope for stopping the rampage directed at unsuspecting young women—and saving herself. Can they piece together the clues in time?
     Compulsion mixes CSI-style investigation with a ripped-from-the-headlines plot and a dose of romance for a keeps-you-guessing, fast-paced and savvy thriller, right up until the shocking finale.

Chase has really outdone herself with the first in a series of cop thrillers. Compulsion is nothing but the quintessential page-turner that every reader hopes for when they first open a new book. Comparable to the likes of Lawrence Sanders’ Deadly Sins series, Compulsion and the books to follow are sure to generate a loyal following.”

 Samantha Kellenberger, Bengal Book Reviews

“This is truly a top-notch mystery – thriller of a read.  One that has thought out characters, defined so well that you feel as if you are part of their lives, and a storyline that is mysterious, and chilling, yet delivers a personal touch that brings realism to the mix.”
Shirley Johnson/Senior Reviewer, MidWest Book Reviews

“Her first book, Compulsion, is a fascinating story of serial murderers, pedophiles, and the one amazing woman who is able to bring them all to justice.  When a book contains all these elements and is well-written, which Compulsion most certainly is, you have the recipe for an amazing read.”

    When will book 7 in the emily stone series come out? Book 6 said “coming in 2018”, but I can’t find it anywhere.


    • Thank you for your query. Unfortunately, Book 7, Dark Lies, was set back due to a contractual agreement for another series (Det. Katie Scott) with Bookouture. I’ve been re-evaluating, and it will be released in fall/winter. Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂


  9. Jean McIntyre says:

    I’m looking for Chip Palmer, book 3. Said coming 2019. Can you advise. Really enjoying this series and looking forward to the next instalment


    • Hi Jean. I’m so glad that you’re enjoying the series. It was one of the most fun to write. I apologize, I was picked up by a publisher for the Detective Katie Scott Series and it pushed some of my other works behind. You will be seeing book 3, Evidence of the Crime slated for 2021. I will be updating on latest releases on my blog.
