Product description


Emily Stone, former police officer, is a vigilante detective who spends her time hunting down serial killers, particularly those that prey on children. Because of her exceptional profiling skills, she and her partner-lover Rick have closed more serial cases than many seasoned homicide detectives. Her prolific profiling skills and outstanding forensic techniques, along with deductive crime scene investigations, have set her up as major thorn in the side of many serial killers. This story opens with a vehicle pursuit that immediately grabs the reader s attention. At the end of the chase, Emily learns the true identity of the killer and almost loses her life in the process. The killer decides to let her live, at least for a while. In this book, Emily and Rick (a former detective), are hunting the Tick-Tock Killer, a serial killer who targets children. The killer is mocking the authorities by telling them where he will dump the next body. This creates a heightened sense of urgency for everyone concerned. Can Emily find and stop him before another child becomes a victim... The fast paced action and plot momentum keep the reader s attention to the very end. Although this book is part of a series, there is an extensive back story that fills the reader in on why and how Emily has chosen to pursue this career. The author has created a strong female protagonist that shows strengths and weaknesses. Her characterization is well developed and the plotting is superior as well. I recommend this book for developed and the plotting is superior as well. I recommend this book for anyone that enjoys great, well-written thriller. --Reviewed by Paul Johnson for Readers' Favorite

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! --Reviewed by Book Viral

Dark Pursuit (Emily Stone Series Book 5) by Jennifer Chase is an action filled thriller that was hard to put down. I did not read books one to four but Dark Pursuit stands alone as a great read. Emily is a detective who works with her friend and love interest, Rick. Emily has quietly solved several crimes and sends the results anonymously to the police for them to capture the bad guys. Emily is now faced with a new case when the serial Tick-Tock killer has kidnapped and killed several young girls. Emily is determined not to let his latest victim, Sara, be harmed. The Tick-Tock killer plays a game of cat and mouse with Emily, Rick and the police by promising to end Sara s life in exactly four days. The chase is dangerous, frightening and scary as it pushes Emily mentally and physically further than she has ever been on any other case. As the hour draws near, the exciting climactic end will leave you holding your breath. Dark Pursuit is a well written thriller that took me into both the detective's and the killer's minds. Jennifer Chase has expertly written a story that portrays a psychological picture of both evil and good by letting us understand what Emily and the Tick-Tock killer are doing and why they are doing it. The climax of the last few chapters kept me glued to my Kindle until I reached the end. If you like thrillers, mysteries, and mind boggling adventure then this is a must-read. I can t wait to go back and read the other Emily Stone books and anything else that Jennifer Chase has written. --Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite
