Dead Burn , a new novel by Jennifer Chase, is one of those very special books that not long after starting to read it, you very quickly realise that you have found an amazingly well developed and written story that quickly reels you in right from the very start. I really enjoyed reading this book. Jennifer Chase s use of a very clear and descriptive writing style allows a reader to cognitively experience the emotions and events that take place within and between the different characters in this particular gripping and absorbing story. The psychological and behavioural profiles used by the author for each of the individual characters found within this book are very real and you can see that the author s professional background clearly stands out in relation to this particular aspect in the very strong story line. In trying to provide some descriptors as to what Dead Burn is all about and without actually providing any spoilers for this book, I would briefly say that Dead Burn is a fictional story about crime, forensic profiling and the tracking and the catching of some quite disturbed criminals. This book contains adventure, thrills and spills, quite a few haunting moments with also a bit of romance thrown into the mix as well! I would highly recommend Dead Burn by Jennifer Chase as a very good and addictive forensic crime read. This book is currently only available in Kindle e-book format from Amazon, but I can see this book eventually becoming a print book best seller and possibly even being produced as a film. It is that good! Also, it is currently very reasonably priced! This is the very first book that I have read that has been written by the author Jennifer Chase. I am now looking forward hopefully, to reading further new books in this particular series by Jennifer! --Reviewed by The Secret Writer
