Potter skillfully puts the reader in the mind of the protagonist, Sarah Sawacki. Sarah's past bedevils her relationship with her husband, and makes her a suspect in what most of us in the so-called civilized world would consider one of the worst crimes a human can commit upon another. Through her bravery, sacrifices and pure will, Sarah protects that which is priceless and through the process transforms and recaptures some of her lost dignity and innocence. I could feel her pain, sorrow and raw determination radiate through Potter's prose. As a fellow writer, I am envious of his character development! If there was one sub-theme to Chasing Innocence, it would be "Justice."
No book is perfect, right? There was one patch about 40% through where I thought the story bogged down during some of the dialogue between detectives Ferreira and Boer. I thought it went on for too long, and wasn't sure where it was going, however, that's just my opinion. I suspect most others won't care, because the rest of the story grabs your gut and refuses to let go. At times, I found myself truly angry, wanting to jump into the scene to help Sarah escape, which proves Potter is skilled at his craft.
What surprised me is that Potter isn't afraid to kill off main characters, which is a sign of a mature writer, and realistic. That made the story all the more impactful. If you like thrillers, especially those that put strong women in difficult circumstances, then Chasing Innocence deserves your time.
My only regret is that i had this book in my kindle for almost three weeks before i start reading it. If i knew then what i know now i would have start reading it from the first moment.
What an amazing book..i'm not going to write about the story much (i never do that anyway)you can read about that in all the other very good reviews of this book.
But i will like to say a few things about the writing of Mr Potter ....like what i like the most and what make me put this writer in my "Must Read List"
In this book ...you can feel the agony of a parent for his child ...his need to do anything and everything ....You can understand his physically and emotionally power like you are actually in the same room with him and live all his effort in first-hand....You can put yourself in the mind of sexual abuse woman ...and feel her fear not to go thru all this again....You can even related with a small child and see how she think when all of her life as she knew was taken away from her.
This is how vivid and full of emotion his writing is.... And this is why i will remember this book for a long long time.
As a parent this book bring me face to face with my worst nightmare and give me a lesson how one should react in time like this .....not that i wish that to anyone ..or most of all to my family .
I want to say thank you to Mr Potter for this wonderful book he share with us ...and i can't wait to read any new book from him
This is a fast paced, gritty and violent thriller. It takes a couple of chapters to find its feet but once it's off and running, you're hooked. The characters have been well thought through and are all carrying their own emotional baggage of some kind. I wasn't entirely convinced by all of Sarah's actions, but this didn't prevent my enjoyment of the book. The action jumps between what's happening to Sarah and Andrea, Adam and Brian's efforts to find them and the police investigation. Until quite near the end it's not clear who is behind the abduction or what their motivations are. To add to the tension, the author also has no compunctions about killing off at least one major character along the way.
This is an accomplished debut novel which would appeal to fans of Neil Cross.
This book was given to me for review.
