Review

Jennifer Chase does not disappoint in this remarkable mystery murder novel. The plot is well thought out and the chapters flow nicely from one subject to the next. The descriptive words and the use of imagery immerses the reader directly into the story among serial killers and evil perpetrators. The tension build-up blew me away as I could not put down this novel because I was so entwined in the mystery and suspense. I felt as if I was right by Emily and Rick s sides as they put the puzzle pieces together in tracking down a sadistic serial killer. This book had me on the edge of my seat in fear and contains many twists and turns that I had not seen coming. I absolutely love a great mystery murder novel and could easily see this novel turned into a television series or motion picture movie. I highly recommend this book for all avid mystery readers and am greatly looking forward to the next novel written by Jennifer Chase. --Reviewed by Rita V for Readers Favorite

Cruelty has no shame, and those who hunt those who do evil should have none either. Dark Mind follows vigilante detective Emily Stone, who has set herself to oppose serial killers and those who would do harm to children. Going against the law for her own goals and own sense of justice, Jennifer Chase crafts a story of a woman determined to make a difference at any cost. Dark Mind is a strongly recommended pick for those who enjoy fast paced thrillers. --The Midwest Book Review

The characters are realistic, their complex personalities and interactions with each other gave the story depth and made it that much more powerful and compelling.

In Dark Mind, Jennifer Chase has created a psychopathic serial killer who blends purposefully into local society, and only lets people see the more normal side of his persona. Perhaps that's one of the primal fears shared by many of us - that our own neighbours or locals might be capable of the horror that Jennifer Chase's Dark Mind shows us is possible.

This Emily Stone novel takes her to a whole different location as she tracks child predators to the Island of Kauai. She and Rick are confronted with a lot of different problems. The story is fast moving and the excitements really builds. I couldn't put it down and had to stay with it until I finished. Great read and Jennifer Chase has done it again..

I was thrilled with how this story starts out, and how it never seems to die down, always fast paced and definitely heart pounding!
Jennifer Chase has a twisted imagination, (a 5 star imagination;), and a fascinating writing style, that keeps you wanting more! I guess it helps a bit that this is certainly my speed, my most favorite genre of all. The story was perfect, very different setting, place then what I am used to, and the terror was genuine! I am not however much into series books, at least when it comes to detective stories, FBI, although this didn't bother me one bit. It sure isn't Nancy Drew, or for the faint of heart!
The story really moves and is filled with vicious descriptions, so if you aren't one to read a serial killer book that also goes through the eyes of the killer, you may not want to pick this up! (although you are missing out on a thrilling ride!) I have to say that I haven't seen this writing style before, and I was real impressed with the adjectives used, how they were placed and the blood curdling screams that I could actually hear while I read it. I particularly enjoyed the explicitly detailed descriptions of the killer, his thoughts, his tools,and the chapters that start out with the women who he was hunting, running, and trying to get away. You could feel and smell every tiny section of the victims mind, fear, what they saw, you have to almost wonder how in the world did someone write this in such a horrific way!!

This is a terrific read from start to finish. The writing is impeccable and the story is fresh and tight. Emily stone is fragile and tough. She dispays a vulnerability most protaganists aren't allowed to expose. It's nice to read a story which doesn't follow a formula. The description of the island and it's surroundings rang true and the killer's identity was a complete surprise. Very solid thriller.

Dark Mind by Jennifer Chase is a chilling suspense that will keep you on edge as you follow Emily Stone on her quest to track down a coldblooded killer who is sacrificing women.

Emily Stone is vacationing in Hawaii with her partner Rick, but what they are about to embark on is anything, but a vacation. Emily and Rick just uncovered a child abduction ring and led local police to the perpetrators. Before heading back to the mainland the couple decides to do some sightseeing, but once they learn of the gruesome murders taking place on the island they can't help, but become involved. Emily instantly realizes the murders are the work of a serial killer. She begins her own investigation, but after several run ins with Sergeant Lani Candena she tells him what she suspects and he welcomes her expertise. Women continue to die and the group still has no suspect. Will they uncover the killer's identity before someone else dies?

Dark Mind is an electrifying thriller complete with police corruption and unthinkable crimes readers won't forget.

I recommend reading Dark Mind by Jennifer Chase. It's a spine-chiller you won't want to miss.

First let me mention that Dark Mind is book 3 in the Emily Stone Series (Book 1 - Compulsion and Book 2 - Dead Game). I had not read books 1 and 2 when I read Dark Mind. Ms. Chase does a wonderful job at giving you the back story, so even though I had not read the first two it was still easy to follow. In Dark Mind, Emily Stone takes matters into her own hands when children are kidnapped and transported to Hawaii in a child sex trafficing ring. She and boyfriend Rick head to Hawaii on the hunt for the criminals. However, once in Hawaii, a serial killer strikes. Hoping to just catch a breather and have some time to think, Emily Stone finds herself, once again, in the middle of a nasty case. Everytime her and her partners think that they have a lead, the trail gets turned upside down again. Between guns, marajuana growers, old island men, and badged law enforcement, will Emily be able to solve the murders before she finds herself the next victim?

I appreciated the detail Ms. Chase went into describing the scenery and characters. I love to be able to see in my head what the characters and surroundings look like, and I did not find myself having to fill in the blanks. There are plenty of twists and turns in this book to keep you on your toes. Every time I thought I had the suspect nailed, the next thing would happen that would throw me off! Ms. Chase had been put on my "author's to watch" list to keep track of her new book releases. I will go back and read Compulsion and Dead Game, I am very interested to find out more about Emily Stone's back life. I'm sure I will follow those two up with a reread of Dark Mind.
