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

More About the Author

The love that author Jennifer Chase has for books and writing began with the weekly trips that her mom would take with her to the local library. Jennifer would load up her arms with books and spend the week pouring over them until the next visit brought the opportunity to discover even more authors and stories. Before long, she was taking pen to paper and a lifelong connection with creating characters and plotlines was made.

Jennifer has found her niche in the writing world by integrating another passion, criminology, into her work. She holds a bachelors degree in police forensics and a masters in criminology, academic pursuits that developed out of her curiosity about the criminal mind as well as from her own experience with a violent sociopath, providing Jennifer with deep personal investment in every story she tells.

This research background has assisted Jennifer in writing multiple crime thrillers, including Compulsion, Dead Game, Silent Partner, Dark Mind and Dead Burn, earning multiple readers' choice awards and other accolades along the way, including a recent gold medal awarded for Dead Burn by a panel of professionals in the publishing industry as part of the International Book Awards. She also has published a non-fiction book, How to Write a Screenplay, which offers a step-by-step guide to this special craft. In addition to her own writing work, Jennifer assists other authors with their own publishing efforts and does some consulting work in the criminology field.

Jennifer Chase was born and raised in California and still lives there with her husband, dogs and cats. In addition to writing and studying, Jennifer enjoys spending time outdoors, both at the beach and hiking, and engaging in some amateur photography.

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..

But it can't possibly be this one. It seems like it is unedited. The POV switches without rhyme or reason. I read a lot and get a lot of books from new writers. This one was a major disappointment. Grammar, syntax, spelling, the errors abound.

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.

I gave up trying to keep track of the characters. Every chapter seemed to be a new scenario and new characters. Disappointed.

Vigilante detective Emily Stone and partner Rick Lopez are on the pursuit of a child slavery ring that abducted a nine-year-old girl from San Francisco, which leads them to the paradise island of Kauai. The leads they have take them to an out-of-the way ramshackle of a building, where not only do they save the girl they went to rescue, but also another little girl that was being held captive. With the child slavery ring busted and the abductors in jail, Emily and Rick thought they would enjoy the island paradise ... that is until the brutal sacrificial murders of a couple of young women has a serial killer on the loose, and Emily and Rick find themselves back in business with their covert investigation to hunt down the serial killer. Will Emily and Rick find the serial killer before he strikes again? Will Emily and Rick be placing themselves in danger? Will their latest covert investigation lead them to a possible deadly outcome on the island paradise?

Dark Mind is a fast-paced chilling crime thriller that will captivate you and leave you sitting on the edge of your seat as you turn the pages. The storyline is well written, the author weaves a story that is intriguing and keeps the reader guessing what will happen next with every gripping twist and turn. The attention to detail in regard to the crime investigation is first rate, the author utilizes her experience in the criminology and forensic areas to provide a story that diehard crime thriller fans crave. The description of Kauai's setting is breathtaking, it took me back to when I vacationed there many years ago. 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.

There really is nothing like reading a story that keeps your attention and makes it difficult to put it down! Of course some housework goes untouched while you are reading but that's OK. I am a big fan of thriller's that have you wondering who did it and why and really takes you through the whole process of how it get's solved. It's one thing to watch a movie but something totally different when you let your imagination paint the picture for you. In Dark Mind, you are not only taken from California to Kauai, paradise if you ask me, but taken through an investigation with Emily and her team who is in search of a serial killer. This story does not stop from the moment it starts. Fast, Fast, Fast paced is how the story goes and you can't help but run with it. The fact that it is written by an actual criminologist really gives you a great insight into how crimes are solved and the things they experience. A great story for anyone looking for an edge of your seat read!
