PURSUIT BY GENE HACKMAN - A QUICK LOOK!,
This review is from: Pursuit (Mass Market Paperback)
Gene Hackman is no stranger. As two time Academy Award winning actor, he is a household name worldwide. He acted in such classics as The French Connection, The Conversation , Unforgiven , Superman , and Young Frankenstein. He retired from acting in 2004 and began a second career as a novelist. After co-writing a number of historical novels, he wrote a fine western titled Payback at Morning Peak. And moving forward from there, he is crossing over to thriller with his latest novel.
Pursuit is the story of Sergeant Julie Worth of the Missouri State Patrol. She’s a no-nonsense cop, sharp and strong-willed. When she takes down a shopping mall shooter, the Missouri State Criminal Investigation Unit hands Julie cold case duty. Confined to the office, Worth browses through old files when one particular case involving the disappearance of a teenager catches her attention. When she is unintentionally drawn into an investigation that closes in on the kidnapper, things begin to take a dangerous turn. Cheryl, Worth’s teenage daughter, is kidnapped.
Now it is up to Worth to get her daughter back. But Charles Clegg is no ordinary soul. He is a monster, who kidnapped and killed women. Pushing herself almost off the edge, Worth hunts for Clegg while Cheryl’s life is hanging in the balance.
Pursuit by Gene Hackman is wonderfully crafted. It will keep you on the edge of your seat with its gripping story and sharp plot.
