Author Jennifer Chase introduces us to the great character of Emily Stone. Working anonymously with her camera, computer, and trusted weapon at her constant disposal, Stone goes on the hunt for some of the most violent and deplorable criminals one can imagine. She uses her police background and natural ability to get inside the criminal mind to gather detailed, on-the-scene evidence. Then, she sends her information to the police and another villain is taken off the streets. When Stone's identity is revealed to the latest killer on her radar screen, the fast-paced action that unfolds becomes the heart of the story and takes the reader on an amazing journey of heightened adrenaline and fear.
One of the greatest strengths in Chase's writing is the careful unfolding of her characters' personalities. The man known to the readers for most of Compulsion's pages only as The Killer is first revealed through the gruesome crimes he commits.Read more ›
This author is a strange writer. The twists and turns don't play fair with the reader as important info is kept from the reader leaving the reader sitting there thinking: "Say whaaaaa?"
The concept of an alpha female heroine who secretly solves crimes where children disappear is excellent. But this author does not know how to write in a way that commands empathy and involvement.
I was fascinated by the prose style. It's like getting a novel via Western Union Telegraph or one twitter 140character tweet at a time. You read info... she did and he did and this happened....
but you can't sink into the adventure because the style is so bad.
The love scene between the heroine and hero was most laughable I've ever written.
I'm not a fan of romance novels but Tami Hoag knows how to write a good love scene in an excellent suspense thriller!
Anyway.... save your money and buy a book that is worth your time! This one is not... I don't plan to buy any more books by this writer.
She needs to go back to the drawing board...or take some courses. James Patterson supposedly writes 80page outlines planning his books. This book is like she wrote the outline and left it at that ....
If she has a friend she could work with the way James Patterson does... she could do the outlines and let the friend do the writing.
whatever... sometimes even if you can make a little money writing... you shouldn't if you can do something else far better...
I don't see this book as written being accepted by any reputable publishing house.
