Immediately addictive, the nail biting opening chapter from Dark Pursuit sets the tone for this uncompromising and compelling thriller from international award winning author Jennifer Chase. A high stakes read, it s clever, fast paced and inventive, the action evolving in tightly focused scenes, played out against a gamut of decidedly harrowing settings. The plot is enthralling and always plausible with Chase only delving into the detail when her narrative demands it, but what really makes this thriller so notable are her characters and Emily Stone makes for a powerful and highly memorable female lead. She lives in a world rendered in shades of grey, she s flawed and heroic with moments of vulnerability and great resolve and this creates a real sense of place and purpose without falling back on trite genre tropes. With her dominant personality cleverly contrasted against Ricks they make a sublime pairing whilst Emily wrestles with her inner conflicts. In the vein of all great crime thrillers it s both cleverly connived and thought provoking. Undeniably harrowing at times, certainly entertaining, Dark Pursuit isn t for the faint hearted, but fans of the Emily Stone series will lap it up. Sure to win a host of new followers for Jennifer Chase. It is highly recommended! --Reviewed by Book Viral
Dark Pursuit (Emily Stone Series Book 5) by Jennifer Chase is an action filled thriller that was hard to put down. I did not read books one to four but Dark Pursuit stands alone as a great read. Emily is a detective who works with her friend and love interest, Rick. Emily has quietly solved several crimes and sends the results anonymously to the police for them to capture the bad guys. Emily is now faced with a new case when the serial Tick-Tock killer has kidnapped and killed several young girls. Emily is determined not to let his latest victim, Sara, be harmed. The Tick-Tock killer plays a game of cat and mouse with Emily, Rick and the police by promising to end Sara s life in exactly four days. The chase is dangerous, frightening and scary as it pushes Emily mentally and physically further than she has ever been on any other case. As the hour draws near, the exciting climactic end will leave you holding your breath. Dark Pursuit is a well written thriller that took me into both the detective's and the killer's minds. Jennifer Chase has expertly written a story that portrays a psychological picture of both evil and good by letting us understand what Emily and the Tick-Tock killer are doing and why they are doing it. The climax of the last few chapters kept me glued to my Kindle until I reached the end. If you like thrillers, mysteries, and mind boggling adventure then this is a must-read. I can t wait to go back and read the other Emily Stone books and anything else that Jennifer Chase has written. --Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Examples of errors
Wrong word used and poor sentence structure: "The map of the abandoned fort seemed like finding a needle in the PREVERBAL haystack." (seriously... preverbal??)
Sentence structure: "Alvarado made the appropriate phone calls, began coordinating efforts and back up, which he held them on standby until he could verify the location." (and ... location of what??)
Another wrong word used: "The cold temperature of the water numbed his arms and legs.... It was clear that HYPERTHERMIA would set in soon. (Oh, for heaven's sake!)
All in all, if I could separate the rating into categories, I'd rate Dark Pursuit a 4 for story and character development and a 1 for editing and proofreading.
We have the killer who is really nuts. He reminds me of the killers in John Sandford novels and this book at times is written like that where we see through the eyes of the killer. We see his thoughts and partially why he does what he does.
We have the element of danger and intrigue and the detective who is close to solving the case and runs into his vigilante detectives. The crime itself is horrific and just has you wanting Emily and her partner finding the killer and taking him down. The danger element is suspenseful enough to keep you wanting more and the pursuit is intriguing.
This is a nicely written crime thriller that keeps you on the edge while giving you little snippets to help you learn more but also has you wanting more and intriguing you enough to urge you to read on. the characters draw you in and the look into the mind of Emily and the killer is fascinating. it is written in the style of John Sandford meets JD Robb with the killer’s thoughts and the detective thoughts who has the amazing man by her side. A great crime novel that captures you and keeps you intrigued.

Another superb Emily Stone story. I really enjoyed how her history at the police department was woven into this new book. She is a very determined, strong, and unstoppable character with her own problems and issues. The action scenes are very believable, Emily is not a super-hero, and she can be hurt...but she does not give up! Looking forward to more from author, Jennifer Chase.
