Review: Deadly Pursuit

Book Review: Deadly Pursuit, by Irene Hannon, 4 stars

✩✩

As a social worker, Alison Taylor has a passion for protecting children and seeing that justice is served on their behalf. But when she starts getting harassing phone calls and bizarre "gifts," it seems she may be the one in need of protection. When her tormentor's attentions take a violent turn, her brother Cole comes to her aid, along with his new partner, an ex-Navy SEAL, Detective Mitch Morgan. As her relentless stalker turns up the heat, Mitch takes a personal interest in the case. Protecting Alison has become more than just a job--because his own happiness now depends on keeping her safe.

Genre: romantic suspense

Publication date: September 2011

Mature content: nothing sexual, but several rather explicit scenes of drug usage

Review: Deadly pursuit is a very well crafted book, where a series of seemingly unrelated events come together seamlessly. Except for the end, which is action movie worthy, I found the suspense part a bit lacking because after a while you are really given insights about what is happening to all the characters. There's not a lot of romance either because for most of the book Alison and Mitch are apart, focused on their respective jobs, and when they do come together it's mostly because something ugly happened.

As the storytelling goes, though, it's great quality and both main characters are easy to connect with. The funeral scene (no spoilers, if you read it you will know what I'm talking about) made me cry and it's not everyday a book can get me so involved. I will definitely look into more books by Irene Hannon.


Recommended.

Happy Monday,
