Critical Pursuit Book Review


About the Book
Officer Brinna Caruso has built a reputation at the precinct as the cop to call when a child goes missing. For Brinna, it's personal because she was once one of them. Brinna and her K-9 search and rescue dog, Hero, will stop at nothing to find a missing child, no matter the stakes.

Detective Jack O'Reilly isn't ready to return to his homicide duties after losing his wife to a drunk driver. He's on the downside of his career, and bent on revenge, when he's assigned as Brinna's partner. While on patrol, Jack struggles between his quest for personal justice and his responsibility to those around him, especially his partner.

Skeptical of Jack's motives, Brinna isn't sure she can rely on her new partner, whose reckless abandon endangers the safety of those around him. But when a man surfaces with an MO similar to the criminal who abducted Brinna twenty years earlier, Brinna and Jack must cast aside previous judgments and combine efforts to catch the kidnapper and finally allow Brinna the peace stolen from her as a child.

My Review

I really enjoyed the start of this book because of Brinna's character. I like her personality and desire to see that kidnappers are caught for their crime. It's sad because while this book is fiction, children disappear every day. Brinna has history and was once abducted so she really understands the situation. The person who abducted her discovers her again once an article goes out about Brinna and her life. This takes the book on a different turn aside from all of Brinna's own cases, she is soon to be apart of her own. She is targeted and the man thinks it's a game. Some of this story reminded me a little of Ted Dekker with the sick mind game that the "bad guy" plays.

To be honest there were a few times when I thought the book was wordy, I had gone five chapters and nothing had really happened. That being said this is still a good book and great if you need a little suspense.

I rate four stars.
