Vigilante detective Emily Stone has covertly hunted down killers and closed more serial cases than most seasoned homicide cops combined. Her exceptional profiling skills and forensic techniques, along with deductive crime scene investigations, have made her a compelling force that cannot be beat.

She has reached her ultimate breaking point and now must face her toughest opponent yet – her biggest fears.

With preciseness, the Tick-Tock Killer has taken his next child victim and promised to dump the body precisely four days later, mocking police and the community. Stone struggles to balance her inner demons and ghosts from the past, against the wits of a brutal and cunning serial killer in an all-out battle of psychological warfare.

Can Stone save the next child in time? Dark Pursuit is an action-packed cat and mouse game that will take you to dark places rarely explored. 

Walki's Review

A serial killer, nicknamed the Tick-Tock Killer by the media, kidnaps female children and kills them after exactly four days. Emily and Rick, ‘Shadow Detectives’, are on his trail. They almost caught him once and intend to stop him before he kills Sara Littleton, his latest victim.

This is the fifth book in the Emily Stone series and Emily is a character with a strong personality in the tradition of V.I. Warshawski (created by Sara Paretsky), Kat Colorado (created by Karen Kijewski) and Lauren Laurano (created by Sandra Scoppetone). Emily and her partner both have a police background.

‘Dark Pursuit’ is a captivating thriller, filled with tension. It starts with a car chase and is frequently fast-paced. Its main character, Emily Stone, is intelligent and tenacious. Jennifer Chase created a credible role model who works hard and with great focus to get results. ‘Dark Pursuit’ is a gripping read that would have been even better if typos weren’t so many.
