Dark Pursuit by Brandilyn Collins

Dark Pursuit by Brandilyn Collins (Zondervan) is a thrilling read! I’ve read other books by Brandilyn, but this is the first book that all but took my breath away. At one point, I even ran into the living room, rattled off the plot to my husband, then darted back to the bedroom to curl up and finish the book. One appeal of this book is the short, clipped chapters. I’ve seen this style by authors like James Patterson and Brandt Dobson. I think Brandilyn has mastered the clipped, thrilling chapters. Probably my favorite aspect of this story was the ageing grandfather and his failing memory. I ached for him, longed for him to “get it right” to save his granddaughter.

Here’s the blurb from Zondervan’s website for Dark Pursuit:

Kaitlan Sering’s estranged grandfather, novelist Darell Brooke, was the legendary King of Suspense—until an auto accident left him unable to concentrate. Now she’s begging him to protect her from a real serial killer. Can his muddled mind devise a plan to catch the murderer?

In all honesty, one thing I’m not a fan of—and this is strictly personal preference—is the fatal twist at the end. I like twists. I really do, and I write them into my books, but for some reason, this one made me feel cheated. As someone with a degree in psychology, I absolutely loved . . . well, I’m not going to spoil the ending. :-D
Definitely worth the read!!
