When I was young, the local library always did a summer reading program. If you read five books you get a pencil, 10 a notebook, and so on. I always wanted to be on the wall as the person who read the most books, but it never seemed to fail, someone always beat me.
Just talking about that dragged up another memory. Remember when we did fundraisers and we actually wanted to sell stuff because, just like the summer reading program, the more you sold the better prizes you got. Those were the days, I miss those days.
Another thing that seems to be ancient lately..really good thrillers. Writers seem to be getting lazy and stealing ideas from other books or movies. Jeff Gunhus is different though. This stories seem to be unique. His on the edge of your seat pattern of action scenes is something I admire. I can be totally disconnected from a book and then bomb, he throws in those awesome moments.
Killer Pursuit had me from the start. It started out with a bang and grabs your attention. The first few chapters are key to learning all you really need to know about the characters. Jeff is able to do this without the boring old "here's my life moments." Yes it does have a few of those, but you instantly find out the character of the characters without them even saying a word. I wish I could be half as descriptive as Jeff with my characters. I am definitely taking notes.
What's that you say? I am skirting around the book? Why yes, I am. I don't do spoilers, but I will give a light description, that hopefully tells you everything you need to know without telling you too much.
A call girl gets entangled with a bad dude. Even after her death, she has her butt covered with a hidden camera. The only problem? The cops can't figure out where the images ended up. Agent McNeil is an FBI profiler and will soon be right in the middle of this case and she won't stop until she solves the case. But who can she trust?
I'm in love with this book, it was hard to put it down. You can find this book and his others, by visiting his website.
