Social worker Alison Taylor has a passion for protecting children. But now it seems she needs protecting. When her tormentor's attentions take a violent turn, she calls in reinforcements--her police-detective brother, Cole, and his new partner, ex-Navy SEAL Mitch Morgan. As her relentless stalker turns up the heat and the danger intensifies, Mitch takes a personal interest in the case. Because protecting Alison has become more than a job; his future depends on keeping her safe.

A Complete Package

If you are looking for suspense, romance, and a bit of action, this book had it all. Overall it was a really good book. I found it hard to put the book down. Well worth the credit and in my opinion this is the best book from Irene Hannon yet.

great story, boring narrator

I love this author and I liked this story. Was disappointed in narration. It put me to sleep. Could not tell the difference between characters.

Too violent

I have enjoyed reading Ms. Hannon books. No cussing, no sex but romance. This is the last one I will read. There were other ways she could have illustrated the bad guy's meanness without killing the little dog we had grown to love.

Sad, angry, tearful, and explosive thriller

This book had more violence in it then Ms. Hannon’s other books. That being said this book kept me on the edge of my seat and brought many emotions to the surface.

On the Edge of My Seat

Would you consider the audio edition of Deadly Pursuit to be better than the print version?

I did not read the book but listened to the Audible version. There are some narrators I like better than others. This narrator showed a lot of feeling in the voices.

What other book might you compare Deadly Pursuit to and why?

Sandra Brown's Seeing Red is similar. A lot of drama and suspense mixed with a few surprises.

Which scene was your favorite?

Allison's compassion for children and people in need was demonstrated by her interaction with Eric in the grocery store.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Eric getting the license plate of the truck driven by Darrell. His need to help his friend and his perception that she was in trouble.

Any additional comments?

I'm a senior citizen and though I enjoy the romance and mystery, I get tired of too much detailed sex scenes. Irene Hannon does it just right.

Pleasantly Surprised

Would you listen to Deadly Pursuit again? Why?

Yes. It was a great story!

What did you like best about this story?

The suspense was good, and I loved the beginning relationship between the characters--very believable. I also enjoyed that it was clean without being too cheesy or preachy.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Better emotional inflection. There was no difference between when the characters were conversing normally or in the midst of an emotional crisis. It was also hard sometimes to tell the difference between some of the characters and it seemed the narrator changed his voices, and used the wrong voice for the wrong character which just added confusion.
