Get ready for a page-turner! Compulsion is a thriller that will chill you as you turn up the heat flipping through the pages to see what will happen next. The action is furious and quick-paced. The plot twists and turns deliciously. The characters are engaging and will make you feel as if you know them intimately. God bless you if you ever meet up with a serial killer such as the two demons who do their dastardly deeds in this book!

I have not read a chiller that was as engaging as this book in years, though Ms. Chase's sequel won't disappoint either. I actually read her next book, Dead Game, first. It didn't really matter except for the fact that I already had a clue as to how the first book might turn out for the heroic protagonist, Emily Stone.

Emily Stone is a former sheriff who becomes a one-woman sleuth of pedophile and serial killers as the result of a personal childhood tragedy. She stealthily stalks those who would victimize the vulnerable and unsuspecting.

I loved every moment of my read! I have not been as engaged in a thriller since the books of Stephen King or Dean Koontz. The thing that I love about Ms. Chase's characters are that they are so much more fleshed out than some characters within other thrillers. Ms. Chase obviously is an adept student of human nature and she relates well with her fellow woman and man.

I also loved the fact that this book, along with its sequel, has a spiritual dimension. I will leave that to you to determine for yourself. The beauty of that was that I felt even more drawn into the stories since they reminded me of the untold mysteries of life. Ms. Chase has developed a series that is bound to be as successful as those of other well-established writers. Don't miss either of her first two books. I will be anxiously awaiting the next book in the series.

Ruined again

It is a stirring indictment of our educational system that so many people cannot distinguish between a book review and a book report.

    Disgusting!

    I was never able to get beyond the first several pages, because the entire premise was so abhorrent! Don't bother buying this one! This one should be rated - Stars for being so over-the-top disgusting.
