    Fast-paced suspense

    A grandfather makes an unlikely hero, but it works. There's more here than you first suspect. A good story approached from different characters' viewpoints.

    It's not great but adequate.

    Dark Pursuit is a good book. It's not great but adequate. It's not horrifying but there are moments of suspense. It's not religious - it actually seems as if the sections about praying and living for God are an afterthought. The better part of the story is her relationship with her grandfather and his housekeeper. It's not something I'd go out to buy but if you're unable to find anything else in the library that looks interesting it's not a bad book.

    It was OK

    It was page turning and thrilling, though it wasn't very original. I wasn't surprised by the ending.
    What really ruined it for me was the lack of logic in the characters. It was obvious the author wanted the plot to go a certain way and she unnaturally steered the characters that direction. A normal person would not have made the decisions the characters did. It was very obvious that the author wanted to create conflict, so she had the characters make certain decisions to create that conflict... eventhough those decisions seemed awkward and unreasonable.

    Fascinating twists and intriguing suspense

    Brandilyn Collins writes Christian suspense novels with the tag-line "Don't forget to breathe." Her novel, Dark Pursuit, certainly merits the warning. It's a story that starts with a quick trip home and just the odd thing out of place, then rushes into murder and mayhem, leaving twenty-two-year-old Kaitlan unsure who to trust. The boyfriend might be a murderer. The novelist grandfather wants nothing to do with her, nor she with him. And the police are more concerned with her past than her security.

    Of course, the grandfather's not just any old novelist. He's a suspense novelist, with a penchant for setting up scary situations and resolving them. But it's been a while and the words and the plots won't come, so it's with mixed motives that he sets out to help Kaitlan, and with mixed results.

    Surprising twists lie in the final scenes. Even if you've guessed some of them you probably won't have predicted everything. I certainly hadn't.

    The dialog creates clearly recognizable characters and relationships, and the story will have you pondering the motivations behind your own pursuits, dark or light, long after it's finished. I recommend it as an exciting, intriguing read, but don't forget to breathe.
