Overview

“‘Blind Pursuit’ is a nail-bitingly suspenseful police procedural…muscular, Elmore Leonard-esque crime tale of a terrifying abduction…relentless, lean-and-mean page-turner plotting and a grimly satisfying ending.” - Kirkus Reviews

Overview

“‘Blind Pursuit’ is a nail-bitingly suspenseful police procedural…muscular, Elmore Leonard-esque crime tale of a terrifying abduction…relentless, lean-and-mean page-turner plotting and a grimly satisfying ending.” - Kirkus Reviews


When eight-year-old Jennifer Follett doesn’t return home from school one day, the rigidly ordered lives of Edmund and Caroline Follett–a power couple with an expensive house outside Albany, New York–are suddenly upended. First comes the waiting; next comes the dread; finally, they are forced to think the unthinkable, as a wayward twelve-year-old boy admits that he watched from the woods as their daughter, whom they expected to board a school bus at the bottom of the driveway, got into a black sedan instead.

Although the Folletts’ eccentric young nanny, Hannah, is less than forthcoming about why she let Jennifer out of her sight, police investigators soon begin to suspect another husband-and-wife pair: Gerald and Claire Sandoval, casual acquaintances of the Folletts who own a black LTD. But why would the model churchgoing couple kidnap a young girl? While they grow more and more convinced that the Sandovals are involved, the police are unable to find as much evidence to back up their suspicions. Frustrated by the law’s presumed innocent safeguards, the Folletts determine to do whatever is necessary to get Jennifer back. Meanwhile, the well-meaning but incautious investigators go far beyond the call of duty in their desire to solve the crime. In their “blind pursuit,” the search for Jennifer draws them deep into the upstate New York woods and into a chilling physical and psychological confrontation with evil.

Editorial Reviews

The Los Angeles Times Book Review - Susan Salter Reynolds
"Jones is unpredictable and, therefore, terrifying. His characters are knowable, if changeable and complicated. If you say yes to his use of language (like deciding to read poetry) you will not be able to shake him. Jones is a surgeon throughout the novel, extracting the kernels of relationships, the black holes in the characters’ characters and giving even the smallest cameo roles unforgettable, essential quirks (reminiscent of Hitchcock).”
Salon - Gary Krist
“Blind Pursuit” stoops to little of the crude button-pushing typical of child-kidnapping thrillers. As in “A Single Shot“, Jones’s 1996 novel about a hunter who accidentally shoots a teenage runaway, the interior story is as gripping as the exterior plot, both unfolding with an awful inexorability.”
Chicago Tribune - Conan Putnam
“High-stakes drama is what the thriller genre demands, and Jones delivers it in spades.”
Naples Daily News - Ken Moore
“An edge of-the seat kind of thriller –difficult to put down even for a moment. Jones develops his characters superbly, then forces readers to accompany them into claustrophobic situations….a finely tuned story that takes your breath away.”
Pocono Record - Michelle Lester
“If you read novels for the sheer beauty created from a talented writer’s mind’s eye, (‘Blind Pursuit‘) is a must.”
