Meet FBI Special Agent Allison McNeil. Smart. Tough. Flawed. Unpredictable. When a secret webcam is found in the Georgetown bedroom of a murdered high-society call girl, everyone in Washington, DC wants the recording...especially the killer. FBI Special Agent Allison McNeil tracks down the murderer, racing against powerful interests who want to recover the video before the FBI, including an operative of the Presidential frontrunner.

The Allison McNeil series can be placed along with Alex Cross and Lincoln Rhymes as one of the most suspenseful and thoughtful crime thrillers. Love the character and the sequence of events, there where times I was so engrossed in the tale that I forgot to breath. That is what make a suspense a masterpiece. Politics in DC is a dangerous game to play. Corruption, filthy appetites, extortion, blackmail, murder are the toys that this path leaves behind for the people who dare run for the greatest prize: The President of the United States. The main goal is power and leverage; with that you can do anything. The murder of a call girl in a gruesome form, and the discovery of two cameras in her room, one of which sends the feed to an encrypted unknown location. This sets in motion some of the people involved to cover up the footage and murder. Allison McNeil, is put on the case and her main concern is catch the killer. She is one of the most promising agents and profiler and her involvement can really bring justice. Note: I received a copy free for review purposes.

The characters were very complex, and unpredictable. While I clocked the killer’s identity almost immediately, I enjoyed watching Allison unravel the mystery. Plus, the characters unpredictable behavior always left me wondering how things would end. Not only were the characters complex, but none of them were easy to pigeonhole as being either “good” or “bad.” This allowed them to cross back and forth over moral lines, making their actions that much more compelling. Another aspect of the novel I really enjoyed was the political backdrop. Being set in the Nation’s capital, there was a lot of political intrigue wrapped up in the murder case, which gave far-reaching ramifications for Allison if she was unsuccessful at solving the case. I felt this upped the stakes more than if she was just a regular detective. Gritty, compelling, and well-written, Killer Pursuit is a must read for mystery fans. Allison McNeil is a strong female character that readers can root for, and the cat and mouse game she plays with the killer will keep you on the edge of your seat. If you are looking for a great suspenseful read, than this one is definitely worth checking out. I, for one, will definitely go back and read the first novel from this series, as I can’t wait to read more books featuring this heroine. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
