Greg Dalhart is easily the best software engineer of his generation, but almost nobody knows it. He taught computers to reason by themselves, and used them to dramatically leverage his own genius. In three intense years, he created software that can find any fugitive in the U.S.
Now it is tracking him down as he runs for his life. Suddenly Greg Dalhart is worth many millions of dollars dead.
He never should have survived the first twenty-four hours, but proved astonishingly elusive. Soon the killers after him, and the woman with him, will learn the same thing: Greg Dalhart and his software are not at all what they had seemed -- and one of the two is evil.
There's a classic chase story here as action, suspense, and romance race together from Naples, Florida to the mountains of northern Georgia. One imagines both men and women turning pages quickly -- but then slowing to think more deeply as the real story begins to emerge.
The powerful interests after Dalhart desperately want his life. That's the chase story. However, those interests next will want the average American's freedom, and that's the real story. Readers discover just how close electronic surveillance brings them to living in an East Germany. Dalhart's technology already does, in credible ways, what the East German secret police could only dream about.
Dalhart might stop the impending tyranny, but will he even try?

Reviewed by Michelle Stanley for Readers' Favorite The Dalhart Pursuit is an engaging mystery by Randall Jarmon. Greg Dalhart is a gifted software engineer who creates a unique programme called Rescuer. Its primary function is to locate missing kids and fugitives using their personal data. Greg sells the software to GlimmerSeek, and Flogger, a director, hire assassins to kill Greg’s friend and frame him. Greg has five days to elude the killers, and if he survives, he’ll get his payment. Investigator Jill Brennan is given the case and believes Greg is innocent. This makes her Flogger’s next target. The assassins think killing Greg will be another easy murder, but are proven wrong when they are outwitted by him. This bizarre crime angers Greg, more so as his movements are monitored by a computer programme he created. He resorts to using his specialised combat skills no one knows about, so he can get his life back to normal. This is a story that will make readers reflect deeply on their privacy. Although the book is fiction, it made me more conscious about the things I do, both on the internet and otherwise. How far will governments and corporations go to spy on civilians, in order to gather information on them? I like the author’s writing style and think the plot is convincing. He makes a few of his characters unique, and the plot itself is suspenseful, very cleverly written with a bit of humour thrown in. The Dalhart Pursuit by Randall Jarmon is an impressive novel that I enjoyed reading.
Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite The Dalhart Pursuit by Randall Jarmon is an awesome book. Greg Dalhart has written a brilliant software program that can cause amazing changes to the United States by finding any fugitive or missing child. Dalhart has sold this program and he has now become the bad guy that the program is searching for. Greg is forced to run for his life. Jill Brennan, a state police investigator, has been given Greg’s computer and after much research she realizes that Dalhart is guilty of nothing. The two soon meet, quickly fall in love and find themselves on the run. They face almost being killed and together work out a plan to try to clear their names, plus save the software from falling into the wrong hands. It is hard to tell the good guys from the bad because each of the characters has a valid reason for doing what they are doing. The Dalhart Pursuit will keep you on the edge of your seat as it gets more and more exciting with each turn of the page. Randall Jarmon is brilliant in the development of the plot and the personalities of each character in this mind boggling thriller. Randall Jarmon is very clear in explaining that this book is pure fiction, but if you use just a little imagination the question cannot be ignored – can this happen in real life????? I have not read a book this good in a very long time and highly recommend it to everyone – it has something that will keep you reading till the end (which I never saw coming). I give The Dalhart Pursuit the highest score - judging on a level from 1 to 10, I would say about 100 is about right. Do not miss this one.
