Publisher's Description

Officer Brinna Caruso has built a reputation at the precinct as the cop to call when a child goes missing. For Brinna, it’s personal because she was once one of them. Brinna and her K-9 search and rescue dog, Hero, will stop at nothing to find a missing child, no matter the stakes.

Detective Jack O’Reilly isn’t ready to return to his homicide duties, after losing his wife to a drunk driver. He’s on the downside of his career, and bent on revenge, when he’s assigned as Brinna’s partner. While on patrol, Jack struggles between his quest for personal justice and his responsibility to those around him, especially his partner.

Skeptical of Jack’s motives, Brinna isn’t sure she can rely on her new partner, whose reckless abandon endangers the safety of those around him. But when a man surfaces with an MO similar to the criminal who abducted Brinna twenty years earlier, Brinna and Jack must cast aside previous judgments and combine efforts to catch the kidnapper, and finally allow Brinna the peace stolen from her as a child.

    Suspenseful and unique

    I really enjoyed this book. It is about a woman, Brinna who is a police officer working with a police dog to find missing children. She herself had been abducted and then found when she was a child. While her mother and brother have strong faith, Brinna is a non-believer. Due to a shooting, she is paired with Jack, a former homicide detective that has been struggling after the loss of his wife and although he had been strong in his faith, he has turned away from God and does not believe anymore. It was a novel approach to see both main characters as non-believers and to have the secondary characters be the believers in the story. Many times, a story has one strong believer and one non-believer. There are definite issues of faith and belief in God without being preachy with Bible verses quoted constantly.There was tension between Brinna and Jack initially, suspense with the child abductions, and past and present storylines weaving together. While this book does bring closure to it's main story line. There is enough left unresolved with the main character and her faith issue that I look forward to reading the second of the series.

    Critical Pursuit starts off on page one with action and continued on to the last page. This book is the reason I am a fan of Janice Cantore's work. I loved the action, characters, mystery and suspense.

    I think the story line is really good. I love how the author incorporates the lesson of learning the power of forgiveness. Great book!

    I look forward to reading more by this author and will adding her books to my wish list.

    5 stars.

    As a child Officer Brianna Caruso was abducted and miraculously rescued but now does all she can to protect the children around her.

Following a shooting Brianna is paired with Detective Jack OReilly on patrol duty and they must learn to work together and trust each other even though that is the last thing that Brianna wants.

    Critical Pursuit was the first book of Janice Cantore's that I have read, and I loved it. The story line was well written, with a clear path to the end of the book. I will definitely be looking up more of her books to read.

    Brinna Caruso is a cop with a mission. Twenty years earlier, she was a victim of an abduction. Fortunately, hours later a police officer with a search and rescue dog found her and returned her home. That experience influenced her decision to become involved in search and rescue for abducted and missing children herself. When she joined the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD), she eventually acquired a scent-trained search dog through a federal grant. Hero became her partner. Milo, the policeman who rescued her, kept in touch and mentored her, helping her become the successful cop she is now.

    What Brinna doesn't know is that her abductor is not only alive but in the area. He saw a newspaper article about Brinna in which the journalist made an issue of her 20 year's anniversary since her abduction and rescue. She also made an issue of Brinna's mission as K-9 officer to participate in as many searches and track down as many abductors as possible. He decided to do some celebrating himself, by taunting her--new little girls to snatch before he disappeared again.

    Jack O'Reilly has been on the force for fifteen years. He was a homicide detective, one of the best at LBPD. But a year before, a drunk driver crushed Jack's spirit with a head on crash that killed his wife and unborn daughter. Since then, he has only lived to see the man pay for his crime. Nothing else gave him any purpose.

    When one night on patrol with Hero, Brinna defensively shot a young perp after a high speed car chase, the press turned on her, vilifying her actions. She was temporarily re-assigned to patrol status with Jack O'Reilly. She didn't want to be there with him, and he didn't want to be there with her. But as Jack got to know Caruso he became impressed with her drive to be every missing child's savior. Apparently, he'd been growing cynical. Could he ever be the same cop he'd been six years ago?

    Janice Cantore writes an action-packed adventure/mystery based on her own 22 years of service as a police officer in Long Beach, CA. The action is tight and feels authentic. The bad guy in the story is truly creepy but smart enough to keep the FBI and the local law enforcement hopping to keep up with him and protect the little girls he harms. The author's talent brings to her readers thrilling action and suspense as well as relevant faith-oriented character development.

    I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading the next book, Visible Threat, as well as other books written by this author.
