Publisher's Description

“Ever hear the dead knocking?” Novelist Darell Brooke lived for his title as King of Suspense—until an auto accident left him unable to concentrate. Two years later, reclusive and bitter, he wants one thing: to plot a new novel and regain his reputation. Kaitlan Sering, his twenty-two-year-old granddaughter, once lived for drugs. After she stole from Darell, he cut her off. Now she’s rebuilding her life. But in Kaitlan’s town two women have been murdered, and she is about to discover a third. She’s even more shocked to realize the culprit is her boyfriend, Craig, the police chief’s son. Desperate, Kaitlan flees to her estranged grandfather. For over forty years, Darell Brooke has lived suspense. Surely he’ll devise a plan to trap the cunning Craig. But can Darell’s muddled mind do it? And—if he tries—with what motivation? For Kaitlan’s plight may be the stunning answer to the elusive plot he seeks . . .

Killers are suppose to be cold-hearted strangers, people whom you hear about and never meet, but what happens when you suspect someone close to you might be a murderer? In Dark Pursuit by Brandilyn Collins, Kaitlan Serig discovers that her boyfriend, the son of the police chief, might have caused three women to enter an early grave. She can’t call 911, so she has to turn to the only family she has left: her grandfather, whom she once stole money from. Even if he doesn’t turn her away, can Darrel help her? Will they be able to mend their broken relationship while trying to catch a killer?

From the first line, Collins ensnares her readers, compelling them to continue flipping pages. The book is not a typical suspense nor is it a cliché Christian novel. There are no Scripture references, but biblical themes are present throughout the book. One such theme can be reflected in Psalm 46:1, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble”(NKJV). There is one aspect of the book that may be mildly offensive to some Christians. One of the characters claims that God turned her life away from drugs and gave her a fresh start. Yet, during the course of the novel this same unmarried character finds out that she is six weeks pregnant. However, this is somewhat redeemed by the fact that she decides to keep the child and not have an abortion.

Overall, Dark Pursuit is an enthralling story. Because it is not an in-your-face Christian story, it can appeal to both non-Christians as well as Christians. The theme of God always being there to help is a strong message, one that is not overpowered by Scripture. I recommend this book to young adult and adults, especially those who might need a little push toward God. -- Marissa Willems, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    I have just discovered Brandilyn Collins and have ordered all of her books. My husband and I can hardly put her books down. She "grabs" you in the first few pages and the suspense continues through the whole book.

    This book was incredible! WOW! It was everything I've come to expect from Brandilyn since I've begun reading her books. I've read all but two. It kept me on the edge of my seat nearly the entire time and I had a VERY difficult time putting it down! I can't wait for the next one!!
