Irene Hannon came on the scene shortly after Dee Henderson took a sabbatical (although she has a new coming out this year!). She’s a good author who knows her way around detectives, forensics, ballistics, etc. Deadly Pursuit is the second book in the Guardians of Justice series. In this novel, Allison, a social worker and sister of a detective and U.S. Marshal starts receiving creepy gifts and heavy-breathing phone calls. That can only spell trouble. Toss in her brother’s new ex-Navy Seal partner and you’ve got a fun book. This isn’t a book that revolves around who the bad guy is. You’re told in the beginning, but now you have to watch everyone else figure it out. I’ve read a review or two that said this book was more romance than mystery. I’m the kind of person who says want some more mystery to go with that romance? Thus, I liked it. It was probably more romance focused than any of her others (of course book 3 is coming out soon).
Spiritually, the ex-Navy Seal has to learn to reconcile God with his current circumstances and Allison has to learn to trust God as things go from bad to worst. It’s a great book and a good mystery.
