Killer Pursuit draws readers in with a call girl’s death in Georgetown. The call girl is Catherine Few, a woman who had collateral over all of her high profile clients. Catherine had video recordings of all her clients and in the wrong hands, the videos will destroy many lives. She was smart to encrypt the information sending it to the dark web. However, several individuals are out to get these videos by any means necessary.
Allison McNeil is a special agent hired by the FBI Director to investigate the murder of Catherine Few and retrieve the missing videos. She takes on this task off the record, which confirms something additional is going on. As she delves into the investigation, she happens to acquire a partner, Mike Carrel, a journalist covering the case. Allison starts realizing she is not the only one on this case and after those videos. Both are met with some twists and turns, Allison does not know whom she can trust and when it is all said and done she will have to make a decision.
This book had suspense, a hint of drama and secrets coming from high places. It had unexpected suspects and the twists will keep readers turning the pages. The author does a wonderful job weaving Allison’s personal life in with her professional life, which made me relate to her more. I was truly invested in her solving this case all the way to the end. Once everything was revealed, I was shocked because I was hoping it was someone else. I definitely recommend Killer Pursuit to others and cannot wait to read the next book in this series.
