The Chase by Diann Mills

Book Description:  To the FBI it's a cold case. To Kariss Walker it's a hot idea that could either reshape or ruin her writing career. And it's a burning mission to revisit an event she can never forget. Five years ago, an unidentified little girl was found starved to death in the woods behind a Houston apartment complex. A TV news anchor at the time, Kariss reported on the terrifying case. Today, as a New York Times bestselling author, Kariss intends to turn the unsolved mystery into a suspense novel. Enlisting the help of FBI Special Agent Tigo Harris, Kariss succeeds in getting the case reopened. But the search for the dead girl's missing mother yields a discovery that plunges the partners into a witch's brew of danger. The old crime lives on in more ways than either of them could ever imagine. Will Kariss's pursuit of her dream as a writer carry a deadly price tag? Drawing from a real-life cold case, bestselling novelist DiAnn Mills presents a taut collage of suspense, faith, and romance in The Chase.
My Review:  Diann Mills believes that "her readers should expect adventure."  So, quite frankly, if you don't love action and adventure DON'T read this book!  I adore action, adventure and suspense in a christian read!  So, you guessed it!  Diann Mills has become one of my "most favortist" authors.
Now in, The Chase, the action begins on page one!  As the reader opens the book and begins reading...two things are immediately established...there will be sadness and there will be triumphant.  
Kariss is one of those characters who is so believable that the reader wonders, "Have I met her in real life?"  And Agent Tigo?  He's the kind.of.guy we all would like to have watching our back!
This adventure takes quite a toll on the reader!  I experienced so many emotions while reading The Chase...fear {um, quite real!}, sadness {can people really live this way} and triumphant {God allows the good guys to always overcome!}.
Such a fantastic read!  I was truly wishing for book 2 when I finished this book!
