Book Description: 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 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.
My Thoughts: The first book I read by Janice Cantore was good but this book Critical Pursuit is an excellent read.
Brinna Caruso was kidnapped as a child and left for dead but she was found. And ever since that moment Brinna has made it her life's job to rescue all children that go missing...never giving up!
Now Jack on the other hand is just trying to make it day by day ever since a drunk driver took his beloved wife's life.
But when the "bad guy" is on the move again, making it a point to disrupt Brinna's life, Jack comes on the scene. And when the "bad guy" makes it personal against Brinna, Jack and Brinna join forces to rescue the children.
The suspense of this book is SO nerve racking! The scenes that are described about the children were sad but every time a child is found it was a hurray! moment! And learning about K-9 search and rescue dogs was incredible. Loved Hero! Brinna's dog partner.
There's just enough romance in this read to make it nice and not a gag factor.
This is a fantastic suspense read!
