When one night on patrol with Hero, Brinna defensively shot a young perp after a high speed car chase, the press turned on her, vilifying her actions.

She was temporarily re-assigned to patrol status with Jack O'Reilly. She didn't want to be there with him, and he didn't want to be there with her. But as Jack got to know Caruso he became impressed with her drive to be every missing child's savior. Apparently, he'd been growing cynical. Could he ever be the same cop he'd been six years ago? The action is tight and feels authentic. The bad guy in the story is truly creepy but smart enough to keep the FBI and the local law enforcement hopping to keep up with him and protect the little girls he harms. The author's talent brings to her readers thrilling action and suspense as well as relevant faith-oriented character development.
I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading the next book, Visible Threat, as well as other books written by this author. I am reading and reviewing this book for the Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. Critical Pursuit by Janice Cantore is a great book with a lot of suspense woven into the story. The main character is Brinna Caruso, the one person in the police department to call when a child is kidnapped.
When Brinna was six she was kidnapped but fortunately she was found and now that she is a police officer, she and her K-9 search dog will let nothing stop them from searching for missing children no matter what the cost. Jack O'Reilly lost his wife a year ago when her car was hit by a drunk driver. Jack worked in homicide but he is no longer in the department due to his state of mind and his overwhelming desire for revenge against the drunk driver. Jack is assigned to be Brinna's partner on patrol duty and this causes some tense moments between the two.
Brinna is not sure that she can depend on Jack if trouble arises and he is not sure that he can hold up his end of the partnership. A man who fits the description of the man who kidnapped Brinna surfaces and this greatly adds to her problems for she is determined to capture the man and see that he receives the justice he deserves.

Janice Cantore is a retired Long Beach, California, police officer and is well qualified to write a great story that keeps one sitting on the edge of their chair or chewing on their fingernails. I really like the way that the author developed the characters to let the reader know exactly what they were thinking and feeling.
Each character was so well developed that they became real people. Due to her career in police work, the dialogue rings true and is interesting to read.

Her description of the action scenes was so real that I was right there in the middle of what was happening. The story is filled with lots of suspense that kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next. At the beginning of the book, Brinna and Jack are both fighting against God and His love and are unwilling to forgive others, but as the story develops, their hearts start to soften.
I especially like that the author wrote a true to life police novel and did so without using profanity or vulgarity. In spite of all the terrible things that happen in the story, it does have a happy ending. The following links are provided for readers interested in more information about this book and the author.

Tyndale House Publishers provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Great story. Critical Pursuit is a fast-paced story about the abduction of children. Officer Caruso, herself a survivor of a child abduction, stops at nothing to find the abductor. With her new partner, Caruso hunts down the man while at the same time overcoming her own demons Critical Pursuit shows the underbelly of abduction and how the child isn't the only one traumatized by the event.
Fast-paced and very readable. Suspense is one of my favorite genres and by far the one I prefer to review. I like the twists and turns, the emotional responses by the characters and that feeling of tension that permeates a good suspense novel. Brinna normally loved the park, the smell of pine trees and nature, the illusion of pristine innocence and safety.
Today all she could think about was how quickly innocence could be lost or, worse, stolen. Hero trotted ahead on a well-beaten path, panting in the summer heat.
Brinna and Officer Maggie Sloan followed a few feet behind. Maggie had left her partner back at the picnic site with the boy's family. She wasn't just another officer; she was Brinna's confidante and best friend on the force. The best guess is he got lost playing hide-and-seek. El Dorado is to parks what Disneyland is to carnivals. He could be anywhere.
You always imagine the worst where kids are concerned. Brinna gritted her teeth. Jaw set, Brinna returned her full attention to the dog. She'd had this conversation before, with Maggie and others, almost every time a child went missing.

The guys on her team liked to say that since Brinna didn't believe there was a God watching out for kids, she'd given herself the job. You're such a glass-is-half-empty person. Maggie snorted in exasperation.
Brinna said nothing, hating that truth. Hero came to a stop, and like dominoes, so did Brinna and then Maggie. Maggie followed Brinna's gaze to Hero, then turned back to her friend and smiled. Brinna watched the dog. His nose up, testing the air, Hero trotted off in a more determined fashion than before. When he caught a scent, the hackles on the back of his neck rose ever so slightly. Brinna felt her own neck tingle as if there were a sympathetic connection between her and the dog.
