Vigilante detective Emily Stone has covertly hunted down killers and closed more serial cases than most seasoned homicide cops combined. Her exceptional profiling skills and forensic techniques, along with deductive crime scene investigations, have made her a compelling force that cannot be beat.

With preciseness, the Tick-Tock Killer has taken his next child victim and promised to dump the body precisely four days later, mocking police and the community. Stone struggles to balance her inner demons and ghosts from the past, against the wits of a brutal and cunning serial killer in an all-out battle of psychological warfare.
Can Stone save the next child in time? Dark Pursuit is an action-packed cat and mouse game that will take you to dark places rarely explored.

Five Star Review on Amazon By Anna
This is the 1st book I have read by this author and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. What a well-written crime drama and mind-blowing thriller that really had my imagination racing from the very first page. It will definitely take your imagination on quite a wild ride as the author has masterfully engineered so many twists & turns and cliff hanger moments that you simply canâ€™t put the book down. Jennifer Chase obviously has very colorful and creative imagination to be able to write such a story. She is a master at using colorful & descriptive dialogue that really brings the imagery of the scenes to life in your imagination. I am a huge fan of crime fiction and this story is as good, or better than anything else I have read in a very long time. I donâ€™t like to give away story lines as I would hate to ruin a good story for another reader, but trust me, you will absolutely love this story and the writing style of the author. You truly will be completely captivated and fully immersed in this story from page one until its climactic ending! If you like crime thrillers then this one is a must for you to put on your spring reading list! 5 Big stars!
About the Author
The love that author Jennifer Chase has for books and writing began with the weekly trips that her mom would take with her to the local library. Jennifer would load up her arms with books and spend the week pouring over them until the next visit brought the opportunity to discover even more authors and stories. Before long, she was taking pen to paper and a lifelong connection with creating characters and plotlines was made.
Jennifer has found her niche in the writing world by integrating another passion, criminology, into her work. She holds a bachelors degree in police forensics and a masters in criminology, academic pursuits that developed out of her curiosity about the criminal mind as well as from her own experience with a violent sociopath, providing Jennifer with deep personal investment in every story she tells. She also holds certifications in serial crime and criminal profiling and is a proud member of the International Association of Forensic Criminologists.
This research background has assisted Jennifer in writing multiple crime thrillers, including Compulsion, Dead Game, Silent Partner, Dark Mind and Dead Burn, earning multiple readers’ choice awards and other accolades along the way, including a recent gold medal awarded for Dead Burn by a panel of professionals in the publishing industry as part of the International Book Awards. She also has published a non-fiction book, How to Write a Screenplay, which offers a step-by-step guide to this special craft. In addition to her own writing work, Jennifer assists other authors with their own publishing efforts and does some consulting work in the criminology field.
Jennifer Chase was born and raised in California and still lives there with her husband, dogs and cats. In addition to writing and studying, Jennifer enjoys spending time outdoors, both at the beach and hiking, and engaging in some amateur photography.
