Review of a Fantastic Suspense Novel - Guardians of Justice Series

"Deadly Pursuit"
By Irene Hannon
Irene has continued the Guardians of Justice series , with her second being no disappointment.-  
Her ability to keep you in suspense throughout the book is outstanding. I was constantly intrigued by the twists and turns in her plot- I never could guess what would happen next.  Just when you think you have all the answers, she throws in another  idea or mystery. This book is definitely a page turner. It captures your attention on the first page and continues to do so until you are finished. Irene uses a style of fast paced drama and a true mind boggling mystery.
The story builds to such a climax that you are on the edge of your seat - I just could NOT put this book down until I had the answers- and even when I finished, I was left with more questions that I wanted answered.
  The characters appear very real and are described in great detail. You feel the fear and confusion of the main character . Alison is a  social worker who has a wonderful passion for protecting children- those in danger and those mistreated.  But now, she finds herself in the position of the little ones- she is the one who requires protection. Alison has a tormentor who is giving her a great deal of attention-  very violent  ones!! She is forced , through her fear , to call in  her police-detective brother, who then involves his new partner, an ex-Navy SEAL, Mitch.  As the story progresses, the stalker's threats become more violent and frightening. You can feel  the danger, my heart beat faster at each action of this mystery person.  If you are a nail biter, this book will leave you with no nails at all!!  Mitch begins to take a very personal interest in this case and protecting Alison becomes more important than his job.  His whole future depends on keeping this woman safe.

Irene is certainly a talented author, with her outstanding ability of writing a combination of suspense and romance, combining the two , with her storytelling ability. What a book!! I absolutely loved it!! Can hardly wait for Book Three in this series!! Write quickly , Irene!!
