Publisher's Summary

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 best-selling 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 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, best-selling novelist DiAnn Mills presents a taut collage of suspense, faith, and romance.

    What did you love best about The Chase?

    Ms. Mills took an overused premise (author/or actor shadowing FBI) and turned it into a fantastic storyline with well developed characters. I enjoyed how she worked the theme of the need for God into the lives of people who felt they could wait until later, without the book becoming "preachy".

    Wonderful story line and great characters. Narrator was great. I like it when the narrator is able to change their voice for each character.

    "The Chase"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. The story was easy to follow and the characters were believable with a believable dilemma.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I wasn't surprised.


    What about Laurel Merlington’s performance did you like?

    Nice choice as the reader.


    Could you see The Chase being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.

    Story
    "Not as good as I hoped"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There is some character dialogue that is unbelievable. FBI agents who say things too basic for FBI discussion. Sounded naive.


    What could DiAnn Mills have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The book ends heavily steeped in


    What does Laurel Merlington bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    She did a really good job with multiple voices and english and hispanic voicing. There was a character who was supposed to have a lisp that didn't sound like he had one, and its possible that Houston residents would have more drawl than she put in the characters, but that wasn't a problem. I had more issue with what was written than how it was delivered.


    Did The Chase inspire you to do anything?

    I won't be purchasing another of this author's books if they are all going to be tied to solutions from Jesus and return to faith for the faithless.

    Story
    "Story about an author"

    I don't like to read a book that is about an author. Most of us are not and it is conjured. It seems like it's getting popular to write about an author since that is the life of the one writing. As soon as I hear that the person is a journalist or author I am immediately turned off. It's so fake!
