Hot Pursuit | [Suzanne Brockmann]

Hot Pursuit

Alyssa takes on the extremely public assignment of providing personal protection for Savannah von Hopf, an old friend who is running for office. While high-profile, the bodyguard job seems simple and easy enough - except Alyssa is juggling her stressful leadership position with a new baby and a husband who is her subordinate.

When Alyssa receives several disturbing messages from "the Dentist," a serial killer she has relentlessly pursued for years, Alyssa must take action to protect those closest to her.

Audible Editor Reviews

if you're not already a fan, listening to Suzanne Brockmann's Hot Pursuit, her 15th book in the wildly successful Troubleshooters series, is one of those forehead-slapping moments when you discover a great new author. it makes you wonder how you missed something so great for so long even as you blissfully contemplate the other 14 smart, sexy stories to catch up on down the road.

Brockmann's terrific romantic suspense story is built on several storylines and multiple narratives. Narrators Renee Raudman and Patrick G. Lawlor capture each character's idiosyncratic voice, weaving their various perspectives together expertly and giving Hot Pursuit a very satisfying richness and texture. Their performances have a perfectly in-tune quality that make the his-and-hers perspectives of the romances work beautifully, and build the overarching suspense plot to an edge-of-your-seat ending.

Brockmann also earns big points for focusing two of the romantic storylines around married couples. Alyssa & Sam and Jules & Patrick put deliciously modern spins on the sassy, sexy Nick & Nora Charles marriage-just-makes-it-all-better attitude (minus the 1940s Hollywood censor's absurdly incongruous twin beds).

But it's the sizzling hot tension of the developing relationship between drop-dead gorgeous Navy Seal Dan Gillman and self-described Plain Jane Jennilyn LeMay, that drives the last two thirds of this story. Lawlor's terrific portrayal of Dan's in-spite-of-himself transition from world-class player to vulnerable man falling in love is wonderfully satisfying. And Raudman builds a breathtaking sexiness into Jennilyn's slow letting go of caution as she gives in to her reckless attraction to Dan.

Both Raudman and Lawlor tackle the challenges of the multiple voices with confidence, skill, and energy. Brockmann has filled her story with diverse, well-developed characters, and the narrator's voices bring their individuality and passion to life. Not surprising that this series has attracted a devoted following, a slew of awards and a seemingly permanent place on the New York Times best seller list. —Nancy Carter

Publisher's Summary

Troubleshooter Alyssa Locke and her husband, former Navy SEAL Sam Starrett, were brought to the center stage in Gone Too Far, the sixth book in Suzanne Brockmann's sexy, suspenseful New York Times best-selling series. Now these fan favorites are back to continue their story!

Alyssa takes on the extremely public assignment of providing personal protection for Savannah von Hopf, an old friend who is running for office. While high-profile, the bodyguard job seems simple and easy enough - except Alyssa is juggling her stressful leadership position with a new baby and a husband who is her subordinate.

When Alyssa receives several disturbing messages from "the Dentist," a serial killer she has relentlessly pursued for years, Alyssa must take action to protect those closest to her. No one is safe, even after the FBI - including Sam and Alyssa's good friend Jules Cassidy - gets involved. But Alyssa knows that as the Dentist's true target she must use herself as bait to catch the devious killer - before he strikes again.

    "A thriller within Suz's line"

    First of all, if you are new to the Troubleshooters series, I recommend starting from the begining. The stories are linked, and sometimes there is something slight in a previous book that makes things in a later book better. I started by book 13 (Into the fire) and then went all the way back to number 1 (The unsung hero) and went through the whole series...in 1 month!

    This book is one of the best so far. It has more thriller into it than others and it keeps you guessing until the end. Also having Sam and Alyssa back and hear about their relationship evolving into something so solid is really heartwarming.

    The series is amazing. Some people don't like the multiple stories, it may take a bit to get used to it, but I have come to love it. The action is amazing in most of the books (I have to agree with others on the lack of action plot in #12 - All through the night), but having followed Jules' story throughout all the other books, it was OK. I liked #11 (Force of Nature) better since it actually developed Jules' and Robin's story.

    These are romance books with explicit scenes mingled with combat action. If you don't like either, this is not your kind of book. If you like both, you are in luck! Best books I have ever read, I can't enough. And I can't wait to hear more about Izzy and Eden, which Suz has promised for next book!

    "Love the series, the narration is unbeatable"

    Great mix of characters; it's always fun to hear from Sam and Alyssa, Jules and Robin, and maybe my favorite Izzy. All the books are a wonderful mix of suspense, action and romance. Hope she's busy working on the next one.

    "Very pleased she is writing more"

    I am very pleased that she is writing more books. I hope she releases the rest of the series real soon. It is hard to follow the story with holes missing. I love her Trouble shooters books.

    "Hot Pursuit"

    I love the way the author brings back people to play major roles in new stories. Jules/Robin and Alyssa/Sam have strong personalities and I understand why the author can't leave them out of the action. This has great plot, high action and lots of twists. I enjoyed this one alot!

    "Great x5 & Perfect Lead Into My Fav Book of Series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, yes, yes!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It sure did. It kept me guessing to the very end-I was able to narrow down 'The Dentist' to one of 3 suspects, but that was as close as I could get til he was revealed.

    My favorite book of the series (and the 1st I purchased) was Breaking the Rules: Book 16 and this book-Hot Pursuit- leads perfectly into the next with Eden/Izzy and Jenny Lynn/Gilman.


    What does Renee Raudman and Patrick G. Lawlor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They are fantastic-both do a great job with female and male characters-they are brilliant!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The author redeemed herself (my one major complaints) by leaving out the incessant whining & insecurity of Jules and Robin! Hooray!

    I probably will not purchase any future Troubleshooters as I find the author's political agenda (jabs at 'torture' of soldiers and enemy combatants, don't ask don't tell, etc.) -she can leave this out & keep more of her audience without taking away from the story at all.


    Any additional comments?

    NOTE: Extremely STRONG Language (continual F-bombs) and sexual scenes

    As with all the books in this series while they may look like an Action/Suspense (Navy SEAL) they are mostly romance with a bit of action thrown in. This book was very gory as the actions of The Dentist are described.

    "Confusing"

    I have been listening to this for 3 hours and have no idea what the point even is. Male narrator just yells his way through his parts. I don't like listening to him. Too many side steps in story making it very difficult to follow.

    "Loved it!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hot Pursuit to be better than the print version?

    I like them both the audio just give me the option to listen to it while I work.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, I can't wait for the next book.


    Have you listened to any of Renee Raudman and Patrick G. Lawlor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to all the books they have done together for Suzanne Brockman.


    Any additional comments?

    I have really enjoyed reading/listening to this whole series.

    Story
    "Gay men being married"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I would have enjoyed the book more without the gay couples and marriage.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Suzanne Brockmann again?

    Probably not


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    No, they brought the characters to life

    Story
    "Scoopy-Doo like murder mystery"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I bought the book on the $4.95 sale so I cannot complain, it is mildly entertaining and softens my commute to work, I am about 80% thru the audiobook. The murder investigation does not seem realistically told, I do not think this is an area of expertise of the author, many of the characters are Navy Seals but here again the author does not have much inner knowledge of the seals either. The book is filled with child care and romance scenarios which seem to be the authors knowledge base, I have not learned anything from this book but it is worth the money I paid for it, as I am waiting for my next credits to come.


    What didn’t you like about Renee Raudman and Patrick G. Lawlor’s performance?

    The narration was good.
