Working outside the law and willing to do what the police can't, Prescott hunts the killer, an elusive adversary who is as smart, as methodical, as deadly as he is. The only way to conduct this pursuit is to goad the killer into believing that he must kill�Roy Prescott. It's a contest fought from one end of the country to the other, and both men understand that, when it's over, only one of them will be left alive.

"Once Prescott takes the job, the novel shifts into a gear so high that putting the book aside is no longer an option....A bravura performance from one of the few crime writers who never lets you down." (Los Angeles Times)
"Brilliant....A bona fide nail-biter....Thomas Perry's cerebral thrillers unfold methodically, in extremely sharp focus. His attention to detail is so intense that it generates its own brand of quiet suspense." (The New York Times)
"Perry is the best suspense writer in the business....Pursuit is relentless, filled with twists and turns, that rare page-turner that keeps one reading late into the night to finish." (Boston Globe)
I love audio and ebooks but only give them a 5 if they hold my attention. An avereage story gets a 3 . Thrillers & Crime are my favorites.
I found the basic plot of this book to be good but it was so slow moving I almost gave up on finishing it.
This will be a short review but I like all of Perry's books and thought I should say so. He has a way of telling a story and making it interesting. I like first person narratives ie; I felt this, not he felt this. Perry has a lot of this in his books. This is a good murder mystery without much mystery, but a lot of suspense. I got a bit angry that the murderer got away so many times to commit more murders when he was cornered and given too many chances. It did hold my attention though and I give it four stars.
I tried, I tried, but this book was really boring. It was so dull. The narrator droned on and I often wondered if there had been something wrong with the download. I am so impressed by anyone who is capable of writing a book; the time and energy that goes into that kind of creation. But I am sorry to say this was a real dud.
I was very dissapointed by this book. The main character was completly unlikeable and unbelievable. The methods by which the hero pursues the villain are so stupid it is laughable. There is also no sort of character development throughout the entire book. Skip this one and go out in pursuit of a real book!
