Critical Pursuit by Janice Cantore

Critical Pursuit



Officer Brinna Caruso has built a reputation at the precinct as the cop to call when a child goes missing. For Brinna, it’s personal because she was once one of them. Brinna and her K-9 search and rescue dog, Hero, will stop at nothing to find a missing child, no matter the stakes.

Detective Jack O’Reilly isn’t ready to return to his homicide duties, after losing his wife to a drunk driver. He’s on the downside of his career, and bent on revenge, when he’s assigned as Brinna’s partner. While on patrol, Jack struggles between his quest for personal justice and his responsibility to those around him, especially his partner.

Skeptical of Jack’s motives, Brinna isn’t sure she can rely on her new partner, whose reckless abandon endangers the safety of those around him. But when a man surfaces with an MO similar to the criminal who abducted Brinna twenty years earlier, Brinna and Jack must cast aside previous judgments and combine efforts to catch the kidnapper, and finally allow Brinna the peace stolen from her as a child.

I love this book, it is a really, really great read! Brinna has a love for her work and her K9 search dog, and she is driven to find any missing child, no matter what. When Jack O’Reilly is assigned as her partner, she’s just not sure how things will be because of the struggles he’s had in his personal life.
Janice Cantore takes readers on a journey with two different people who are struggling with their past. Jack lost his wife to a drunk driver and can’t seem to go on with his life, or his relationship with God. Brinna’s job is her entire life because she was once one of the missing children she is now searching for, and she can think of nothing else but what she can do to find them. Despite what Jack and Brinna think, working together might be just what they need to open their eyes to the rest of the world. Ms. Cantore does a great job of creating characters and developing them throughout the story, causing them to steal their way into the hearts of readers! I really like Brinna and Jack and I read this book in one day, because I had to find out what would happen with them! This is a must read for those who enjoy suspense and cop stories. You will not be disappointed!
