Her history beginning with the murder of her parents is fascinating. Being as this is 5th in the series, it read more as the first book. This is a great stand alone. The killer is cold-blooded, but extremely smart. He's still listening to his mother, although she's been gone many years.

Her partner is a step below, always protecting Emily's back, but still strong and looking to serve justice.Many thanks to the author / JEC Press / Netgalley for the digital copy.

  27. I m not usually a fan of female leads but Dark Pursuit has had some great reviews and I was open to persuasion In hindsight I needn t have worried as Emily Stone turned out to be excellent In fact one the most believable main characters I have come across in recent books The storyline was excellent but I think there were some connection which would have been stronger for me if I had read the other books in the series176
