Blog Tour: Review + #Giveaway: Killer Pursuit by Jeff Gunhus

Killer Pursuit by Jeff Gunhus
(Allison McNeil) 

Publication date: January 10th 2016
Genres: Adult, Thriller
When a high-society call girl is murdered in her Georgetown home, investigators find two cameras hidden in the walls of her bedroom. One has its memory erased, presumably by the murderer. The second is connected to the Internet through an encrypted connection…and no-one knows who’s on the other end.

Special Agent Allison McNeil is asked by beleaguered FBI Director Clarence Mason to run an off-the-record investigation of the murder. The most direct path to apprehending the killer is to find the videos, but with rumors that the victim’s client list may have included Mason’s political enemies, Allison worries about the director’s motives. As she starts her investigation, she quickly discovers that she’s not the only one pursuing the videos. In fact, the most aggressive person racing against her might be the murderer himself.



This was a exhilarating, suspenseful read that kept me on the edge of my seat every step of the way. Well-paced, with a plethora of developed characters, this book was a twisted web of lies, deceit and murder.


Not at all predictable, Gunhus does a fantastic job of keeping the reader entertained, distracted and so in the moment, that when he delivered the final blow, I was shocked, but so delighted by his brilliance.


This is the type of book I love reading because I feel like I'm a part of the action, always looking over my shoulder and just one step away from discovering the truth. It was interesting to see the characters interact with each other, as personalities clashed, and morality was challenged. The multiple POV allowed me a look into the minds of everyone involved so that I was able to better understand them and their motivation for their actions. Of course, some were inexcusable, but it just made this story real in its entirety.


It was a pleasure reading this book and I would most definitely recommend it to readers who love puzzles, because this story was one big jigsaw puzzle and as the pieces slowly fell into place, the more thrilled I was. Superb!


Jeff Gunhus is the author of thriller and horror novels for adults and the middle grade/YA series, The Templar Chronicles. The first book, Jack Templar Monster Hunter, was written in an effort to get his reluctant reader eleven-year old son excited about reading. It worked and a new series was born.

After his experience with his son, he is passionate about helping parents reach young reluctant readers and is active in child literacy issues.

In rare moments of quiet, he can be found in the back of the City Dock Cafe in Annapolis working on his next novel.
