I have read a lot of novels by Lisa Harris, but The Chase, in my opinion, is probably her best so far. Now this is the second book in her "U.S. Marshals" series, the first book being The Escape (unfortunately I haven't had a chance to pick up a copy yet). While they can be read as standalones I believe it would be best to read them in order as this is a series that contains a continuation thread.
I love great characters and Ms. Harris did not disappoint me with her two lead characters, U.S. Marshal Madison James and U.S. Marshal Jonas Quinn. Both characters bring the pages of this book to life and pull the reader into their world.
The plot to me was fast paced and kept me guessing and pulling for the success of the characters. The main story concerned a series of bank robberies and Madison and Jonas were given the identity of someone that could have been involved. This took them on a chase from Seattle to the San Juan Islands keeping the reader sitting on the edge of the seat waiting for the climax to the hunt.
The second storyline involves the death of Madison's husband (which occurred in the first book). In this book, it is revealed that Madison has a mental block on who actually killed her husband. There are some hints at the end of this book but unfortunately the reader will not learn the resolve until book three, The Catch. I can hardly wait for this third installment to be released.
If you are a fan of Lisa Harris and like fast paced action suspense novels that are clean and have a faith thread you must pick up a copy of The Chase. I promise you will not be disappointed.
On a 5-star scale = 5 HUGE Stars! I loved this book!
