Critical Pursuit is book one in the Critical Pursuit series by Janice Cantore.
Officer Brinna Caruso was abducted as a child and has made it her mission to track down every missing child with the help of her search and rescue dog, Hero. It is now the 20th anniversary of her abduction and her abductor has returned. He is tormenting her by abducting little girls and leaving messages for her. The officer that found her twenty years ago has recently died and her father is fighting for his life as well.
Detective Jack O’Reilly is still mourning the loss of his wife and not ready to return homicide. He has been assigned to be Brinna’s partner for retraining. Jack has turned away from his faith and Brinna has never accepted the Lord as her savior. So they have the lack of faith in common.
I really like this book. I like the fast pace it sets and the action involved. I also appreciate the Christian aspect of it. It is not so overwhelming that it would turn someone off, but it is there.
