The Chase by Lisa Harris is the second book in the US Marshals series. Madison is back on the job after being shot three months earlier. Her first day back on the job she and her partner, Jonas, are assigned a case of a series of bank robberies.
This is a great story takes off three months after the first ends with the same characters so it is best to read this series in order. The author does a great job of filling in the background so this does make a good stand alone story as well. This is a well written story with wonderful characters. It is filled with lots of action and suspense. I enjoyed the friendship and loyality Madison and Jonas have and the dedication Madison has towards her family.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley, this is my honest review.
About the Book
US Marshal Madison James may not be sure who shot her three months ago, but she does know one thing–it’s time to get back out into the field. When her partner, Jonas Quinn, receives a message that a federal warrant just came in on a man connected to a string of bank robberies, Madison jumps at the chance to get back to work. What she and Jonas find is a bank robbery in progress that’s gone wrong–and things are about to get worse.
For these bank robbers, it’s never been just about the money. It’s about taking risks and adrenaline rushes, and getting caught is not part of the game. When the suspects escape, Madison and Jonas must hunt them down and bring them to justice before someone else–someone close to them–gets hurt . . . or worse.
From Seattle to the San Juan Islands, bestselling author Lisa Harris takes you on a nonstop chase where feelings are complicated and failure isn’t an option.
