Critical Pursuit

Janice Cantore is a retired Long Beach police officer of 22 years.  During the course of her career, Cantore found that her faith was indispensable to every aspect of the job and published articles on faith at work.  She enjoys writing suspense novels that keep readers engrossed and leave them inspired.
Janice is excited and honored to be a part of the Tyndale Publishing House family.  Tyndale sent me a complimentary copy of Cantore's Critical Pursuit (Book One in Cantore's latest series and previously published as The Kevlar Heart).
You can connect with Cantore through her website found at, and on Facebook HERE.

Officer Brinna Caruso has built a reputation at the precinct as the cop to call when a child goes missing.  For Brinna, it's personal because she was once one of them.  Brinna and her K-9 search and rescue doe, Hero, will stop at nothing to find a missing child, no matter the stakes.
Detective Jack O'Reilly isn't ready to return to his homicide duties after losing his wife to a drunk driver.  He's on the downside of his career, and bent on revenge, when he's assigned as Brinna's partner.  While on patrol, Jack struggles between his quest for personal justice and his responsibility to those around him, especially his partner.
Skeptical of Jack's motives, Brinna isn't sure she can rely on her new partner, whose reckless abandon endangers those around him.  But when a man surfaces with an MO similar to the criminal who abducted Brinna Twenty years earlier, Brinna and Jack must cast aside previous judgments and combine efforts to catch the kidnapper and finally allow Brinna the peace stolen from her as a child.
My Thoughts:
When you open this book to page one and begin reading, buckle your seat belt for a fast paced police thriller!  Cantore writes with a familiarity of her surroundings and the accuracy only a seasoned police officer can pull off.  While the plot isn't particularly complex, she writes an emotional and intriguing story with characters you can't help but like.  The dialogue is full of struggles with faith and the darkness of a particularly chilling evil...crimes against children.  You won't want to miss this one!  I can't wait to continue Brinna's story when Visible Threat (Book Two in the series) comes out.
Happy Reading,
