To the FBI it's a cold case. To Kariss Walker it's a hot idea that could either reshape or ruin her writing career. And it's a burning mission to revisit an event she can never forget. Five years ago, an unidentified little girl was found starved to death in the woods behind a Houston apartment complex. A TV news anchor at the time, Kariss reported on the terrifying case. Today, as a New York Times bestselling author, Kariss intends to turn the unsolved mystery into a suspense novel. Enlisting the help of FBI Special Agent Tigo Harris, Kariss succeeds in getting the case reopened. But the search for the dead girl's missing mother yields a discovery that plunges the partners into a witch's brew of danger. The old crime lives on in more ways than either of them could ever imagine. Will Kariss's pursuit of her dream as a writer carry a deadly price tag? Drawing from a real-life cold case, bestselling novelist DiAnn Mills presents a taut collage of suspense, faith, and romance in this Zondervan ebook, The Chase.

Good read story rambles a little and the ending is vague.

First, here's one thing I liked: the primary relationship in the book didn't fall into the stereotypical romantic template. Instead, there was a professional relationship with elements of romantic tension and a strong friendship.

The story was disappointing throughout. If someone was trying to kill me, I'd ask, "Who is after me? Why? How did they find me?" Why don't these characters ask that last question? It's obvious that the villain(s) know about Kariss' family, so why would a seasoned reporter and FBI agent not act to protect them?

Some of the story elements had me laughing--at points I'm sure the author didn't intend. There are plenty of distracting misspellings, verb disagreements, and ambiguous pronouns. In a few spots, it's impossible to follow the conversation. The point of view changes frequently--not quite "head hopping," but enough to be annoying. Someone involved with the book's production apparently seems to think that "weapons deal" should have an apostrophe, but they aren't sure where to put it.

The story was resolved more by chance events than by the skill or cleverness of the protagonists.
