to Varney had unleashed the equally cunning and cold Prescott onto his tail Filled with unique characters, Persuit , was a bit of a slow read However I was in no hurry to breeze through this one It was one of those books to take time reading and savoring a really good story At times it seemed bodies were dropping on every page The cat and mouse game between Varney and Prescott was intense and riveting At just over 350 pages this gets four stars out of a possible five stars I was somewhat surprised at the shocking conclusion Does Thomas Perry write nothing but top notch thrillers I ve read close to twenty Perry thrillers and they are all must reads This one is a do not miss for any reason Prescott vs Varney a heavyweight match to be sure Overal I found this book to read like a roller coaster There were some excellent high points But, the low points dragged on and on and on At the highs, the author had you captivated about the plot the characters But, then he d take off into endless chapters and chapters of background information It did nothing to enhance the plot and or characters All it did for me was slow down the storyline and force me to put the book down because I was losing interest. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel by Thomas Perry whom I have recently rediscovered after a long hiatus It pits killer John Varney against pursuer Roy Prescott Exceptionally well written We kind of know how it will end but Varney haslives than a cat and many tricks up his sleeve Varney and Prescott are both guns for hire but Prescott is on the side of good in tracking down a murderer even if he too leaves a few bodies in his wake Recommended but not for goody two shoes types. This is one of the best chase stories I ve had the pleasure to come across Well worth the read or cd 10 of 10 stars for this thriller Very good Would recommend. This is a page turning thriller, especially if you love reading about a battle of strategies and wits of the good guy versus the bad guyespecially when both of them are street smart and cunning.Our bad guy here is Varney, and he s a doozy He s completely without emotion he talks often about mimicking other people s expressions to blend in He also considers himself a killer at the top of his game he can plot and carry out any murder, or series of murders, without leaving evidence, and This is a page turning thriller, especially if you love reading about a battle of strategies and wits of the good guy versus the bad guyespecially when both of them are street smart and cunning.Our bad guy here is Varney, and he s a doozy He s completely without emotion he talks often about mimicking other people s expressions to blend in He also considers himself a killer at the top of his game he can plot and carry out any murder, or series of murders, without leaving evidence, and, of course, without getting caught by any idiotic detective He s enjoyed many years of being a well paid, successful hitman.Our good guy is Prescott, a crafty specialist who has made a career out of studying criminals and their patterns, and finding them especially when they are working extremely hard at being unfindable He works alone, and has some unorthodox ways of tracking people by taking the smallest clues and figuring out the next step.Both main characters are very well written, and the details of their plotting and planning are pretty incredible Once I started this book I found it extremely hard to put down The author shares much of each person s thoughts and motivations, so you really feel like you re the proverbial fly on the wallbut better It s also interesting that we see how long tracking a killer can take in this book, it s literally months of Prescott patiently plotting and stalking Varney More realistic when we ve all gotten used to a crime being solved in just a few days, or maybe a couple of weeks, as in most plots.The only thing that kept this from being a 5 star review is that, since it does take months for Prescott to find Varney, he initially uses a stripper for his cover story and information, and eventually he forms an attachment to her.not quite love, butthan a friendly acquaintance While it was a nice touch to showof Prescott s humanity, it took away some of the thrill of the cat and mouse chasing Varney also finds a female interest, but, in keeping with his personality, it s a much less complex relationship.My favorite part of the book was the locked in the office trap.I won t spoil it Detail oriented suspense Seems like an oxymoron, but Perry rocks it Here, he pits two devilishly clever men who are in a battle to the death of wits One is a killer for hire, the other is a man who pursues killers who might not be able to be brought to justice in conventional ways For those who love forensics, quick thinking, and McGyver situations, this book hits all the right buttons.
