Dark Pursuit, by Brandilyn Collins

The Back Cover:

Novelist Darell Brooke lived for his title as King of
Suspense—until an auto accident left him unable to
concentrate. Two years later, recluse and bitter, he
wants one thing: to plot a new novel and regain his

Kaitlan Sering, his twenty-two-year-old
granddaughter, once lived for drugs. After she stole
from Darell, he cut her off. Now she’s rebuilding her life.

But in Kaitlan’s town two women have been murdered,
and she’s about to discover a third. She’s even more
shocked to realize the culprit—her boyfriend, Craig,
the police chief’s son.

Desperate, Kaitlan flees to her estranged grandfather.
For over forty years, Darell Brooke has lived suspense.
Surely he’ll devise a plan to trap the cunning Craig.

But can Darell’s muddled mind do it? And—if he
tries—with what motivation? For Kaitlan’s plight may
be the stunning answer to the elusive plot he seeks..


This is the first book I’ve read by Brandilyn Collins. I’ve never been a fan of suspense novels….BUT, opinions can change, right?  And mine is. I’ll be rushing out to get more of her books.  I ate this one up.  I was so enthralled by the crisp writing and the twists and turns in the plot, I couldn’t put it down. Her characters captivated me, especially Kaitlan. Brandilyn Collins brought out little bits of information about Kaitlan’s life throughout the entire book, which kept me interested, craving more.

I see why she’s known for her Seatbelt Suspense
