A Deadly Game of Cat and Mouse: Read our Review of The Chase by Candice Fox

When more than 600 of the world’s most violent human beings pour out from Pronghorn Correctional Facility into the Nevada Desert, the biggest manhunt in US history begins.

But for John Kradle, this is his one chance to prove his innocence, five years after the murder of his wife and child.

He just needs to stay one step ahead of the teams of law enforcement officers he knows will be chasing the escapees down.

Death Row Supervisor turned fugitive-hunter Celine Osbourne is single-minded in her mission to catch Kradle. She has very personal reasons for hating him – and she knows exactly where he’s heading.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Candice Fox is often seen collaborating with crime megastar James Patterson to produce blockbuster novels such as Never, Never and Fifty, Fifty. But Fox’s solo work is nothing to sneeze at, and with a slew of critically acclaimed bestsellers under her belt, including Hades, Eden and Crimson Lake, she is one of Australia’s best crime authors. Now, Fox returns with her latest solo novel, The Chase, and readers, you’re in for a treat.

The Chase opens with an explosive series of events that leads to one of the biggest manhunts in history. Such a premise would be difficult for any author to pull off, but Fox manages it with confidence and style, producing one of the best crime novels this year.

Fox always delivers explosive plots and intriguing characters, and The Chase is no different. She keeps the story moving at a fast pace while giving each character their own spotlight; whether it be Celine and her chance at revenge, or the convicted John Kradle and his fight for the truth, everyone gets a chance to shine. I’ve come to expect great stories and characters from Fox so it’s always a pleasure to be surprised time and time again.

The back and forth between Celine and Kradle is electric and makes for some very tense scenes. The action never stops as Fox masterfully weaves both characters’ storylines together for a fiery ending. And while the main story is unforgettable, it’s the many side plots that tie it all together. Who caused the jailbreak? Is John Kradle really innocent? You’ll be on the edge of your seat as you try to piece this together.

The Chase is a perfect blend of a cat-and-mouse thriller and a gripping revenge story. Bursting with refreshing characters and a non-stop, action-packed plot, this is Candice Fox at her very best. I couldn’t put this down even if I’d wanted to.
