Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the best books I have ever read. I simply could not put it down and would thoroughly recommend it to anybody who likes to read a book which makes their heart beat faster!
I romped through this book in 2 days and went into mourning when I had finished it.

A disappointing novel from Brenda Joyce 27 July 2002
By Rista - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Even as a diehard fan of Brenda Joyce, one thing has become clear to me. Her forte is clearly historical romance/fiction. Her last few books, The Third Heiress, and House of Dreams have not displayed her talent for writing. Instead, Ms. Joyce's Deadly series offer a much more interesting suspense and character development.
The beginning of the Chase starts out in a promising manner. However, as the reader continues this murder mystery, with Claire as the protagonist and Ian Marshall as a stranger with whom she connects with, one starts to wonder, why would he team up with her in this chase to find her husband's killer? Their chemistry is lacking. Instead, the heartier portion of the book which is devoted to the 1940's storyline (about the connection between Ian Marshall, Claire, and her husband's murder) is much more intriguing and definitely more well written. There is definitely suspense, but The Chase is not a book which you read every page of. Skip the beginning, and you'll have a pretty good book. I would recommend Linda Howard, Shades of Twilight, or After the Night if you're interested in contemporary romantic thrillers.

Good Grief!! 15 Nov. 2004
By djk - Published on
Is Claire supposed to be likeable,clever and witty? I found her to be petulant, manipulative and intrusive. Why would a man who works for the FBI agree to engage her as a 'partner'; one attached with not just white glue, but Krazy Glue!

I especially winced at the part where Ian and Claire were being pursued by a man in a black BMW,when he caught up with them and got out of the car, it turned into a Mercedes! OOPS! Where was the editor on that one?? Or was there a ferry-god-mother on the loose?? o-well, what the heck, they are both German made vehicles.

The story line gains a smidgen of strength when BJ introduces Rachel and tells the story within the story. However; the depiction of 'true love' occuring within the amount of contact that Eddy and Rachel had was less believable than a Hollywood movie romance. I think they had one 'official' date before they married; and that was spent rolling in the hay and Rachel offering up her virginity to a virtual stranger!

The morning after they married and broke into Elgin's slum apartment,Rachel was appalled at a 'look' she had never before seen on Eddy's face. If the marriage had lasted, I am afraid Rachel would have been in for a lot of little surprises. But thank goodness it is all fiction; which leaves me wondering why BJ couldn't have done a more believable job since the only limitation to the story was her imagination.

This was my first Brenda Joyce book and my last....

Okay 5 Oct. 2012
By mommyof3 - Published on
This book could have been great but I could not stand Claire!!! She was so annoying and the dialogue between her and Ian so juvenile. If I were Ian, I would be so turned off by her. I liked her until her husband died and she became this "new", pushy, horny and desperate woman. The reason I am giving the book three stars and not one is because I enjoyed the storyline between Eddy and Rachel - even with flaws. I too believe it was too far fetched for them to fall in love after seeing each other once and marrying after one date. **Spoiler Alert** I did not think the person they believed to be Elgin at the end was believable. An old lady killing a man with a small knife. All in all it was okay and I will definitely try another book by this author.

Great read 5 July 2002
By Susan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I really enjoyed this book! The characters were perfectly matched and the device that BJ uses by taking us back in time is simply wonderful! Though I must say I did get more caught up in the love story that happened between Rachel and Eddy then Claire and Ian! Though Claire and Ian had more potential, but they didnt have enough time to dicover or explore there true depth! The only reason I gave this book 4 stars is because my 5 stars is reserved for the Deadly series!
Thanks Brenda for another Great book!

Crafty Romantic Suspense 24 July 2002
By Sheri Melnick - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Veteran romance author Brenda Joyce once again ventures into the sub genre of romantic suspense with stunning results. Claire Hayden's life seems perfect on the surface-a beautiful home in San Francisco with a ten-year marriage to David, a handsome attorney. But their marriage isn't exactly happily-ever-after, and when David is found murdered at his fortieth birthday party, Claire is consumed with guilt and despair.
After discovering that David's business associate, Ian Marshall, isn't who he seems to be, Claire demands answers. Ian isn't just a business associate-he works for the Bergman Holocaust Research Center and hunts Nazis. At present, he is searching for Lionel Elgin, a British man who was a Nazi spy. As Elgin is top on the list of suspects in David's murder, Claire needs answers and finds herself in the thick of things. Why was David involved with a Nazi fugitive, and why was he killed with a WWII antique knife?
Claire seeks to find answers as she accompanies a reluctant Ian as he searches for Elgin. And when the two find themselves in danger from an assassin as well as their attraction for each other, the pages really begin to heat up. But with their newfound love, Claire is still unable to totally trust Ian as Claire's father is at the top of Ian's list as the true Lionel Elgin.
While the romance between Ian and Claire is a little precipitous, their newfound attraction for each other adds spice to this read. With the mystery as the prime focus, the novel shines brightly, especially with the chapters referencing the long ago incidents in WWII England, shedding light on the present mystery. A sure winner, this one will captivate the mystery reader who enjoys the splash of romance.
