Reviewed by Jamie Michele for Readers' Favorite

Pursuit by Indy Quillen is the second novel in her Fox Walker series, preceded by her award-winning debut, Tracker. While Pursuit picks up where Tracker leaves off, it reads perfectly well as a stand-alone (although you'd be missing out in going that route). Fox Walker is an expert tracker, called upon to assist in finding Matt Logan, a survivalist, sleuth, and former Navy SEAL who's escaped and is evading recapture following a murder conviction. As Walker and his new partner, Nataya, search for Logan at the behest of the FBI, Walker begins to suspect there is more to Logan's precipitous demise than what's been portrayed...but in order to find the truth, Walker must first outplay Logan in a wilderness that both cat and mouse are equally skilled in navigating.

I set the book down two days ago and am still on a bit of a high from this read. Indy Quillen has taken several unique themes and, somehow, has created a fully engrossing tale of (and in) Pursuit. Walker is a fantastically well developed main character who is instantly likeable. Humility, expertise, patience, and a broad skill set encapsulate this Native American protagonist. Logan, too, is so well depicted that I spent many chapters with my heart strung out in the hope of a mutually beneficial resolution for both men. The plot is deep and Quillen's portrayal of living completely off the grid offers an authentic glimpse into survivalism in a way that elevates an already great story. I would enthusiastically recommend this book to readers who are on the hunt for an exceptional thriller.
