Writing Career

Starting with her ‘Emily Stone’ series of novels, Jennifer Chase would make her literary debut with ‘Compulsion’ back in 2008.

These books would continue over the years with almost six books and counting, as each title would feature a different mystery to solve.

Chase would go on to create other series too, including the ‘Chip Palmer Forensic Mystery’ series in 2016, and the ‘Detective Katie Scott’ series in 2019. She would also write a stand-alone title called ‘Silent Partner’ in 2010, as well as a screenwriting workbook, plus she serves as part of the ‘International Association of Forensic Criminologists’.

Using her covert team, Emily Stone must help uncover the killer before it’s too late and they strike again, as they find themselves up against the clock. Will they be able to find the killer before it’s too late? Can they stop them from striking again? Who is next to turn up dead cold?

When two sisters, one eleven and the other twelve, are found dead from a fall at the bottom of a ravine, Detective Katie Scott faces one of her most heartbreaking cases yet. Soon it transpires that they weren’t actually biological sisters, and the youngest, Megan, is DNA matched to a kidnapping victim from years earlier. It appears that the young girl was part of a collection of young victims held by a sadistic killer, and there could be more out there. Dealing with the case, Katie Scott must also manage her own PTSD, as demons from her past threaten to come up, all the while investigating the fragile ones.

    Reading the Katie Scott books, but I want to know if Cisco gets hurt or injured. If so, I don’t want to read about it. I will stop reading this series, because Cisco getting killed or worse seems inevitable.
