The plot of this novel too promises a dizzying thrill to the readers. It takes them to an interesting ride full of suspense, danger, and action sequences. In the opening sequence of the plot of the novel, it is shown that Officer Trish Robinson is carrying out her routine patrolling job during one night.

The rookie officer does not expect any action to happen just like most of the times during her routine duty schedule. But soon, she and her training officer receive a prowler call coming from a remote estate. What follows next is an ambush between the two officers and the ruthless crew of criminals. After a few hours into the fight, Officer Trish Robinson becomes disarmed and totally cut off from any help from her police department. She also seems outnumbered and lonely in the fight against the five criminals. However, the rookie officer possesses some inner resources that she was not aware of previously. Just as she begins to think that her end is near, she starts drawing strength from her inner resources. The next plot of the novel turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse between Trish Robinson and the hardened killers, in which everyone tries desperately to survive the battle.

One of the other initial novels written by author Michael Prescott was published under the title ‘Blind Pursuit’.

In the opening sequence of the plot of the novel, Erin Reilly is introduced as a psychologist. She gets kidnapped from her house located in Tucson during the one extremely dark night. In turns out that the kidnapper of Erin Reilly is a serial killer, who is notorious for burn his victims alive. He is also on the top of the wanted list of the city police. However, the kidnapper has no intentions of killing Erin Reilly. In fact, he seems to be tormented because of his obsession and wants Erin Reilly to carry out his treatment and cure him so that he does not kill any other victim.

This appears to be the most difficult job for her because if anything goes wrong during the treatment, she will end up being the next victim of the serial killer. The twin sister of Erin Reilly named Annie seems to be searching her desperately, while Erin tries to look into the psyche and the past life of her captor. Soon, she comes to know about a secret guilt that the kidnapper possesses. Also, Erin learns about a complex web of betrayal and crime, and an unknown connection between herself and the killer. These revelations help Erin Reilly to carry out the treatment of her captor that helps him to recover from his tormented obsession. Just like the previous novel published by author Prescott, this novel too went on to become highly successful. It even helped Prescott to increase his popularity even further.
