Candice Fox is at the top of her form in The Chase.

It is gripping from the first to the last line.

When 653 violent human beings pour out from Pronghorn Correctional Facility into the Nevada Desert, including serial killers from Death Row, the biggest manhunt in history begins. Death row supervisor Celine Osbourne turns fugitive hunter. Her mission? To catch John Kradle who is trying to prove his innocence, five years after being convicted of the murder of his wife and child. Celine is determined to catch him. She has very personal reasons for hating him – and she knows exactly where he’s heading.
