The Chase: A Christian Psychological Thriller is a work of Christian fiction in the thriller genre and is part of the Clary Austin series. It is aimed at adult readers owing to some mature subject matter and dark references and was penned by author Charles Besondy. The story follows the journey of a woman named Sheryl, who has escaped a life of depression and hardship through her faith and the family she and her husband are starting. But when evil seeps its way into her heart once more, Sheryl must find a way to open her heart to God for protection against the wicked presence threatening her very soul.

Author Charles Besondy deals with intense and serious issues in a compassionate manner and, despite the darker undertones of the novel, there is an essence of hope that shines through. Sheryl is a damaged and flawed character, with close narrative details that give her depth and make her feel real and relatable to the audience. Watching her learn and develop was both gripping and rewarding. The author is a magnificent story crafter, delivering an engaging and suspenseful narrative that leaves you wanting more, but also concludes each small part of the story in a satisfying way. The attention to detail is second to none, giving us a clear and vivid description of the world in which the novel is set. This story is an emotional ride for both the characters and the reader in the best way possible, and I would not hesitate to recommend The Chase to fans of thriller novels and multifaceted characters.
