Description

“A masterpiece of thriller and mystery! The author did a magnificent job developing characters with a psychological side that is so well described that we feel inside their minds, follow their fears and cheer for their success. The plot is very intelligent and will keep you entertained throughout the book. Full of twists, this book will keep you awake until the turn of the last page.” --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re Once Gone)

Women are turning up dead in the rural outskirts of Phoenix, killed in grotesque ways, and when the FBI is called in, they are stumped. A serial killer is out there, his frequency increasing, and they know there is only one agent who can crack this case: Special Agent Riley Paige.

Riley is on paid leave herself, recovering from her encounter with her last serial killer, and as fragile as she is, the FBI is reluctant to tap her brilliant mind. Yet Riley, needing to battle her own demons, comes on board, and her hunt leads her through the disturbing subculture of doll collectors, into the homes of broken families, and into the darkest canals of the killer’s mind. As Riley peels back the layers, she realizes she is up against a killer more twisted than she could have imagined, and in a frantic race against time, Riley is pushed to her limit, her job on the line, her own family in danger, and her fragile psyche collapsing.

Yet once Riley Paige takes on a case, she will not quit. It obsesses her, leading her to the darkest corners of her own mind, blurring the lines between hunter and hunted. After a series of unexpected twists, her instincts lead her to a shocking climax that even Riley could not have imagined.

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, ONCE GONE marks the debut of a riveting new series—and a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.

Book #2 in the Riley Paige series is also now available!

    A stimulating quick-read. I love how Pierce dives right into it & leaves out the drawn out, overly-descriptive writing style, once you start reading, you can't stop! Loved it :)

    Absolutely loved this book. Got it free and thought why not. Well now I'm hooked. I have read the other 3 in the series. Can't wait for more. Enjoy Blake's writing style. Really gets into the meat of the story with out all that fluffy description stuff,which I feel authors tend to use as filler. I want to know what's going on with the characters and that's exactly what these books do. Now I'll be looking for anything more Blake Pierce writes. Got but haven't read the 2 in the new series. Anyone I've recommend them too have really enjoyed them. Thanks from a big fan!! Cheers Pat C.

    A riveting book with fascinating characters, I couldn't put it down and read it in one afternoon. I picked up this book for free and have just purchased the next two books in the series. I have no doubt they'll be worth it.
