Blake Pierce: Mystery Bundle (Before He Kills, Cause to Kill, Once Gone and A Trace of Death) by Blake Pierce

A four-book mystery bundle by #1 bestselling author Blake Pierce, author of ONCE GONE, a #1 bestseller on Amazon with over 500 five star reviews!

Here is a bundle of the first books in four Blake Pierce series--the Mackenzie White, the Avery Black, the Riley Paige, and the Keri Locke series--all here in one convenient place. This bundle offers a great introduction to Blake Pierce's series with over 200,000 words of reading.

In BEFORE HE KILLS, a woman is found murdered in the cornfields of Nebraska, strung up on a pole, the victim of a deranged killer. It doesn't take long for the police to realize a serial killer is on the loose--and that his spree has just begun. Detective Mackenzie White, young, tough, smarter than the aging, chauvinistic men on her local force, finds herself called in grudgingly to help solve it. As much as the other officers hate to admit it, they need her young, brilliant mind, which has already helped crack cold cases that had left them stumped. Yet even for Mackenzie this new case proves an impossible riddle, something the likes of which she--and the local force--have ever seen. With the FBI called in, together, an intense manhunt ensues. Mackenzie, reeling from her own dark past, her failed relationships, and her undeniable attraction to the new FBI agent, finds herself battling her own demons as her hunt for the killer takes her to the darkest places of her mind.

In CAUSE TO KILL, Homicide Detective Avery Black has been through hell. Once a top criminal defense attorney, she fell from grace when she managed to get a brilliant Harvard professor off--only to watch him kill again. She lost her husband and her daughter, and her life fell apart around her. Trying to redeem herself, Avery has turned to the other side of the law. Working her way up the ranks, she has reached Homicide Detective, to the scorn of her fellow officers, who still remember what she did, and who will always hate her.Yet even they cannot deny Avery's brilliant mind, and when a disturbing serial killer strikes fear into the heart of Boston, killing girls from elite colleges, it is Avery that they turn to. It is Avery's chance to prove herself, to finally find the redemption she craves. And yet, as she is soon to find out, Avery has come up against a killer as brilliant and daring as she.

In ONCE GONE, women are turning up dead in the rural outskirts of Virginia, 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 good enough to crack this case: Special Agent Riley Paige. Riley is on paid leave herself, recovering from her encounter with her last serial killer, and, 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.

In A TRACE OF DEATH, Keri Locke, Missing Persons Detective in the Homicide division of the LAPD, remains haunted by the abduction of her own daughter, years before, never found. Still obsessed with finding her, Keri buries her grief the only way she knows how: by throwing herself into the cases of missing persons in Los Angeles. A routine phone call from a worried mother of a high-schooler, only two hours missing, should be ignored. Yet something about the mother's voice strikes a chord, and Keri decides to investigate. What she finds shocks her. The missing daughter--of a prominent senator--was hiding secrets no one knew. When all evidence points to a runaway, Keri is ordered off the case. And yet, despite pressure from her superiors, from the media, despite all trails going cold, the brilliant and obsessed Keri refuses to let it go. She knows she has but 48 hours if she has any chance of bringing this girl back alive.

Dark psychological thrillers with heart-pounding suspense, BEFORE HE KILLS, CAUSE TO KILL, ONCE GONE, and A TRACE OF DEATH mark the debut of riveting new series--and beloved new characters--that will leave you turning pages late into the night. Books #2 and #3 in the Riley Paige series are also available!

I've enjoyed a few of this author's books. I didn't care for Avery's character which is tough when she's the main character. Editing missed some real obvious bloopers in each book that I've read.

My favorite is MacKenzie White. The other two are good too. The writer knows how to pull you in to the story. Like someone else wrote got this free and purchased the others. Start with MacKenzie first. Then read the others

Good mysteries that keep your interest. The crazy female detective that goes off on her own and saves the day gets a little old but otherwise good.

Heroine mentally unstable and would never be allowed to carry a gun. I particularly dislike the plot contrivance of heroine as victim. ALSO THE HEROINES ALL HAVE INCREDIBLE physical strength and triumph in hand to hand combat with larger male opponents. There is not a shred of reality in the plot or the characters.

This bundle is a waste of time. The main character in the first book has some personality disorder and is so unlikable I stopped after a few pages. The main character in the second book is a nicer person, but the author has absolutely no concept of investigative procedure. Then it seemed as though the story was becoming a romance instead of a mystery, until the hunky FBI agent admits he is married. Plus, the story is set sort of somewhere near Omaha and none of the descriptions of the terrain or the area or the culture ring true if you happen to have actual knowledge about Nebraska. I gave up on this one, too. Didn't bother with the third book. Sorry, but I honestly don't see any of the positives that other reviewers claim.
