Cause to Run (An Avery Black Mystery-Book 2) by Blake Pierce

“A dynamic story line that grips from the first chapter and doesn't let go.”

--Midwest Book Review, Diane Donovan (regarding Once Gone)

From #1 bestselling mystery author Blake Pierce comes a new masterpiece of psychological suspense.

In CAUSE TO RUN (An Avery Black Mystery—Book 2), a new serial killer is stalking Boston, killing his victims in bizarre ways, taunting the police with mysterious puzzles that reference the stars. As the stakes are upped and the pressure is on, the Boston Police Department is forced to call in its most brilliant—and most controversial—homicide detective: Avery Black.

Avery, still reeling from her last case, finds herself up against a rival precinct and a brilliant, cunning killer who is always one step ahead of her. She is forced to enter his dark, twisted mind as he lays clues for his next killing, and forced to look into places in her own mind she would rather not go. She finds herself compelled to seek the counsel of Howard Randall, the twisted serial killer she’d put behind bars years ago, all while her new burgeoning life with Rose and Ramirez is falling apart.

And just as things cannot get any worse, she finds out something else: she herself may be the target.

In a game of psychological cat and mouse, a frantic race against time leads Avery through a series of shocking and unexpected twists—culminating in climax that even Avery could not imagine.

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, CAUSE TO RUN is book #2 of a riveting new series—with a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.

Book #3 in the Avery Black series will be available soon.

“A masterpiece of thriller and mystery. Pierce did a magnificent job developing characters with a psychological side, 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)

Seems like a good story so far but as with other books from this author, I have to ask who edits these things? The punctuation is horrible and makes it sometimes difficult to read. I'd give it 5 stars if it weren't for that.

This series is a don't miss read! From the first page to the last, the story grabs you and won't let go. This is the second book in the series and I'm already making plans to get the next books.

Story line was fine, but Avery is one big neurotic mess and, while I like complex characters, Avery rubbed me the wrong way. Took away from the story for sure. Hopefully the psychiatrist Sloane can help Avery out. Book was well edited.

If your are looking for a realistic police detective book, this one is not for you. If your are looking for a book with super stereotyped characters with a story line that is way over done. Your might like it.
