Spell binding book never wanted to put it down awesome read.

Good book with obvious flaws but an enjoyable read. To believe a town police force wouldn’t have enough cops to assist an FBI chasing a serial killer letting her go alone defies police procedures. Then after the security guard was murdered, Dark says at least no one died here tonight?!! Oops. Did he not count. Leaving the rookie in the house while all the other cops ran after ?? He was still in the house so who were they chasing. Why did she let the serial killer , once apprehended get so close to her? She ordered him on his knees hands on head. Next he hits her with the oak limb. I really like this author but a bit more attention to small details could’ve really made this a top notch thriller.

This was such a great read! Blake Pierce does it again!!! Thrills and breath holding at its best.

I’ve never really been into thriller novels however I loved this book and I’m off to read the next one

I am not sure if the author is female or male. The use of all female main characters makes me lean towards the author being female. Unlike many others, this book is easy to read and enjoy. While the main characters are very capable, they are not built to be totally unbelievable or obnoxiously feminist. The book has a compressed time line. It does it without the reader feeling overwhelmed or annoyed. I found I was keen to pick it up to continue reading the story.

It was a good read thrilling from start to finish.

What a brilliant book that engages you straight away right through to the very end. Can’t wait to read book 2.

Please! There is nothing worse than breaking up your reading flow because of spelling errors , missing words etc.

Amazing read

I generally don’t like to stop reading mid way through a book but couldn’t stomach any more of this past about the halfway point. Just seems so cliched and boring and uninspired. Somewhat interesting idea for a killer but rest is just standard fare done way better most everywhere else. Can’t believe this is book one of like 6 or more. Will not be reading any further and I’m going so far as to delete the copy of book one I purchased, I disliked this so much I’ve bought about 2-3 books a month for years on iBooks and sadly only ever have made one other review I think and that was for a terrible read also. I don’t expect people to listen to my opinion on what’s great but hope I can help anybody from wasting time on drivel like this when there’s so much great stuff out there

Great read,I could picture the characters and felt their fear.Well written and a exciting read. Would recommend if you like a good thriller.

1.5 stars The author is American and has churned out at least 6 series of thrillers involving female protagonists with names like Avery, Riley, and Mackenzie. This represents of the start of yet another series involving rookie FBI agent Ella Dark. In brief Our gal had a bad childhood and has studied serial killers all her life, not because she wants to be one but because she wants to catch those suckers. She gets sidelined into clerical /research jobs in law enforcement until one day, one evening in fact, the (male) director of the behavioural unit plucks her from obscurity to look into a fresh case of female dismemberment down in Louisiana. The thing that distinguishes Ella’s elevation from that of another Southern gal from a broken home named Clarice, is that she’s paired up with an experienced female agent, not a male one, in this instance a cynical fifty-something, hard drinking, yet extremely fit looking gal named something or other, who says there’s nothing to indicate a serial killer apart from all the bodies that keep showing up. (A significant factor, I would have thought, but hey, what would I know? I’m no detective, just an old white guy.) Our gal sees the pattern though. The killer is restaging the modus operandi of other North American serial killers, some better known than others, all the while building to his piece de resistance: Bundyland. Can she stop him in time? Writing Better edited than the previous effort I read by Ms Pierce but the same breathless, high school writer style, riddled with plot and character inconsistencies. Bottom line I read it because it was free, okay? An extra half star for the concise summaries of how the various serial killers did their thang, which saved me having to go to Wikipedia. Judging by the number of positive reviews of this, and the author’s many other books, on Goodreads, other people feel differently to me.

😾😾

Another great series, writing about a new FBI agent finding her feet twists and turns with each page

Really good book, leaving you guessing throughout. Definitely recommend!

A damn good read!

I could not put this book down. Great book - great author. Excited to read book 2…

Despite the few grammatical errors this book was exciting, captivating, and had me gripped from the first chapter. Great story!

Loved the way Ella starts out wanting to be an fbi profiler whilst being an analyst and her chance arrives with her hero in the field becoming her mentor. With bodies piling up it’s clear she needs to earn her stripes and fast! Along the way she battles a violent but organised killer who gives her more trouble than she’d imagined. Books don’t always tell the whole tale. Fortunately this one does. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will read more in the series.

Great book but so many grammatical errors & misplaced words!

Excellent book.. really enjoyed it, couldn’t put it down Great author..!

Fast paced, exciting action with believable, sympathetic, smart female characters leading the way. Loved this and finished it within hours of starting. Now on to books 2, 3, 4….and more. Once you discover writing this good, you just have to read more.

Easy but captivating read!

I feel like this was a good base start to the series, something that opens the door and invites you in while giving you a good crime story. Definitely recommend.
