From #1 bestselling author Blake Pierce comes a heart-pounding new mystery series.

In the cornfields of Nebraska a woman is found murdered, 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. As she delves into the killer’s mind, obsessing over his twisted psychology, she finds that evil truly does exist. She only hopes it will not be too late to extricate herself from it, as her entire life collapses around her.

As more bodies turn up dead and a frantic race against time ensues, there is no way out but to find him before he kills again.

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, BEFORE HE KILLS 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 Mackenzie White Mystery series will be available soon. 

Also available by Blake Pierce is ONCE GONE (A Riley Paige mystery—Book #1), a #1 bestseller!

    I enjoyed getting to know McKenzie. Glad to see a character with flaws and not loved by everyone.

    From n0rthernlite
    I'm not going to lie, I really didn't like it at first, there was just something about it that rubbed me the wrong way:/ But darn it, it ended with that 'Lindsey Boxer' feel, and now I can't help but wonder about her next chapter in life, go figure heh heh

    From Dodycam
    The book is interesting. Well written and directed. The only thing I found out was ln the last chapter, the killer had stripped her naked, and when she came into the house, she had underware on. Other than that, I did enjoy it.
