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)
IF SHE KNEW (A Kate Wise Mystery) is book #1 in a new psychological thriller series by bestselling author Blake Pierce, whose #1 bestseller Once Gone (Book #1) (a free download) has received over 1,000 five star reviews.
55 year old empty nester—and freshly retired FBI agent—Kate Wise finds herself drawn out of her quiet suburban life when her friend’s daughter is murdered in a home invasion—and she is implored to help.
Kate thought she left the FBI behind after 30 years as their top agent, respected for her brilliant mind, tough street skills and her uncanny ability to hunt down serial killers. Yet Kate, bored with the quiet town, at a crossroads in life, is summoned by a friend she can’t turn down.
As Kate hunts the killer, she soon finds herself at the forefront of a manhunt, as more bodies turn up—all suburban moms in perfect marriages—and it becomes apparent there is a serial killer stalking this quiet town. She unearths secrets from her neighbors she wishes she never knew, discovering that all is not what it seems in this picture of model streets and neighbors. Affairs and lying are rampant, and Kate must sift through the town’s underbelly if she will stop the killer from striking again.
But this killer is one step ahead of her, and it may end up being Kate who is in danger.
An action-packed thriller with heart-pounding suspense, IF SHE KNEW is book #1 in a riveting new series that will leave you turning pages late into the night.
Book #2 in the KATE WISE MYSTERY series is available for pre-order!
This book had me on edge, I was hooked from the minute I started reading it. at one point I had a feeling who the unsub was but then as I contained reading, everything that I thought I knew about who the killer was , wasn’t. I couldn’t put this book down, can’t wait to start book 2.55
Half of the book was nothing but repetition. How many times do we need to be reminded that she’s 55, retired for 1 year, and a grandmother?25
I enjoyed the characters and the story line. It was simple but not dragging so read in one shot. There were several typos which I find distracting but I otherwise enjoyed it.45
This book is amazing and very interesting with twists and turns along the way. If you’re interested in crime and mystery, this is a very good book to read.55
Fascinating. I had not read many books lately but I couldn’t put this book down! Loved it and want to read more from this author!55
I enjoy excitement in that book. It was something that happened, then it was what was happening from what happened at the beginning. I liked it!55
Riveting, intelligent, adrenaline pumping suspenseful.. page turner!55
Only if she knew55
Author lies in the book to throw off readers to figure out who is the killer. There is other ways to do that.15
