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!

Fan-friggen-tastic book5 star

I read thin in the small window of five hours. Altho it would have been cooler if Kate wize was the student instead of the teacher, you know, Learning about how to slice crimes and all, but it was still fantastic. It was a tiny bit repetitive, but it was pretty darn good.55

If she knew5 star

I really enjoyed this book in Blake Pierce’s Kate Wise series. I Iiked Kate’s pondering as she looks on her life, current and past. I think his partnering of Kate and DeMarco, was well written. It showed the invaluable benefit gained by each character; the experienced Kate and the just beginning DeMarco. I plan to read the rest of this series as well as others written by Blake Pierce.55
