“A MASTERPIECE OF THRILLER AND MYSTERY. Blake 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. 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!

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
Decent story line. Tons of typos.45
The motive was never really revealed.45
The author got a bit carried away with “ho hum” details that really didn’t enhance the story but otherwise it was a good book.45
This book really captivated me couldn’t wait for the next page. Loved this writing style along with the characters55
I could not get further along in this book than page 58. It didn’t capture my attention and simply isn’t very well written. Just not the book for me.25
Must read! I am definitely going to read book #2!!55
Best book I’ve read in a while. It definitely held my interest page after page. I kept trying to figure out who the killer could be but had no idea it was who it turned out to be. Great story teller!55
