LEFT TO DIE is book #1 in a new FBI thriller series by USA Today bestselling author Blake Pierce, whose #1 bestseller Once Gone (Book #1) (a free download) has received over 1,000 five star reviews. 

FBI special agent Adele Sharp is a German-and-French raised American with triple citizenship—and an invaluable asset in bringing criminals to justice as they cross American and European borders.

When a serial killer case spanning three U.S. states goes cold, Adele returns to San Francisco and to the man she hopes to marry. But after a shocking twist, a new lead surfaces and Adele is dispatched to Paris, to lead an international manhunt.

Adele returns to the Europe of her childhood, where familiar Parisian streets, old friends from the DGSI and her estranged father reignite her dormant obsession with solving her own mother’s murder. All the while she must hunt down the diabolical killer, must enter the dark canals of his psychotic mind to know where he will strike next—and save the next victim before it’s too late.

An action-packed mystery series of international intrigue and riveting suspense, LEFT TO DIE will have you turning pages late into the night.

Books #2-#10 in the series are now also available!

Yikes1 star

I made it about 2 pages in. This stinks of “woman written by a man,” so the one star is for if you’d like a good laugh at how stupid and cringe-y the writing is.15

Just Mediocre1 star

Book was not that interesting, stale, repetitive and seemed to be missing a foundation. Glad I didnt pay for this and wont be reading any others. Too many other better books out there.15

Mediocre writing and disjointed2 star

This book started out seemingly like it would be terrific. The storyline was unfortunately quite undeveloped and then just painful with connections made too quickly that simply did not seem plausible. This Blake Pierce was a real miss.25
