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!
If She Knew5By adorableredI rarely give 5 stars to a book, but this one truly deserves all 5. The characters are well developed, the plot rapidly moves along, yet still allows the reader time to understand the mind of the main character, Kate Wise. Her instincts are impeccable. I look forward to reading more books in this series. Agent Kate Wise and Agent DeMarco are a great team!
If She Knew by Blake Pierce3By Faithful WretchI would have rated his fast-paced suspense novel a 4 or 5 star book, if I wasn’t so bothered by the uses of God’s name in vain. The main character is described as a believer in God, but not so sure about Jesus. Another character talks about Christianity like it’s pure fantasy. I know this isn’t a Christian novel, but I ‘d rather know that the characters are total atheists, than read about characters who are so smug in their own intelligence that they have to be so downright negative about Jesus.
Just in time finish5By gmw1969Why did DeMarco show up at the killer’s house? Just the routine return to finish questioning him?
If she knew5By Clean romancerGreat mystery. Great characters. Hard to put down. Still needs some proofreading. It’s distracting to have to restructure a sentence to make it make sense.
