Description

From #1 bestselling author Blake Pierce comes a heart-pounding new mystery series.

In the cornfields of Nebraska a woman is found murdered, strung up on a pole, the victim of a deranged killer. It doesn’t take long for the police to realize a serial killer is on the loose—and that his spree has just begun.

Detective Mackenzie White, young, tough, smarter than the aging, chauvinistic men on her local force, finds herself called in grudgingly to help solve it. As much as the other officers hate to admit it, they need her young, brilliant mind, which has already helped crack cold cases that had left them stumped. Yet even for Mackenzie this new case proves an impossible riddle, something the likes of which she—and the local force—have ever seen.

With the FBI called in, together, an intense manhunt ensues. Mackenzie, reeling from her own dark past, her failed relationships, and her undeniable attraction to the new FBI agent, finds herself battling her own demons as her hunt for the killer takes her to the darkest places of her mind. As she delves into the killer’s mind, obsessing over his twisted psychology, she finds that evil truly does exist. She only hopes it will not be too late to extricate herself from it, as her entire life collapses around her.

As more bodies turn up dead and a frantic race against time ensues, there is no way out but to find him before he kills again.

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, BEFORE HE KILLS marks the debut of a riveting new series—and a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night. 

Book #2 in the Mackenzie White Mystery series will be available soon. 

Also available by Blake Pierce is ONCE GONE (A Riley Paige mystery—Book #1), a #1 bestseller!

    Suspenseful, detailed, multiple character perspectives...I read this book in just a few days! Being that I typically only read True Crime; I’m excited to read the 2nd book with Mackenzie White to see what her next journey holds!

    It had a good story. Very typical cop story that leads to catching the bad guy. Lots of grammatical errors throughout the book though. Sometimes had to re-read the sentence to have it make sense with what should be there. A good book nonetheless.
  • One of the best book

    That’s one of the best book I have read. The mystery of the killer, of it all, kept me on my toes. With every chapter, I wanted to know more on what’s next. I can say that I have enjoyed it very much.

    I read the Chloe Fine Series first because it’s a series and the order doesn’t matter. And after reading the reviews for both series, I’m so surprised no one has said it yet...this is the exact same plot line!! A dead parent. An estranged other parent. A relationship between sisters that’s frayed. A powerful female main character who is distracted by her failing love life. Like omg. I really dislike when authors have a formula they just plug the same info into and recycle throughout their books. Another thing, Chloe walks into a church and is surprised the book the priest is reading is the Bible. What idiot would be surprised to see this? Does she think priests read crime novels? Like cmon. Also, she must be living in a hole to not recognize the letters on the post were bible verses. Like duh. Very unbelievable storyline. If she’s a detective, she should know this stuff whether she’s religious or not. The thing that bothered me the most was the ending. It was super confusing. The killer says multiple times that his victim is naked and then she’s referred to as the victim in a pink bra. Where did her clothes magically appear from? Mackenzie also makes several references to being disrespected as a female cop and low and behold, her fellow male coworkers hold the door open for her. Is she grateful? Not at all. I was so disappointed with this book. I truly enjoyed the Chloe Fine Series but this is a series I will not be finishing.
