“A masterpiece of thriller and mystery! The author did a magnificent job developing characters with a psychological side that is so well described that we feel inside their minds, follow their fears and cheer for their success. The plot is very intelligent and will keep you entertained throughout the book. 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)

ONCE LURED is book #4 in the bestselling Riley Paige mystery series, which begins with the #1 bestseller ONCE GONE (Book #1)!
Women are turning up dead on a lone stretch of highway in Delaware. Some go missing for an inexplicable length of time, while others are turning up dead, their bodies left out for display in bizarre and mysterious ways. When a pattern is discovered, it becomes clear to the FBI that a twisted serial killer is on the hunt—luring girls in devious schemes—and that he won’t stop killing, ever.

The FBI, desperate to crack the case, urges Special Agent Riley Paige to take it on. But the brilliant Riley, still reeling from past cases, has finally found peace in her home life, and is determined to help her daughter April get back on her feet. Yet when the murders become too disturbing, too urgent—and when her former partner Bill implores her—Riley finally realizes she can’t say no.

Riley’s hunt leads her deep into the unsettling world of hitchhikers, of drifters, of women that no one else cares for. When she discovers that several women are being kept alive and that there is still time to save them, she realizes she will stop at nothing, obsessing over the case and driving herself to the brink. Yet Riley realizes her own life is falling apart, and her own fragile psyche can barely handle the strain. In a frantic race against time, she will have to plunge deep into the killer’s mind to save these women—and to save herself—from collapse.

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, ONCE LURED is book #4 in a riveting new series—with a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.

Book #5 in the Riley Paige series will be available soon.


  • I’ll edit!

    By Issy's MomMom
    I love the stories and characters but will no longer spend money on books riddled with so many errors!
  • Like the story but....

    By Jokimann
    I enjoyed reading another in the Riley Paige series but the typos are so distracting. There were more in this book than the previous books. Blake Pierce keeps your attention! Editors or proofreading needs to improve.
  • Another great Book

    By ibbarney
    This is another great book in the series Riley Paige. Hard to put down. Looking forward to book 5 in the series
  • I agree with grammar !

    By Onioneye
    The stories are great and page turning, I would have rated this book a 4 or 5. But the editing misses were the worst I have seen. And, I am not a detail oriented person. Please get a better editor, you are very talented.
  • Grammar

    By *catlady
    Great stories. But for the love of all things good and holy, find a new editor. The grammar mistakes and wrong character names (book 3 I believe- Something about Riley enjoying her school when the paragraph was talking about April), etc.
  • Thrilling books but..

    By Heather_CHEERS
    I really am enjoying this series so far. My only critique is that Riley is always getting herself in trouble, it’s really irritating cause you know exactly what’s she’s going to do. I wish she would just think a little before going off and being a hero on her own. I’m getting tired of reading that’s she’s gotten herself in trouble or her badge taken away and it’s only the 4th or 5th book. Otherwise, these books are a great read and i enjoy the suspense of what will happen next.
  • Errors in transcription

    All I need to say is proofread more carefully before printing. Books 1-4 all have a lot of typos, but I love the stories.
