“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) 

WATCHING (The Making of Riley Paige—Book One) is book #1 in a new psychological thriller series by #1 bestselling author Blake Pierce, whose  free bestseller Once Gone (Book #1) has received over 1,000 five star reviews. 

22 year old psychology major—and aspiring FBI agent—Riley Paige finds herself in a battle for her life as her closest friends on campus are abducted and killed by a serial killer. She senses that she, too, is being targeted—and that if she is to survive, she must apply her brilliant mind to stop the killer herself.

When the FBI hits a dead end, they are impressed enough by Riley’s keen insight into the killer’s mind to allow her to help. Yet the killer’s mind is a dark, twisted place, one too diabolical to make sense of, and one that threatens to bring Riley’s fragile psyche crashing down. In this deadly game of cat and mouse, can Riley survive unscarred?

It is also a standalone series, and you do not need to have read the Riley Paige series to jump into this series--which starts at the beginning!

An action-packed thriller with heart-pounding suspense, WATCHING is book #1 in a riveting new series that will leave you turning pages late into the night. It takes readers back 20 plus years—to how Riley’s career began—and is the perfect complement to the ONCE GONE series (A Riley Paige Mystery), which includes 16 books and counting. .

WAITING (The Making of Riley Paige—Book 2) is also now available!

    I’ve read the Riley Paige series, need something to do at work, but the grammatical errors are annoying. At some point the wrong characters name was used for an entire convo sequence. Who proofreads for you dude?

    Overall a good read. Some parts were slow and the material did not lend to the overall story.
  • Great book!

    Really good book. Couldn’t put it down. I figured out the killer fairly quickly, but that’s the reason I read these books- to pretend i’m some investigator. A couple of editing mistakes but the plot more than made up for it.

    I really enjoyed this book could not put it down. This author writes fast moving tales and they are wonderful. The only thing that I noticed is that it was poorly proofed. There are many places where the wording is scrambled and it is distracting to the reader which is a shame for such a fine work.

    Another excellent book by Blake Pierce. I just had to finish it! I have read Books 1 and 2 of the Riley Paige series, plus one each of the series of Keri Locke and Avery Black. Each and every one was outstanding. I look forward to reading many more great books by this author.
