FBI Agent Ella Dark has studied serial killers from the time she could read, devastated by the murder of her own sister, and has gained an encyclopedic knowledge of murderers. But when victims are found murdered in the Pacific Northwest, their bodies strung up high in the branches of Redwood trees, Ella finds everything she’s known to be put to the test. Is she wrong?
“A MASTERPIECE OF THRILLER AND MYSTERY. Blake Pierce did a magnificent job developing characters with a psychological side so well described that we feel inside their minds, follow their fears and cheer for their success. 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)

GIRL, TAKEN (An Ella Dark FBI Suspense Thriller) is book #2 in a long-anticipated new series by #1 bestseller and USA Today bestselling author Blake Pierce, whose bestseller Once Gone (a free download) has received over 1,000 five star reviews.

FBI Agent Ella Dark, 29, is given her big chance to achieve her life’s dream: to join the Behavioral Crimes Unit. Ella’s hidden obsession of gaining an encyclopedic knowledge of serial killers has led to her being singled out for her brilliant mind, and invited to join the big leagues.

This time, though, Ella’s special talent seems to have disappeared.

Can she catch a killer without it?

Or will it return to her too late?

A page-turning and harrowing crime thriller featuring a brilliant and tortured FBI agent, the ELLA DARK series is a riveting mystery, packed with suspense, twists and turns, revelations, and driven by a breakneck pace that will keep you flipping pages late into the night.

  • Girl taken

    By tinacanspell
    Terrible. The author should be humiliated. The poor grammar and spelling are a reflection of the author.
  • Girl Taken

    By anynameshouldwork
    Way too many grammatical errors beginning with the first sentence! Does the publisher even proof the book before presenting it to the public?
  • More of the same but more

    By Burtch Lee509
    This was a much more enjoyable than book 1 and had a lot of flow in each episode.

  • Love it suspense up to the max

    By Salon316
    I loved it. Very suspenseful so much so I couldn't read it at night but towards the end of it I couldn't put it down and I've already order the next one. Very good read.
  • Get An Editor

    By Grammyland
    This book needs editing! There are extra words, words left out, misspelled words and grammatically wrong words on almost every page. It really distracts from the story.
  • It’s complicated.

    By SykoraB
    I adore this writer and her great storytelling but this story just seemed so out of nowhere. In the first book I felt like Mia & Ella were really a team and this book took that a completely different direction and I really disliked that. While I enjoyed reading it and I wanted to keep reading it, there was a lot to it that made no sense. The story overall was okay, but the serial killers in this one were so out there and unbelievable it crossed the lines of fiction into ridiculous. I will read the next book in hopes it’s better than this one but so far this has been my least favorite by Blake Pierce.
  • Frustrating…

    By 158933900flhdjydc
    I enjoyed the content of this book but became increasingly frustrated at the poor editing. There are so many typos and grammatical errors. I wish the quality of the editing matched the quality of the content.
  • Research and editing are good

    By battynurse
    There are a fair amount of typos and editing mistakes but I’m ok with those. However I’m 200 pages in and I can’t get past the fact that the author has obviously never been to the city the story is based in (Seattle) and didn’t bother doing much research on the area. I kept coming across place descriptions that didn’t fit with the city I live in but trying to ignore. Then the author just mentioned that Bainbridge was 4 miles from the precinct and a ten minute drive. Umm, no. It’s an island! So it’s a 30 minute ferry ride plus wait times etc. Or it’s at least an hour and a half to drive around the sound. Kind of bummed as I liked the first book.
  • Lots of typos! But great story line

    By tsopharmd
    I definitely enjoy these types of books. The story had great progression of the main characters and the dynamics of both FBI agents is very interesting. I have read both book 1 and now book 2 in this series and plan to continue with the remaining books. I do believe, however, that whomever the editor is for this series, he/she needs to do a bit better job on the proofreading.
