But how long can she go until she collapses under the weight of it all?

“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) 

HER LAST WISH (A Rachel Gift FBI Suspense Thriller—Book 1) is the debut novel 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 Rachel Gift, 33, unparalleled for her ability to enter the minds of serial killers, is a rising star in the Behavioral Crimes Unit—until a routine doctor visit reveals she has but a few months left to live.

Not wishing to burden others with her pain, Rachel decides, agonizing as it is, not to tell anyone—not even her boss, her partner, her husband, or her seven-year-old daughter. She wants to go down fighting, and to take as many serial killers with her as she can.

A serial killer strikes in the Virginia area, targeting women who seek fertility treatments. As Rachel enters his sick and twisted mind, she struggles to understand his motive, or the connection between the victims.

Worse, the case strikes too close to home, bringing up memories of her own fertility treatments, and her failed mission to have a second child. As she seeks insight from a diabolical, jailed serial killer, she immediately realizes it’s a mistake. Can he see right through her?

Can Rachel keep her secret and keep her deteriorating health at bay long enough to finish the job? Can she fulfill her own bucket list before she dies? And can she keep herself from descending down the dark hole of her own traumatic past?

A riveting and chilling crime thriller featuring a brilliant and flailing FBI agent, the RACHEL GIFT series is an unputdownable mystery, packed with suspense, twists and shocking secrets, propelled by a page-turning pace that will keep you bleary-eyed late into the night.

    It was a good book, but was expecting a different, more cliff hanging ending knowing that there are sequel books. Also, many grammatical errors.

    Great mystery novel by Pierce. Got you so you couldn’t put the book down until the end. And sort of leaves you hanging at the end so you have to read more of this author ! Great writing!
  • The story is really a good idea, however…

    By ThilmCo
    Since I read ebooks, it was clear that the publisher did not finish editing this book before putting it up for sale. As I was having to navigate around wrong punctuation and missed words and letters I was also wishing the story had been flushed out a bit more. Deeper character backgrounds and a lot more research into the particulars. Having family in law enforcement, in the FBI, and as a military veteran myself, I definitely noticed inconsistencies along the way. Overall though, I was compelled to finish the book. Not sure I want to continue the series, though, I’d like to find out what happens with Rachel.

    Great read really held my attention.
  • Why are they women LEOs emotional cripples

    By Rxnjsquir
    It is a standard formula that they do not follow procedure, act impulsively, and fail to call back up. If nothing else it reinforces a the stereotypical hormone driven, overly impulsive female that can not handle a “man’s” job. I will never vote for a woman since the majority act exactly like these brainless twits. If you doubt it look at congress or teachers union president or Harris the sex for promotions fool.

    I loved the unique storyline. It was easy to identify with the characters. HOWEVER, there were SO MANY TYPOS and even incorrect words, that it greatly distracted from the story.
