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.

  • Her Last Wish

    By Harleysof1972
    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.
  • Good story. Many typos.

    By AZHook
    The story was well written and kept me involved. Unfortunately, the book is riddled with autocorrected typos causing a disruption in the flow as I paused to decipher and replace the word with the correct word.
  • Her Last Wish

    By River Quest
    I’ve read many of Blake Pierce’s books and this did not disappoint, except for the many typos. One thing that did bother me was her reluctance to tell those close to her about her illness.it seems a bit selfish to withhold something that serious from those it could most affect.But, the story itself keeps your attention and I do look forward to the next book.
  • Love Pierce’s stories, however

    By Issy's MomMom
    The nonstop typos are so distracting. I’ll read her free ebooks, but cannot fathom paying to read books turned out by the dozen with no proofreading or editing.
  • Reader

    By BirdladySC
    The story is really good but the book is filled with tons of typographical errors!
  • An amazing dual path drama.

    By CoriLyons
    One of the most captivating books I have ever read. The turmoil FBI agent Rachel battles is gut wrenching; you know she can’t continue the duplicity - it’s just a matter of time. I did note several typos an realized I should have annotated those as j read.
  • Great story, but…

    By JoleeCee
    As much of Blake Pierce’s body of work, this book is well written with well developed characters and storyline. What was distracting was the amount of typos, transpositions, etc. I was so surprised as I was reading and finding errors that I thought this wasn’t a Blake Pierce book at all, but it was confirmed on completion. Have another go at the editing and release an update. It’s not just a couple errors, there are many.
  • Not up to par

    By chattykathytoo
    I’ve read many of this author’s books and thought they were great, but the last two I’ve read have had too many distracting typos. It seems no one bothered to proof read the manuscript. The age of the daughter kept changing and I really don’t think an almost eight year old would be in kindergarten. Instead of “been” it was “bene” multiple times, and on and on. Very disappointed.
