Description

“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) 

IF SHE KNEW (A Kate Wise Mystery) is book #1 in a new psychological thriller series by bestselling author Blake Pierce, whose #1 bestseller Once Gone (Book #1) (a free download) has received over 1,000 five star reviews. 

55 year old empty nester—and freshly retired FBI agent—Kate Wise finds herself drawn out of her quiet suburban life when her friend’s daughter is murdered in a home invasion—and she is implored to help.

Kate thought she left the FBI behind after 30 years as their top agent, respected for her brilliant mind, tough street skills and her uncanny ability to hunt down serial killers. Yet Kate, bored with the quiet town, at a crossroads in life, is summoned by a friend she can’t turn down.

As Kate hunts the killer, she soon finds herself at the forefront of a manhunt, as more bodies turn up—all suburban moms in perfect marriages—and it becomes apparent there is a serial killer stalking this quiet town. She unearths secrets from her neighbors she wishes she never knew, discovering that all is not what it seems in this picture of model streets and neighbors. Affairs and lying are rampant, and Kate must sift through the town’s underbelly if she will stop the killer from striking again.

But this killer is one step ahead of her, and it may end up being Kate who is in danger.

An action-packed thriller with heart-pounding suspense, IF SHE KNEW is book #1 in a riveting new series that will leave you turning pages late into the night. 

Book #2 in the KATE WISE MYSTERY series is available for pre-order!

    Good read, went through it in 3 days. Keeps you on your toes and is interesting. I would give a 4/5 star if the book hadn’t had so many typos and there hadn’t been a hole towards the end that didn’t line up about the solving of the murder. Also, it bugged me that they only ever interviewed neighbors once rather than surrounding neighbors of all the cases. Just didn’t make sense. Maybe I’m too technical, but just felt somethings were left out that made me disconnect from the story and to make me not fully dive in.

    Wow! I’m not much of a book person but this book caught my interest from chapter one! I was thrown off so many times and by the finally chapter I was ready to see what book 2 had to offer. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who like mysteries.

    I rarely give 5 stars to a book, but this one truly deserves all 5. The characters are well developed, the plot rapidly moves along, yet still allows the reader time to understand the mind of the main character, Kate Wise. Her instincts are impeccable. I look forward to reading more books in this series. Agent Kate Wise and Agent DeMarco are a great team!

    I would have rated his fast-paced suspense novel a 4 or 5 star book, if I wasn’t so bothered by the uses of God’s name in vain. The main character is described as a believer in God, but not so sure about Jesus. Another character talks about Christianity like it’s pure fantasy. I know this isn’t a Christian novel, but I ‘d rather know that the characters are total atheists, than read about characters who are so smug in their own intelligence that they have to be so downright negative about Jesus.
  • Just in time finish

    Why did DeMarco show up at the killer’s house? Just the routine return to finish questioning him?
