Publisher Description

From #1 bestselling mystery and suspense author Blake Pierce comes a gripping new series: when a serial killer escapes from a mental hospital, the FBI creates an elite unit to target criminally-insane killers. FBI Special Agent Valerie Law, a rising star, is the perfect candidate—but for Valerie, this case may just hit too close to home.

“A masterpiece of thriller and mystery.”

—Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re Once Gone)

With an insane killer on a spree, the clock is ticking for Valerie and her partner—and the brilliant psychiatrist on their team—to enter his mind and stop him before he strikes again. The twisted pathway to his psyche takes them down the dark road of the killer’s past, into orphanages, alienated family members, and shattered survivors.

It is a road that may be too dark for even Valerie—one of the best BAU agents—to head down. She has tried too hard to escape her own past to withstand much more on her psyche.

And when the killer sets his sights on her, it may just be her final undoing.

Is Valerie one step ahead of this killer?

Or has she walked right into a trap?

A page-turning crime thriller featuring a brilliant and haunted new female protagonist, the VALERIE LAW mystery series is packed with suspense and driven by a breakneck pace that will keep you turning pages late into the night.

No to this crime fighter

I really like all other Blake Pierce characters and enjoy reading his books. It wasn’t just the unlikeable character but this is the first book I’ve felt that some of the scenes were implausible.

At one time I sought out BP’s books, feeling they were some of the best mysteries out there - well crafted, riveting, and difficult to put down. More recently, after reading books from several of the many, many series BP is writing, I have a different opinion. Clearly they are being churned out too quickly. Plots are similar, written to a formula, regardless of which series. The lead characters are indistinguishable. Generally, I find the more recent books very amateurish.

And if that were not enough, I take great exception to all the spelling, grammar and syntax mistakes. Does no one proofread these?!
