“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)
FACE OF DEATH is book #1 in a new FBI thriller series by USA Today bestselling author Blake Pierce, whose #1 bestseller Once Gone (Book #1) (a free download) has received over 1,000 five star reviews.
FBI Special Agent Zoe Prime suffers from a rare condition which also gives her a unique talent—she views the world through a lens of numbers. The numbers torment her, make her unable to relate to people, and give her a failed romantic life—yet they also allow her to see patterns that no other FBI agent can see. Zoe keeps her condition a secret, ashamed, in fear her colleagues may find out.
Yet when a serial killer strikes across the Midwest, strangling women in remote places and seemingly at random, Zoe, for the first time, is stumped. Is there a pattern? Can there be no pattern at all?
Or is this killer as obsessed with numbers as she is?
In a mad race against time, Zoe must enter the diabolical mind of a killer who always seems to be one step ahead of her, and stop him from claiming his next victim before it’s too late. At the same time, she must keep at bay her own demons, which may ultimately prove to be even more threatening.
An action-packed thriller with heart-pounding suspense, FACE OF DEATH is book #1 in a riveting new series that will leave you turning pages late into the night.
Books #2 and #3 in the series—FACE OF MURDER and FACE OF FEAR—are also available!

Different from what I normally read-would highly recommend.
If you like crime, you’ll like this. Unusual.Mavisromania
Strays from the other series
I finished the book only due to the fact I love Blake’s other series! This book was disjointed, No character had a full background, the killer and partner of Zoe were not established at all! Zoe I disliked straightaway due to her thinking that no one would understand her gift so she wasn’t willing to let anyone in and her gift should have been a positive from the outset! She was arrogant in the worst way!Repetition of numbers and patterns that had nothing to do with the story was mind numbing! Will probably only get the 2nd book if I have run out of others
Wow, hooked from the first page!!!
Once again, an absolutely enthralling story. Wonderful characters and gripping storyline.
This book grabs your attention from the first page and I found myself reading through until the early hours of the morning.
I highly recommend this book and in fact all books written by this author to any lover of crime and thriller novels. In fact, I already have to all my friends and family.
I’m so excited to read the next book.
