Publisher Description

“A masterpiece of thriller and mystery! The author did a magnificent job developing characters with a psychological side that is so well described that we feel inside their minds, follow their fears and cheer for their success. The plot is very intelligent and will keep you entertained throughout the book. 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) 

WATCHING (The Making of Riley Paige—Book One) is book #1 in a new psychological thriller series by #1 bestselling author Blake Pierce, whose  free bestseller Once Gone (Book #1) has received over 1,000 five star reviews. 

22 year old psychology major—and aspiring FBI agent—Riley Paige finds herself in a battle for her life as her closest friends on campus are abducted and killed by a serial killer. She senses that she, too, is being targeted—and that if she is to survive, she must apply her brilliant mind to stop the killer herself.

When the FBI hits a dead end, they are impressed enough by Riley’s keen insight into the killer’s mind to allow her to help. Yet the killer’s mind is a dark, twisted place, one too diabolical to make sense of, and one that threatens to bring Riley’s fragile psyche crashing down. In this deadly game of cat and mouse, can Riley survive unscarred?

It is also a standalone series, and you do not need to have read the Riley Paige series to jump into this series--which starts at the beginning!

An action-packed thriller with heart-pounding suspense, WATCHING is book #1 in a riveting new series that will leave you turning pages late into the night. It takes readers back 20 plus years—to how Riley’s career began—and is the perfect complement to the ONCE GONE series (A Riley Paige Mystery), which includes 16 books and counting.

WAITING (The Making of Riley Paige—Book 2) is also now available!

It was really good but took a long time to find out who the killer was, the ending was a bit disappointing I thought you would of told Ryan that she was pregnant and she was going to d.c too.
Overall good book.

Reads as very rushed story writing

Few mistakes in the plot, such as a character being in a place then suddenly not there. One character is referred to as male then suddenly female then back to male again. Wrong characters name is used a couple of times too.
Comes across as very rushed writing and as though it’s literally not been edited.
Unfortunately it does read as very amateurish.

Not good

I’ve read some of the Riley books before and really liked them but this one is awful. Sorry!
