Publisher Description

From #1 bestselling author Blake Pierce comes a heart-pounding new mystery series.


In the cornfields of Nebraska a woman is found murdered, strung up on a pole, the victim of a deranged killer. It doesn’t take long for the police to realize a serial killer is on the loose—and that his spree has just begun.


Detective Mackenzie White, young, tough, smarter than the aging, chauvinistic men on her local force, finds herself called in grudgingly to help solve it. As much as the other officers hate to admit it, they need her young, brilliant mind, which has already helped crack cold cases that had left them stumped. Yet even for Mackenzie this new case proves an impossible riddle, something the likes of which she—and the local force—have ever seen.


With the FBI called in, together, an intense manhunt ensues. Mackenzie, reeling from her own dark past, her failed relationships, and her undeniable attraction to the new FBI agent, finds herself battling her own demons as her hunt for the killer takes her to the darkest places of her mind. As she delves into the killer’s mind, obsessing over his twisted psychology, she finds that evil truly does exist. She only hopes it will not be too late to extricate herself from it, as her entire life collapses around her.


As more bodies turn up dead and a frantic race against time ensues, there is no way out but to find him before he kills again.


A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, BEFORE HE KILLS marks the debut of a riveting new series—and a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night. 


Book #2 in the Mackenzie White Mystery series will be available soon.

Very intriguing

I really enjoyed this book.

Uncreative

This is the second book I've read by this author, the first I read was the first book in her Riley Paige series. Both books are riddled with typos, and have almost exactly the same storyline, just with different names and serial killers. Disappointing. The story is simplistic and unexciting.

Before He Kills was extremely interesting.

Detective White faced job discrimination and had to fight for her place as well as solve a crime. I read it straight through in 2 hours, needing to know her conclusions on this case. Unfortunately, the cold case was just loose information thrown in there but never connected to the story line. However, the ending was sensational.

There is a mistake in the entering the age of her mentor, saying he was a retired policeman who was 70 but looked 80. It notes the things he has done since retirement so his age should have been 80 in order to accomplish all that.
