FBI Agent Ella Dark has studied serial killers from the time she could read, devastated by the murder of her own sister, and has gained an encyclopedic knowledge of murderers. But when victims are found murdered in the Pacific Northwest, their bodies strung up high in the branches of Redwood trees, Ella finds everything she’s known to be put to the test. Is she wrong?
“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)
GIRL, TAKEN (An Ella Dark FBI Suspense Thriller) is book #2 in a long-anticipated new series by #1 bestseller and USA Today bestselling author Blake Pierce, whose bestseller Once Gone (a free download) has received over 1,000 five star reviews.

This time, though, Ella’s special talent seems to have disappeared.

More of the same but more
This was a much more enjoyable than book 1 and had a lot of flow in each episode.
Great story line. Way too many typos!!
I adore this writer and her great storytelling but this story just seemed so out of nowhere. In the first book I felt like Mia & Ella were really a team and this book took that a completely different direction and I really disliked that. While I enjoyed reading it and I wanted to keep reading it, there was a lot to it that made no sense. The story overall was okay, but the serial killers in this one were so out there and unbelievable it crossed the lines of fiction into ridiculous. I will read the next book in hopes it’s better than this one but so far this has been my least favorite by Blake Pierce.
