Girl, Vanished (An Ella Dark FBI Suspense Thriller—Book 5)
FBI Special 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. When victims are found murdered, their bodies left mysteriously with coins on their eyes, Ella draws on her knowledge, and quickly realizes that this killer is as methodical, ritualistic and as obsessive as she is. Worse: he is unlike any killer Ella has ever studied.
“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 #6-#11 are also available!
I have read nearly 80 books by Blake Pierce. Blake writes them so quickly, it’s understandable when they have something of a formula to them. Even so, I like and appreciate all of her characters. Each leading lady has one or more ionteresting quirks which mandate elements of the story, but the quirks are so interesting and so helpful in the pursuit of the culprits that, for me, they hold interest quite well, and I look forward to how the protagonist uses her gifts to prosecute the next investigation.
Vanished .. eventually
I love the relationship with Ella & Mia. This novel kept them at bay, and I found it a bit challenging to get through the case. From my lens, the interaction, friction and frustration as Dark & Mia grow in relationship keeps me invested.
Keep ‘em coming
One of my favorites in this series. Other than a few typos, it had me hooked in.
