Before He Kills (A Mackenzie White Mystery—Book 1) Book Summary

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. 

Also available by Blake Pierce is ONCE GONE (A Riley Paige mystery—Book #1), a #1 bestseller!

Before He Kills (A Mackenzie White Mystery—Book 1) - Blake Pierce Reviews

  • Before He Sees

    By jgriffith58
    I enjoyed this book a great deal and read it quickly. However, I was distracted by misspellings and grammatical errors throughout the book. Why don't editors catch these blatant mistakes?
  • Before he kills

    By Dix252
    Very good thriller. I like your style very much.
  • Before he kills

    By KatoII
    Good story, but the author goes through so much trouble to write a great scene and then you lose your mental picture with all the typo's. Truly sad. SPOILER ALERT FOLLOWS!!! Also, some descriptions of what the last victim was wearing, changed while she was incapacitated! Also with her mobility. SPOILER ALERT DONE!! Makes it hard to follow the scenes as written. Again, you lose your mental picture of what the author worked so hard to create. With a good and thorough editing this would be a great book.

  • Good

    By KBŁ
    This book is a good book except for the language and the sexual talk. I really enjoyed this mystery. It would be amazing if there weren't as many cuss words and talk about sex.
  • Need a new editor

    By Little Lauren Lu
    Does anyone read this book before it is printed. So many errors. Mainly missing words. Made me think nobody really cared about this book so why should I bother reading it.
  • Before he kills

    By Jesptrsn
    This book leaves you wanting to find out more about the motive of the killer. I enjoyed the fact that it shows the truth about how hard a (society considered) beautiful woman has to struggle to prove she is more than a pretty face. I am going to read the rest of the series and hope that the series continues.

    Good thing this was cheap. Not very well written. Has a number of typos and grammatical errors. Trite dialog and narrative. Plot moves fast and my interest was maintained. Not an author I will continue to follow.
  • Great characters but with some flaws

    By GuamOcean05
    The characters are somewhat likable. There were a lot of misspelled words and missing verbs. The story is wonderfully written in the beginning and middle but felt rushed in the end. I felt the main character wouldn't have made such a rush to judgement in the end that could of gotten her killed. The writer didn't explain about the old cold case murder that was similar to the current case we know he killed before because the killer mentioned it early in the book why didn't Mackenzie research that old cold case who was the woman who got killed I could of sworn that detail was going to give them a huge lead once she researched it but she never did they just completely forget about. It would of been a great plot if his first murder was his mother but that was left unanswered. Overall I do like the book and I will be reading the next one in the series hopefully the 2nd book is better then the 1st book.
