Cause to Kill (An Avery Black Mystery—Book 1) Book Summary

“A dynamic story line that grips from the first chapter and doesn't let go.” 
--Midwest Book Review, Diane Donovan (regarding Once Gone) 

From #1 bestselling mystery author Blake Pierce comes a new masterpiece of psychological suspense.

Homicide Detective Avery Black has been through hell. Once a top criminal defense attorney, she fell from grace when she managed to get a brilliant Harvard professor off—only to watch him kill again. She lost her husband and her daughter, and her life fell apart around her.

Trying to redeem herself, Avery has turned to the other side of the law. Working her way up the ranks, she has reached Homicide Detective, to the scorn of her fellow officers, who still remember what she did, and who will always hate her.

Yet even they cannot deny Avery’s brilliant mind, and when a disturbing serial killer strikes fear into the heart of Boston, killing girls from elite colleges, it is Avery that they turn to. It is Avery’s chance to prove herself, to finally find the redemption she craves. And yet, as she is soon to find out, Avery has come up against a killer as brilliant and daring as she.

In this game of psychological cat and mouse, women are dying with mysterious clues, and the stakes could not be higher. A frantic race against time leads Avery through a series of shocking and unexpected twists—culminating in climax that even Avery could not imagine. 

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, CAUSE TO KILL 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 Avery Black series will be available soon.

“A masterpiece of thriller and mystery. 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. 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)

    A decent book and plot. Just had some difficulty with the unrealistic "history" of the main character.

    Fast paced. Hard to stop reading. All characters well developed. Easy to identify with protagonist & understand her driven personality. Exciting to the end.

    After reading the first chapter I knew that I couldn't let my hands off of this book. I'm happy to say that I finished this book less than one week which is very rare that I finish reading a book in such a short period of time but this book was the best that I have read in the past couple of years. I'm now moving to book #2

    The story started with a bang. An interesting murder story until the Fword were frequent. No thank you.

  • Cause To Kill Book 1

    By Proctorasshole
    A riveting account of a Detective trying to solve problems surrounding a series of deadlock leads and the monsters identity behind the serial killings. With my hot popcorn I was in my bed reading with a nightlight and at times my heart was pounding just thinking how real evil lurks in every town all around us everyday. Can't wait to begin the next book KSW

    Decent read, easy and took me a day to read through. All the detectives in the 3 series are so similar and therefore, predictable. Also, did the editor change? The grammar and spelling mistakes in this book are horrible. The others from this author I have read didn't have that problem.
  • Amazing
