“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) 

IF SHE KNEW (A Kate Wise Mystery) is book #1 in a new psychological thriller series by bestselling author Blake Pierce, whose #1 bestseller Once Gone (Book #1) (a free download) has received over 1,000 five star reviews. 

55 year old empty nester—and freshly retired FBI agent—Kate Wise finds herself drawn out of her quiet suburban life when her friend’s daughter is murdered in a home invasion—and she is implored to help.

Kate thought she left the FBI behind after 30 years as their top agent, respected for her brilliant mind, tough street skills and her uncanny ability to hunt down serial killers. Yet Kate, bored with the quiet town, at a crossroads in life, is summoned by a friend she can’t turn down.

As Kate hunts the killer, she soon finds herself at the forefront of a manhunt, as more bodies turn up—all suburban moms in perfect marriages—and it becomes apparent there is a serial killer stalking this quiet town. She unearths secrets from her neighbors she wishes she never knew, discovering that all is not what it seems in this picture of model streets and neighbors. Affairs and lying are rampant, and Kate must sift through the town’s underbelly if she will stop the killer from striking again.

But this killer is one step ahead of her, and it may end up being Kate who is in danger.

An action-packed thriller with heart-pounding suspense, IF SHE KNEW is book #1 in a riveting new series that will leave you turning pages late into the night. 

Book #2 in the KATE WISE MYSTERY series is available for pre-order!

If She Knew (A Kate Wise Mystery—Book 1) (Blake Pierce) Book Reviews

Darned goodFast reading. Great characters. No foul language or sex if you are looking for an exciting clean murder mystery. Did not guess the killer..Score: 5/5

Worth the readI enjoyed the characters and the story line. It was simple but not dragging so read in one shot. There were several typos which I find distracting but I otherwise enjoyed it..Score: 4/5

Solid bookI enjoyed reading this book for many reasons, two of which considering it was free and intriguing. Nonetheless, I was let down by the number of misspelled words throughout the book. Not sure how it was published/released without this being addressed..Score: 4/5

If she knewI really enjoyed this book in Blake Pierce’s Kate Wise series. I Iiked Kate’s pondering as she looks on her life, current and past. I think his partnering of Kate and DeMarco, was well written. It showed the invaluable benefit gained by each character; the experienced Kate and the just beginning DeMarco. I plan to read the rest of this series as well as others written by Blake Pierce..Score: 5/5

Could not get through this bookI found this book to be repetitive, boring, and to have a completely self absorbed main character. It is hard to believe the author has published so many novels with such weak and uninteresting plots. The book was so bad I gave up only a quarter of the way through and am sorry I devoted any time to it at all. What a snooze..Score: 1/5

Fan-friggen-tastic bookI read thin in the small window of five hours. Altho it would have been cooler if Kate wize was the student instead of the teacher, you know, Learning about how to slice crimes and all, but it was still fantastic. It was a tiny bit repetitive, but it was pretty darn good..Score: 5/5

New series will be thrillingBlake Pierce has created another believable character, Kate Wise. This first book should lead the way for a thrilling series. While Kate is smart and strong she second guesses herself at times when she should be sure. I liked the pairing of the two females and look forward to see what they solve next. They compliment each other..Score: 5/5

I couldn’t put it down.Good read, went through it in 3 days. Keeps you on your toes and is interesting. I would give a 4/5 star if the book hadn’t had so many typos and there hadn’t been a hole towards the end that didn’t line up about the solving of the murder. Also, it bugged me that they only ever interviewed neighbors once rather than surrounding neighbors of all the cases. Just didn’t make sense. Maybe I’m too technical, but just felt somethings were left out that made me disconnect from the story and to make me not fully dive in..Score: 4/5

Not to my tasteI downloaded this book for free a while ago and only came round reading it recently. I’m very glad I didn’t spend a single penny for it. Nothing works for me in this book. The story doesn’t make much sense and is very unbelievable. The side stories with the main character are pointless and doesn’t even contribute to bring her some personality. Reading this book I’ve learned I should stay away from very profilic authors such as this one publishing a book every couple of months..Score: 2/5
