FBI special agent Adele Sharp is a German-and-French raised American with triple citizenship—and an invaluable asset in bringing criminals to justice as they cross American and European borders.
When a serial killer case spanning three U.S. states goes cold, Adele returns to San Francisco and to the man she hopes to marry. But after a shocking twist, a new lead surfaces and Adele is dispatched to Paris, to lead an international manhunt.
Adele returns to the Europe of her childhood, where familiar Parisian streets, old friends from the DGSI and her estranged father reignite her dormant obsession with solving her own mother’s murder. All the while she must hunt down the diabolical killer, must enter the dark canals of his psychotic mind to know where he will strike next—and save the next victim before it’s too late.

Another unique suspenseful read from Blake!Another unique suspenseful read from Blake! Adele is an FBI agent with a unique background as she holds citizenship in the US, France, and Germany. As she tracks a killer in the US, she finds out that he has actually fled the country after her getting close to finding him and since she has citizenship in France, she follows him there. In France, she reconnects with her old employer and the life she abruptly left back there, and joins forces with them to take the killer down. Then, as she closes in on him again, he flees to Germany, where Adele again has the advantage of having citizenship, and follows him again. The premise and execution of this was a little strange to me, but overall I followed along the storyline. Something I wish that we had gotten more information on though is what happened to Adele’s mother and the reason for her abrupt and unpleasant departure from France. Hoping to find out in the coming books! I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book..Score: 3/5

Really goodThis was a great suspenseful thriller. This is book 1 of An Adele Sharp Mystery series. This is a very well written book with well-developed characters. The story pulled me in from the start and kept me hooked to the end. Blake Pierce is a great author and I’m looking forward to reading the next book. I recommend reading.

Mediocre writing and disjointedThis book started out seemingly like it would be terrific. The storyline was unfortunately quite undeveloped and then just painful with connections made too quickly that simply did not seem plausible. This Blake Pierce was a real miss..Score: 2/5

Left To Die - should haveI am a big fan of Blake Pierce but I won’t bother with this series. Too much blah, blah, blah. I flipped through pages of mundane blather that had nothing to do with solving the murders. It took forever to get to the grit of the story. I suppose the writer was introducing his new characters. I didn’t like any of them actually. I didn’t warm up to them. And the bouncing back and forth between languages was annoying..Score: 1/5

Left To DieSilly beyond measure.Score: 1/5
A new SeriesThe book is riveting and different from his normal stories that author Blake has written. The storyline is based on an International killer and it requires a FBI agent who can speak fluently the required languages to solve the murders. Adele must face her past in order to solve the mystery. I certainly look forward to the sequels to this first book based o. Adele Sharp. I received the book free and the review is of my own thoughts and reactions..Score: 5/5
Could be much better.Overall the plot is fine but the characters are underdeveloped with limited or no backstory - especially the antagonist. The lack of depth makes it difficult to connect with the characters. The ‘workings’ of some of the investigations did not feel authentic or believable (why was the only surviving victim not a main focus? And why wouldn’t you request more backup when you know you are in pursuit of a murderer alone?) There are also many ‘page-fillers’ that seem to drag on while contributing very little to the actual story. Could do with more editing and spell check. It is the first book in this series, perhaps the others get better..Score: 2/5
Excellent readLiked the flirting agent Dark had with her French work partner and the suspense when the killer was about to kill.Score: 4/5
I’m strugglingFinding it a bit confusing. Very different to Blake’s other work. Figuring out the different French police systems is one thing but it’s made so much harder when calling one of the characters 3 different names; John, Renee and Agent Renee. And I’m still unsure as to why the other French agent lady was in the cafe during the interview with Marions friends? I couldn’t follow that either. I have read and adored every other series from Blake, i recommend all of her work to anyone I meet that enjoys reading, and I was so looking forward to this new series. Hopefully book 2 is easier to follow..Score: 3/5
