Pretty good!This book was honestly quite fascinating. I’m not sure what I was expecting but it wasn’t disappointing! I will admit, it didn’t draw me in as much as other murder mystery books do, but it was still quite amazing! Some spelling and grammar errors here and there and rambling a little too much sometimes was what prevented me from fully being drawn into the story but I would still certainly recommend it! Great job!.Score: 4/5

Cliffhanger Extraordinaire - Her Last WishLove the characters + their interactions, the storyline, law enforcement expertise and writing style. I’m hooked on this author, Blake Pierce. I have purchased several of his sequels after first reading a “freebie,” even though I don’t usually abide by sloppy editing. Rating would be five stars if proofreading were better. Sorry to be the Grammar Gestapo, but it’s insulting to the reader to have sooo many errors. Plus it shows a lack of pride in his own work. Ann E. Israelson.Score: 4/5

HorribleI have no idea where these great reviews come from. This is horrible on so many levels. I would’ve been upset if I had paid for this. I couldn’t finish it. It reads as if a ten year old wrote it and that ten year old wrote about two other ten year olds playing pretend FBI Agents but not quite knowing what an FBI Agent is. Combine that immature writing with the obvious lack of research and the amount of missing words and it gets beyond frustrating..Score: 1/5

Girl GoneGood book with obvious flaws but an enjoyable read. To believe a town police force wouldn’t have enough cops to assist an FBI chasing a serial killer letting her go alone defies police procedures. Then after the security guard was murdered, Dark says at least no one died here tonight?!! Oops. Did he not count. Leaving the rookie in the house while all the other cops ran after ?? He was still in the house so who were they chasing. Why did she let the serial killer , once apprehended get so close to her? She ordered him on his knees hands on head. Next he hits her with the oak limb. I really like this author but a bit more attention to small details could’ve really made this a top notch thriller..Score: 5/5

BlahI generally don’t like to stop reading mid way through a book but couldn’t stomach any more of this past about the halfway point. Just seems so cliched and boring and uninspired. Somewhat interesting idea for a killer but rest is just standard fare done way better most everywhere else. Can’t believe this is book one of like 6 or more. Will not be reading any further and I’m going so far as to delete the copy of book one I purchased, I disliked this so much I’ve bought about 2-3 books a month for years on iBooks and sadly only ever have made one other review I think and that was for a terrible read also. I don’t expect people to listen to my opinion on what’s great but hope I can help anybody from wasting time on drivel like this when there’s so much great stuff out there.Score: 1/5

A Female Heroine Book Worth ReadingI am not sure if the author is female or male. The use of all female main characters makes me lean towards the author being female. Unlike many others, this book is easy to read and enjoy. While the main characters are very capable, they are not built to be totally unbelievable or obnoxiously feminist. The book has a compressed time line. It does it without the reader feeling overwhelmed or annoyed. I found I was keen to pick it up to continue reading the story..Score: 4/5

It was free1.5 stars The author is American and has churned out at least 6 series of thrillers involving female protagonists with names like Avery, Riley, and Mackenzie. This represents of the start of yet another series involving rookie FBI agent Ella Dark. In brief Our gal had a bad childhood and has studied serial killers all her life, not because she wants to be one but because she wants to catch those suckers. She gets sidelined into clerical /research jobs in law enforcement until one day, one evening in fact, the (male) director of the behavioural unit plucks her from obscurity to look into a fresh case of female dismemberment down in Louisiana. The thing that distinguishes Ella’s elevation from that of another Southern gal from a broken home named Clarice, is that she’s paired up with an experienced female agent, not a male one, in this instance a cynical fifty-something, hard drinking, yet extremely fit looking gal named something or other, who says there’s nothing to indicate a serial killer apart from all the bodies that keep showing up. (A significant factor, I would have thought, but hey, what would I know? I’m no detective, just an old white guy.) Our gal sees the pattern though. The killer is restaging the modus operandi of other North American serial killers, some better known than others, all the while building to his piece de resistance: Bundyland. Can she stop him in time? Writing Better edited than the previous effort I read by Ms Pierce but the same breathless, high school writer style, riddled with plot and character inconsistencies. Bottom line I read it because it was free, okay? An extra half star for the concise summaries of how the various serial killers did their thang, which saved me having to go to Wikipedia. Judging by the number of positive reviews of this, and the author’s many other books, on Goodreads, other people feel differently to me..Score: 2/5
