From Blake Pierce, bestselling author of ONCE GONE (a #1 bestseller with over 600 five star reviews), comes book #3 in the heart-pounding Mackenzie White mystery series.

In BEFORE HE COVETS (A Mackenzie White Mystery—Book 3), newly minted FBI agent Mackenzie White graduates the FBI Academy in Quantico only to find herself thrown into an urgent serial killer case. Women are turning up dead while camping in a remote national park in West Virginia. Yet the park is vast, and no connection can be found between them.

At the same time, Mackenzie receives a call from Nebraska urging her to come home. After many years, a new clue has surfaced about her father’s murder. The case no longer cold, Mackenzie desperately needs to help solve it.

But the FBI’s killer is ratcheting up, and there is no time for distraction as more women turn up missing in the psychological game of cat-and-mouse that follows. This killer is more diabolical—and smarter—than Mackenzie could have imagined. As she goes down a road she fears to travel—deep into her own psyche—she finds a double twist waiting for her that even she could not expect.

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, BEFORE HE COVETS is book #3 in a riveting new series—with a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night. 

Book #4 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 with over 600 five star reviews on Amazon—and a free download!

  • Meh

    I really enjoyed the first book in the series and decided to read the second. I was a little underwhelmed but it was decent read. By the third book I’m really unimpressed. The main story line really doesn’t change just different names and locations. I get the main character chases serial killers but do they all have to kidnap, torture, hold captive and then kill. Not all killers kill the same but wouldn’t know that from this series.

    I just love this author! During quarantine here in Michigan I read books 1-5 in like a few days Mackenzie is quite the character. I am a very fast reader so once I get in to a book I just don’t want to put it down and I don’t

    Another good one by Blake. Some good characters and the lead person is certainly flawed. Some predictability but even what could be figured out still had a twist to it. Hoping she stops being so stupid by acting on her own. I’ll just have to read the next one to find out!
  • Love the books but..

    By dominiquebailey
    I love these books but while reading this I couldn't help but notice pages are missing. It will be in mid sentence and trail off to the next chapter.

    Great story! A lot of little stories within that makes it more interesting and hard to put down. Looking forward to next book
