Description

FBI Agent Ella Dark has studied serial killers from the time she could read, devastated by the murder of her own sister. With her photographic memory, she has obtained an encyclopedic knowledge of every serial killer, every victim and every case. But when a serial killer strikes in the swamps of Louisiana, Ella soon comes to learn that the real thing is like nothing she ever expected.

“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)

FBI Agent Ella Dark, 29, is given her big chance to achieve her life’s dream: to join the Behavioral Crimes Unit. Ella’s hidden obsession of gaining an encyclopedic knowledge of serial killers has led to her being singled out for her brilliant mind, and invited to join the big leagues.

But face to face with a real murder, a real killer, and a real ticking clock, Ella realizes she can’t rely on her knowledge. She must learn to trust her instinct, and allow herself to enter the dark canals of a real killer’s mind.

If she gets it wrong, her career is at stake.

And so is the next victim’s life.


Will Ella’s talent be an asset?

Or the source of her downfall?

A page-turning and harrowing crime thriller featuring a brilliant and tortured FBI agent, the ELLA DARK series is a riveting mystery, packed with suspense, twists and turns, revelations, and driven by a breakneck pace that will keep you flipping pages late into the night.

  • Horrible

    I 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.
  • Highly recommend

    Throughly enjoyed reading this book. I liked how it was showing that Ella was learning and wasn’t just a know it all from the beginning. I want to be an FBI Profiler so this also helped me learn some things. I will be continuing reading this series!!

    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!

    Amateurish writing, misused words, trite phrasing. This is so bad on so many levels. Laughably sophomoric. Glad it was free.
  • Great Book

    This book was very intriguing and one I wound recommend. There are some writing errors that could have been fixed before publishing.

    Captivating and thrilling. I became connected to Dark and her story. Our “fascination” with serial killers joined us from the start.
  • Really good and easy to read
