A bundle of books #1 (NOT LIKE US) and #2 (NOT LIKE HE SEEMED) in Ava Strong’s Ilse Beck FBI Suspense Thriller series! This bundle offers books one and two in one convenient file, with over 100,000 words of reading.

In this bestselling mystery series, FBI Special Agent Ilse Beck, victim of a traumatic childhood in Germany, moved to the U.S. to become a renowned psychologist specializing in PTSD, and the world’s leading expert in the unique trauma of serial-killer survivors. By studying the psychology of their survivors, Ilse has a unique and unparalleled expertise in the true psychology of serial killers. Ilse never expected, though, to become an FBI agent herself.

In NOT LIKE US (Book #1), nothing can prepare Ilse for her new patient, a survivor from a near murder by a serial killer. She barely escaped a serial killer in the Pacific Northwest—and now, he is hunting her again. Or is he? Ilse Beck, a niche expert in serial killer survivors, has faced many monsters, and seen shocking cases—but this one may be the worst of all. The patient, paranoid, believes she is still being watched by the killer. And when the killer claims a new victim, the FBI needs Ilse’s help to solve it. This case and this killer, though, strike too close to home for Ilse’s comfort. When she realizes that she herself is being targeted, the trauma of her own past comes full circle. Can Ilse use her brilliant instincts to enter the mind of this killer and stop him before he strikes again? And will she save herself? 

In NOT LIKE HE SEEMED (Book #2), the FBI desperately needs Ilse’s help to catch the “Alphabet Killer”—an unhinged serial killer who seems to be arranging his victims’ bodies in the shapes of letters. Is he spelling a word? Or hinting at who will be next? Ilse, plagued by her own past, realizes the time has come to face her demons and revisit the site of her childhood home in Germany. But will the trip help her expunge her own dark memories—or push her over the edge? But in a frantic race against time, the FBI needs her to decode the Alphabet Killer. Is there a method to his madness, a way to stop the next victim before it’s too late? Or is this killer far more cunning and deranged than anyone could imagine?

A dark and suspenseful crime thriller, the bestselling ILSE BECK series is a breathtaking page-turner, an unputdownable mystery and suspense novel. A compelling and perplexing psychological thriller, rife with twists and jaw-dropping secrets, it will make you fall in love with a brilliant new female protagonist, while it keeps you shocked late into the night.

Books #3 and #4 in the series—NOT LIKE YESTERDAY and NOT LIKE THIS—are also available.
