Von der #1 Bestsellerautorin Blake Pierce erscheint nun eine spannende neue Krimireihe. In den Maisfeldern Nebraskas wird eine ermordete, an einen Holzbalken gebundene Frau gefunden, die zum Oper eines gestörten Mörders wurde. Die Polizei erkennt schnell, dass ein Serienkiller unterwegs ist – und dass seine Mordserie gerade erst begonnen hat. Detective Mackenzie White, jung, schlagfertig und kleiner als die alternden, chauvinistischen Männer ihrer Polizeiwache, wird mit der Aufklärung des Falles beauftragt. So ungern es die anderen Polizisten auch zugeben, sie brauchen ihren jungen und brillanten Verstand, der schon bei vielen Fällen die entscheidenden Impulse gegeben hat. Doch auch für Mackenzie erweist sich dieser Fall als unlösbares Rätsel, etwas, das weder sie noch die anderen Polizisten auf dem örtlichen Revier schon einmal erlebt haben. Als das FBI zur Hilfe gerufen wird, beginnt eine aufregende Verbrecherjagd. Mackenzie, die von ihrer eigenen Vergangenheit, ihrer gescheiterten Beziehung und ihrer unbestreitbaren Anziehung zu dem neuen FBI Agenten geplagt wird, muss gegen ihre eigenen Dämonen kämpfen, um den Mörder, der sie an die dunkelsten Ecken ihres Geistes bringt, zu jagen. Als sie sich in den Kopf des Mörders versetzt und sich intensiv mit seiner gestörten Psychologie auseinandersetzt, erkennt sie, dass es das Böse wirklich gibt. Sie hofft nur, dass sie sich noch rechtzeitig aus seiner Denkweise befreien kann, während ihr gesamtes Leben um sie herum einstürzt. Da immer mehr Leichen auftauchen, beginnt ein hektischer Wettkampf gegen die Zeit, der Täter muss gefasst werden, bevor er noch einmal zuschlagen kann. Als dunkler Psychothriller mit kaum auszuhaltender Spannung ist BEVOR ER TÖTET ein grandioses Debut einer fesselnden neuen Krimireihe – und eines neuen, liebenswerten Charakters – die Sie bis spät in die Nacht fesseln wird. Buch #2 der Mackenzie White Krimireihe wird bald verfügbar sein.

Dark Secrets. . . With a new identity, a new city to live in, and a wonderful new husband, Rachel Moore believes she's finally free of the demons in her past. But nothing could be farther from the truth. For the deadly secrets she thought were long-buried are now on the brink of being exposed. . . Have A Way. . . Someone has a vendetta against Rachel. Someone whom she betrayed a long time ago. Someone who is determined to make her pay--no matter the cost. . . Of Coming Back With A Vengeance. . . Now Rachel knows it's just a matter of time before her dangerous past meets up with her present--and destroys everything she's worked so hard for. Because if there's one thing that can be counted on--her enemy never forgets or forgives and will do whatever it takes to see Rachel suffer. . . Advance Praise for Don't Ever Tell "A taut, involving, and utterly convincing thrill ride." --Gregg Olsen, New York Times bestselling author "The talented Mr. Massey has the rare knack of grabbing the reader early and not letting go. In this relentlessly gripping novel the hold only gets tighter as the pages turn. Massey knows how to ratchet up the suspense. Tell everyone that Don't Ever Tell is a crackling good thriller." --John Lutz, New York Times bestselling author "Put the kids to bed, let the cat out, throw another log on the fire, you will not stop turning the pages of Brandon Massey's Don't Ever Tell until you've gobbled every last morsel. A diabolical rocket sled of a book, this story is deceptively simple, carefully crafted out of lean, mean prose; but the pay-off is shattering – a tour de force of psychological suspense. Old grudges, dark secrets, and a ticking time bomb of a villain add up to an irresistible read. Highly recommended." --Jay Bonansinga, National Bestselling Author of Shattered, Twisted, Frozen, and The Sinking Of The Eastland "A razor-sharp thriller guaranteed to keep you turning pages well into the night.
