--Midwest Book Review, Diane Donovan (regarding Once Gone)
From #1 bestselling mystery author Blake Pierce comes a new masterpiece of psychological suspense.
A bundle of books #4 (A TRACE OF CRIME) and #5 (A TRACE OF HOPE) in Blake Pierce's Keri Locke Mystery series! This bundle offers books four and five in one convenient file, with over 120,000 words of reading.
In A TRACE OF CRIME (A Keri Locke Mystery—Book 4), Keri Locke, Missing Persons Detective in the Homicide division of the LAPD, follows a fresh lead for her abducted daughter. She winds her way through a twisted underworld, and step by step, she gets closer to finding her daughter. Yet she has no time. Keri is assigned a new case: a dad calls from an affluent community and reports that his teen daughter vanished on the way home from school. Shortly after, ransom letters arrive. Twisted, filled with riddles, they make it clear that there is little time to save the girl. They also make it clear that this is the work of a diabolical killer who is toying with them. Keri and the police must scramble to find the kidnapper, to understand his demands, to decode the letters, and most of all, to outwit him. But in this master game of chess, Keri may find herself up against a foe even she cannot understand, and for the missing girl—and her own daughter—she may just be too late.
In A TRACE OF HOPE (Book #5 in the Keri Locke mystery series), Keri Locke is closer than she's ever been to finding her daughter. Finally, she gets a fresh lead—and this time, she will do whatever it takes to bring her home alive. At the same time, a new, urgent case is assigned to Keri: an 18 year old girl has gone missing after being hazed by her sorority. As the race is on to find her, Keri plunges deep into the world of pristine college campuses, and comes to realize that all is not what it seems.
Dark psychological thrillers with heart-pounding suspense, the KERI LOCKE MYSTERY series is a riveting new series—with a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.
