“A dynamic story line that grips from the first chapter and doesn't let go.”
--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 #3 (A TRACE OF VICE) and #4 (A TRACE OF CRIME) in Blake Pierce’s Keri Locke Mystery series! This bundle offers books three and four in one convenient file, with over 120,000 words of reading.
In A TRACE OF VICE (A Keri Locke Mystery—Book 3), Keri Locke, Missing Persons Detective in the Homicide division of the LAPD, follows a fresh lead for her abducted daughter. It leads to a violent confrontation with The Collector—which, in turn, offers more clues that may, after all this time, reunite her with her daughter. Yet at the same time, Keri is assigned a new case, one with a frantic ticking clock. A teenage girl has gone missing in Los Angeles, a girl from a good family who was duped into drugs and abducted into a sex trafficking ring. Keri is hot on her trail—but the trail is moving fast, with the girl being constantly moved and with her abductors’ single, nefarious goal: to cross her over the border with Mexico.
In A TRACE OF CRIME (A Keri Locke Mystery—Book 4), Keri Locke 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.
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.
Book #5 in the Keri Locke series will be available soon.
