New Release Alert - Once Taken by Blake Pierce

I got the biggest surprise when I opened up Amazon and found this little baby there waiting for me. I wasn't expecting this to be released until the 28th February but it showed up on the 14th as the perfect little Valentines Day present. Even though I don't like to read two crime books in a row i'm tempted to read this next because I loved Riley Paige in Once Gone. If you haven't already be sure to go and pick up Once Gone from Amazon especially while it's still free! Apparently Once Taken is going to take us on a journey through orphanages, mental hospitals and prisons so you just know that this is going be perfect for me. I also hope that the whole former serial killer story line will be resolved in this book cos I hate when minor stories drag over books especially when it was already such a minor part of the story in the previous book.

Goodreads Synopsis
Women are being murdered in upstate New York, their bodies found mysteriously hanging in chains. With the FBI called in, given the bizarre nature of the murders—and the lack of any clues—there is only one agent they can turn to: Special Agent Riley Paige. 

Riley, reeling from her last case, is reluctant to take on a new one, since she is still convinced a former serial killer is out there, stalking her. She knows, though, that her ability to enter a serial killer’s mind and her obsessive nature is what will be needed to crack this case, and she just can’t refuse—even if it will push her over the edge. 

Riley’s search takes her deep into a killer’s deluded mind as it leads her to orphanages, mental hospitals, prisons, all in an effort to understand the depth of his psychosis. Realizing she is up against a true psychopath, she knows time is short before he strikes again. But with her own job on the line and her own family a target, and with her fragile psyche collapsing, it may all be too much for her—and too late.
