Publisher's Summary

From #1 bestselling mystery author Blake Pierce comes a new masterpiece of psychological suspense.

A bundle of books: #1 (A Trace of Death), #2 (A Trace of Murder), and #3 (A Trace of Vice) in Blake Pierce’s Keri Locke Mystery series! This bundle offers books one, two, and three in one convenient bundle.

In A Trace of Death (A Keri Locke Mystery, Book 1), Keri Locke, Missing Persons Detective in the Homicide division of the LAPD, remains haunted by the abduction of her own daughter, years before, never found. Still obsessed with finding her, Keri buries her grief the only way she knows how: by throwing herself into the cases of missing persons in Los Angeles. A routine phone call from a worried mother of a high-schooler, only two hours missing, should be ignored. Yet something about the mother’s voice strikes a chord, and Keri decides to investigate. What she finds shocks her. The missing daughter - of a prominent senator - was hiding secrets no one knew. When all evidence points to a runaway, Keri is ordered off the case. And yet, despite pressure from her superiors, from the media, despite all trails going cold, the brilliant and obsessed Keri refuses to let it go. She knows she has but 48 hours if she has any chance of bringing this girl back alive.

In A Trace of Murder (A Keri Locke Mystery, Book 2), encouraged by the new lead that has landed, the first in years, Keri Locke pursues it with all that she has, determined to find her daughter and bring her back alive. Yet Keri, at the same time, receives a phone call from a frantic husband, a famed Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, who reports that his wife has been missing for two days. A wealthy socialite with no enemies and little reason to leave her life, he fears the worst has become of his wife. Keri takes on the case, assigned a new partner whom she hates, as Ray still recovers in the hospital. Her investigation leads her deep into the elite.

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 was who 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.

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 resisting to pause late into the night.

Love Blake Pierce

I recently found Blake Pierce as an author while searching for something to listen to at work. I've been so engrossed in his books and the voice of Elaine Wise for the last few days that time has flown by when it usually stands still

English accent? Unreasonable violence toward suspects.

Who selected an English accent for a story based in US? Perhaps the Inspector Linley series should be narrated by a US southern accent. Not a reasonable tale. But then I only made it through the first book. Lots of excitable lines. A little far fetched. I will be returning the bundle. I like to follow character development across multiple books in a series. Not interested in having the narrator for non- British stories have an British accent. It was hard to remember this was a US setting. I guess we could have a British accent in a detective working in a major city. But this character does not purport to be British. Not interested Dirty Harry like behavior from the lead female character. She adds to the portrayal of sly, hurtful, homicidal police. One positive is the language was at least non-swearing and without the f-word in every other utterance as some police/detective stories provide. Disappointed in this series.

Why the accent?

Love all her books but why the accent for American bred story lines? Plus Keri is not Bionic women .... no human could go through what she did in book 3 and keep going.

Love the story, the narration, not so much

I love a good who done it, especially on a long car trip. What I don’t like about this one is the choice to use a narrator with a British accent to narrate a story happening in California. The difference between English and American is enough to make this hard to listen to. We’re it not for the fact that the stories are SO engaging, I would have ditched this at the first misspoken word. Now I’m stuck looking for book four! Where is that #@&! kid!?

Narration

Stories were ok just not up to the others he’s written for me. Some of the problem may have been the narration. If you’re writing a story in California with Americans and/or Spanish you shouldn’t have a British narrator. Drove me nuts! Especially when she pronounced certain words incorrectly for American English. She’s a fine narrator but not for books centered in America.

narrator needs to have an American accent

Because the narrator has a British accent, it's hard to keep in mind that they are American characters. The voices just don't go with the characters but I love the story. alot of twists & turns.

repeated annoying theme in this author's books

Pierce repeats, with different main characters in his books, of young women, often coming from another career which they were forced to leave, becoming detectives while still quite young. Impulsive, disobeying clear instructions from superiors and behaving criminally and getting away with it!! should have been sacked and charged! not made out to be heroes
