Publisher's Summary

A bundle of books #1 (ONCE GONE) and #2 (ONCE TAKEN) in Blake Pierce’s Riley Paige Mystery series—a #1 bestseller with over 400 five star reviews! This bundle offers books one and two in one convenient file, with over 100,000 words of reading.

In ONCE GONE, women are turning up dead in the rural outskirts of Virginia, killed in grotesque ways, and when the FBI is called in, they are stumped. A serial killer is out there, his frequency increasing, and they know there is only one agent good enough to crack this case: Special Agent Riley Paige. Riley is on paid leave herself, recovering from her encounter with her last serial killer, and, fragile as she is, the FBI is reluctant to tap her brilliant mind. Yet Riley, needing to battle her own demons, comes on board, and her hunt leads her through the disturbing subculture of doll collectors, into the homes of broken families, and into the darkest canals of the killer’s mind. As Riley peels back the layers, she realizes she is up against a killer more twisted than she could have imagined.

In ONCE TAKEN, 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.

Dark psychological thrillers with heart-pounding suspense, the Riley Paige mysteries are a riveting new series—with a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.

Book #3 in the series, ONCE CRAVED, is now also available.

Cliches and boring characters

i bought this book as a bundle. The only reason I finished the first in the bundle was because the narrator is outstanding. The story is poorly written with characters stumbling from situation to implausible situation. I can't believe a disgraced FBI agent gets away with shooting a door lock off a mobile home and arresting a guy with no more proof than owning certain objects key to the story. I will not be completing book #2. Yuck.
