LEFT TO LAPSE is book #7 in a new FBI thriller series by USA Today bestselling author Blake Pierce, whose #1 bestseller Once Gone (Book #1) (a free download) has received over 1,000 five star reviews. 

When a body turns up on a high-speed train passing through France, Germany and Italy—clearly the work of a serial killer—authorities wonder: whose jurisdiction is it?

FBI Special Agent Adele Sharp—triple agent of the U.S., France and Germany—is called in as the only one capable of maneuvering the layers of authority and of tapping her brilliant mind to stop the killer.

But as more victims turn up—on other trains, in other countries—the case grows increasingly complex. Can this all be the work of one serial killer?

And if so, where will he strike next?

An action-packed mystery series of international intrigue and riveting suspense, LEFT TO LAPSE will have you turning pages late into the night.

Books #8-#10 in the series are now also available!

    Suspenseful, exciting and nerves on edge. Looking for the killer has you turning the pages to see who done it. Such a great read I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
  • Might be the best of the series

    This book didn’t excite me as much as others from Pierce. I’m not sure if the general setting was the turnoff or the characters seeming more subdued, but it lacked the wow factors I enjoyed from previous novels.
