Summary

“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 author Blake Pierce comes a new masterpiece of psychological suspense—the AVERY BLACK SERIES—which continues here with CAUSE TO DREAD (Book #6), also a standalone novel.  The series begins with CAUSE TO KILL (Book #1)—a free download with over 200 five star reviews!

A woman turns up dead in her own apartment, locked in her closet, her body crawling with poisonous spiders, and the Boston police are stumped. As all of their leads collapse, they are  dreading the killer will strike again. Desperate, the police have no choice but to turn to Boston’s most brilliant and controversial homicide detective—Avery Black. Now retired, Avery, in a low point in her own life, reluctantly agrees to help with the case. But when other bodies start turning up, murdered in grotesque and unusual ways, Avery can’t help but wonder: is there a serial killer on the loose?

With the intense media pressure and the stress of having a new, inexperienced partner, Avery is pushed to her limit as she struggles to crack the bizarre cases—and to keep herself from falling into the abyss. 
Avery finds herself falling deeper and deeper into the twisted mind of the killer, who holds more secrets than Avery could imagine.

The most riveting and shocking book of the series, a psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, CAUSE TO DREAD will leave you turning pages late into the night. 

“A masterpiece of thriller and mystery. Pierce did a magnificent job developing characters with a psychological side, so well described that we feel inside their minds, follow their fears and cheer for their success. The plot is very intelligent and will keep you entertained throughout the book. Full of twists, this book will keep you awake until the turn of the last page.” 
--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re Once Gone)

    Sailing to Havana, Mr. and Mrs. North find their vacation dogged by death Stepping out of her stateroom, Pamela North is rather disappointed to see a man with a sword. She had hoped this cruise would be a respite from murder, mayhem, and crime, and she finds pirates to be dreary. As it happens, she’s wrong on all counts. The man with the sword is no pirate, and this trip will not offer an escape from death.   As the ship embarks on an eight-day voyage to Havana and Nassau, the Norths will find the sword-bearing gentleman is far from the strangest passenger onboard. The Carib Queen transports daiquiri-swilling dowagers, a bizarre private detective, and at least one jewel thief. And when one of their fellow passengers is found with a sword buried in his chest, Pamela and Jerry must find the killer—or risk spoiling their entire vacation.  A Voyage into Violence is the 21st book in the Mr. and Mrs. North Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    A gripping, inventive thriller about justice and retribution set in Paris thirty years after World War II   Anna Martin is ready to put the past—and her unsuccessful marriage—behind her and start over with Nicholas Yurovsky. A titled aristocrat from a distinguished family that dates back to czarist Russia, Nicholas never talks about his past. Then Anna gets a call from her ex-husband.   Left-wing journalist Paul Martin warns Anna about a plot spearheaded by Nicholas to avenge the murder of his father. But Nicholas isn’t the only one with a score to settle. He and other members of “the Return” have been quietly gathering their forces, preparing to strike out against the man who condemned hundreds of thousands of Russians to life—and death—in labor camps.   An elite member of the Supreme Soviet who could be Russia’s next president, Grigor Malenkov buried his past along with countless victims. At the invitation of the French president, he is coming to Paris, where the children of the dead wait for justice that has been a long time coming—with one innocent woman in the crossfire.
