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 mystery author Blake Pierce comes a new masterpiece of psychological suspense. 

In CAUSE TO RUN (An Avery Black Mystery—Book 2), a new serial killer is stalking Boston, killing his victims in bizarre ways, taunting the police with mysterious puzzles that reference the stars. As the stakes are upped and the pressure is on, the Boston Police Department is forced to call in its most brilliant—and most controversial—homicide detective: Avery Black.

Avery, still reeling from her last case, finds herself up against a rival precinct and a brilliant, cunning killer who is always one step ahead of her. She is forced to enter his dark, twisted mind as he lays clues for his next killing, and forced to look into places in her own mind she would rather not go. She finds herself compelled to seek the counsel of Howard Randall, the twisted serial killer she’d put behind bars years ago, all while her new burgeoning life with Rose and Ramirez is falling apart.

And just as things cannot get any worse, she finds out something else: she herself may be the target.

In a game of psychological cat and mouse, a frantic race against time leads Avery through a series of shocking and unexpected twists—culminating in climax that even Avery could not imagine. 

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, CAUSE TO RUN is book #2 of a riveting new series—with a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night. 

Book #3 in the Avery Black series will be available soon. 

“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)

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.

    Hollywood wanted to cast them as heavies. The Mafia wanted them dead. 
    'Action that's faster than a speeding bullet' 
    Bwana and Roger, U.S. Special Forces operatives, are vacationing in Hollywood when an agent offers to cast them as heavies. 
    They decline. They go up against real world criminals and terrorists; the make-believe world is of no interest to them. 
    However, when an A-lister hires them for their skills, they enter into the celebrity world. 
    It is also a world which the Mafia inhabit, and the gangsters don't like the operatives on their turf.  
    Before long, the glamorous facade drops and the ugly underbelly of Hollywood is revealed. One of assassins, porn rings, and murder. 
    Like a movie script however, there's a twist in the tale; one in which the good guys will not be the last men standing. 
    'Ty Patterson's thrillers should come with a health warning: Highly Addictive'
