ONCE FORSAKEN is book #7 in the bestselling Riley Paige mystery series, which begins with the #1 bestseller ONCE GONE (Book #1)—a free download with over 700 five star reviews! 

When Special Agent Riley Paige finally decides to take a well-needed rest from the FBI, a request for help comes from the most unlikely source: her own daughter. April’s best friend is devastated by the death of her sister, a freshman at Georgetown. Worse, she is convinced that the suicide was staged, and that her sister was murdered at the hands of a serial killer.

Riley reluctantly looks into the case, only to discover that two other freshman girls at Georgetown recently killed themselves in the same grotesque way—by hanging. As she realizes foul play may be afoot, she brings in the FBI. The case takes Riley deep into the privileged campus of one of the world’s most esteemed universities, into the unsettling world of the wealthy and driven families that pushed their children to succeed. In time she discovers that this case is far more twisted than it seems—and that she just may be up against the most psychotic killer of her career. 

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, ONCE FORSAKEN is book #7 in a riveting new series—with a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night. 

Book #8 in the Riley Paige series will be available soon.

    “An entertaining and fast read, making you want to read more.” 
    –My Train of Thoughts 
     
    There’s no time for a vote… 
     
    Sean and Sara’s popularity as a murder-solving duo has gained momentum since they retired from the Albany PD. But it’s not until a local television interview in which they meet Reanne Mable that they end up finding themselves involved with a truly high-profile investigation. 
     
    Reanne is the sister-in-law of Albany’s Mayor Davenport, and his daughter, Halie, has gone missing from her university campus. With his desire to keep the matter out of the media spotlight, Davenport turns to Sean and Sara to find her. But with the police already investigating the matter, taking this case would pit them against their friends from the police department, including their former sergeant Jimmy Voigt. 
     
    As time goes on, though, the fate of the girl is not up for debate, and the McKinleys set out to discover what really happened. With the mayor taking the heat for a recently passed zoning bylaw, maybe an enraged small-business owner is behind Halie’s disappearance. Or did she simply grow tired of living in her father’s limelight and run away? 
     
    To get the answers, Sean and Sara will need to use all the resources at their disposal and may have to call upon their good friend Jimmy for help.

    ‘The
    window’s lead is melting, its glass is bowing out. Within the plaster walls,
    horsehairs crisp in filaments of fire. Soon there is nothing left within the
    room. Wood. Wool. Flesh. Even metal. Gone. So now, like any living thing, flame
    has a choice:
    
     
    Feed
    or die. 
    
     
    Across the threshold, a city sleeps.’
    
     
    WHY SHOULDN’T
    GOD’S VENGEANCE BE SPECTACULAR? 
    
     
    1666. The Great Plague, that killed 100,000
    citizens, has passed. Londoners celebrate survival in different ways. Some with
    praising God. Many, including the Merry Monarch and his court, with sin. They
    drink. They gamble. They indulge in carnal delights.  
    
     
    While others…
    
     
     
    
     
    666 is the number of the Beast, this the
    year foretold when Christ will return. To slay the Devil. To bring the New Jerusalem.
    A gang of fanatics – the Saints -  choose
    to hasten that prophesied day. They will kidnap, rape, murder. Above all, they
    will kill a king. For in the renegade Captain Blood they have the perfect assassin.
    
     
    Two men - the highwayman William Coke and
    the thief-taker Pitman - are recruited to stop them. Both fall victim to the
    Saint’s foul plots. All seems lost…  
    
     
     
    
     
    Yet in the early hours of September 2nd,
    1666, something starts that will overtake them all – fanatics, princes,
    soldiers and fops, actresses and holy murderers. For the year of the Beast is
    three quarters done and the Devil has not yet had his due. 
    
     
     London’s a tinder box. Politically,
    sexually, religiously. Literally. It is about to burn. 
    
    	
    		
    		
    	
    	
    		
    			
    				
    					
    						 
    ‘The brilliance of Fire is that while the villains and their motives
    are known, the rest of the plot is slowly revealed in an engrossing
    thriller that shifts from a riverside theatre to the cramped confines of
    a 17th-century warship and finally to the congested parishes of
    London.’ - Macleans Magazine
