Summary

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 a frantic race against time, she finds herself pushed to her limit, her job on the line, her own family in danger, and her fragile psyche collapsing.

Yet once Riley Paige takes on a case, she will not quit. It obsesses her, leading her to the darkest corners of her own mind, blurring the lines between hunter and hunted. After a series of unexpected twists, her instincts lead her to a shocking climax that even Riley could not have imagined.

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, ONCE GONE marks the debut of a riveting new series—and a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.

Book #2 in the Riley Paige series will be available soon.

Another excellent read and please excuse me for saying thank you, thank you, thank you too many times.” Ava, Kalamazoo, MI

If she is a real person, I wish her and her children the best in whatever that do down the road. Thank you very much Olivia for another great lesbian romance story. Bravo!” Violet, Nashville, TN 
    “Hi Olivia. You just out did yourself with this one. I have been wondering about Harriet through this whole series and I have had so many questions. Harriet is just the best billionaire ever. I don´t know any, but she really seems to be the best that I know of. If I ever get money, I want to be just like her. And Debbie Brown. Ha, Brown, Debbie Brown. She always comes through and she came through really big in this one. I love you Olivia!” Megan, Eau Clare, WI
