WAITING (The Making of Riley Paige—Book Two) is book #2 in a new psychological thriller series by #1 bestselling author Blake Pierce, whose free bestseller Once Gone (Book #1) has received over 1,000 five star reviews. 

Brilliant 22 year old FBI intern Riley Paige struggles to decode the riddles of the sadistic serial killer dubbed by media as the “clown killer”—but finds it all becomes too personal when she herself, targeted, is in a battle for her life.

Recent college graduate Riley Paige is accepted into the prestigious FBI summer internship program, and is determined to make a name for herself. Exposed to many departments of the FBI, she thinks it will be a quiet summer—until a serial killer holds Washington by suspense. Dubbed the “clown killer,” he dressed and paints his victims as clowns, and mocks the FBI with tantalizing riddles in the media. He leaves everyone to wonder: is he a clown himself?

It seems that only Riley has the mind brilliant enough to decode the answers. And yet the journey into this killer’s mind is too dark—and the battle too personal—for Riley to come out unscathed. Can she win this deadly game of cat and mouse?

An action-packed thriller with heart-pounding suspense, WAITING is book #2 in a riveting new series that will leave you turning pages late into the night. It takes readers back 20 plus years—to how Riley’s career began—and is the perfect complement to the ONCE GONE series (A Riley Paige Mystery), which includes 13 books and counting.

Book #3 in THE MAKING OF RILEY PAIGE series will be available soon.
