Publisher's Summary

From Blake Pierce, best-selling author of Once Gone (a number one best seller with over 800 five star reviews), comes book four in the heart-pounding Mackenzie White mystery series.

In Before He Takes (A Mackenzie White Mystery - Book Four), newly minted FBI agent Mackenzie White is ordered to take on a new and disturbing case. Women are going missing in rural Iowa, and a pattern is emerging. It is feared a serial killer is on a rampage, his pace increasing. Given her Midwestern roots, Mackenzie is chosen as the perfect fit.

But Mackenzie is reluctant to return to the Midwest, this time to a starkly rural setting that reminds her too much of her upbringing, of her own ghosts in her closet. She also seeks her own father's murderer, with darkness haunting her at every turn of her trip. Plunged deep into the world of farms, of silos, of slaughterhouses, of long stretches on empty highways, Mackenzie feels as if she's falling back into the depths of her psyche, and into the nightmares she always feared to face.

In the deadly game of cat-and-mouse, she finally realizes the psychosis of the killer she is up against, and comes to realize that the land of her upbringing is holding even darker and more twisted horrors than she could imagine.

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, Before He Takes is book four in a riveting new series - with a beloved new character - that will leave you listening late into the night.

Book five in the Mackenzie White Mystery series will be available soon.

Quite the ride

I've been following this story for a while because I fell in love with them. This one does not disappoint. The ups, the downs, all good. I'm also happy they finally started to deviate from the original recipe that was ever so present in the previous books. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because there were several questions left unanswered at the end of the book leaving myself to wonder if I had actually reached the end. I suppose it is possible that they can be answered in later books but seeing as to the fact that individual cases don't seem to bleed into the next book that much, I'm assuming not.
