  • Awesome New Series

    In this new series, City of Prey, readers are taken back to the late 1920s and introduced to Ava Gold as she begins her police work in the NYPD’s Women’s Bureau. The dialogue in the book clearly depicts the speech and attitudes from ninety plus years ago, and I was transported back in time. I loved the look back to the struggles for equality of women in the workforce. It was exciting to read Ava’s struggles toward catching and stopping this mentally unstable serial murderer while being able to cheer on her tenacity when obstacles continued to get in her way. This book was a creative switch from the more modern day FBI heroines from all of Blake Pierce’s other great series. City of Prey shows the perseverance of Ava and her female colleagues on the police force as they search to apprehend the hatchet-killer before claiming his next victim. I can’t wait for book two and more—I’m already a HUGE fan of Ava Gold and look forward to future reads as she makes a name for herself as a New York City homicide detective.

  • The Start of Another Fantastic Series by Blake Pi

    This is the start of another GREAT series by Blake Pierce. It’s a little slow to start but it is the first book in the series and there’s a lot of background to layout. City of Prey is a time period piece where women’s just won the right to vote but still aren’t considered equals. Ava Gold, is a recently widowed wife of a cop and wants a job to follow in his footsteps. It starts off as her way to cope with his loss and move on but quickly learns she is a natural and ends up hunting the current serial killer terrorizing women of the city. In true Blake Pierce fashion, the story has an open ending that makes you not want to wait to continue the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!

Little does she know she’s expected to stay in the background and blow a whistle if she sees trouble. Eva is no willowy bystander. Her drive and determination get her into trouble with her new boss. However, when she sees a murderer and takes chase, it’s only the beginning of a rampage that will provide an opportunity for Eva to prove herself, if she doesn’t get killed first.
