8 posts | 14 read | 13 to read
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 killers 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 seriesand a beloved new characterthat will leave you turning pages late into the night. Book #2 in the Riley Paige series will be available soon.

It was fun, but for a brilliant FBI agent, she sure made some poor life choices! Ending was a smidge anticlimactic as well. I know there are a bunch more in the series, and I will eventually get to those if for nothing more than to see how the cliffhanger pans out

This book has Some VERY obvious flaws.. the writing was not fantastic, the pacing was bizarre, and there was a HUGE plot point that was never resolved. Riley makes really bad choices again and again. But, after being in a big reading slump, I read this in a few hours and it kept my interest the whole time. Definitely a pick for fans of criminal minds. #femaledetective for #booked2019 and Self Published for #readharder.

BookDragonNotWorm I remember thinking the same thing when I read this - there was a lot working against it but I ended up liking it anyway. 12mo

Wow, this book was always on the move. This novel certainly could have been shown in the TV episodes of Criminal Minds. I enjoyed reading it and will look for the other books in the series.

Fast paced and kept my attention, but . . . some parts were a little too unbelievable, inconsistencies in book/plot, and some flat out errors. I enjoyed it more than I was annoyed by it, so I guess it's a pick.

melbeautyandbooks Enjoyed it more than annoyed by it. That is a great way of putting it and it makes so much sense to me. I have felt that same way about many books. 3y
