Book Review { Once Gone }

Synopsis: 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. 

I found this book for free on the iBook app and I am so glad I stumbled upon it because it was a great mystery book. Typically I have been reading more romance novels but I enjoyed  Gone Girl so I thought I would try another suspense novel and this might have started another new genre of books I love to read. My husband and I are big into Criminal Minds, I mean we look forward to the next episode the second the most recent ended. But I was a little skeptical if it would keep my attention like Criminal Minds does, but as soon as I started it I had no problem being able to imagine the scenes playing out in my head. The book moved very quickly and it was an easy read for me, it really kept me wondering what was going to happen next! And the ending was just so intriguing I will definitely be reading the second book Once Taken next!

If you are looking for a good mystery-murder book, try this one - it's free what do you have to lose?
