Summary:

CITY OF PREY (An Ava Gold Mystery—Book 1) is the debut novel in a long-anticipated new series by #1 bestseller and USA Today bestselling author Blake Pierce, whose bestseller Once Gone (a free download) has received over 1,000 five star reviews.




In the rough streets of 1920s New York City, 34 year-old Ava Gold, a widower and single mom, claws her way up to become the first female homicide detective in her NYPD precinct. She is as tough as they come, and willing to hold her own in a man’s world.




But when a psychotic serial killer unleashes a rampage, murdering young women across the city, Ava will have to search the dark canals of the twisted killer’s mind if she has any hope of hunting him down. With psychological profiling still in its infancy, and mocked by most, Ava will be even more alone as she follows her instinct, and hunts him down in a dangerous game of cat and mouse.




Just when it seems the stakes couldn’t be higher, Ava comes to an awful realization: she herself may be the next target.




Amidst the speakeasies, jazz clubs, mafia-run prohibition rings, horrific mental asylums and dangerous back alleys of the city, can Ava achieve what all the men cannot: enter the sick mind of a killer, and stop him before more women die?




A heart-pounding suspense thriller filled with shocking twists, the authentic and atmospheric AVA GOLD MYSTERY SERIES is a riveting page-turner, endearing us to a strong and brilliant character that will capture your heart and keep you reading late into the night.




Books #2 and #3 in the series—CITY OF FEAR and CITY OF BONES—are now also available.

    I love period detective novels, and was intrigued by this one. I felt like it had a Nancy Drew kind of vibe, a bit melodramatic and unrealistic.

    the timeline of her employment and promotions is unbelievable, with no experience she goes out on her own and makes major breaks in the case, the whole story timeline seemed to be rushed and therefore improbable

    City of Prey (Ava Gold #1) was a great read by Blake Pierce. Ava Gold is a 34 year old widower and single mom. In 1920s New York City, she claws her way up to become the first female homicide detective in her NYPD precinct. There is a psychotic serial killer who is murdering young women across the city. Ava will do whatever she can in order to hunt down the killer. Unfortunately Ava is alone to follow her instincts during this dangerous game of cat and mouse. Ava realizes that she may be the killers next target. I enjoyed reading this book and can’t wait to read more by the author.
