Publisher's Summary

If She Knew (A Kate Wise Mystery) is audiobook number one in a new psychological thriller series by best-selling author Blake Pierce.

Fifty-five-year-old empty nester - and freshly retired FBI agent - Kate Wise finds herself drawn out of her quiet suburban life when her friend’s daughter is murdered in a home invasion - and she is implored to help.

Kate thought she left the FBI behind after 30 years as their top agent, respected for her brilliant mind, tough street skills, and her uncanny ability to hunt down serial killers. Yet Kate, bored with the quiet town, at a crossroads in life, is summoned by a friend she can’t turn down.

As Kate hunts the killer, she soon finds herself at the forefront of a manhunt as more bodies turn up - all suburban moms in perfect marriages - and it becomes apparent there is a serial killer stalking this quiet town. She unearths secrets from her neighbors she wishes she never knew, discovering that all is not what it seems in this picture of model streets and neighbors. Affairs and lying are rampant, and Kate must sift through the town’s underbelly if she will stop the killer from striking again.

But this killer is one step ahead of her, and it may end up being Kate who is in danger.

An action-packed thriller with heart-pounding suspense, If She Knew is audiobook number one in a riveting new series that will leave you listening late into the night. 

Audiobook number two in the Kate Wise Mystery series is coming soon!

Good thing to put you to sleep

Story not bad but the narrator the way she talked took the actual thrill out of the story, made it boring and put you to sleep. The voice sounded like it should’ve been telling a love story not a thriller

Entertaining but not for me

This is a good book with a well developed plot and characters. But this isn't my kind of book. I would recommend it to anyone who likes police procedural books.

great story, poor reader

the reader was very hard for an individual to get into the story her voice was too breathy and there was no change in the voice for the different characters which is always at least a little bit wanted

Very interesting and enjoyable

I really enjoyed this book, however, I felt the heroine was made week by the narrator’s performance. She seemed to me to be almost whispering the story. The character is a strong one and needs a strong voice to represent her. I see that a new narrator is assigned in book 3 and I may just skip over book 2. I really enjoyed this character.

Story versus narrator

Story was decent and moved at a good pace. Narrator’s speech and cadence was so annoying I had to force myself to finish it.

One dimensional narration

I love a good murder mystery; especially when its difficult to put all the pieces together. Unfortunately the narration irritated me so much that it was hard to continue. She reads as though always whispering and fails to represent characters with unique voices.

I liked the story

I liked the story, but it was a struggle to get through this one. The narrator is not good. She is trying to hard and sounds so uptight! The few times she manages to relax during her reading there is hope, but i was not impressed with her. I see she narrates more in this series and therefore I won’t listen. I’ll have to take it in the old fashioned way.

Good, but...

I love this author. The story was pretty good, but I did not care for the narrator's voice/delivery. It was too "fake".

Narrator Kills It

The whispy narrator voice, even at increased speed, sounds so boring au can’t make it past the first chapter without wanting a nap.

Easy listening

Just an easy listen, not very taxing, nothing outstanding and nothing offensive. Don’t think it was worth a credit but it passed the time.

Robotic narration

I’m sorry to say that although the story was ok nothing amazing just a standard fbi type thing it probably would have been better with a different narrator. It felt like it was being read by Siri.

Narrated spoils the whole book

No emotion in her voice which makes the story so flat, which is a really shame because the story had great promise.

Dreadful narration, predictable plot.

The plot reads like a made for a 1 hour tv cop drama, and it’s really not hard to work out whodunnit. It’s painful in its constant focus on how “old” the protagonist is, being an over 50s female. Anyone would think life ends at 45!

But the aeration is abominable. The delivery is wooden, flat and lifeless. If you told me a bot was reading it, I would not be surprised.

Hard pass!
