Summary

In The Perfect Smile (book four), criminal profiler Jessie Hunt, 29, fresh from the FBI Academy, is assigned a disturbing new case: a woman in her 30s has been murdered after using a dating website for her affairs with married men.

Had she gotten too close to one of the married men?

Was she the victim of blackmail? Of a stalker?

Or was there some far more nefarious motive at stake?

The list of suspects takes Jessie into wealthy, manicured neighborhoods, behind the veil of seemingly perfect lives, lives which are actually rotten to the core. The killer, she realizes, must lie behind one of these fake, plastic smiles.

Jessie must plumb the depths of his psychosis as she tries to both catch a killer and hold her own fragile psyche together - with her own murderous father on the loose, willing to stop at nothing until he kills her.

A fast-paced psychological suspense thriller with unforgettable characters and heart-pounding suspense, The Perfect Smile is book four in a riveting new series that will leave you listening late into the night.

Book five in the Jessie Hunt series is also now available for preorder!

How does she do it?

Author Blake Pierce releases mystery/thriller novels in ten ongoing series in four formats and five languages at the rate of one new book every three weeks. She is prolific! She is an industry all to herself. Yet the quality does not seem to suffer at all. THE PERFECT SMILE is an excellent psychological thriller with a surprise ending.

Great ending...

... Can’t wait to see where Pierce will take this character next.
Blake Pierce released three new books in three of his different FBI series this week. One each from the Kate Wise, Chloe Fine and this one from Jessie Hunt.
Pierce is a very talented writer. His stories are generally fast paced if not always believable, the characters are likable. In this book a 29 year old FBI agent is being kept in a safe house by night to avoid her murderous serial killer father but allowed to hunt another killer during the day. Both cases are interesting but the agent’s situation just doesn’t seem plausible.
Sarah Pavelec does a great job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

WEIRD NARRATION!

This narrator’s reading style makes no sense. She very frequently ends a sentence in the middle and then continues with the rest of the sentence as though it is a new sentence or thought; for example, ‘“Okay,” said Harrington’ is read as “Okay.” “Said Harrington.” Ms. Pavelec narrates this odd way so frequently that it becomes impossible to get into the groove of the story itself. It’s a shame because I had to quit listening after the first few chapters and don’t know if the story was any good. I will not listen to any future audiobook narrated by Sarah Pavelec.

Couldn't stop listening!

So enthralled was I with book one, I HAD to hear more. Like a powerful drug, I denied myself food and sleep to listen to books 3 & 4 in the neighborhood of 24 hours. Book 5 will over take me in a couple of hours; I'm addicted to this series.

Having listened to hundreds of thrillers over 20 years, I believe I'm qualified to render such high praise. Ironically, Blake Pierce was an unknown. In fact, searching for my next read, I grumbled that his books saturated book titles. Who is this guy? Now I understand. Being on a fixed income, I rarely am willing to pay a fee to feed my addiction. In this instance I paid the fee without hesitation. Mr. Pierce, you are a master!

Good story-awful narration

It is a good stroy; well written. the narration was flat, nasaly, stilted, and overall poorly executed.

Riveting!

These books just get better and better! Like the earlier ones in the series, this one had twists and turns that definitely kept my interest. Blake Pierce spins a story that has you rooting for her main character, Jessie Hunt, but never knowing who is safe! There are dark and horrible characters but threads of hope and courage throughout. I highly recommend if you can handle some raw violence but enjoy a great nail biter. This book totally delivers on “not being able to put it down” and “what just happened!”
