Book Description

Eleven Rooms. Ten Bodies. One Empty Grave.

Brandon Fisher never expected this when he signed up as a Special Agent for the FBI. Working in the shadow of Supervisory Special Agent Jack Harper of the Behavioral Analysis Unit his career seemed set. But when the team is called to a small rural town where the remains of ten victims are found in an underground bunker, buried in an unusual way, Brandon knows he'll never return to his normal life.

With one empty grave, and the case touching close to home, he fears he's become the target of a psychotic serial killer who wants to make him number eleven. Only thing is, everything Brandon thinks he knows is far from the truth.

Length: 103,000 words


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Arnold's imagination and attention to detail do not leave any loose ends. Exciting."

-- THE MIAMI BOOKS EXAMINER'S "Top 12 Fiction Books of 2011" list.

From the Author

For the suggested reading order of each series, see Carolyn Arnold's Amazon Author Page.

~~
THE MADISON KNIGHT SERIES falls neatly into the police procedural genre with murder investigations and forensics. Think Law & Order meets CSI. There is some foul language and limited graphic violence.

~~
THE BRANDON FISHER FBI SERIES toys the edge between the police procedural genre and thriller genre. Due to this, you will find foul language and graphic violence in this series.

~~
THE MCKINLEY MYSTERY SERIES ventures outside of the typical crime genre, lending itself to the cozy variety with no foul language or graphic violence. The series combines romance, mystery, humor, and adventure for a lighthearted, easy read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great serial killer read September 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I do not read a lot of serial killer books because I guess I've read so many and watched so many Criminal Minds episodes that I just got tired with the whole serial killer thing. However, Eleven caught my eye so I downloaded the sample chapters and was hooked. The premise is good and a little different. The characters are well developed and it kept me turning the pages. Well worth the read. It reminded me how much better a book is than a movie or TV episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome new series!! November 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love suspense novels and even more than that I love ones involving FBI agents. I don't really know why, but it is what it is. When I first discovered this book I was a little more than excited to read it and I am happy to say that now that I have finished it I am even more excited!

My first reaction to this suspense filled book is that it was like reading an episode of Criminal Minds, and if you have seen that show then you already know how awesome this book is going to be. From the moment I picked up the book I was thrown into the story and it never let me go. As the story unraveled and clues unfolded I felt like I was participating in the hunt as much as the agents in the story. And let me tell you, never did I see that ending coming. It snuck up on me like a birthday you no longer wish to have. But it was one hell of a twist to an already exiting story.

Not only did I love this story I loved its characters, all of them. You see, I find that a lot of suspense books now days often make the lead character this perfect cop or agent who is rugged and tough, never backs down from a fight, always get's their man and almost seems untouchable. But the lead character in this book is far from any of those things. He is a new agent, he doesn't always know what to do, he has made mistakes in his past, he allows his emotions to rule him, and he seems to seek approval from his fellow agents as to whether or not he is a good agent.

And what makes this character even better is the fact that he is surrounded by other characters you can't help but love. Such as Paige the strong willed agent who shares a personal history with Brandon and can more than handle herself in a world of evil. Zachery the smart agent who has a photographic memory and a bit of a sarcastic attitude.

I was very intrigued by the premise of this book based on its description. I think the author paced the story very well to keep you reading to find out what would happen next.

We join Special Agent Brandon Fisher on his first case working in the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit. Ten bodies are discovered in a hidden bunker that we find out parallels an old cold case and this sets in motion a series of events that eventually bring things a bit too close to home for Brandon.

He has to deal with a lot of different stressors throughout the book: the potential suspect, his new boss, his not-so-understanding wife, and an old flame. So there's a lot going on in the midst of the investigation.

The majority of the story is told from Brandon's POV in the first person, so for me it was a bit distracting when the story jumped to a third person POV with a few of the supporting characters. That felt disjointed, especially as I feel like Brandon's POV was strong enough to be able to carry the whole story.

If you like serial killer stories, then you will likely enjoy this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Can't get past all the grammatical errors March 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very good plot, which keeps me engaged for about a page-and-a-half, until I come across the next typo, grammatical or syntax error. Does any author/editor/proofreader not know that it's "..between you and me", rather than "...between you and I"? It's the writing style of a teenage girl.

2.0 out of 5 stars cluttered, over worked and difficult to read September 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Could not finish this book. Struggled to 1/2 way almost, then started skipping through to see if it improved. It didn't. Premise is good, a good plot, but totally got lost in the dialogue, the complicated characters, and the sillyness of - god, AGAIN - romance. Where have all the good and believable crime novels gone?

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars November 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
3.5 stars.

Brandon Fisher is on his probationary period with the FBI and his first case is one for the record books. This is a rather dark story (Hannibal Lecter worthy serial killer and a very imperfect main character). Early in the investigation, this case gets personal for Special Agent Fisher. We as readers get a first person view into the FBI procedures as well as the mind of our special agent. The plot and pacing were spot on, and nothing is given away too early.

Here is where my review takes on a personal tone. The story is told in both first person (with Brandon) and third person (with several other characters). I had a hard time adjusting to this however, not so much that I quit reading. (Yes kids, the plot was that engaging). I also had some issues with Brandon as a person, but my issues with him were also something necessary to the plot of the story and made for a very good progression device.

You really do get to know the main cast of characters, and they are fleshed out very well. About a third of the way through this book I really appreciated the different narratives (the switching between first and third person), and could see how it really helped to tell the story in the best way possible.

Overall this is a book I really enjoyed and I will be reading the next in the Brandon Fisher FBI Series: Silent Graves (late 2013).
