Editorial Reviews

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.

If one of your loved ones has been murdered, you want the tenacious Detective Madison Knight on the case. Unless, of course, it was you wielding the gun, knife or blunt object. Carolyn Arnold's follow up to "Ties That Bind" expands Knight's world and continues to develop her excellent characters. And she does it while offering up a complicated mystery. Ms Arnold's book passes my #1 test for a great mystery -- it kept me guessing to the end! I've already picked up the next book in the series.

This is the second book I've read in this series and I've enjoyed them both.If I could give one bit of advise to the writer it would be, "When you find a phrase that works well for you, please don't over use it".ie. " matched eyes with, or shut up" There are a few typos also and it would flow better if they were corrected. I'm always happy to find a good read. I will look for the next one in this series.

This was an interesting story but was marred by the abrasive personality of the main character. She was snippy to her partner and continually punched him in the arm or told him to "shut up". She accused everyone in sight of murder then argued when they denied it. She was obsessive about her work as a police officer to the detriment of those around her and she has serious anger issues. She whined on and on about her love interest. Why she accepted a dog she didn't want is beyond me, especially since her weak stomach can't handle blood, much less dog poopies.

This book is a fast read and the plot is interesting albeit convoluted. I don't mind so much that the protagonist is not likeable, as other reviews have pointed out, but I would like the characters to be believable. Dialogue is clumsy and forced. The author should take note that the commonly used nickname for sergeant is "Sarge" not "Serg." Got spellcheck? Not sure where her editor was on that one. The book is readable but if you are looking for literary excellence, you won't find it here. I would not buy this author again.

I'm sorry to say I didn't enjoy this book at all. The lead character, Madison Knight, was in such emotional turmoil throughout the book that I never grew to like her. She frankly was exhausting and I couldn't see how her co-workers and love interest could endure her cranky, prickly, personality. There was just too much description of that turmoil and I tired of it early.

A murder occurs in this book immediately on Christmas Eve and the main character, Madison Knight, and her partner show up to start working the case right then and there. I then read to the halfway point of this book and I just stopped. I usually read a "mystery" book all the way through, even if the tale is a poor one, just to see if my suspect is truly the murderer, but in this case I honestly could care less. You see, there is a murder mystery somewhere in this book, but the tale is actually about a Type A female workaholic main character who is extremely dysfunctional with regard to her career, her friendships, her family and her romantic relationships. At the 50% read point, I knew more about her feelings and why she has these them than I did about the "mystery" murder that has occurred. So I stopped reading this tripe and recommend that any true mystery/suspense genre fan to not even bother with it. And based on this, I am also not going to bother with the rest of the book series either and recommend mystery/suspense genre fans do the same there also.

This book should be listed under the Romantic Suspense heading and kept as far away from the true Mystery/Suspense heading as much as possible. In fact, it may be a mystery as to whether there is even romance in this book. As I previously stated, the romance that was in the book up to the 50% point regarded an extremely dysfunctional relationship mostly due to the main character's traits.

Please understand that I did read the first book in this series entitled "Ties that Bind" and felt it was a very good mystery. It should also be stated here that I am male and still felt this way. It was a decent police procedural mystery in fact.

JUSTIFIED

By Carolyn Arnold

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

TV programs Castle and Law and Order SUV both have strong women as detectives, who solve murder crimes. In JUSTIFIED, Ms. Arnold detective Madison Knight is as tough as they come.

As the lead partner, she takes control of a murder scene with Terry, her male subordinate, whose character complements Knight’s decisive, intuitive personality. Their combined intelligence comes into play, trying to solve the death of a manipulative woman, who has literally screwed the men and the businesses they owned.

The duo's personal lives are interwoven into their daily investigative chores. At times those encounters are humanly funny. Knight is a one hundred percent work-alcoholic –to get the job done before pleasure person and Terry has a family, needing time to be with them; and he tries to bring out Madison’s soft side.

The crime has multiple suspects which complicates things time wise. They seem to be moving in the right direction various times as to whodunit but are left hanging. With combined initiative, Knight and Terry get the lead that helps them reach their goal.

How they do it, is good police work, which author Arnold does an excellent job of writing. I have read many whodunit novels and have watch endless movies/TV detective stories.

Therefore, as somewhat of a self-professed expert, I will state: Ms. Carolyn Arnold’s novel JUSTIFIED is one of the better examples of detective novels I have read in my fifty plus years of reading.
