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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I love the writing style of popular and prolific author Carolyn Arnold. Each novel is so well written and easy to read. This is the second novel in the Madison Knight series. I was drawn into it right from the beginning. Detective Knight of the Stiles PD now is standing over a bloody woman's corpse, trying to fight back the bile rising in her throat. This murder is very gruesome with blood totally surrounding the entire body of Clair Reeves, 43 years old, who lives alone. It's Christmas Eve, and there is no sign of forced entry, and it's obviously a crime of passion. The maid who found the body, Allison Minard, had told her Clair had many sexual partners and that Clair was disliked by many people, herself included. As Madison's investigation of the crime scene continues, she sends her partner, Terry Grant, home to be with his wife. Maddy is alone this holiday and wished she could have a normal life of loved ones around her. After the body is removed, a white feather lays on the floor, without any blood on it. It just might be an important clue. But as Madison and Terry scramble to solve this crime, Maddy also has to resolve her romantic issues of her personal life. It's like she's carrying a double backpack on her shoulders. Outstanding plot, unique twists and turns, and writing style is superb. This story is very suspenseful and riveting. Highly recommend for crime and mystery fans.

Well....... I already was before I even read this offering. I honestly consider this series like a favorite show. Every time I open my kindle it's like hitting the list on my DVR..... friendly, dependable characters in an intriguing case without an "obvious" answer. Also adding just enough "homelife" scenes to grown you closer to the characters.... I look forward to getting the next one.... Kudos
