--Jacquie Biggar, USA Today Bestselling Author
"This is a sobering and intriguing look at an investigation that is all too pertinent to officers who risk their lives every day. This was an up-close and authentic-feeling look at the process of dealing with the fatality of a fellow officer and the impact that reverberates through the entire team. The exhaustion and negative emotions that must be dealt with are vividly portrayed, as is the painstaking effort that goes into an investigation... This story will be appreciated by those who would like an in-depth look at the workings of a police force as well as those who enjoy an urban mystery."
--The Reading Addict
"WOW. That was my first thought upon finishing this story. This was a superbly done mystery/police procedural... The author also managed to tread that careful line between accurately portraying grief and loss (especially due to a line of duty death), while managing NOT to make the story depressing."
--Krystal, Red Wine & Books
"I'm picky when it comes to police procedurals. While I love watching them, they don't always come across well in book form for me. Either they're lacking in character development, or the twists aren't very twisty, or the plot drags at some point, etc. So I was a bit wary about trying In the Line of Duty. Would it work for me? Would it really live up to the claim "Police Procedurals Respected by Law Enforcement?" I'm happy to say that it did."
--Emily, Sharing Links and Wisdom
"Each of the Madison Knight books work well as stand-alone novels.... In the Line of Duty lays out the cold, hard realization of life on the blue line. And, unfortunately, echoes an all-too-real event in today's world ... the death of a fellow officer... Arnold does a wonderful job portraying what it's like to be out there in the real world as a police officer on a day-to-day basis. Her facts are accurate and the book is well written. For fans of police procedurals, this book certainly delivers."
--Nancy Fraser, Notes from a Romantic's Heart
"An intense, action-filled police procedural...filled with colorful characters, good dialogue, a solid mystery and plenty of emotional angst... If you like reading solid mysteries, a strong female protagonist, and police procedurals with plenty of action, this is a book and series you will definitely want to check out."
--Maria Durst, Queen of All She Reads
"Anyone who loves police procedures will love this book. It takes you in a step-by-step sequence to show you how the police operate and how they conduct investigations.... The plot of the story is complex with many layers... The book is suspenseful as the investigation moves to its conclusion... It's a good read that I enjoyed."
