“Madison Knight is a tough, sassy, and intelligent detective. She is a straight shooter and takes no crap.”
–My Blissful Books

The hunt for a serial killer begins…

Detective Madison Knight concluded the case of a strangled woman an isolated incident. But when another woman’s body is found in a park killed with the same brand of neckties, she realizes they’re dealing with something more serious.

Despite mounting pressure from the sergeant and the chief to close the case even if it means putting an innocent man behind bars, and a partner who is more interested in saving his marriage than stopping a potential serial killer, Madison may have to go it alone if the murderer is going to be stopped.

    Excellent police procedural book. Captures the life on and off duty of police officers really well, I say this as a former police officer of 21 years. Do yourself a favor and read this book.

    The title holds true to the story line. The author kept you in suspense and guessing who dunnit to the very end. Loved it.

    Good plot, flows well and hard to put down - it keeps you captivated to the twist ending. The story line involves identical twins ... one good and one evil.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Madison Knight is such a real character as are the other people in this story. Looking forward to read the next book in the series.
  • So-So

    As an avid reader, and have read Ms. Arnold's works before, but this novel is quite confusing. A little wordy, and not much in the way of clues to keep me guessing or that interested. I find myself rereading passages as the way it's written, it's hard to tell who said what. The story was interesting, and I only kept reading to find out whodunnit. As a woman, I cannot simply cannot stand how the main character hits, pinches and punches her partner simply because she's a woman and he's not. For a character who is supposed to be a "woman's libber" to be physical against anyone is horrible, but to justify actions because she's a woman sets equal rights back.
  • Great, realistic read!

    Struggled to put this one down actually, and I'm normally a love story, fifty shades kind of girl. So glad to have found this author. Love how easily the stories unfold. Highly recommend! (& I'm not one to leave reviews like...ever LOL)
