Book Overview for Eleven
Eleven Rooms. Ten Bodies. One Empty Grave.
When Brandon Fisher joined the FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit, he knew he’d come up against psychopaths, sociopaths, pathological liars, and more. But when his first case takes him and the team to Salt Lick, Kentucky, to hunt down a ritualistic serial killer, he learns what nightmares are truly made of.
Beneath a residential property, local law enforcement discovered an underground bunker with circular graves that house the remains of ten victims. But that’s not all: there’s an empty eleventh grave, just waiting for a corpse. The killing clearly hasn’t come to an end yet, and with the property owner already behind bars, Brandon is certain there’s an apprentice who roams free.
As the FBI follows the evidence across the United States, Brandon starts to struggle with the deranged nature of his job description. And if the case itself isn’t going to be enough to push Brandon over the edge, he’s working in the shadow of Supervisory Special Agent Jack Harper, who expects nothing short of perfection from his team. To make matters even worse, it seems Brandon has become the target of a psychotic serial killer who wants to make him—or his wife—victim number eleven.
Testimonials & Reviews for Eleven
“Carolyn Arnold did a good job with her depiction of how the Bureau works, although the literary license she took did make for a more exciting story. I’m looking forward to reading more of her books.”
–Ed Evans, Retired FBI Agent, FBI Headquarters, Washington, DC
“Must devour… 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… Not only did I love this story I loved its characters, all of them.”
“Masterful, gripping writing! Would make a thrilling movie!…”
–Betty Dravis, Award-winning author and journalist
“…Silence of the Lambs, move over. ELEVEN is an absolutely stunning performance.”
–Frederick Lee Brooke, Author & Reviewer
“Looking for an FBI thriller? This is it!… You just want to don a badge and gun, and delve in there yourself… The characters are real, honest, and gritty, and the ‘baddies’ get under your skin, willing you to unravel their psyche. I love a good thriller and this did not disappoint.”
–The Kindle Review
“You’ll feel like you are right there with the team of FBI agents as they race against time to stop the serial killer from filling the final grave…. Carolyn Arnold writes in a quick-paced style that I love. She has great dialogue. Her ability to build suspense hooks you from the first chapter. Arnold is a master at almost filling in the blanks–but then leaving you dangling.”
–Rosie Cochran, Author of A Murder Unseen
“An excellent investigative series… Highly recommended.”
–My Book Reviews
“Eleven is an FBI thriller that has great character development and an excellent story… I enjoyed following the FBI team’s investigation from the main character’s perspective and seeing how he reacted to certain situations. I love thrillers and therefore can be very picky with the end result of the roller-coaster ride that is expected from them. Arnold did a very good job of keeping me guessing during the investigation in Eleven. Just when you think the team is on the right track, something throws them off. I had my suspicions of who the killer was (I was wrong of course!), but I was pleasantly surprised when the killer was finally revealed.”
–Robert Pruneda, Bestselling author
“I was very intrigued…If you like serial killer stories, then you will enjoy this book.”
–Cege Smith, Bestselling author
“It moved at a cracking pace, but was still a complex story with several sub plots… An excellent read, which I’m sure will be a favorite for fans of police procedurals and intelligent suspense novels.”
–Steam & Ink
“This mystery/thriller was very fast paced, written as if from the hands and mind of a former FBI agent! … Spellbinding suspense from one chapter to the next… The interplay between the central characters was devilishly detailed and just added the last hint of spice to make this wonderful serial killer recipe [perfect]. And the use of Brandon, the fresh-from-the-academy newbie, damaged goods and all, as the eyes with which to tell the story through was masterful! If you love a high suspense, plot twists and break neck speeds for your reading pleasure, then I highly recommend [this book]!”
–Ashley Fontainne, Bestselling author
