Book Overview for Eleven
Eleven Rooms. Ten Bodies. One Empty Grave.
Brandon Fisher never expected this when he signed up as a Special Agent for the FBI. Working in the shadow of Supervisory Special Agent Jack Harper of the Behavioral Analysis Unit his career seemed set. But when the team is called to a small rural town where the remains of ten victims are found in an underground bunker, buried in an unusual way, Brandon knows he’ll never return to his normal life.
With one empty grave, and the case touching close to home, he fears he’s become the target of a psychotic serial killer who wants to make him number eleven. Only thing is, everything Brandon thinks he knows is far from the truth.
Testimonials & Reviews for Eleven
“A great police procedural! Eleven by Carolyn Arnold is a great story and full of twists and turns. While I usually have figured out most police procedurals long before the end, this was not the case here. The ending was a surprise! The characters are well developed and a mix of interesting personalities. If you are looking for a police procedural that holds your interest to the end, Eleven is for you!”
—Mark Davis, Retired FBI Special Agent 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.”
—Danielle Young, Consuming Words
“Masterful, gripping writing! Would make a thrilling movie!…”
—Betty Dravis, Amazon Top Reviewer
“…Silence of the Lambs, move over. ELEVEN is an absolutely stunning performance.”
—Frederick Lee Brooke, Author & Reviewer
“I found Eleven to be very real-like and exciting. It showed that Officers—even the FBI—have personal issues or problems that can interfere with their thinking on the job. Also it was presented so real that I almost felt like I was an Officer in the case and the book. I read it in 2 days. I just could not put it down, even staying up until 1 am reading. This is the first book of hers I have read and now I started a 2nd one. I want to read them all. It seemed true to life for me and kept me interested completely. I am excited to read the other books. I read the book The Silence of The Lambs, and in my personal opinion, this book is better. Read it you won’t be disappointed.”
—Pamela Munger, Retired Patrol Officer and Juvenile Officer, Pecatonica Police Department in Pecatonica Illinois
“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.”
—Rachel Dove, 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 recommend.”
—Nancy Silk, Book Reviewer
“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, Author of Devil’s Nightmare
“I was very intrigued…If you like serial killer stories, then you will enjoy this book.
—Cege Smith, Author of Shadows Deep
“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.”
—Charlotte Ivory, Steam & Ink
“This mystery/thriller was very fast paced, written as if from the hands and mind of a former FBI agent! Carolyn’s ability to layer the spellbinding suspense from one chapter to the next was fantastic. I found myself awake twice at 2:00 in the morning, on work nights no less, to finish.
“The interplay between the central characters was devilishly detailed and just added the last hint of spice to make this wonderful serial killer recipe perfection. 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!”
—Ashley Fontainne, Author of Whispered Pain
