“Fans of crime fiction will be moved and enthralled by In the Line of Duty, as much an action-packed mystery as it is a heartfelt tribute to police who give up their lives to protect others.” —Publishers Weekly
In the Line of Duty (Detective Madison Knight Series) is here! Be sure to scroll down for a video message, too.
I’m so excited to share this book with the world because it carries the message that police are people, too. All too often we hear about violent attacks against police officers. I wanted to show how the loss of a brother in blue affects them—not only on a professional level but more importantly, on a personal one.
This book is an honest portrayal of life and loss in the police force and throws Madison into the most heart-wrenching and personal case she’s had to face yet.
“This is a sobering and intriguing look at an investigation that is all too pertinent to officers who risk their lives every day.” —The Reading Addict
Officer Barry Weir had an hour to go on his shift, and he was more than ready to get back to his wife and kids. But he wouldn’t make it home that day.
When news of Weir’s murder reaches the precinct, the Stiles Police Department is more than a little shaken. And while Detective Madison Knight and her fellow officers are grief-stricken, they are determined to seek justice for their fallen brother. The loss hits the group hard, but no one as much as Troy Matthews, Weir’s childhood friend and Madison’s boyfriend. But instead of leaning on the others, Troy isolates himself just when they need one another the most.
As Madison and her team follow the investigation into the town’s seedy underbelly, their case gets more convoluted and dangerous. A gang shooting, a hate crime, or a targeted kill—the possibilities seem to keep multiplying. And their time is running out as the threat starts to spread.
“Gut wrenching… This is one book you won’t know who did it until the END!”—Harps Romance Book Review
In the Line of Duty sheds light on the compassion and humanity of the police force. It explores more than just a crime scene; it illuminates the camaraderie and loyalty behind the badge.
