Book Overview for The Defenseless
When the victims have no voice…
The first victim was poisoned. Three others are missing. One turns up dead.
It’s almost Christmastime, but FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher and his team are packing their bags for Colorado to stop a serial killer. But they soon find out this might not be an easy case to solve as the killer’s method of operation keeps changing.
A look into the victims’ pasts reveals one commonality, though: they all beat charges of animal abuse. The killer, known as the Advocate, is inflicting the same treatment on them that they had allegedly committed against their animals. And while the job is all about finding justice, this investigation has the FBI team questioning who is on the right side—them or the murderer. But they’re going to have to get themselves together quickly if they’re going to catch a killer and return home for the holidays.
Testimonials & Reviews for The Defenseless
“Another enthralling investigative thriller… Carolyn Arnold’s stories in this series reveal realistic investigative procedures and the characters are well developed. Her stories are well written and readers can easily become drawn strongly into the story line. Highly recommend.”
—Nancy Silk, Book Reviewer
“Arnold has a quality to her writing that brings her characters to life. Brandon and his fellow FBI agents are searching for a serial killer. The deaths are violent, but Arnold envelopes the reader deeply enough in the killer’s mind that a reader may develop a bit of empathy for the killer. The plot races forward with twists and turns where least expected and brings the reader to a surprising end.”
—Marianne Spitzer, Author of Dark Corridors
“The story here is a heartbreaking one…a serial killer out to strike revenge against those who abuse animals. It was interesting to see how the agents tangled with their own morality while trying to pursue a killer who, in so many ways, was justified in their actions. But in the end, no one is above the law and the FBI will stop at nothing to find the truth… It’s non-stop action right up until the heart pounding conclusion. You won’t want to put it down, and it’s guaranteed to tug at your heartstrings.”
—Katie Jennings, Author of So Fell the Sparrow
“The Advocate has been planning revenge on dog abusers for a long time. Several animal abusers are put to death using the exact tortures that they inflicted on dogs…meticulously recreated (though the story is not gory). The Advocate thinks he is invincible and his standards of what constitutes being worthy of death are becoming broader…accidents count and no attempt is made to establish actual guilt. A quick read that follows Brandon Fisher of the FBI and his team examining many suspects with many reasons for protecting the Defenseless.”
—The Bluest Butterfly
“Carolyn Arnold provides entertainment and accuracy.”
—Michael D. Scott, Patrolman (Ret.), Castroville, Texas
“For Police procedurals that are painstakingly researched and accurately portrayed look no further than Carolyn Arnold’s works. The only way it gets more real than this is to leave the genre completely.”
—Zach Fortier, Police Officer (Ret.), Colorado, United States
“Carolyn Arnold writes realistic and entertaining police procedurals with characters so real, I lose myself in her books.”
—Deputy Rebecca Hendrix, LeFlore County Sheriff’s Department, Poteau, Oklahoma
