A completely nail-biting and gripping crime thriller.

The first rays of sun filter through the tall trees, casting a faint light on the girl lying at the water’s edge. Her tears have frozen on her pale face, a black orchid rests against her cold white skin.

When hikers find the body of a beautiful young girl on the banks of the Potomac River, Detective Amanda Steele is shaken and confused. What is the significance of the delicate flower resting on the girl’s torso? A sign of affection, or a twisted killer’s calling card?

The girl is Chloe Somner, a local nineteen-year-old ecology student well-known to the park rangers and loved by all her classmates. Searching Chloe’s home, Amanda can’t work out who could have tempted her to the water in the early hours of the morning, but a long night hunting through cold cases gives her a possible lead: twenty years ago another local girl was murdered, a red rose left on her body. But why would this killer strike again now?

Focused on the past, the last thing Amanda expects is the news that Chloe’s roommate has been found dead, another black orchid left. Terrified that more innocent victims will follow, can Amanda uncover the significance of the flowers and stop this cold-hearted killer before he returns for the next orchid girl…?

A totally compulsive crime thriller! Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine.

Readers love Black Orchid Girls:

“An exciting, intriguing, tense mystery that kept me unable to put the book down. There were so many suspects, and even surprises at the end. To say too much more would be spoilers, and this was a very good story that needs to be read from start to finish.”

The Reading Café

“Arnold delivered a suspenseful, fast-paced tale that keeps the reader on their toes from start to finish. It features characters with whom readers can relate. Fans of police procedurals, mysteries and thrillers should read this series.”

NetGalley reviewer

“Compelling and enthralling and one that grips you from start to finish, this quite simply is a book that you will not want to put down. This will inspire anyone into further world of reading and that is a rare magical quality for a book.”

NetGalley Review

Black Orchid Girls drew me in from the first page as it started out with a bang…. The descriptions were so vividly written that I had no problem picturing each and every scene in my head.”

The Avid Reader

“This was an absolutely cracking piece of crime fiction, superbly delivered and the ending is surprising. I’m keen to devour book five.”

NetGalley Review

“Carolyn Arnold is a master at penning police procedurals that keep me on my toes, flipping pages, unable to quit reading until the last page is read. Black Orchid Girls was a quick, easy read, filled with heart in my throat suspense and edge of my seat moments that made it unputdownable.”

Fundinmental

“The unveiling of the culprit pulls the reader in, gently revealing layer by layer, until you’re left with the raw reality that someone committed such heinous crimes. Arnold slays with her ability to set the scene with the perfect characters who make it come to life before your very eyes. All five senses were on high alert with this book. FANTASTIC series!”
