It’s all in the state of mind…

“Not only will this book have your detective skills on alert, but it will have you rooting for Maddy.” —Bookaholic and More Blog

Detective Madison Knight wishes she’d just pulled the trigger and killed the Russian Mafia hit man when she had the chance. But there’s no time machine, no going back. Now’s she’s living in hell, suffering debilitating flashbacks, and not feeling fit to do her job.

But when the suspicious death of a sixty-eight-year-old woman becomes a murder case, it activates Madison’s sense of duty and compulsion to find justice. What she discovers, though, will shake her faith in humanity and remind her that trusting the wrong person can reap harsh consequences. Madison must reach deep inside to find the strength to keep going. If she doesn’t, the killer will walk free, and she’ll risk losing the two things she holds most dear: her badge and her boyfriend.

Editorial Reviews for Deadly Impulse

“This was my first adventure into the world of Carolyn Arnold’s mystery writing, and boy am I impressed! She truly captivates the reader from start to finish…This is one book you won’t be able to put down!”
Little Miss Trainwreck


Deadly Impulse will have your heart pounding and on the edge of your seat. Be warned though…you will get sucked in and you might even finish it in one sitting.”
Crystal, Out There Reviews & Stuff


“This is honestly one of the best books I have read in a while. I love watching Law and Order and Cold Case. I have honestly never read a crime novel and I didn’t think I would like that genre, but this is going to be one of my favorite authors!… This book will have you guessing who the murderer is until the very end! Rating five out of five stars!”
TDC Book Reviews


“The story line really captured my attention… a fun and exciting read and I look forward to reading more in the Detective Madison Knight Series.”
Nanette’s Book Whore-ish Obsessions


“This is book 6 in this series but can be read as a standalone as this was the first book in the series I have read and didn’t feel like I had missed out on some major events like you can in some books… this is a crime/murder investigation book and has a feel of CSI to it. It is fantastically written with amazing attention to detail and clearly the author has a great deal of passion for this subject… For me this is a full on 5-star read. It is everything you would expect out of a book like this.”
2 Girls Who Love Books


“This book immediately grabbed my attention and I was caught up in the story so much that I just did not want to put the book down.  Madison Knight is a cynical, tough as nails detective who hates political game playing and kowtowing to her superiors.  Her attitude can sometimes come across as brash, but she just wants to figure out the case and get justice for the victims.

“I loved Madison – most of the time.  Her straight-arrow partner, Terry is an almost perfect match for her feisty personality.  Terry’s wife is due to deliver their first child and Terry struggles to juggle home and job, even while Madison is facing down her own personal demons while trying to conquer her commitment phobia.

“I am definitely interested in reading the other books in this series.  I love the fact that each book is complete and stands on its own so I can read the series out of order if I choose to.”
—Laurie Jenkins, Laurie’s Thoughts and Reviews


“An intense detective suspense…”
—Nancy Silk, Blogger and Book Reviewer


“Arnold writes with a lot of skill. Scenes flowed very well and it was easy to read and keep track of the investigations…It grips you and you want to help crack the case. You really feel like there are actual crimes and you see how they’d be investigated by real detectives.”
—Amanda, City and Book


“I have read many books with police themes but none had me reading the book in one sitting. Not only will this book have your detective skills on alert but it will have you rooting for Maddy.”
—Bookaholic and More Blog


“This book was great and full of suspense. I absolutely loved the ending…Despite this not being the first book in the series, it did not leave you guessing about things…I found this book to be a great crime read. It was written well.”
—Stormi, Boundless Book Reviews


“This book was amazing from the start. I couldn’t put it down from start to finish.”
—Debbie, D&T’s Love of Books


Deadly Impulse is book number 6 in the Detective Madison Knight Series. If this book is any indication of the rest of the series, I am definitely in!!… Carolyn Arnold has timing, flow, and character development down pat…I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole book.”
—Kris, My Blissful Books


Deadly Impulse had me from the very start… I became a cheerleader for Madison…as she set out to prove that there was more to these murders than a serial killer… I can without a doubt tell you that I did not see the ending coming. I love to try and figure out mysteries before the end but this one even got me. This was by far one of my favorite mystery/romance novels I have read in quite a while. Carolyn Arnold is one author that makes me want to read more from her.”
—Tammy Hall, Tammy’s Tea Time


“It’s hard to be a successful woman in a man’s world. Madison is a stubborn, head strong, determined detective. With her past still threatening to make her buckle under pressure she is trying harder than ever to find the bad guys… I really got sucked into the story line…The plot was interesting and even I was…trying to figure out clues as to who was the murderer. If you enjoy crime/murder mystery than I highly recommend this series.”
