The Detective Madison Knight series turns ten years old this month! It’s hard to believe readers have been enjoying her stories for that length of time already! But these books are timeless for anyone who loves to sink their teeth into a solid police procedural. If you haven’t met Madison yet, then now is definitely the time. With a total of ten books in the series—book eleven due out later 2021—there is a lot for readers to binge on!
Today, I’m spotlighting Shades of Justice, book nine in the series. This one was inspired by a double murder in Toronto, Ontario, though the facts of the case vary greatly!
Readers can find Shades of Justice from popular retailers in e-book, paperback (various sizes), hardcover, and large-print edition.
Enjoy the excerpt from Shades of Justice, Chapter 3:
“I’m warning you, Knight. Handle the situation with discretion.”
“I’ll do my job.” That was all she could promise. Justice rarely came without a struggle, without ruffling feathers and making enemies.
“I’m not sure if that’s supposed to comfort me, but I guess it’s where I’m at. Just keep me posted every step of the way.”
“Sure,” she said.
“I want to hear you tell me that you’ll communicate with this case.”
“I’ll communicate with this case,” she parroted in the tone of a rebellious teenager who says whatever necessary to appease a parent.
“Good.” Winston left the atrium.
She leaned in toward Terry. “That man bugs the hell out of me.”
“I’d say the feeling’s mutual.”
She shrugged that off as a victory. At least she wasn’t the only one suffering in their imposed relationship. Regardless of their feelings toward each other, she wasn’t going to let the sergeant tie her hands with political bullshit. She’d do whatever it took to find the killer and get justice for two people—even if it meant getting on Winston’s bad side. She’d been there, done that, and she’d be there again. She might even live there. Conflict with the male brass was the circle of life.
