Eleven Rooms. Ten Bodies. One Empty Grave.

In this international bestseller, rookie FBI Agent Brandon Fisher takes on his first case with the Behavioral Analysis Unit, but will he survive long enough to catch the killer? Eleven is a fast-paced, spine-tingling thriller that will have you gasping for breath at every twist…

When Brandon Fisher joined the FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit, he knew he’d come up against psychopaths, sociopaths, pathological liars, and more. But when his first case takes him and the team to Salt Lick, Kentucky, to hunt down a ritualistic serial killer, he learns what nightmares are truly made of.

Beneath a residential property, local law enforcement discovered an underground bunker with circular graves that house the remains of ten victims. But that’s not all: there’s an empty eleventh grave, just waiting for a corpse. The killing clearly hasn’t come to an end yet, and with the property owner already behind bars, Brandon is certain there’s an apprentice who roams free.

As the FBI follows the evidence across the United States, Brandon starts to struggle with the deranged nature of his job description. And if the case itself isn’t going to be enough to push Brandon over the edge, he’s working in the shadow of Supervisory Special Agent Jack Harper, who expects nothing short of perfection from his team. To make matters even worse, it seems Brandon has become the target of a psychotic serial killer who wants to make him—or his wife—victim number eleven.

Remnants

Brandon Fisher FBI Series #6

Remnants Large Print Edition by Carolyn Arnold

Savannah, Georgia used to be a tranquil tourist destination—until human body parts started floating down the river.

FBI Agent Brandon Fisher trusts his team with his life—or at least he did.

It’s only been six months since Brandon’s boss almost died at the hands of a serial killer when the team is called to Savannah, Georgia. Human limbs have been pulled from the Little Ogeechee River—not from one, but from three separate male victims. As more remains surface and the victim count rises, the hunt for an active serial killer begins.

Establishing a profile on the killer isn’t proving easy, though, and it’s not until a peculiar discovery that the FBI gets a break in the case. If they’re right about their theory, they’ll need to convince the Deep South to give up her secrets to catch a killer. Only thing is, will the process stir up vivid memories for the agent in charge and compromise the team’s safety?

On the Count of Three

Brandon Fisher FBI Series #7

On the Count of Three Large Print Edition by Carolyn Arnold

Drinking and driving may be deadly in more ways than one…

FBI Special Agent Brandon Fisher and his team join forces with Miami PD Detective Kelly Marsh to find a missing woman Kelly believes was taken by a serial killer.

From their first meeting, Brandon sees the detective as competition, and this isn’t helped by the personal history she shares with his boss. Brandon sees the similarities between Detective Marsh’s missing person case and the two cold cases: all three victims served time for vehicular homicide while driving under the influence and disappeared three days after being released from prison—but is that enough to assume the woman has been abducted by a serial killer? Brandon’s not so sure and fears his boss may have let his personal connection to Marsh cloud his judgment. Surely there isn’t any other explanation for why they jumped into an investigation less than twenty-four hours after the missing persons report was filed. Then again, maybe Brandon is letting his own differences with the detective affect his perspective. If he can’t pull himself together, the missing woman may pay with her life—and one of the team may not make it out of Miami alive.

Ties That Bind

Detective Madison Knight Series #1

Ties that Bind Large Print Edition by Carolyn Arnold jogger’s feet on asphalt surface with police tape over it faded over an image of a check pattern tie

Three victims. One method. One motive.

Grab a badge and a gun and strap in for a ride that’s “full of suspense from the beginning to the end…” (Readers Abode). When dead bodies start piling up, Detective Madison Knight suspects that her city has a serial killer—but the quest for justice isn’t going to be an easy one. Everyone—including her own partner, her sergeant, and the police chief—are working against her. 

A woman is found strangled in her bed, and Detective Madison Knight doesn’t think it’s anything more than an isolated incident. But when another woman’s body is discovered in a park, killed with the same brand of neckties, she can’t ignore the similarities between the two murders. Still, it’s not until a third victim surfaces that Madison really starts to fear the worst: the city of Stiles just may have a serial killer.

Catching the murderer isn’t going to be easy, though. She’s facing pressure from the sergeant and the chief to close the case—even if it means putting an innocent man behind bars—and a partner who is more interested in saving his marriage than doing his job. If there’s justice to be had, Madison may have to go this alone.

One murdered entrepreneur, and everyone’s a suspect.

“Outstanding plot, unique twists and turns, and the writing style is superb…I highly recommend for crime and mystery fans.” —Nancy Silk, Book Reviewer

The victim, Claire Reeves, was a successful entrepreneur and had it all—sex appeal, intelligence, and money—but it seems that one of those things may have caught up with her. Now, Madison and her partner are digging through the victim’s personal life, but the more they dig, the more people they find who had motive to kill her. It’s certainly a case of too many suspects, too little time, but Madison is determined to find Claire’s killer and make sure justice is served.

“An intense, thrilling page-turner sure to satisfy any fan of the [crime] genre.” –Rosa St. Clair, Book Reviewer

When a young man washes up on the shore of the Bradshaw River, Detective Madison Knight and her partner are called in to investigate. But the case takes a complicated turn when he’s identified as the son of local business tycoon Marcus Randall. As one of the wealthiest and most influential men in the city, he has a lot of connections, and one of them just happens to be the police chief.

Madison and Chief McAlexandar have butted heads before, but with this case, Madison’s drive and determination to find the truth just might cost her the badge she worked so hard to get. After all she’s got her eye on Randall, despite the chief’s protests, but she’s not the only one. The Secret Service is after him for suspicion of fraud and counterfeiting, and they want Madison’s full cooperation to aid their investigation.

Stuck between the chief and one of the most powerful men in the city of Stiles isn’t the ideal place to be, but Madison has no choice but to risk it all—if justice is to be served.

She wanted to leave her past behind, but it may have followed her…

“A gripping thriller with non-stop action throughout. If you love crime dramas, mysteries, and a tough, female cop, this series is not to be missed.” –The Reading Café

A young woman’s remains are found in a shallow grave, and as Detective Madison Knight and her partner follow the clues, they find a connection between her murder and a death ruled as a suicide. It puts Madison in a difficult situation—she suspects the first victim was killed as well. In order to unearth the truth, she may need to cross the line most cops wouldn’t dare and report a fellow officer for mishandling a case.

 Doing so only becomes more complicated when that officer turns out to be Madison’s ex-fiancé, and he has more on his mind than a mark on his record. He wants Madison back. But all she wants is justice for the victims. And if that means jeopardizing departmental relationships and churning up the attention of an old flame, so be it—because if she doesn’t, the guilty may be found innocent.

Assuming she can stay alive long enough, will she have to the courage to expose the corruption and finally close her cold case?

City of Gold

Matthew Connor Adventure series #1

City of Gold Large Print Edition by Carolyn Arnold panting of the legendary city of gold with waterfalls and greenery

Finding the Incas’ lost City of Gold would be the discovery of a lifetime. But failing could mean her death…

Archaeologist Matthew Connor and his friends Cal and Robyn are finally home after a dangerous retrieval expedition in India. While they succeeded in obtaining the priceless Pandu artifact they sought, it almost cost them their lives. Still, Matthew is ready for the next adventure. Yet when new intel surfaces indicating the possible location of the legendary City of Gold, Matthew is hesitant to embark on the quest.

Not only is the evidence questionable but it means looking for the lost city of Paititi far away from where other explorers have concentrated their efforts. As appealing as making the discovery would be, it’s just too risky. But when Cal’s girlfriend, Sophie, is abducted by Matthew’s old nemesis who is dead-set on acquiring the Pandu statue, Matthew may be forced into action. Saving Sophie’s life means either breaking into the Royal Ontario Museum to steal the relic or offering up something no one in his or her right mind would refuse—the City of Gold.

Now Matthew and his two closest friends have to find a city and a treasure that have been lost for centuries. And they only have seven days to do it. As they race against the clock, they quickly discover that the streets they seek aren’t actually paved with gold, but with blood.

In Egypt’s Western Desert lies the tomb of an unnamed pharaoh that hides a secret so powerful, it could destroy the world as we know it.

Archaeologist and adventurer Matthew Connor has made a career of finding legends the world has all but forgotten. Though there’s one in particular that has fascinated him for years—the Emerald Tablets.

So when a former colleague stumbles across an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic map that promises to lead to a pharaoh’s tomb and the Emerald Tablets, there’s no way he’s turning down her invitation to join the dig. He only has one stipulation: his best friends Robyn Garcia and Cal Myers come with him.

The road ahead isn’t going to be an easy one, and their shared dream of recovering the Emerald Tablets is being crushed at every turn. And just when they think it’s all over, they learn there are a few clues they have overlooked. But they’re no longer the only ones searching for the Tablets. Now, the fate of the world hangs in the balance, and soon they’ll find out that when it comes to hunting legends, they can’t trust anyone.

The beam of his flashlight bounces off the walls but does little to brighten the hidden room he just found. In the corner is a centuries-old desk. His heart hammering, he walks over to it and opens the top drawer. What he finds inside will change his future—and the world’s—forever.

For centuries, the existence of Spanish pirate José Gaspar has been relegated to legend, but archaeologist and adventurer Matthew Connor and his two best friends may have just found reason to believe the buccaneer truly existed. They’re in Washington, DC, to mark the opening of an exhibit at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History when a mysterious stranger turns up claiming he may hold the key to the mythical pirate’s treasure and invites them to join in his quest to find it.

There’s an interested third party, and they’re willing to kill for the pirate’s bounty.

What ensues is a globe-trotting adventure that will take Matthew and his friends across the world and back again. Danger lurks around every corner as does betrayal, suspicion, and murder. Can anyone be trusted, and will they survive long enough to find out?

“I just have fallen in love with this series. It just keeps getting better and better and very entertaining. Suspense and a mystery/murder is what keeps me wanting more!” –Books, Dreams, Life

Sean and Sara McKinley’s popularity as a murder-solving duo has gained momentum since they retired from the Albany Police Department. As guests on a local television show, they meet reporter Reanne Mable, the sister-in-law of Albany’s Mayor Davenport. When an introduction is made, it turns out the mayor is looking for a favor from the McKinleys: his daughter has gone missing from her university campus, and he wants them to find her. Only thing is the police are already on the case, and the McKinleys don’t want to step on any toes. With that said, they also know the fate of the girl shouldn’t be up for debate and decide to undertake a covert operation.

But being in politics has brought Davenport his share of enemies, and as Sean and Sara come to realize, bringing Halie home safe may be more difficult than they’d imagined—and fraught with far more danger.

While Sean is suspicious of the woman’s true identity and her motives, Sara opens her heart to the woman. But when a dead body turns up soon after Sara’s supposed mother takes off without so much as a goodbye, they both must question the truth.

This is the perfect mystery to sink into… Keeps you in suspense and turning the pages until the surprising climax.” –Bixler Reviews

The busiest shopping day of the year should be all about the discounts, but Sean and Sara’s trip to the mall brings them a murder to solve. Though the police think the man purposely took a flying leap from the second level to the concourse, the widow is adamant her husband would never have done that. But it’s Sara’s past connection with the widow that has the McKinleys looking into the matter.

The answers aren’t coming quickly—not with mall security dropping the ball and no seeming motive for murder. If the McKinleys are going to find out the truth, it will take unconventional means, a little undercover work, and the help of their friend Sergeant Jimmy Voigt. If they’re lucky, they just might get this case wrapped up in time for the holidays. Maybe even with a pretty little bow.

Coffee is Murder

McKinley Mysteries #9

Coffee is Murder Large Print Edition  by Carolyn Arnold

A cup a day won’t kill you, but a few might.

“Very pleasant reading…with enjoyable characters, some twists and a little romanticism… Ideal [for] beach reading and for those who love the cozy mystery.” – LibriAmoriMiei

Their first case as private investigators have Sean and Sara McKinley neck-deep in coffee beans, trying to find a killer. With their client certain that her mother was poisoned through her coffee-of-the-month club, it has them setting out to Williamsburg, Virginia, to visit Tasty Beans headquarters. The problem is their New York PI licenses don’t carry any weight in the state of Virginia, so it forces Sean and Sara to improvise. They’re going to have to brew one robust plot to get themselves on the inside, and they just might have to stir their friend Jimmy into the blend if they’re going to have any hope of grinding out a killer.

Skiing is Murder

McKinley Mysteries #10

Skiing is Murder Large Print Edition  by Carolyn Arnold

They’re ready to hit the slopes…when things go downhill.

“Filled with colorful characters and an intriguing mystery…Skiing is Murder is a fine addition to an established series and can be enjoyed on its own.” Queen of All She Reads

Sean and Sara are supposed to have a relaxing vacation in Vail, but it all goes up in a puff of powder when there’s a suspicious death on the mountain. Sara’s not about to let rumor and local police conclude that Adrian Blackwell, a two-time Olympic skiing gold medalist, died in a skiing accident. She’s certain he was far too skilled for that to have happened and does her best to convince Sean to investigate what really took place.

Sean might have been able to refuse, but when Adrian’s agent contacts their private investigation firm in Albany, New York, to look into Adrian’s death, Sean’s curiosity is piqued. The course ahead isn’t going to be an easy one, though. The McKinleys will need to traverse moguls standing between them and the truth. The biggest obstacle is that their New York State PI licenses hold no legal authority in Colorado. But they’ve faced this challenge before. It will just involve some creativity and undercover stunts, all while trying to dodge the local police.

Halloween is Murder

McKinley Mysteries #11

Halloween is Murder Large Print Edition  by Carolyn Arnold a cartoon woman dressed as a witch in purple with a haunted house in the background

Beware of all that goes bump in the night…

Sean and Sara McKinley are excited about the haunted house they’ve set up as a Halloween charity fund-raiser, but things take a ghoulish turn when the reporter covering their story is found dead. With the media keeping mum about how she died, Sara’s curiosity is piqued, and she convinces Sean to take on the investigation.

With the police actively investigating and with no clear indication that the woman was murdered, the McKinleys will need to take a cloak-and-dagger approach if they’re going to carve out the truth. As they troll for leads and work through the skeletons in the reporter’s closet, they unearth a few suspects. If they’re able to narrow them down fast enough, there might even be time for a little trick-or-treating.

Exercise is Murder

McKinley Mysteries #12

Exercise is Murder Large Print Edition by Carolyn Arnold a cartoon woman jogging in a park

Getting in shape isn’t an easy walk in the park…

Running junkie Katie Carpenter takes a tumble down a ravine and ends up facedown in the Hudson River. The police conclude her death was an accident, but those who were close to Katie aren’t buying that she just tripped and fell—including her pro-athlete boyfriend. But it’s Katie’s fitness trainer and friend who hires the McKinleys to investigate.

Anything but an easy case to solve, Sean and Sara will break a sweat trying to figure out who had the most to gain from the young woman’s death. Sadly for Sean most of the evidence seems stacked against Katie’s boyfriend—a man Sean idolizes. Can he put aside being starstruck long enough to view things objectively? If Katie’s killer is going to be caught, he and Sara will need to remain flexible and it might require bending the rules a bit.
