“An exciting, action-packed, edge-of-your-seat adventure that constantly has us in suspense… Arnold has written an amazing story, describing everything in detail, giving us a complete picture of Egypt dig sties, heat, desert, underground tombs, mummies, tunnels, snakes, and all kinds of long lost treasures. I loved Matthew, Alex, Robyn and Cal, and the villains in the story were very well done. I look forward to more from the Matthew Connor Adventure series. Carolyn Arnold has created another winner.”
–The Reading Café
Archaeologist Matthew Connor and his friends set off for Egypt in search of the legendary Emerald Tablets when a colleague finds clues to their whereabouts. Given the powers the Tablets are said to possess, the fate of the world hangs in the balance, and there is no time to waste.
“This has been my favorite of the series so far. It kept me up past my bedtime wanting to know how the story was going to play out.”
Sean and Sara can’t turn their backs on their benefactor’s last wish that they investigate a murder. But it’s not going to be that straightforward. They no longer have their detective badges, and the police have already closed the case as a suicide. Of course, their benefactor never agreed with the finding, and they owe it to him to find the truth—and they will—because this murder-solving duo has never backed down from a challenge.
“I thrive on rich characters and TIES THAT BIND did a superb job of capturing the law enforcement partner relationship.”
—Kevin Johnson, Sergeant (Ret.), Minneapolis, MN
Madison Knight is one hard-boiled female detective, so when a case she’s working turns into a hunt for a serial killer, nothing’s going to stop her, not even mounting pressure from her superiors or a distracted partner. She’ll go it alone if she has to.
“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!”

The media is fascinated by Sean and Sara’s story, and it seems the secret is out that they solve murders on the sly. The fact that they retired their badges doesn’t seem to bother the mayor when his daughter goes missing. He seems to think Sean and Sara will get answers faster than the local police, but this is going to take some finesse if they don’t want to step on the toes of their friends in the Albany PD, including their former sergeant.
“Arnold has created a gritty nightmare of a tale that will churn the stomachs of even the most hard-boiled of FBI agents… Full of grit, gore and enough twists to make even the most diligent of readers hard-pressed to discover the villain, even the ending will keep you on pins and needles.”

FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher and his team are called to Savannah, Georgia, when body parts belonging to three separate victims are recovered from the Little Ogeechee River. As the case takes one dark turn after another, Brandon finds himself embroiled in a creepy psychological nightmare.
“For being a novella, there was surprising depth to the story. I would liken this to a standard mystery novel, but with all the sub plots and extraneous stuff cut out. It was short, sweet and to the point.”
–Musings and Ramblings
Sean and Sara’s first case as private investigators takes them to Virginia, where they find themselves going undercover at a coffee company with a robust plot to expose a killer who may be poisoning the beans.
“Gritty and emotionally jagged, Carolyn Arnold’s Power Struggle pours on the suspense as one twisted assassin plays hide-and-go-seek with a detective who refuses to give up, no matter what… Hard-boiled police work at its best, suspense that is taut and the urgent race against time make this an edge-of-your-seat read as danger hits too close to home for this detective…” –Tome Tender Book Blog
