Sometimes the past should stay there…

“It is riddled with suspense, and you will not want to put this book down.” Dialogue with Doris

The beat of the music was thumping and vibrating in her skull. It was getting harder to walk straight, and he offered to take her back to her room. She should have said no. When she woke up, she didn’t remember much. All she knew was that her life would never be the same again.

Ferris Hall was mutilated and left to bleed to death in his Valencia, California, motel room. The murder is one of the most heinous that FBI Special Agent Brandon Fisher has ever seen. And the victim is connected to one of their very own, Special Agent Paige Dawson.

The timing couldn’t be worse for Paige—she’d finally tracked Hall down after years of effort, planning to confront him about his actions from years ago. Hall had been one of several men who’d raped Paige’s friend, and while the statute of limitations has run out and tied the hands of law, Paige wanted to make Hill face the fact he’d destroyed a young woman’s life. Yet, instead of accomplishing her goal, she ends up in the back of a police cruiser.

Now Paige is facing off with a hard-nosed detective determined to stick a murder charge to a Fed. But with the trained eyes of the FBI on Hall’s case, it’s becoming more and more obvious that the evidence lends itself to a serial killing, not an isolated incident. And as long as the local authorities are focused on Paige, the real murderer is still out there. Possibly waiting to strike again.

Editorial Reviews for Violated

“In Arnold’s well-executed fifth Brandon Fisher FBI novel (after 2015’s Blue Baby), FBI agent Paige Dawson becomes embroiled in a case, not as an investigator but as a suspect, when she travels to Valencia, Calif., to seek out Ferris Hall, the man who raped a friend of hers 22 years before in Mexico. Coincidentally, Hall is murdered at a Valencia motel the night before the police discover Dawson entering his house, and she falls under suspicion. Dawson works with seasoned profilers Fisher and Jack Harper to clear her name and also track down the culprit, possibly a serial killer out for vengeance against violent men. The romantic tension between Fisher and Dawson grows as she grapples with residual feelings for her fellow investigator while attempting to pursue a new relationship. Arnold does a good job creating an air of uncertainty surrounding the murder, and the chemistry among her FBI characters is convincing.”

Publishers Weekly

“I was intrigued reading all the legal avenues and resources available for law enforcement. This was a dark read, but it was fun trying to stay a step ahead of the characters. It was certainly not for the squeamish.”

I Create Purty Thangs

“As a big fan of mystery, suspense, crime, etc. (TV and books!), I can’t believe I hadn’t found this series from the start… Frankly, I am a bit disappointed in myself; however, now that I have read the 5th book, I’ll be grabbing up the first four in a heartbeat!… The book was like my first roller coaster ride – wild and full of twists, turns and excitement!”

Lynchburg Mama

“I read this book in record time and I was not a happy camper when it ended. This is a must read book!… I had not heard of the Brandon Fisher FBI series previous to picking up Violated, but dang do I wish I had! (I will be going back and reading the rest.)

“The author specifically states on her website that you can read them in any order or you can go in order that they were written. Frankly, Violated is [the fifth book], and I did not feel like I missed anything that was so incredibly vital that I was lost. I mean, I know there is history, but I didn’t feel lost at all.

Violated was full of [whodunit] and suspense. I felt like I was part of the team working along with them. When they got duped, I got duped. We would figure things out at the same time, allowing me to live within the story.

“I absolutely loved this book and if you are into crime and mysteries – this is a great read! I highly suggest reading this book (and probably the rest of the books!).”

Life as Leels

“This was an incredible story that held my interest from the very first page… Violated by Carolyn Arnold was a top-notch thriller that left me wanting more. I will be reading the earlier books in this series ASAP! If you enjoy police/FBI procedural mystery-thrillers, this is a series you will like.”

Brooke Blogs

“This book is an extraordinary murder mystery. It is riddled with suspense and you will not want to put this book down. While FBI Agent Paige Dawson sets out on a personal mission to confront a man who had raped her friend many years ago, she becomes the focus of his murder investigation, where she is the prime suspect. Her team is working relentlessly to prove her innocence, but the evidence just keeps piling up and pointing towards her. This is a mystery that will keep you speculating where the truth lies…up until the very end.”

Dialogue with Doris

“You will be kept gripped throughout this psychological thriller, turning the pages quickly. An easy read detective novel with very graphic details of the crime scenes. The characters are really brought to life and you can imagine yourself being at each scene in the book through the brilliant descriptions… As this is one of many in a series, I cannot wait for the next one. In the modern age where it is difficult to create original plots and storylines with realistic characters, praise must be given to the author for achieving this.”

Beck Valley Books

Violated is a great mystery that has us on the edge of our seat throughout the book… If you are a fan of murder mysteries, difficult tense crimes, and a great team, then this series is perfect for you.”

The Reading Café

“I’ve not always been big on FBI based stories, as I often find they feel a bit as if they are trying too hard. Other times they seem to throw every possibility and technique into one story, making it just too much, or they go from suspecting no one to solved and don’t really describe how [they] got there. This book was different. I got enough detail to really work through the crime with them, but without overdoing it and making it slow. Each section was given the time necessary to really bring it to life and help you see the scene ever and the evidence, or lack thereof. This book also didn’t try to throw every crime possibility under the sun at you, but instead focused on one very major crime, that happens to land a federal agent behind bars… The author is very talented and was able to throw in twists and turns, to really keep you hooked and keep the story alive.”

Naturalbri Reviews

“From the start, the story picks up speed as Paige is the prime suspect in a murder investigation… Full of surprises, Violated is Carolyn’s best work to date in my opinion. She clearly has done her research and could even pass as an agent herself!”

Out There Reviews & Stuff

Violated was filled with plenty to keep you on the edge of your seat, plenty of twists and turns throughout the book, which I love… If you like thrillers and suspense, then I recommend Violated, and although this is book [five] in the series, you don’t need to have read the others…I’m certainly going to check out past and future books by this author.”

Slyv.net

“OMG! Violated by Carolyn Arnold has been the most thrilling and exciting story that I have read in the longest while. I can’t believe that I have never heard of this author before now…. This is the fifth book in the [Brandon Fisher FBI series] and there is no need to read the previous books prior to reading this one. However, I can assure you that after reading Violated, you will be clamoring to get your hands on the other books in the series.

“When I read the prologue I knew I had to discover how the story would unfold.  It grabbed my attention from that moment and I was disappointed when it came to an end…

“If you love police procedurals and a good mystery you will enjoy this book.”

Totally Addicted to Reading

“If you have ever watched Criminal Minds on television and loved it, you’ll definitely want to pick up Violated. Brandon Fisher is a profiler in the Behavioral Analysis Unit. The book follows his unit as they track a killer but not because the local authorities want help. Because one of the unit is the accused…. On top of the murders that need to be solved, there is tension between Brandon and the accused, Paige. They had been involved at one point in time, but Paige has a new friend who accompanies her on her vacation to California. The triangle that these three form makes for more tension in the book than just the trouble solving a gruesome murder… I definitely recommend picking up Violated.”

Nicki’s Nook

“This is one fast read–and one I won’t soon forget.”

Miki’s Hope

“This is the first of the [Brandon Fisher FBI series] that I’ve read, and I can’t wait to go back and read the previous books!… Arnold has a wonderful way of describing her characters and her story. While some of the descriptions were gory, I felt that they were necessary for the story development, so that you truly understood what the [agents] were seeing and feeling… This book has so many twists and turns! Once you start reading it be prepared for a wild ride!”

Sanity is for those without children

“Arnold touches on a subject relevant to the times with enough twists and turns to keep any reader turning page after page. The plot rushes forward at a quickening pace and comes to a surprising conclusion. It is one I did not see coming.”

Marianne Spitzer

Bestselling author

“What the heck did I just read!!??!!  This is part of a series but yet I felt that this can be read as a stand alone.  But I must read the rest of the series too!  This is a seat gripper!  Not a book that you’ll be able to lay down easily.  A page turner, a promise that you’ll finish up one more page and find yourself another chapter in!  This is a MUST read!”
