“Arnold has written one of the best female cops that I’ve ever read.” ~ Harlie’s Books
The hunt for a new house turns into a hunt for a killer in What We Bury (Detective Madison Knight Series). When it came time to write this book, the inspiration came from my own experience searching for a house. I thought the discovery of a body at an open house would make for an interesting premise on which to build a story as Madison and her boyfriend Troy have decided to find somewhere else to live. Can you really imagine being an agent, showing up to get a house ready to show, and discovering a dead body? No thanks! Well, not in real life, but I think it makes for interesting fiction. 😊
But just as in reality, there are things that happen unexpectedly in this book. Whenever I set out to write, there’s an energy to each and every book that belongs to it alone. What We Bury was no different, and what happens to Madison and Troy in this book will change everything moving forward! It was a shift I never anticipated—not by a long shot. But you’ll need to read the book to find out what that is…

Here’s what the book is about:
Some secrets are worth killing to protect…
She’s dying, and she knows it. If only she can stay alive long enough to leave one last message. As the rain beats against the metal roof, she uses her blood-soaked fingertip to scrawl on the floorboards… The letters GB.
Detective Madison Knight has been house hunting, but a call from her real estate agent has nothing to do with finding the perfect property. She’s found a woman’s body, stabbed multiple times. Madison arrives on scene and is presented with an unknown Jane Doe and two letters written in blood. There’s no murder weapon, and it seems Doe was attacked somewhere else.
As Madison works to find justice for the victim, Madison’s own life is put at risk. What she comes to discover is some people will go to extreme lengths to protect their secrets—even as far as murder. But will learning that lesson come too late for her?
