Sacrifice (Detective Madison Knight #3)
Author: Carolyn Arnold
Age category: Adult
Release Date: 31 July 2012
Publisher: Hibbert & Stiles Publishing Inc.
Finding justice comes at a high price…
When the son of business tycoon Marcus Randall, washes up on the shore of the Bradshaw River, Detective Madison Knight must sacrifice everything including her career to find justice for the “perfect murder.”
With Marcus Randall already on the radar of the Secret Service for fraud and counterfeiting, the investigation sheds new light and they require the full co-operation of the Stiles PD. But with power and money to back him, Marcus has a reach that extends right inside the police department.
If Madison’s going to find out the truth, she’ll have to sort through the lies and balance diplomacy with politics.
Guest post: It’s Love That Scares Her…
“Madison is what you’d expect from a female cop: tough, tom-boyish, sarcastic, fearless and intensely emotional and dedicated when it comes to her job. And yet she has a vulnerability that Carolyn does a beautiful job of illustrating just when you need to see Madison’s softer side. She’s lonely, as much as she refuses to admit it…” – Katie Jennings – Author of So Fell the Sparrow
Give Detective Madison Knight a dead body and she can handle it. In fact, she loves solving murders and finding justice for the victims and their families. But when it comes to love, Madison would rather avoid the word—and any commitment that comes with it—with her entire being.
Maybe it’s because she’s been hurt before, or maybe it’s because she’s so focused on her job, but I’d go with the former. She’s more vulnerable and lonely than even she might realize. But Madison’s not ready to admit to herself that she needs love and romance.
She believes “her heart was broken for life” when she found her fiancé in bed with another woman. But somehow Blake Golden, a defense attorney, wormed his way into her life. They’ve been dating a few months now, and Blake wants more. But is taking the next step something she’s ready for? And really, aren’t they on two different paths in life? He defends the guilty, and she strives to put them away.
It’s the murder of a local business tycoon’s son that will really test their relationship. Will Madison be willing to look the other way as her boyfriend represents the opposition, or will she cut and run? – Carolyn Arnold – Author of Sacrifice (Detective Madison Knight Series)
