The line between good and evil isn’t always clear…

“Tremendous! A double homicide, decadent scandals, and smooth prose—Shades of Justice is the perfect combination of mystery and suspense.” –K.J. Howe, bestselling author of Skyjack

Detective Madison Knight has risked her badge—and her life—in the pursuit of justice before, and she just might need to do so again. Two victims are found murdered and naked in the home of Steven Malone, who is the largest contributor to the Stiles PD. One victim is his wife. The other victim is a John Doe. This high-profile double homicide immediately pits Madison against her sergeant, who seems more intent on protecting the Malones’ reputation and retaining a benefactor than catching a killer.

Madison will need to pull on her tenacity and courage if she’s going to follow the evidence without prejudice. In the process, it becomes clear that finding justice isn’t always black and white, and often the shades in between tell the fullest story—and it’s not something she will forget anytime soon.

Shades of Justice is a murder mystery with twists and turns that will have readers flipping the pages until the wee hours of the morning. The ninth installment in an international bestselling series, it doesn’t matter if this is the first book you’re reading in the Detective Madison Knight series or not; all the books stand alone!

Buy this book now and join the investigation! Uncover clues, follow leads, and catch a killer like hundreds of thousands of readers in this series have done before you. Perfect for fans of James Patterson, Michael Connelly, and JD Robb.

Editorial Review from Readers’ Favorite:


★★★★★

Shades of Justice is a very complex crime novel, suspenseful and filled with surprising twists. The reader hardly knows what to expect as they follow the fearless detective on the hunt for justice and truth. The reader immediately understands, from the complex nature of the crime, that truth can have different layers and different shades. Following Madison as she carries out her investigation is interesting, and a growing feeling of apprehension permeates the entire story.


“Carolyn Arnold uses suspense and the smoothness of the prose to seduce the reader and have their undivided attention as they sail through the gripping pages. The plot opens with a powerful premise and becomes embellished with surprising details. The unpredictability of the plot is one of the key drivers that move this story forward and make it a must-read. A very exciting read for fans of crime thrillers.”

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. 

“Arnold has written one of the best female cops that I’ve ever read… Madison is just one of those characters that will stay with you.” –Harlie’s Books

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.

Detective Madison Knight should have ignored her phone when it rang on Christmas Eve. Now she is spending the holiday dealing with her least favorite thing: a bloody murder scene.

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.

Perfect for fans of James Patterson, Michael Connelly, and JD Robb.

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.

“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.

Perfect for fans of James Patterson, Michael Connelly, and JD Robb.

Eight years ago, a young defense attorney was murdered, shot down in his driveway.

But it’s not just them she has to worry about. As her investigation continues, the body count stacks up, and she uncovers that someone within the upper echelons of the Stiles PD just might be in bed with the Mafia. Assuming she can stay alive long enough, will she have to the courage to expose the corruption and finally close her cold case?
