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?
What We Bury by Carolyn Arnold
(Detective Madison Knight, #10)
Carolyn Arnold isn’t afraid to make her main character, Madison Knight flawed, but she does so without creating a weak character, but rather a stronger, more human heroine with real life issues that go beyond her detective work.
Welcome to Madison’s world, one of death, of the cruelties one human can bestow on another, of raw cases that are like finding a needle in a haystack. Through it all, she must separate her determination to find justice with her personal life, which is also chaotic. Now she must think outside the box and venture into the dark shadows of a city held captive by crime and corruption with only one clue left by the murder victim.
Once again, Carolyn Arnold lets the dirt fly in WHAT WE BURY and once again, this hard-boiled mystery will have readers hooked on solving the case from start to finish.
