Sometimes the past should stay there…
"A top-notch thriller." –Brooke Blogs
Violated explores the cost of revenge and not letting go of the past. Wickedly clever, you won't want to put this killer thriller down.
FBI Agent Brandon Fisher and his team jet off to California to try and prove the innocence of a fellow agent suspected of murder.
Agent Paige Dawson's sole purpose for going to Valencia was to confront the man who raped her friend twenty-some years ago. When he turns up brutally murdered in a motel room, she's the lead detective's prime suspect. What Brandon and the rest of the team need to figure out is whether Paige was at the wrong place at the wrong time or whether she took revenge into her own hands. As the FBI team works to vindicate Paige, the lines start to blur, and doubts enter in, but Brandon fears entertaining them for too long. After all, the real killer could be out there, ready to strike again.

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. (BookLife)

Good read. Characters you become friends with, story moves at a great pace, hard to put down!
Up until Violated, the last few books I started was just that. I started them, but couldn’t get into them since the Eriksson series from LS Sygnet—I bought every single book in the series and will do the same with the Brandon Fisher FBI series by Carolyn Arnold. The only thing I would change about this series is the tense. Brandon speaks in the first person, while the rest of the story is narrative, which can be confusing if you’re not reading straight through. It would be interesting if the author would have the core characters tell their story, thoughts and feelings from their point of view by labeling each chapter by the characters name. Or to write it all as a narrative. But that’s just me.
***I read Eleven over a year ago, and missed the books in between—even though I’m buying after this review. Even though it’s part of a series, it’s a great stand-alone novel.xx
