NBTM, EXCERPT & #GIVEAWAY - On the Count of Three (Brandon Fisher FBI #7) by Carolyn Arnold
On the Count of Three (Brandon Fisher FBI #7) - Carolyn Arnold

And they thought prison was hell…

 

When a woman’s disappearance ticks off all the same boxes as two unsolved murders, Miami homicide detective Kelly Marsh is convinced there’s about to be a third. If she’s right and the killer sticks to their previous MO, she only has three days before Jenna Kelter’s decapitated head will show up somewhere in the city. With no time to waste, Kelly reaches out to the one person she knows can help: her former mentor and family friend Jack Harper, who just happens to lead a team with the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit.

 

BAU special agent and profiler Brandon Fisher easily sees the similarities between Detective Marsh’s missing person case and the two cold cases: all three victims served time for DUI vehicular homicide and disappeared three days after being released from prison. But is that enough to assume Kelter has been abducted by a serial killer? Brandon’s not so sure and fears his boss may have let his personal connection to Marsh cloud his judgment. Surely there isn’t any other explanation for why they jumped into an investigation less than twenty-four hours after Kelter was reported missing. Then again, maybe Brandon is letting his own differences with the detective affect his perspective. He’ll need to move past it, though—and quickly.

 

After all, this killer has evaded capture for the past six years, and they may be looking at a lot more victims than originally suspected. This serial killer is calling the shots and pulling them into a macabre game of cat and mouse. While the team has no choice but to play, if they don’t make the right moves, one of them may not make it out of Miami alive.

Miami Homicide & The BAU Collaborate – On The Count Of Three by Carolyn Arnold @Carolyn_Arnold
On the Count of Three (Brandon Fisher FBI #7) - Carolyn Arnold

 

 

Carolyn Arnold is one of the best procedural novelists I have ever rad, so I was super excited to read On The Count of Three, the seventh novel in the Brandon Fisher FBI series.

 

Publisher:  Hibbert & Stiles Publishing 

 

On the Count of Three (Brandon Fisher FBI #7)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Carolyn Arnold’s attention to detail makes her writing so engrossing, riveting, that once I start, I am unable to stop reading until the last page is read.

 

When the Night called to him, he felt the need to find one who is worthy of his attention. I don’t want him focusing on me. He counts down, preparing to wreak havoc on his victim, “One, Two….saved by the bell, the ringing telephone.

 

Brandon, a special agent with the BAU woke to the ringing phone. His girlfriend Becky is a police officer so she knows the drill. Jack, Brandon, Zack and Paige are a team. But for how long?

I always wonder how long a person can last in such a stressful position as the BAU? When is it time to walk away? Do they all become jaded over time? Inured to the evil they deal with?

 

I wonder how and why the villain chose his gruesome method of murder. Serial killers have a reason for what they do, even if no one else can understand it.

 

I am looking forward to watching Brandon’s growth from a rookie to a seasoned agent. It takes time and training and I am a patient person.

 

I feel the agents pain as they arrive…just a little too late. It’s not all glamour, save the day action. The investigation is thorough and we go through it step by step, watching and learning. The tedium of questioning and more questioning and research. Criminal Minds is an awesome TV show that I watch religiously, but it cannot begin to cover…in realistic terms…what Carolyn Arnold covers in her novels.

 

We are all byproducts of our experiences. It’s what each person chooses to do with those experiences that comes to define them.

 

On The Count Of Three by Carolyn Arnold ends in hope and eagerness to see tomorrow and the next day…

 

She writes some of the best procedural novels I have ever read
