“Masterful, gripping writing! Would make a thrilling movie!”
–Betty Dravis, Award-winning author and journalist

“You just want to don a badge and gun and delve in there yourself… The characters are real, honest, and gritty, and the ‘baddies’ get under your skin...”
–The Kindle Book Review

“Must devour… As the story unraveled and clues unfolded, I felt like I was participating in the hunt as much as the agents in the story. And let me tell you, never did I see that ending coming…”
–Consuming Words

Eleven Rooms. Ten Bodies. One Empty Grave.

When Brandon Fisher joined the FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit, he knew he’d come up against psychopaths, sociopaths, pathological liars, and more. But when his first case takes him and the team to Salt Lick, Kentucky, to hunt down a ritualistic serial killer, he learns what nightmares are truly made of.

Beneath a residential property, local law enforcement discovered an underground bunker with circular graves that house the remains of ten victims. But that’s not all: there’s an empty eleventh grave, just waiting for a corpse. The killing clearly hasn’t come to an end yet, and with the property owner already behind bars, Brandon is certain there’s an apprentice who roams free.

As the FBI follows the evidence across the United States, Brandon starts to struggle with the deranged nature of his job description. And if the case itself isn’t going to be enough to push Brandon over the edge, he’s working in the shadow of Supervisory Special Agent Jack Harper, who expects nothing short of perfection from his team. To make matters even worse, it seems Brandon has become the target of a psychotic serial killer who wants to make him—or his wife—victim number eleven.

It would seem that this author has no understanding of the inner workings of the real FBI. Nor does the author appear to have actually consulted with real FBI Agents. Just did not do the proper research to make the characters more believable. Otherwise it would have been a great read.

I really liked this book. The author does a good job in getting you hooked early on and then keeping your attention through every page. The book is mostly written through the perspective of the main character, with a few chapters here and there from other view points. These different view points are nice because they fill in little bits of the story and keep you wondering who the next person is to die and who is going to do it. The author does a good job of not solving the mystery till the very end and even then the book ends with action. If the rest of her books are like this I will continue to read them.

Excellent writing and characters. I do not think Brandon would have passed the psych eval at the academy. Too hot headed and impulsive. The obsession with cigarettes became very distracting and annoying after awhile. I hope this theme does not carry into her other books. Overall I enjoyed the story and the characters. Very suspenceful.

She made the FBI look like characters from 24. They do not operate the way she portrays them.

3 1/2 stars. Not as bad as some reviewers made it to be. More a man's book. 315 pages. Free. Free standing. Part of a series. Some rough langauge and quite a bit of violence. For adults. The reviewer who compared this book to Criminal Minds was correct. Overall, it was an entertaining read. It would have been nice to know a little bit more about the characters. They seemed a little flat. AD

I really enjoyed this book, I had a hard time putting it down. When I reached the last fifty pages, I had to finish it.

main character seems somewhat immature + tempramental at first - doubt he would have made it through the FBI Academy!! Also, cannot get past rookie mistake at end that 2 characters debate over, knowing they were in the wrong. That was just stupid, + it ruined the end of the book for me. Still, I recommend this book if you can look past a few flaws. D from C

Good premise, engaging characters. But missing commas forced me to reread sentences to get the meaning and paragraph indentation needs to be more than one space for readability.

I liked the book fine but about 3/4 through, started experiencing blank pages and could not move forward without jumping ahead 2 or 3 pages so although I got the jest of who dunnit, didn't get to read the final chapter or epilog. Very disappointing!

This is comparable to Silence of the Lambs. Very well written with unimagined twists and turns that kept your interest and motivated you not to put the book down.

ELEVEN was a crime thriller about a very intelligent and well organized criminal with a very twisted mind. I look forward to reading the next book in this crime series. Jazz Dee

First, I would grab this book because it was written by Carolyn Arnold. Second, I have been reading her work for a while now, and I now she won’t disappoint my, but she may blow my mind. Third, SHE DID! Carolyn Arnold’s novels read like Criminal Minds episodes. I love how she breaks down the crimes and the criminals, taking us through the process, step by step, clue by clue. And this is one mystery that keeps on giving. I was super creeped out early and it never stopped. I wonder where Carolyn came up with the idea for Eleven. Is she smoking something? Salt Lick. Kentucky. Underground. Creepaliciously gruesome and I feel chills running up and down my spine just writing this. Eleven, the symbol of purity, but I sure don’t see it here. Focus, analyze, and be objective is what is required and Brandon is thankful for the training that allowed him to do exactly that, especially in the current circumstances. This is Brandon’s first case with the Behavioral Analysis Unit of the FBI. His coworkers ride him, calling him Kid, Pending and Slingshot. We watch Brandon grow and learn as he works under Jack, a Supervisory Special Agent. Danger strikes too close for comfort, but he slowly learns to keep control of his emotions, or he would be useless to the investigation. His first case, and it is a horrific one. WOW…I am only at 28% and the story is so intense, I wonder how I will make it to the end. Do I cheat and peak? NO! Don’t do it. It would ruin everything. It is the anticipation, the awful, sickening journey that makes it all worthwhile. I will savor the threats and danger. I will crawl around underground with them…there go those shivers again. There is so much more of the story to come, I can’t imagine what surprises are in store for me, but Carolyn’s ability to write with suspense and make her characters seem so real that at times I forget this isn’t a true story, is one journey I know I won’t regret.. The killer they are looking for is just out of reach. They will get there, but will it be in time? There is more than one life at stake. Stories and scenes that happen underground really freak me out. I shivered and cringed my way to the end and loved every minute of it! If you love mystery, thrills and suspense of the highest caliber, this is a must read and Carolyn Arnold is an author you want to follow. I anticipate many more horrific stories to come. Bring it on, Carolyn! “You have one great weakness.” “You’re too positive.” “You think we catch all the bad guys, that we can stop the evil in the world.” “You believe in hope even when there is none.” I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Eleven by Carolyn Arnold.
