Brilliantly written and enthralling action-packed thriller! This is my first experience reading Carolyn Arnold’s Brandon Fisher series – now, I’m a fan for life! Excellent character development and vivid descriptions in this police procedural tale of a mentally disturbed serial killer, involving the abductions/killings of at least thirty women spanning decades, kept me wanting to read more.   I’m thoroughly intrigued with Brandon and his fellow team members, discovering their distinct personalities and inter-personal relationships with each turn of the page.  Following the intricate clues, thoughtful detective work and mystery threads throughout, the dialogue and scenes flowed seamlessly, logically and crisply.  I can’t wait to read the next in this series!  I received an ARC copy of this for review and I highly recommend it!

Well written. Characters are well developed, as is the story line. Each of the books stands on its own but segues nicely into the sequel. I will continue to read the series.

Silent Graves by Carolyn Arnold is the 2nd book in her Brandon Fisher FBI series. This series revolves around Brandon Fisher, who is a young FBI agent still on probation in the Special Cases division, BAU (Behavioral Analysis Unit. Their cases are usually dark violent cases, such as serial killers. In Silent Graves, the team (Brandon, Jack (his boss), Paige, & Zachary) are called into a case of a missing women, and when they are notified about a body being found in a small town in Virgina, they travel there to investigate. Soon they begin to suspect that the missing woman, & the body just found are the result of a serial killer, which upon further investigation begins to add up to 30 missing women, most within the past years. When another woman is kidnapped, the case is escalated to try and find the killer before he kills them. What follows is a terrifying story of a mentally disturbed killer, whom Arnold also gives a POV that allows us into his dark maniacal mind, and to those he tortures. We do get mostly Brandon’s POV, as he tries to prove to his boss Jack that he belongs on the team and should be off probation. However, Brandon has his own private issues dealing with these horrific type of cases, which haunt him. But he is a very good agent, as he helps put together the complex clues with the rest of the team. Carolyn Arnold does a fantastic job of putting this story together, with the complexity of the clues, findings, twists and surprises, which she excels in. Carolyn’s knowledge of Police procedural is amazing, and she does this so flawlessly to precise perfection. There isn’t a moment that is used with fluff. It is all tense and terrifying, as the story slowly unravels. I do not want to give any spoilers, other then to say this was a race to the finish exciting climax. Carolyn Arnold is a wonderful writer, who has the ability to put you right in the middle of tense violent storyline. It is important to note, that this is a graphic violent storyline, that had me at times tense and depressed; it is very realistic and if you do not like this type of book it might not be for you. But if you enjoy these types of stories, then you must read Silent Graves.

This is my first time experiencing the Brandon Fisher FBI series, but it definitely won't be my last. I instantly fell in love with Brandon and his stubborn, tough guy nature. He's very much how I'd imagine an FBI agent would be: strong, intelligent, capable and daring. He doesn't take no for an answer and never backs down from what he thinks is right. In the case of Silent Graves, there were many instances where he was on a different page than his team and yet he continued to follow his gut to help find the killer. The story itself is a twisted, violent, dark tale of a serial rapist/murderer targeting women over a thirty year period. It becomes clear that there's more to the crimes than just blatant bloodlust as more and more missing women are lumped into this killer's resume. From the second I started reading up until the very end, I was glued to my Kindle. Non-stop action gives this novel a live pulse that beats faster and faster with each turn of the page. I lived and breathed the case as if I were a part of it, which is a testament of a great crime/thriller author. All of the supporting characters were done exceptionally well, and I loved the tense interactions between Brandon and Paige, who have a romantic history that never quite sated itself. It gave this otherwise purely thriller novel a softer, more human element that coupled well with the dark, violent scenes of the killer and his victims. Overall, a fantastic read for anyone who enjoys gritty crime thrillers. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
