The Defenseless is the latest installment in Arnold's Brandon Fisher FBI series, and as usual she does not disappoint.  From the moment you jump into this fast-paced thriller, prepare to be emotionally torn. What else can be done when the villain's actions are justified, if not even heroic? It creates a paradox only a master writer such as Arnold can utilize. I love the characters in this series...headstrong Brandon, his stubborn potential love interest Paige, and gruff team leader Jack Harper. Watching them entangle while trying to solve the mystery at hand is delightfully entertaining. The story here is a heartbreaking one...a serial killer out to strike revenge against those who abuse animals. It was interesting to see how the agents tangled with their own morality while trying to pursue a killer who, in so many ways, was justified in their actions. But in the end, no one is above the law and the FBI will stop at nothing to find the truth. Once the book begins, it's non-stop action right up until the heartpounding conclusion. You won't want to put it down, and it's guaranteed to tug at your heartstrings.

If you are an animal lover you will find it conflicting to hate the serial killer in this book. The killer calls himself the Advocate of the Defenseless because he takes down men who have killed dogs and he does so by killing them in the same way they killed the dogs. The laws against animal killers usually end with a fine and maybe a time frame in which a new pet can not be obtained. It is a violent story and yet one is compelled to feel like justice is somehow being done.
