From popular author Carolyn Arnold, ‘Silent Graves’ brings back a character that readers have called “fascinating” and “complex” – rookie FBI agent, Brandon Fisher. As Fisher’s team take on a serial killer of epic proportions, the agent battles with his own demons, the rising tension between him and a colleague, and the realization that this killer’s crimes rival anything they’ve ever seen.
Toronto, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/13/2014 -- With the release of Arnold’s new book, ‘Silent Graves’ – sequel to ‘Eleven’, the author welcomes readers on a journey into the darkness and introduces a killer who will have women locking their doors.
When a wealthy businessman’s wife goes missing and the FBI is called in to investigate, Brandon Fisher and his team get the case. They begin the agonizing task of identifying a murderer and stopping him before it’s too late. With mounting horror, Fisher and his colleagues realize that the recent abduction is just the beginning – women have been vanishing at an astonishing rate – and this is case dates back decades.
Unusual and truly terrifying, ‘Silent Graves’ is a tour de force that will have Arnold’s legion of fans leaving the lights on as they read through into the dead of night. As one reader wrote, Arnold’s work is “unputdownable.”
Thirty missing women in the period of six years. Now another has been abducted.
One officer was right all along. Prince William County, Virginia has a serial killer preying on women.
With the recent abduction, the FBI is called in and Brandon Fisher's team gets the assignment. There is more to it than just one missing woman—this dates back decades. They delve into the past cases, hoping it will shed light on the investigation, but with the discovery of a body and the report of another missing woman, their efforts are further intensified. They begin narrowing in on the cases from the last six years.
What they find are heinous acts that rival what they witnessed in Salt Lick, Kentucky. They must stop a killer who plays out his twisted game of rape and torture—and they need to do so fast if there's going to be anyone left to save.
As the author explains, she isn’t content to simply write great suspense novels – instead, she puts the focus on what she knows her readers expect from her books – uniqueness.
“Many books focus on the experienced detectives – you know, those who have been with the force or the Bureau for years and have seen it all,” says Arnold. “With Brandon Fisher readers get to know him as he’s just starting out. He’s still in his probationary period. There’s a certain sense of urgency that comes from having to prove yourself and Fisher has the needed determination.”
Since its release, the book has received glowing reviews from readers.
Calling the book “simply great”, Alan Ballantyne wrote: “There's the usual banter between Jack, the head of the FBI team and Brandon plus the sexual tension between Brandon and Paige carries on right up until the very end where the author leaves you guessing what the next installment will bring. Being a huge fan of Carolyn Arnold I have no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone. This series is an absolute gem.”
