Madison Knight is back in what reviewers are describing as an “exciting police procedural adventure that will leave you turning the pages.”
Here’s my review:
‘Just Cause’ is a gripping, emotional roller coaster through the inner workings of the Russian Mafia and one hardnosed cop’s steadfast determination to get justice. Detective Madison Knight, a favorite of mine from Ms. Arnold’s previous works, is at it again as she risks her own life in her ongoing battle with illustrious Russian mob boss Dimitri Petrov. Though he’s behind bars this time, he remains her greatest foe as she launches into a five-year-old cold case–the murder of Petrov’s lawyer Bryan Lexan. Her pursuit of the truth will land her behind the wrong end of a gun in more than one instance, and this time it may be her last.
Madison squares off not just with Russian thugs in this fast-paced thriller, she also succumbs to her own fears and personal demons. In true Madison fashion, she pushes everyone she loves away for the sake of maintaining her cool, but even her stubborness won’t sustain her for long. Enter a sexy SWAT team officer and we see our Maddy coming beautifully undone. I can’t wait to watch this romance heat up in the next book, along with what might be the deadliest threat Madison has ever faced.
A cold case pits Madison against the Russian Mafia, but things take a swift turn when the unthinkable happens–a new threat arises and has Madison hunting down an unknown killer.
While trying to make sense of the clues, bodies are piling up, and the brass is hungry for explanations. In addition, Madison must balance all of this while nursing an injury, talking out her emotions with a therapist–a bureaucratic necessity–answering to an eager journalist, and facing an internal affairs investigation.
As the answers come together, Madison narrows in on a possible link between the Russian Mafia and someone within the Stiles PD.
Will she have the courage to confront the person she believes is playing both sides, even though they hold a position of great power?
Things are about to be shaken up, and, for Madison, that means she just might have to let go of the past to embrace her future.
