Shades of Justice by Carolyn Arnold Review Tour!

The line between good and evil isn’t always clear…

Detective Madison Knight has risked her badge—and her life—in the pursuit of justice before, and she just might need to do so again. Two victims are found murdered and naked in the home of Steven Malone, who is the largest contributor to the Stiles PD. One victim is his wife. The other victim is a John Doe. This high-profile double homicide immediately pits Madison against her sergeant, who seems more intent on protecting the Malones’ reputation and retaining a benefactor than catching a killer.

Madison will need to pull on her tenacity and courage if she’s going to follow the evidence without prejudice. In the process, it becomes clear that finding justice isn’t always black and white, and often the shades in between tell the fullest story—and it’s not something she will forget anytime soon.

Shades of Justice is a murder mystery with twists and turns that will have readers flipping the pages until the wee hours of the morning. The ninth installment in an international bestselling series, it doesn’t matter if this is the first book you’re reading in the Detective Madison Knight series or not; all the books stand alone!

My Review

Shades of Justice by Carolyn Arnold #9 of the Detective Madison Knight series is not the first I have read in the series, not sure how many. That said, it can be read like a stand-alone novel. I promise!

A woman and a man are found dead at the bottom of a pool, completely naked, bullets in their heads. The woman is quickly identified but the man's identity is unknown. She is Lorene Malone, a rich woman with secrets. Why is a woman murdered with a man other than her husband? Detective Madison Knight along with her partner Detective Terry Grant team up again to solve this murder. 

There is a slew of suspects, from family members to acquaintances, leaves Madison at odds with her Sergeant as Steve Malone, wife of the murdered woman is a huge contributor to the police department of the city Stiles, where the woman lived. So that can make it difficult in trying to figure out and eliminate the many suspects and solve the murders in a professional way.

On a side story, Madison is to be a maid of honor to her best friend, Cynthia, a medical examiner on the case, which along with the case consumes her life including maintaining a relationship with her life partner Troy. There is also an internal investigation into corrupt cops which I am sure will be told in future books as it is never really solved in Shades of Justice. So needless to say there is a lot of things going on, so with long days and sleepless nights, can she move on with the investigation?

I love a strong woman protagonist and Madison is right up there as a woman who knows what she wants and is not easily intimidated. Since she is at odds at times with her Sergeant, she perseveres and with the help of her partner Terry and the understanding of her love Troy, she is able to get to the bottom of this murder and get to the wedding on time also! 

I have read and reviewed a number of Carolyn Arnold novels and liked them and this one was also one I want to read more of the series. Carolyn Arnold is the only author with "POLICE PROCEDURALS RESPECTED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT™" Now what does that tell me? Well, it tells me that she knows her stuff!!  I enjoyed the book and will be reading more by this author.

I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
