Présentation de l'éditeur

Detective Madison Knight concluded the case of a strangled woman an isolated incident. But when another woman's body is found in a park killed with the same line of neckties, she realizes they're dealing with something more serious.

Despite mounting pressure from the Sergeant and Chief to close the case even if it means putting an innocent man behind bars, and a partner who is more interested in saving his marriage than stopping a potential serial killer, Madison may have to go it alone if there's not going to be another victim.


Ties that Bind is the 1st book the best-selling police procedural Madison Knight Series.

Approximately 77,000 words

**Includes a preview of JUSTIFIED, the 2nd in the Madison Knight series and a #1 Kindle Best Seller in the Police Procedural genre on Amazon**

POLICE PROCEDURALS RESPECTED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT.
TM

"Usually it's hard for me to read cop books without picking them apart but once I started this one I couldn't put it down. TIES THAT BIND was more realistic than anything I've ever read and for the entire book I felt like it was me. The way Carolyn wrote Madison describes me and the way I work and even my personal life to a t. I have never felt more connected to a character. Thank you for creating something so real."
Deputy Rebecca
Hendrix, LeFlore County Sheriff's Department

Poteau, Oklahoma

"I related to this story immediately. It is truly believable in its writing as it is vivid. I felt a kinship with the main character and that continued throughout the story. Well written and I am looking forward to more in the series. Highly recommended."
Richard Goodship,
Police Officer and Forensic Investigator (Ret.)

Ontario, Canada

"Coming from an author that is not in Law Enforcement, I was extremely impressed by the amount of research she must have done. From the needed sugar rush to put her emotions in order to view a murder scene to the tenuous and stressful relationships with the Brass Bosses, this book was dead on."
Stacy Eaton, Police
Investigator and Certified Crime Scene Investigator

Pennsylvania, United States

"I thrive on rich characters and TIES THAT BIND did a superb job of capturing the law enforcement partner relationship."
Kevin Johnson, Sergeant (Ret.)
Minneapolis, MN

THE DETECTIVE MADISON KNIGHT MYSTERY SERIES falls neatly into the police procedural and detective hard-boiled mystery genres with murder investigations and forensics. Think Law & Order meets CSI. There is some foul language and limited graphic violence.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Heureusement que ce livre est gratuit 18 juillet 2014

C'est là son unique qualité !
Arrivée à 44% de l'ouvrage, je n'en peux plus, j'abandonne. Je me fiche de savoir qui est l'assassin mais je pense qu'il aurait dû d'abord éliminer l'héroïne, la détective Madison Knight. Je ne comprends pas l'entêtement de l'auteur à la rendre aussi antipathique. Elle se rend désagréable à tout le monde. Pas étonnant que sa vie sentimentale soit réduite à zéro.
A part ça, le vide, une écriture plate, des personnages creux, bref rien qui accroche
Il y a tellement de bons livres à lire, ne perdez pas votre temps avec celui là.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Perfect for any fan of the crime drama genre 15 août 2011
Par Karen DeLabar - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Carolyn Arnold's "Ties That Bind" follows Major Crimes Detective Madison Knight on her hunt to find a murderer with expensive tastes. Another reviewer mentioned that Arnold's writing style is very close to JD Robb's "In Death" series and he's right. "Ties That Bind" is an intelligent crime drama with a head-strong, determined female lead who isn't afraid to go up against her superiors if it means getting her man. Madison was a very relatable character, someone who has been on the force long enough to see terrible things, yet she still reminds herself that her victim was someone's loved one and its up to her to find them final justice. Arnold created a nice balance with Madison, she's determined without seeming cold and caring without being overly sensitive. My only complaint was that her superiors continued to dismiss her hunches even though I thought they were valid clues and thoughts. Arnold's writing gave just enough information to hold your interest, but not too much to give away the ending. A great read for a fan of the crime drama genre.

The plot may end up being good, but this book is so poorly written that I can't continue reading. It has grammatical errors, spelling errors ("notta" rather than "nada"?), and awkward phrasing in almost every paragraph. The police detectives have the emotions and interactions of teenagers. If the plot really is good, I recommend a good edit. In its current state, I can't recommend this book for anyone.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Conflicted review... 25 janvier 2012
Par Bobbrun - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Honestly did not know which way to lean on this review. For content, probably three stars as it seems that it consisted of a half dozen other author's books. Editing...good grief. The very worst of any of the other Kindle books I have read. Definitely a minus one star. In my version, there was a question mark in a box many times on every page. Letters were missing from words, words were missing from sentences, and sentences were missing from paragraphs. Yes, I know it was only 99 cents, but I kept thinking that I could have spent my 99 cents on something more readable.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 So many mistakes - stuffed up the whole story 5 août 2013
Par AddictedToBooks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I picked up this book as part of a free promo, and I was looking forward to reading it despite the many negative reviews it received. A lot of readers didn't like the main character, Madison Knight, because she is a tough, strong-willed woman. I'm the opposite, I like tough, strong-willed female characters, and so I started to read the book with an open mind. Unfortunately, the author did not handle at all well the development of Madison's character, and Madison came out looking like a one-dimensional character rather than a person the reader could relate to. In the end, I ended up disliking Madison and her manner.

(Spoiler in this paragraph) The plot was okay except the "twin factor" has been done in many stories, and I knew who the killer would be even before the author revealed it. Having said this, I could live with this, too, if the writing in the story would have been good.

The one thing I really found annoying was the incorrect use of grammar, especially the lack of commas where they were needed, and then, commas where they were not needed. Additionally, there were words that made no sense eg. "notta" instead of "nada"; "frickin" instead of "friggin'" or even "freakin'". There were also missed words, or words in the wrong place; and words (even whole sentences that should not have been there in the first place). This novel needs a full edit by someone who is actually a professional editor. I doubt very much whoever edited this is a real editor. One can forgive a typo or two, but the entire novel is riddled with grammatical errors, many times confusing the reader as to who is speaking, and lots of ambiguity. In short, many parts of the novel were difficult to follow.

The other thing that was very distracting was the hot and cold relationship between Madison and her partner, Terry. Their dialogue and banter was so badly done (and sometimes totally inappropriate in terms of timing) that I couldn't believe it. I was also very confused when Madison said Terry was named after the casanova character in the film An Affair to Remember (this would be the part played by Cary Grant -- Nicky Ferrante); but somehow, the name Terry McKay comes up (which is the character played by Deborah Kerr). So how does this relate to Terry, the cop, if he's likened to a casanova? Nicky Ferrante was the casanova in the film, not Terry McKay. I know this is being picky, but if the author is going to confuse the reader like this, better to leave the whole thing out, or get her facts straight.

Finally, the actual reaction of the characters to what was happening in the story was many times unrealistic, making the story unbelievable and shallow.

It's a real pity the author made all these mistakes, and after having read the many negative reviews that repeat what I've said here (at least, I'm assuming she read them), she didn't pull the novel out of circulation and do a proper and full edit, plus develop the characters and give them some depth. She simply left the novel as is.

I know an author can't please everyone, and so one or two negative reviews are always expected, but these many are definitely a sign that something is wrong, especially when a novel is badly written and full of grammatical errors. It's one thing to have negative reviews because readers didn't like the story (after all, it might not be their "cup of tea"), but it's another thing when the negative reviews allude to bad writing, bad grammar and lack of character development.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Mediocre Beginning 24 janvier 2013
Par lostintheswamp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
... and then it continued to go downhill. I always hesitate to write bad reviews, but I rely on reviews for almost everything I get online, so I thought I'd write one for this book. It begins with the lead cop, Madison going to a murder scene. Feet away from viewing a murder she pulls out a candy bar and begins to eat it while she's sassing her boss. I wouldn't know, but that seems unrealistic or quite cold, which makes me dislike this woman immediately. Maybe the author was channeling the detective in The Closer but it doesn't work. Madison is self centered, mean without good reason, dismissive of everyone she works with, and self pitying - some long ago lover cheated on her and she can't let it go. She is the only one who works tirelessly, she talks about believing her intuition though it is wrong every time until it's not,she is constantly punching and smacking her partner which is supposed to be playful, I think, but comes across as more than annoying. The attempts at humour fail probably because the character is totally humourless. The plot is a bit different but there's no explanation why a single bad situation created a monster who tortures and kills for revenge. I finished the book just to write the review, but it wasn't worth it. Add in that the writing is not at all imaginative,and there you have it.
