Sometimes, justice comes at a high price…

“An intense, thrilling page-turner sure to satisfy any fan of the [crime] genre.” –Rosa St. Clair, Book Reviewer

Perfect for fans of James Patterson, Michael Connelly, and JD Robb.

When a young man washes up on the shore of the Bradshaw River, Detective Madison Knight and her partner are called in to investigate. But the case takes a complicated turn when he’s identified as the son of local business tycoon Marcus Randall. As one of the wealthiest and most influential men in the city, he has a lot of connections, and one of them just happens to be the police chief.

Madison and Chief McAlexandar have butted heads before, but with this case, Madison’s drive and determination to find the truth just might cost her the badge she worked so hard to get. After all she’s got her eye on Randall, despite the chief’s protests, but she’s not the only one. The Secret Service is after him for suspicion of fraud and counterfeiting, and they want Madison’s full cooperation to aid their investigation.

Stuck between the chief and one of the most powerful men in the city of Stiles isn’t the ideal place to be, but Madison has no choice but to risk it all—if justice is to be served.

BUT I am never going to know the ending I began to have problem moving pages along at about half way through Not my Nook for to test I tried reading another book with no problem I wouldnt care so much but I really enjoy the writers prose and characters Please tell me the rest of the story! Four stars for what I did get !

I was unable to finish the lat 50 pages of this book because of technical difficulties - unable to turn pages, only able to read 1-2 pages at a time before it would completely freeze up. It's not my Nook because I can read other books just fine. What I did read was okay but not great. I found the main character irritating and not particularly likeable. I got tired of the constant repetition and dwelling on the fact that the chief was impeding the investigation. I also found some of the police work totally unbelievable, like sitting on a supposed recording of the murder for days without listening to it. Not relevant to the story at all, but I really didn't like that the main character kept a large dog, and a breed known to be hyperactive, inside in a kennel all day long. That's just cruel. I suppose I might have rated this higher if I could have finished it, but based on the 170+ pages I did read, I don't recommend it. JB

Made it to page 51 before I gave up. Just didn't make sense.

I struggled through 165 pages of this pitiful excuse of a novel. I decided it wasn't going to get better. Technical issues with page not turning, etc., helped me make the final decision to quit reading it. I suggest some of the good reviews posted for this book are fake! The only "Sacrifice" was rhe time I wasted trying to read it. Zero stars is my rating.

Seriously??? I'm only on page 17 and I see "He rose his glass and took a swig." ROSE?? I hope the story is good enough to overcome mistakes like this. :-/

This was an ok read. I couldn't keep track of all the characters who became suspects and felt no closure at the end. Yes, the crime was solved but what happened to tie up all the questions I wanted answers for? I 'm not sure whether I'd read more of this series. I also had problems with the last pages turning. There was like a 5 second delay for the page to turn. Never had that happen before on my Nook.

Ms Arnold characterized a black woman as speaking broken English and was insultingly descriptive about her body. Moreover, the Chief referred to a Detective as a monkey. These references we're unnecessary and did not contribute to the story. I did not finish this book as I found it repulsive and I will not read another book by this author.

The plot has so many twists and turns it keeps you looking for the answer to come. Great mystery with just a bit of humor.

Madison Knight is a favorite of mine. Series is exciting and interesting to read. Looking forward to the next one.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
The main character, Madison Knight, is a rude, egotistical narcicist and very unlikeable. In fact, none of the characters are interesting. I slogged through the entire book but it never got any better. Too much time spent trying to create multiple suspects then finished abruptly -- very unsatisfying. Can't recommend it; won't read anymore by this author.
