Ties That Bind

Book 1, Detective Madison Knight Series - A Madison Knight Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The hunt for a serial killer begins…

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 brand of neckties, she realizes they’re dealing with something more serious.

Despite mounting pressure from the sergeant and the 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 the murderer is going to be stopped.


“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
