This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
"In Arnold's well-executed fifth Brandon Fisher FBI novel… FBI agent Paige Dawson becomes embroiled in a case, not as an investigator but as a suspect… Arnold does a good job creating an air of uncertainty surrounding the murder, and the chemistry among her FBI characters is convincing."
Sometimes the past should stay there…
The murder is one of the most heinous FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher has ever seen. But that's not why he and two members of the team are rushing to California. The Bureau is interested because the prime suspect is one of their own, Paige Dawson.
But Paige didn't go to Valencia to kill anyone. She had set out on "vacation"—her new lover in tow—only to confront the man who raped her friend twenty-some years ago. While the hands of the law are tied, she wants him to face the fact that he destroyed a young woman's life and know that, as an FBI agent, she'll be watching his every move. Yet, instead of accomplishing her goal, she wound up in the back of a police cruiser.
Now Paige must face off with a hard-nosed detective determined to stick a murder charge to a fed. But with the trained eyes of the FBI on the case, it's becoming more and more obvious that the evidence lends itself to a serial killing, not an isolated incident. And as long as the local authorities are focused on Paige, the real murderer is still out there, possibly waiting to strike again…

Good read. Characters you become friends with, story moves at a great pace, hard to put down!
Up until Violated, the last few books I started was just that. I started them, but couldn’t get into them since the Eriksson series from LS Sygnet—I bought every single book in the series and will do the same with the Brandon Fisher FBI series by Carolyn Arnold. The only thing I would change about this series is the tense. Brandon speaks in the first person, while the rest of the story is narrative, which can be confusing if you’re not reading straight through. It would be interesting if the author would have the core characters tell their story, thoughts and feelings from their point of view by labeling each chapter by the characters name. Or to write it all as a narrative. But that’s just me.
***I read Eleven over a year ago, and missed the books in between—even though I’m buying after this review. Even though it’s part of a series, it’s a great stand-alone novel.xx
