If you love criminal or police dramas as much as I do; check out our review of On The Count of Three by Carolyn Arnold. You will not regret it!
Disclosure: I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
When a woman’s disappearance ticks off all the same boxes as two unsolved murders, Miami homicide detective Kelly Marsh is convinced there’s about to be a third. If she’s right and the killer sticks to their previous MO, she only has three days before Jenna Kelter’s decapitated head will show up somewhere in the city. With no time to waste, Kelly reaches out to the one person she knows can help: her former mentor and family friend Jack Harper, who just happens to lead a team with the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit.
BAU special agent and profiler Brandon Fisher easily sees the similarities between Detective Marsh’s missing person case and the two cold cases: all three victims served time for DUI vehicular homicide and disappeared three days after being released from prison. But is that enough to assume Kelter has been abducted by a serial killer? Brandon’s not so sure and fears his boss may have let his personal connection to Marsh cloud his judgment. Surely there isn’t any other explanation for why they jumped into an investigation less than twenty-four hours after Kelter was reported missing. Then again, maybe Brandon is letting his own differences with the detective affect his perspective. He’ll need to move past it, though—and quickly.
After all, this killer has evaded capture for the past six years, and they may be looking at a lot more victims than originally suspected. This serial killer is calling the shots and pulling them into a macabre game of cat and mouse. While the team has no choice but to play, if they don’t make the right moves, one of them may not make it out of Miami alive.
What to expect from the Brandon Fisher FBI series:
Profilers. Serial killers. The hunt is on. Do serial killers and the FBI fascinate you? Do you like getting inside the minds of killers, love being creeped out, sleeping with your eyes open, and feeling like you’re involved in murder investigations? Then join FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher and his team with the Behavioral Analysis Unit in their hunt for serial killers.
Read in any order or follow the series from the beginning.

I am a huge fan of police/criminal dramas – CSI, NCIS, Chicago PD, Hawaii Five-0 – they’re my jam so when it comes to reading police drama related books – Carolyn Arnold is my go to recommendation.
First and foremost, these books can be read as stand alone. I don’t feel you are lost among anything other than maybe personal history/backgrounds, but it’s not enough that it takes away from the thrill, suspense, and mystery of the story. Granted, reading all of the books in the series is always more fun and my preferred method, but don’t let a little thing like that stop you from enjoying an amazing read.
I felt this book was darker than some of the previous in the series (or maybe my memory is bad. It’s probable.) If you have followed my book reviews at all, you know I am a big fan of John W. Mefford and the feel of this book reminded me of his stories, but with more of the FBI/police aspect than we get in John’s book. An all around winning combination if you ask me.
My love of police/criminal drama is working the case right along with the agents/officers. I love taking in the details that are shared, getting stumped, running ideas – all to run down a suspect. Carolyn’s books deliver that so well that even though I am reading the book; I feel like I’m a part of the team, working the case right along with them.
On the Count of Three gripped me, pulled me in, and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire ride. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it; wished it wasn’t over; but can’t wait to see what Carolyn has in store for us to read next!
