It is no secret how much I love Carolyn Arnold’s police procedural mysteries and Shades of Justice did not disappoint!
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.
The line between good and evil isn’t always clear…
Detective Madison Knight has risked her badge—and her life—in the pursuit of justice before, and she just might need to do so again. Two victims are found murdered and naked in the home of Steven Malone, who is the largest contributor to the Stiles PD. One victim is his wife. The other victim is a John Doe. This high-profile double homicide immediately pits Madison against her sergeant, who seems more intent on protecting the Malones’ reputation and retaining a benefactor than catching a killer.
Madison will need to pull on her tenacity and courage if she’s going to follow the evidence without prejudice. In the process, it becomes clear that finding justice isn’t always black and white, and often the shades in between tell the fullest story—and it’s not something she will forget anytime soon.
Shades of Justice is a murder mystery with twists and turns that will have readers flipping the pages until the wee hours of the morning. The ninth installment in an international bestselling series, it doesn’t matter if this is the first book you’re reading in the Detective Madison Knight series or not; all the books stand alone!

Read an excerpt
Many times, mystery authors give us more than one mystery to solve in one book and things get hectic. While this one started out putting a seed in our mind about a private case that Madison is investigating; the book mainly centers on the double homicide of a wealthy man’s (and a big donor to the police department) wife and a John Doe.
One of my favorite things about Carolyn Arnold is that she is an amazing law enforcement procedural writer so you are thrown into the thick of the investigation with Madison and her partner Terry and it’s life like – realistic. It’s almost like you are in the back seat tagging along to the crime scene, the suspect interviews, and listening in while they throw ideas around about the case, motive, and means.
There were several suspects – many of them that created suspicion for not only myself, but also Madison – and the seed planted at the beginning never left your mind as the search for the killer – and John Doe – continued throughout the story.
I love a good book that has several suspects and enough suspicion that you are never really 100% sure who the killer is until it’s revealed and this did just that. Every time I thought I had the suspect pegged, a new one would put suspicion in my mind that would make me second guess my initial guess.
I am a huge fan of Carolyn Arnold’s writing and love every book I have ever read by her. If you like true crime; you will thoroughly enjoy her books.
