Her Dark Grave is another amazing ‘who done it’ read by my favorite mystery author, Carolyn Arnold, and yet another must read!
Disclosure: I received a complimentary e-book copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are 100% my own unless otherwise noted.
Her eyes widen at her reflection in the steel blade as it comes closer, closer, closer…
Detective Madison Knight thought a midnight drive through the countryside would help clear her mind, but she thought wrong. Her car runs out of gas, stranding her in the middle of nowhere in pitch darkness. When she gets out to stretch her legs, the beam of her phone’s flashlight lands on a suitcase in the ditch. After she opens it, she’s sorry she did.
Tara Jackson was only twenty-one years old with her entire life ahead of her before she was stabbed to death and stuffed into a piece of luggage. Madison is determined to find her justice and soon uncovers that Tara was keeping secrets from those closest to her and suspects they may have gotten her killed. But while she’s exploring that lead, the body of another young woman is found in a sports equipment bag.
She looks just like Tara and is the same age, and Madison starts to wonder if the killer she’s after has killed before. Desperate, she turns to cold cases and missing person reports to see if she can dig up anything to further the investigation.
Madison finds eighteen-year-old Daphne Tucker, who was reported missing from the area three years ago. She’s a doppelganger to the other victims. Is the reason Daphne hasn’t been heard from because she’s dead too? And has her killer returned, hungry for more blood?
As Madison edges closer to the truth, someone is stalking her from the shadows, and she fears it just may be the twisted, demented killer she’s hunting. But can Madison outsmart him or her before she becomes the next victim?

Have I mentioned lately how much I love reading Carolyn Arnold’s books? If I haven’t, let me tell you…
Search Carolyn Arnold in the blog search bar and you will see me raving about her writing in every review I do of her books. They are hands down, one of my top favorite mystery reads. When someone asks for a good mystery writer, I always recommend Carolyn Arnold.
Her Dark Grave did not disappoint.
It was right on point with the personal conflicts, the slight romance in the air, and the “who done it” mystery that even when the answer was right in front of my face – literally in black and white – I still did not believe it. (No joke. I had an entirely different mystery and theory in my head for a great ending, but Carolyn’s ending was perfect too!)
Although Her Dark Grave is book 12 in the Madison Knight series, you can read it as a stand alone. I know I have read previous Detective Knight books, but I am certainly missing some and I did not feel lost at all. I was able to keep up with what was happening, right along with the story.
If you enjoy crimes, police procedural, and or mystery reads; Carolyn Arnold is a must read author.
