Publisher's Summary

Three victims. One method. One motive.

Grab a badge and a gun and strap in for a ride that’s “full of suspense from the beginning to the end….” (Readers Abode). When dead bodies start piling up, Detective Madison Knight suspects that her city has a serial killer — but the quest for justice isn’t going to be an easy one. Everyone — including her own partner, her sergeant, and the police chief — are working against her.  

“Arnold has written one of the best female cops that I’ve ever read… Madison is just one of those characters that will stay with you.” (Harlie’s Books)

A woman is found strangled in her bed, and Detective Madison Knight doesn’t think it’s anything more than an isolated incident. But when another woman’s body is discovered in a park, killed with the same brand of neckties, she can’t ignore the similarities between the two murders. Still, it’s not until a third victim surfaces that Madison really starts to fear the worst: The city of Stiles just may have a serial killer. 

Catching the murderer isn’t going to be easy, though. She’s facing 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 doing his job. If there’s justice to be had, Madison may have to go this alone.

Ties That Bind is a fast-paced crime novel with twists and turns you’ll never see coming. Perfect for fans of the police procedural genre and authors such as James Patterson, Michael Connelly, and JD Robb. Buy this international best-selling book today and join the investigation! Uncover clues, follow leads, and catch a killer like thousands of readers have done before you. It doesn’t matter if this is the first book you’re listening to in the Detective Madison Knight series or not; all the books stand alone!

loved it

I absolutely loved this story. The only thing I'm disappointed in is the narrator's voice of Blake. As I'm assuming he is going to become a major character in The following books. I think she's trying to give him some kind of accent and it made it more annoying. But the story over all amazing and the narrator over all did a great job.

Not worth the time at all

So aggressive and pointless.
For fiction to work there has to be levels of credibility and this has very few such aspects. The main character is not realistic and fails to step of the page at all. The story is underwhelming in the extreme.
I cannot recommend this book.
