Power Struggle Book Review

I thought a book about the Russian mafia was going to have a lot of violence in but Carolyn Arnold surprised me with how she told the story of the murders but didn’t go into too much graphic details as I don’t like books with too much violence. Also it didn’t go into the politic or technical things about the mafia which would have made the book more of a challenge for me to read as I know very little about Russian Mafia.

It was more focused on the main cop character and as she someone I liked from the beginning of the book I was rooting for her to catch the villain and not get hurt in the process.

When something goes missing from the polices evidence room i was on the edge of my seat wondering how it happened and couldn’t put the book down until I found out more. Also a family member is brought into the conflict and its touch and go whether they are going to survive which had me gripped.

My first book by this author and I liked her writing style the words she uses are not over complicated so it was a great read in bed when my brain is winding down after a long day. I am definitely going to read some more of the Madison Knight Series. This was number 8 in the Madison Knight Series and although I had not read any of the other books I didn’t feel too lost as though I couldn’t relate to the characters or understand what was happening. It might have been useful to know a little bit more about the killer as he is from her past but it isn’t a necessity to read this book.



One hit man who’s back for revenge.

One detective who’s not going down without a fight.

It’s been ten months since Detective Madison Knight almost died at the hands of Russian Mafia hit man Constantine Romanov. She hasn’t seen hide nor hair of him since he escaped police custody and fled to Russia soon after his arrest, except now her latest murder investigation gives her reason to believe he’s back in town. Seeing as the victim is the man who killed her grandfather, her perspective may be a little skewed, but with the MO smacking of Constantine and the victim’s connections to the mob, she finds it hard to be objective. Still, she’s doing her best to consider all the evidence.

When she receives a threatening letter from Constantine, however, her suspicions are confirmed. And he’s made it abundantly clear that not only does he plan to finish what he started but he has her family and loved ones in the crosshairs, too. Madison vows to do whatever it takes to save them, but as the hours race by, the body count rises. And the stakes only get higher when Madison’s sister, Chelsea, goes missing.

Now, Madison’s only play is to take Chelsea’s disappearance for what it really means: Constantine is calling Madison out for one final showdown. And they won’t both survive…
