Power Struggle by Carolyn Arnold-A Great Escapes Book Tour

About the 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…

And I thought
One of my favorite kind of book is a fast paced; Crime, Suspenseful, Thrillers with strong and good characters.  
I really like the good cops. I like it when it all goes well for them, everything turns out o.k. and there is a little clean romance. 

For me Power Struggle  and author Carolyn Arnold fits right into my list and has become a new favorite.  

Fast paced.   From page 1 the reader is drawn into the story. When a brutal murder takes place Madison and her partner are fast on the scene.  

But the scene doesn't go quite as normal for Madison when she realizes that the MO is too close to one from a few years before.  A murder by a hit man that is probably back in town and ready to come after Madison. 

The suspense unfolds as everyone realizes that the hit man Constantine is back and ready for revenge.  What hit man wouldn't be when he botches an assignment.  Which is exactly what happened.  Madison was his victim and she got away.  So now he's back and seeking revenge by threatening her family.

When Madison refuses to be taken off the case friends, family and co-workers encourage her to let the other police handle.  

Like if she quite the hit man would really just go away.  Hello?

Which he doesn't of course.  And so the game is on.  

The ride is thrilling.  The ride is suspenseful and fills the reader with a few hours of on the edge of the seat entertainment.  

And about the romance and good ending?  I can't spill the beans you'll have to read it yourself.

I received a complimentary copy.
