"Taut, tense, crackling with psychological suspense and bursting with authentic detail, On the Count of Three is a tremendous thriller. Fans of Criminal Minds will love it and be left hungry for more." -Andrew Child, author of The Sentinel

He had it planned out to perfection. She was weak and pathetic, past the point of fighting for her life. She must know she couldn't win, and soon it would all be over...on the count of three.

A woman is reported missing in Miami, Florida, and Detective Kelly Marsh starts the investigation into her disappearance. But Marsh soon recognizes notable similarities between this woman's history and that of two victims, brutally murdered, their cases still unsolved. Marsh's gut tells her the killer may be back, and she'll need assistance from the FBI to take down this monster. Special Agent Brandon Fisher and his team with the Behavioral Analysis Unit jet south to coordinate their efforts with the local detective.

With evidence mounting that the missing woman's fate is looking much the same as the other victims, Brandon and the others must work at their highest level of efficiency and cunning if they're going to stand a chance of saving her. After all, as they quickly come to realize, they're hunting a killer with an insatiable appetite for blood. And if the FBI team isn't careful, one of them may not make it out of Miami alive.

On the Count of Three is a totally chilling crime thriller packed with suspense. Perfect for fans of Catherine Coulter, JT Ellison, and Patricia Cornwell.

Review quote

"There is a lot at stake in this fast-paced, engrossing thriller. The author succeeds in grabbing the attention of the reader from the onset and keeps it riveted until the explosive denouement. The narration is excellent, featuring timely paragraph breaks that reinforce the strength of the drama in the story. I enjoyed the conflict between the characters, the doubts, the differences in opinions that allow these characters to evolve through the story. The plot is cunningly done, with twists and turns that readers will want to follow. On the Count of Three is exciting, a read filled with thrills. Carolyn Arnold makes sure the reader gets no moment of respite from the dynamic action that punctuates the narrative. A real page-turner."-Readers' Favorite ★★★★★
