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…


Power Struggle is the latest installment in the Detective Madison Knight series, already the eighth book in the series, although the books can be read as stand-alones. Carolyn Arnold is a prolific author who brings a new book every so often, and I’ve enjoyed all her books I’ve read so far, so of course I was eager to start reading Power Struggle.

Ten months ago, Detective Madison Knight nearly died at the hands of Russian Maffia hit man Constantine Romanov. Soon after his arrest, he escaped police custody and fled to Russia, and Madison hasn’t seen him since… Until her latest murder investigation makes her believe he’s back in town.

When she receives a threatening letter from Constantine, Madison realizes he doesn’t just intend to finish what he started, but he also intends to hurt her family and friends. As the stakes get increasingly higher, Constantine calls Madison out for a final showdown. Only one of them will survive… And Madison isn’t sure she’ll be the last one standing.

This book is a thrilling, suspenseful read that will put every reader on the edge of their seat. 460 pages but they fly by lightning-fast, and before you know it, you’ve reached the end. Fans of fast-paced, exciting thrillers should check this book out.
