Summary

Given only weeks to live, Kenny Drummond finds a mystery worth dying to solve  In this gripping psychological thriller from the creator of Luther, Kenny Drummond has been diagnosed with late-stage brain cancer and is writing a list—a list of all the people he has let down in one way or another. He is determined to make amends before the black smudge that keeps showing up on his scans exercises its final power over him. Working his way down the list, Kenny comes to an old schoolmate, Callie Barton, who was kind when he needed a friend. He heard she dated and eventually married Jonathan Reese, and that they live in Bath. But no matter how hard he tries, Kenny can’t seem to get ahold of Callie; she’s disappeared without a trace. In fact, there are rumors that Reese wasn’t the kindest husband. And he sure seems like he has something to hide. Now Kenny has a ticking clock and a promise to keep, and nothing’s going to stand in his way.

    "The story runs at a good pace, my fingers kept on flicking those pages, and I was determined to find out who done it before my eyelids started drooping!… Good narrative, enthralling writing…to keep you occupied and guessing at [what comes next]!" 
    –2 Girls Who Love Books 
     
    Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue… 
     
    At the heart of every human being is the need—and the desire—to be happy. For many, happiness is elusive, but for one killer, it's something to be created. But it's not as easy as it seems at first, and this "creator" is determined to get it right at least one more time, no matter how many tries it takes… 
     
    It's been exactly a year since Cheryl Bradley was found dead in her bathtub, dressed in a wedding gown with her ring finger severed. With no leads and no more evidence, the case had gone cold. That is, until another young woman is found murdered and posed in the same fashion. 
     
    Now, FBI agent Brandon Fisher and his team have been called in to catch the killer before another innocent life is taken. As Brandon begins to pull at every possible loose thread, the idea that the killer's method of operation is all that connects the women begins to unravel. This serial killer isn't just out for blood; this is a murderer on a mission. 
     
    But the closer Brandon thinks he's getting to a resolution, the more evident it is that the killer is losing control and slipping up, making the trail even more difficult for the FBI to follow. And unless Brandon and his team can catch up to the killer, the bloodbath will continue to overflow.

    "Feel free to jump in the series at this point because Remnants is a stand-alone thrilling profiler mystery that you will want to read." 
    –Crystal's Many Reviewers 
     
    "Arnold has created a gritty nightmare of a tale that will churn the stomachs of even the most hard-boiled of FBI agents... Full of grit, gore and enough twists to make even the most diligent of readers hard-pressed to discover the villain, even the ending will keep you on pins and needles." 
    –Tome Tender Book Blog 
    All that remains are whispers of the past… 
    When multiple body parts are recovered from the Little Ogeechee River in Savannah, Georgia, local law enforcement calls in FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher and his team to investigate. But with the remains pointing to three separate victims, this isn't proving to be an open-and-shut case. 
    With no quick means of identifying the deceased, building a profile of this serial killer is more challenging than usual. How are these targets being selected? Why are their limbs being severed and their bodies mutilated? And what is it about them that is triggering this person to murder? 
    The questions compound as the body count continues to rise, and when a torso painted blue and missing its heart is found, the case takes an even darker turn. But this is only the beginning, and these new leads draw the FBI into a creepy psychological nightmare. One thing is clear, though: The killing isn't going to stop until they figure it all out. And they are running out of time…

But when a dead body turns up soon after Sara’s supposed mother takes off without so much as a goodbye, they both must question the truth.
