Not only did Mitchell bully Cedric all through school, but his life has been troubled ever since. Now, just out of prison, he's broke and his parents have gone missing, leaving a cloud of suspicion hanging over his head. But when Barry warns him not to touch the boarded-up door in the cellar, the ever-curious Cedric can't resist. The small storage room, obviously unused in years, contains jars of preserves, barrels of dried apples and a pile of small bones. As he sets out to discover who died and how, Cedric uncovers a tale of violence, deception and abuse. And he learns just how far Barry will go to keep a tragic family secret from coming to light.

    Humanity’s Commonwealth won its war with the alien Shrehari Empire seven decades ago.  Starships engaged in commerce have replaced the battlecruisers, and much of that commerce flows through free ports established on what was once a disputed frontier.  Yet even long after the armistice, the relationship between humans and an unfathomable, easily offended species remains tense.  When someone assassinates a Shrehari trade emissary on Aquilonia Station, a human-owned free port dug into the crust of an airless moon, leaving a Commonwealth Navy officer as the sole suspect, everyone fears the worst. 
     
    An alien envoy killed by a member of the Armed Services is a case for the Commonwealth Constabulary, humanity’s interstellar police force.  And with galactic peace at stake, the investigation lands on the desk of Chief Superintendent Caelin Morrow. 
     
    As head of the Rim Sector’s internal affairs division, Morrow has one of the more challenging and unpleasant jobs in the Constabulary.  She investigates those in authority — members of the police, the military or government officials.  That makes her one of the most disliked if not outright hated cops in the Commonwealth.  However, Morrow and her officers are also known as the last of the incorruptibles.  They’re the ones with nothing left to lose, those who are highly skilled at uncovering and prosecuting malfeasance, no matter how powerful or wealthy their suspects might be.  It makes them the ideal investigators to satisfy an angry Shrehari government. 
     
    But soon after Morrow arrives on Aquilonia to establish the truth, she realizes there is something more ominous behind the Shrehari envoy’s assassination than one of the seven deadly sins that usually motivate violent crimes.  Was his murder an act of passion, or an act of politics?  And what will the results of her investigation mean for the future of humanity’s relations with its restive alien neighbor? 
    Introducing veteran investigator Chief Superintendent Caelin Morrow, The Warrior’s Knife is the first novel in the Quis Custodiet series, a police procedural and murder mystery spin-off from Decker’s War.  The events in this story occur in parallel to Howling Stars (Decker’s War Book 4).

    "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…
