I love thrillers, suspense, murder and serial killers, not necessarily in that order. LOL

Remnants by Carolyn Arnold has them all.

It is amazing how quickly someone can just vanish. There one minute, gone the next.

Body parts are being found in a Georgia river. A leg here, an arm there, here a skull, there a torso, but no hands or feet. Why?

The parts don’t match. How many bodies are there?

A serial killer is on the loose.

Step by step, clue by clue, law enforcement follows the path to the Unsub in a

Brandon Fisher is now a full-fledged FBI Agent, finally finished with his probationary period. Jack is the leader of this team, which also includes Paige and Zach. I mention these because this is book 6 of a series. I was afraid jumping in at this late date might lead to a lot of frustration and confusion as I haven't read any others of this particular series. No fear .. this is perfectly done as a stand alone. But as always, I recommend starting from the beginning to pick up all those back stor ...more

Apr 11, 2017 rated it it was amazing
The FBI, including Special Agent Brandon Fisher, have been called to attend a crime scene, which the local authorities think is the work of a serial killer. A skinless arm with no hand was found a few days ago on the bank of a river. Now another arm, plus a skinless leg missing it’s foot, has been found. All from different victims. All from males aged in their twenties, but there have been no missing persons reports locally.

Whilst trying to establish who the victims are, more body parts turn up,

Ever been told that even though a book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone, only to be completely frustrated when you discover “they” lied? No worries, “they” told the truth, REMNANTS really CAN be read as a standalone! Carolyn Arnold has created a gritty nightmare of a tale that will churn the stomachs of even the most hard-boiled of FBI agents.

Body parts are turning up in a river. Arms, legs, torsos. The odd thing? The parts are from multiple victims and no hands or feet are found. Georgia has a serial killer and the FBI is called in to investigate.

I’m a fan of murder mysteries. Give me a twisted serial killer and a case not easily solved, along with many suspects, and I’m lost in the story until the end.

This case reminded me of episodes from the TV show Criminal Minds. The killings are gruesome. The FBI team works as a well oiled mac

This is my first time reading anything by this author. This book started out strong and ended just as strong. There is nothing worse than reading a book only to get a weak ending. Although, I must say that Brandon did not have as much of a huge presence with me as his team did. Together they all worked well together. It was a nice balance of men and women.

I want to stop and take a moment to talk about the killer. The author made sure that the killer's time in the spotlight was not lessened by t

High-octane Police Procedural Thanks to Rosie Amber, to the author and her husband for offering me an ARC copy of this novel that I voluntarily choose to review (before its official launch).
I read thrillers often and although until recently I’d been reluctant to read books belonging to series that I had not followed before, I’ve found myself reading a few books in this category and enjoying them.

I was graciously contacted via my blog, to receive a copy of “Remnants” in exchange for an honest review. That being said, it has not altered my opinion of the book whatsoever. “Remnants” will be published on April 11th 2017 and available for purchase here.

Carolyn Arnold is a new author for me, however the genre is not. I've always been a fan of CSI (although it HAS to be Las Vegas) and Bones, however for some reason or another, these genres do not grace my shelves too often.

Remnants begins with several body parts, discovered floating in the Little Ogeechee River in Savannah, Georgia. Brandon Fisher, FBI agent, is called in to investigate, but he finds it difficult to identify the victims.

This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader.
After some strong storms go through the area, some dismembered body parts are discovered in and near the Little Ogeechee River in Savannah, Georgia. While the local law enforcement is unable to quickly identify who the parts belonged to, it was clear that multiple victims were involved, and a FBI team is called in to investigate. The limbs don't come with any identifying marks outside of DNA, making it incredibly difficult to identify the v

I used to be enthralled with the television series Criminal Minds which is all about FBI behavioral analysts. My mother got me hooked on it one summer/fall I was in California. I do not watch much television anymore, other than currently NHL playoffs, but I do find these books by Carolyn Arnold fantastic.

First of all, the book is part of a series of books with FBI agent Brandon Fisher as the lead character. I have read others but this book will stand alone as a great read.

Second, think of a book

Mysteries have always been a favorite read and are the first section of the bookstore that I gravitate toward. However, when I get the mystery embedded with a psychological twist, oh how it makes my day! I highly recommend reading the previous books in the Brandon Fisher FBI Series but if you like to walk on the wild side, jump right into this one. Trust me, you will be thinking, "Whoa!!

If you love crime shows like Criminal Minds and identify as a crime show junkie like me, you will love this Brandon Fisher FBI series. Remnants is the 6th book in the series, but really is a standalone story (I haven’t read the first 5 … yet).

Brandon and his team from the FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit are called to Savannah, GA to help the local PD solve their latest case involving severed human body parts from multiple victims. The hands and feet have been removed from the legs and arms that hav

A suspenseful story that will keep you second guessing yourself!

I found myself sucked into the story from the very beginning. It is a face paced thriller with many unpredictable and entertaining twists and turns. The farther you read the more twists and turns show up. It leaves you thinking that anyone can be the suspect. Fantastic writing that keeps you guessing throughout while pulling you to the end where you will then wonder how you didn’t figure it out sooner. It takes a good writer to not

This is book 6 in a series, but I didn't realize that as I was reading it. Most series make you feel like you are missing something if you start in the middle. I have read some of the other books in the series, but not all of them, and I did not feel lost at all. The back story does indeed come into play-but honestly does not impact the main story line in a detrimental sort of way.

It’s a Valentine’s Day to remember when FBI profiler Brandon Fisher and his team get called to Savannah after body parts start washing ashore from the Ogeechee River. Apparently the killer keeps the hands and feet since they are missing from each appendage found. It is determined that each find is from a different victim. And to make matters even more difficult, this serial killer doesn’t follow any set profile.

Wow! This book hooked me from the very beginning and didn't let go. With body parts washing ashore the FBI team need to find a killer in a hurry. Due to the sudden trip out of town several Valentine's Day plans are ruined, and the profilers have to try to solve a case while dealing with their own personal issues.

This book is gritty, sometimes almost gross, with plot twists that will keep you guessing for hours. Every new body part that shows up gives them another glimpse into the killer's mind,

When body parts turn up in Savannah, Georgia, FBI Agent Brandon Fisher and his team is called in to investigate. They have no clues to tell them who the body parts belong to and so therefor leaves them with nowhere to turn for answers and who killed these people in such a brutal way or why? But when they decide to look into missing people in the area they start to build a profile for the body parts and hopefully the killer.

Who is killing people in such a brutal and violent way? What kind of min

Remnants pulled me right from the beginning with my favorite FBI agents from the previous books and a handful of suspects in a murder case.

I've read several in the series, and they don't disappoint...but of course it has all the trappings of what I like...serial murder, suspense and strong characters with a story running through their lives which continues along in each book. There is not too much mystery here...we learn almost immediately who is responsible, but there are little surprises along the way. The story builds to a thrilling climax, but then the last few chapters clean up any leftover questions and despite a stand off in ...more

Remnants is the 6th book in this series and can be read as a standalone. I had no problem with getting lost and not understanding. The details were so vivid, characters were very well done and the storyline was very thought out to make a great read.

I received a copy of this book directly from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Remnants by Carolyn Arnold is not the type of book I would normally pick up. Although I love murder mysteries and suspense stories, I’ll admit that character-driven fiction is the main basis for my love of most books—and this book wasn’t character driven. We’ll get to that in a minute, though.

Technically speaking, Remnants was well written. It was easy to follow along, there weren’t a lot of gramma

Remnants is book #6 of the Brandon Fisher FBI crime series and can also be read as a stand-alone novel.

The story is set in the state of Georgia. The prologue opens with a man in search of his next victim at a shopping mall in Atlanta, where we read about his quick ruthless snatch-and-grab of a young man.

Chapter one introduces us to FBI agent Brandon Fisher, his boss Jack and his co-workers Zack and Paige. They’ve been called to Savannah by Lieutenant Pike after human remai
