Strand of Deception by Robin Caroll

If you love forensic drama, you will really enjoy Strand of Deception--A Justice Seekers novel by Robin Caroll. Madeline Baxter, forensic scientist and heroine of this novel, is someone I would want for a friend and was a character I could relate to. She has testified that "science doesn't lie" but finds herself puzzling over some questions... Such as--what is that sixth sense that has little to do with science and all about gut instinct about? And can it be trusted? She is girly and quirky, but a hard core professional at the scene of a crime. Maddie has a soft spot for Nick Hagar, an FBI agent who has been burned in the love department and is not about to surrender his heart to a woman easily-- in spite of his attraction to  Maddie Baxter.

Somethings gotta give...murder, politics, and hearts on the line make this book a really fun page turner!

Robin Caroll


Born and raised in Louisiana, Robin Caroll is a southerner through and through. Her passion has always been to tell stories to entertain others. Robin’s mother, bless her heart, is a genealogist who instilled in Robin the deep love of family and pride of heritage—two aspects Robin weaves into each of her books.

When she isn’t writing, Robin spends time with her husband of twenty-plus years, her 3 beautiful daughters, 2 precious grandsons, and their character-filled pets at home—in the South, where else?


When Gina Ford, the daughter of a prominent Tennessee politician, goes missing from the University of Memphis a week after another girl was murdered on the same campus, police call in the FBI. Nick Hagar, married to his job as Special Agent in Charge, is assigned to the case, and when Gina’s body is found, her father demands justice.

Maddie Baxter is the forensic expert running DNA tests from the crime scene. When they come back without a match, Nick asks her to do a familial DNA run that yields a shocking result: the prime suspect is Adam Alexander, the very same guy who broke Maddie’s heart when she was in college.

But do scientific advancements tell the whole story? Strand of Deception offers romance, suspense, and a lively debate about the impact of DNA testing, for better or worse, on the United States justice system.
