Publisher Description

Kristen Conner goes undercover to catch a serial killer who chooses his victims in the most unlikely of places... only to discover she is his new target. Chicago has a new resident: a soulless killer on a decade-long murder spree. When a young woman is found dead in her fashionable townhome, the FBI is convinced an elusive, organized killer is at work again—a man the local press has dubbed the Cutter Shark. Detective Kristen Conner is a good cop and tough as they come—but she’s never faced an adversary like this. Her life is centered on faith and family: she coaches her niece’s soccer team, always shows up hungry for family dinner, and only misses church when fighting with her mom and glamorous TV news reporter sister—or when hunting a desperate criminal before he strikes again. From the opening chase that brings Kristen to knifepoint in a dark alley, to the concluding moments when she comes face-to-face with the hauntingly familiar serial killer, Cuts Like a Knife is loaded with action, suspense, humor, and wry introspection through the voice of its irresistible lead character

    " Wow ! was I reading the same book? I trudged through 200 pages before I started to skim read. Yuck, this murder mystery was like watching paint dry. No, worse. "

    " Great police procedural about a serial killer and a feisty female detective with a large extended family. Very suspenseful but clean with no sex or language and a heroine who talks to God. Definitely a thrilling thriller. "

    " I read Cuts Like a Knife two weeks ago and I'm still thinking about the characters, the plot, the suspense. And I've even read a couple of books since then! Very eager to get my hands on the sequel and read what Kristen's up against now. Great book! "

    " An excellent thriller, well-written and paced, with just enough detail for realism but nothing gratuitous. Otherwise clean (no swearing, no sex), which I appreciated. I look forward to reading more in this series. "

    " Debut Inspirational -- A little slow to start, but then the action really takes off. This story reads like a thriller and is light on the religious aspect. "

    " Good book. I enjoyed the character of the police woman. The author threw in a second love interest but didn't develop it may be part of a new story that was hinted at in the end. I will recommend it to customers. "
