Cuts Like a Knife
Kristen Conner Series, Book 1
Chicago has a new resident—a heartless killer on a long crime spree. Kristen Conner (think Sandra Bullock in Miss Congeniality) is a good cop and a good girl: she loves her mom, goes to church and coaches her niece's soccer team. And her track record and instincts as a detective are impeccable . . . but this case and this killer expose a blind spot that ultimately endangers those closest to her. Can she catch this hauntingly familiar culprit before he strikes again? Cuts Like a Knife is loaded with action, humor and wry introspection.

About the Author-
  • M. K. Gilroy has helped create hundreds of projects and launch dozens of authors, working in every area of the publishing industry from his first job as a proofreader to executive vice president and publisher—and just about everything in between. Gilroy's debut novel, Cuts Like a Knife, is a tribute to a love for character-driven mysteries and thrillers—with a sprinkling of theology and self-reflective angst added for good measure. Gilroy resides in Brentwood, Tennessee.

    February 20, 2012
    Christian publishing veteran Gilroy debuts as an author (he’s usually the publisher) with a thriller that blends all the elements of the genre: evil criminal, dedicated cop, and exciting ending. Kristen Conner is a detective with the Chicago Police Department, coaches her niece’s soccer team, and struggles with anger. And she’s sure she can catch a serial killer who’s taken up residence in Chicago. Handsome FBI agent Austin Reynolds gravitates to Kristen, who struggles with the patient Dell, a man from church who wants more from Kristen than she’s willing to give, but who also fits the killer’s profile. Sprinkled throughout are diary entries from the killer; poured more liberally is Kristen’s introspection on life, love, family, men, and her fellow detectives, plus a sprinkling of theology, as she struggles to find balance in her world while catching a killer. Genre aficionados may wish for less inner chatter from the intrepid detective and more actual police work, though readers can’t help enjoying this new voice.
