Inhaltsangabe: ?Readers can?t help enjoying this new voice in fiction.? PUBLISHERS WEEKLY SOMEONE NEW HAS MOVED TO TOWN . . . THIS ISN'T GOOD. Chicago has new resident, a heartless killer with a long and bloody history. When a successful young woman is found dead in her fashionable town home, a red flag lights up FBI computers in Washington, D.C. The Feds know an elusive ?organized killer? is at work again. The problem is they have only one tenuous lead to assist the Chicago Police Department in the manhunt ? a most unlikely place the killer hunts for his victims. Detective Kristen Conner is light as a feather but punches hard as a heavyweight. A cop?s kid, her life is built on faith, family, and catching criminals. She coaches her niece?s soccer team, the Snowflakes, when she isn?t fighting with her CPD partner or glamorous TV news reporter sister?or going undercover to find the man who is terrorizing the women of her city. She?s a good cop but she?s never faced an adversary like this. From an opening chase that leads Kristen to a back alley where a punk with a knife awaits her, to the climactic and head-spinning ending where she goes one-on-one with the hauntingly familiar man who is killing innocent women in her city, Cuts Like a Knife, is loaded with action, suspense, and humor through the voice of its irrepressible lead character.
Vom Autor: I have always loved character driven mystery and suspense. From the Hardy Boys in grade school; to James Bond, Sherlock Holmes, and Nero Wolfe in my teen years; then on to spy thrillers by Deighton and LeCarre in college; and then discovering a plethora of great writers from Hillerman, Block, Grimes, Child, Leonard, Mosely, Crais, Silva and a host of others throughout my adult life. I even went through a crime noir faze where I had to reread everything from Chandler, Cain, Marsh and Hammet. I can't forget Graham Greene. The common denominator? Great character development. Heroes and anti-heroes. I've spent 30 years in publishing and have a couple graduate degrees, but the best training I've received to pen my debut mystery thriller comes from the sheer volume of great books I've read. I've had a tremendous amount of fun writing CUTS LIKE A KNIFE - and count it as a tribute to the writers who have brought me so much enjoyment as a reader. I think you will fall in love with my lead character, Detective Kristen Conner. She's tough and in your face. And she's a fragile mess. She loves God, her family, the Chicago Police Department - her dad was a cop - and anything you put on her plate. Doesn't mean she gets along with all parties mentioned - except the food. Kristen also has a secret - but don't expect me to tell you what it is for at least a couple of books!
