Detective Kristen Conner goes undercover to find a serial killer who selects his victims – all successful young professional women – in the most unlikely of places – only to find herself as his new favorite target.
Chicago has a new resident; a heartless killer on a decade-long crime spree. When a successful young woman is found dead in her fashionable townhome, a red flag goes up in Washington, D.C. The FBI knows an elusive “organized killer” is at work again. The problem is the Feds have only one tenuous lead to assist local police in the manhunt … a most unlikely place the killer likes to find his victims.
Kristen Conner is light one her feet and packs a powerful punch – growing up in a cop’s home, intense hand-to-hand combat training, and not being able to shoot a handgun straight – all encourage that. Her life is built on faith and family: she coaches her 7-year-old niece’s soccer team, the Snowflakes, always shows up hungry for family dinner, and only misses church when she is fighting with her glamorous TV news reporter sister – or relentlessly tracking down a ruthless killer.
Kristen is a good cop but she’s never faced an adversary like this. From the opening chase scene that leads her to a back alley where a punk with a knife awaits her, to the climactic scene where she goes one-on-one with the hauntingly familiar man who is killing innocent women in her town, Cuts Like a Knife, is loaded with action, humor, and wry introspection through the voice of its irrepressible lead character.
Cuts Like a Knife is the debut book in the Kristen Conner Mystery Series. Every Breath You Take is slated for Spring 2013 release.ction.
