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.
