Cuts Like a Knife by M K Gilroy
Kristen is a good cop just like her deceased Dad. But something about this case has her confused and she is even beginning to question herself.
Worthy Publishing and Net Galley gave me the opportunity to read and review this book (thank you). It was published April 3rd in paperback, so check with your local bookstore to snag a copy.
Kristen has a nice guy from the church trying to marry her. She doesn't want to marry, but he doesn't want to take no for an answer. On the other side, her Mom and her sister think she ought to marry him. If that isn't enough to keep her emotions boiling, she now has a serial killer in town and needs to find him. He likes using a knife on his victims.
Her unit soon has other agencies involved in the current murders since the killer has been out there for a while. She clashes with the female psychologist, is a little too interested in the good looking male FBI agent, and has a feeling these murders are leading up to harming her. The answer to that is no, but the victim that is chosen scares her even more.
This is a chilling tour of a maniac's mind. He enjoys the murders, they give him a rush. He's very, very dangerous. And more than one of the folks involved with Kristin will be hurt by him.
Why not get a copy and see if you can figure out who the killer is before the end. He's disguised well and the author allows him to hide in the shadows. You might want to check the shadows around you before you start reading this one...
