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
