M. K. GILROY has helped create hundreds of projects and launch dozens of authors, working in every area of the publishing industry from his first job as a proofreader to executive vice president and publisherand just about everything in between. Gilroys debut novel, Cuts Like a Knife, is a tribute to a love for character-driven mysteries and thrillerswith a sprinkling of theology and self-reflective angst added for good measure. Gilroy resides in Brentwood, Tennessee.
Christian publishing veteran Gilroy debuts as an author (hes usually the publisher) with a thriller that blends all the elements of the genre: evil criminal, dedicated cop, and exciting ending. Kristen Conner is a detective with the Chicago Police Department, coaches her nieces soccer team, and struggles with anger. And shes sure she can catch a serial killer whos taken up residence in Chicago. Handsome FBI agent Austin Reynolds gravitates to Kristen, who struggles with the patient Dell, a man from church who wants more from Kristen than shes willing to give, but who also fits the killers profile. Sprinkled throughout are diary entries from the killer; poured more liberally is Kristens introspection on life, love, family, men, and her fellow detectives, plus a sprinkling of theology, as she struggles to find balance in her world while catching a killer. Genre aficionados may wish for less inner chatter from the intrepid detective and more actual police work, though readers cant help enjoying this new voice. (Apr.)2012 Reed Business Information
