Author Bio

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 publisher—and just about everything in between. Gilroy’s debut novel, Cuts Like a Knife, is a tribute to a love for character-driven mysteries and thrillers—with a sprinkling of theology and self-reflective angst added for good measure. Gilroy resides in Brentwood, Tennessee.

Publisher's Weekly

Christian publishing veteran Gilroy debuts as an author (he’s 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 niece’s soccer team, and struggles with anger. And she’s sure she can catch a serial killer who’s 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 she’s willing to give, but who also fits the killer’s profile. Sprinkled throughout are diary entries from the killer; poured more liberally is Kristen’s 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 can’t help enjoying this new voice. (Apr.)2012 Reed Business Information

    I love this character! She's sweet and funny under her tough exterior. It's not often I read a book and think, "I want to be friends with her" about a main character. The suspense is solid and kept me reading all night. I can't wait to read the second book.

    Great police procedural about a serial killer and a feisty female detective with a large extended family. Very suspenseful but clean with no sex or language and a heroine who talks to God. Definitely a thrilling thriller.

    This book is phenomenal! The heroine is deeply flawed, yet still entirely likeable. The action scenes are incredibly realistic, taking into consideration female limitations, injuries, and adrenaline surges. And the twists are perfectly timed: You're positive you've figured it out, when all of a sudden you realize how wrong you were - they're twists you didn't see coming, yet in hindsight, they make complete sense.

    This is one of the best-written books I have read in a long time (and I read quite a bit!). I cannot recommend it enough.

    Cuts Like A Knife was either about a very dumb detective or it was written by a very poor writer. That was my initial opinion about half way through the book. I may have been right, I may have been wrong. But whichever, the book was worth the time I spent working through the story.

    Kristen is a Chicago cop and the daughter of a Chicago cop. Though her father had died the previous year, he was a well-respected member of the force. And that connection provided part of the support needed for the promotion to detective.

    What she did not know was that she was the primary target of a serial killer - his fifty-third target. But it was not only her life that was in danger, but it included her partner, Don, the team composed of CPD cops and the FBI assigned to the case, and her family that were at risk.

    Though the story focuses on the search, identification, and capture of the serial killer, there is also a glimpse at what the God's grace can offer to broken people - even people who do not know they are broken. Kristen needs to experience that grace, but she also learns to share that grace with those around her.

    Written entirely in the first person, by Kristen, a Chicago based blogger, and the serial killer himself, the story holds the reader's attention from chapter one (written by the serial killer) to the last page. I will look forward to future books from this new author.
