Cuts Like a Knife by M. K. Gilroy
Kristen Conner knew what she wanted to do with her life from a young age: follow in her dad's footsteps and work for the Chicago Police Force. Her dream job starts to take over her life and friendships when a serial killer comes to town. The "Cutter Shark" is unlike anything they have ever come up against before, since he has wrecked havoc on several cities, leaving almost 50 dead.
Written in first person, I thought the author did an excellent job at getting inside both a detective's and a criminal's head. I thought that the characters were well developed and enjoyed the banter between Kristen, her family, and co-workers. Kristen has a hilarious sense of humor that makes her quite likeable. The story is fast paced and thrilling, keeping you on the end of your seat till you turn the last page. I'm looking forward to the next book!
