FIVE KNIVES welds the intensity of Jack Bauer's "24" to the scorching heat of THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET'S NEST.
"The author is a great talent." — Aaron C. Brown, Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer
When a man plummets to his death from an apartment tower, Will Finch's shock soon becomes a nightmare. As he studies the open windows above the corpse, Finch notices a lamp blinking erratically behind a drawn curtain on the eleventh floor.
When he investigates the distress signal, Finch discovers a woman handcuffed to a bedpost. Over the following week, he uncovers a conspiracy that ties the murder to a series of bombshells. The victim's bankruptcy. A global stock fraud. A murder spree that began in Baghdad and is now haunting the citizens of San Francisco. Is this the work of a serial killer, a copycat — or both?
But before he can file his report for The San Francisco Post, Finch's leads evaporate. Within days, three victims are dead. Does a pattern of five knife wounds provide a clue? Can he unravel the mystery before he — and his fiancée — are caught up in the web of murder?
Five Knives is the prequel thriller in the Will Finch crime series — a novel that opens on the first day of Will Finch's journalism career. Everything that Finch learns about crime reporting begins with Five Knives.
