Every Breath You Take

I loved getting to read and read and read some more over during the Thanksgiving weekend. I read several short novellas as well as two full-length novels. Here are my thoughts on one of the novels I read.

Every Breath You Take
M.K. Gilroy
(Worthy Publishing)
ISBN: 978-1617950681
October 2012/365 pages/$14.99

A high-profile murder tied to an online dating service has the Chicago news media buzzing. Who better to go undercover in the world of personal profiles and promising matches than an ace detective who is single . . . and as attractive as she is tough? While Detective Kristen Conner can’t figure out her own dating life, she is about to get a crash course on finding true love (or at least a Friday night date) even as she becomes the object of a killer’s affections.


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 publisher. Gilroy’s debut novel, Cuts Like a Knife, quickly garnered critical acclaim and introduced one of the most unique, fresh, and compelling lead characters in Detective Kristen Conner. Gilroy resides in Brentwood, Tennessee.


I missed M. K. Gilroy's debut novel, but this one makes me want to go back and read it! He has created a fascinating character in Detective Kristen Conner, and he put her through the wringer in this story! This is not a simple follow-the-clues murder mystery. Every time it seems that Conner and her partner (not to mention the rest of the Chicago Police Department) are closing in on the identity of the villain, a new twist arises. Plenty of layers and suspense make this an intriguing novel that I had a hard time putting down. While the case was resolved by the end of the book, I am intrigued and want to know what's up next for Detective Kristen Connor and the CPD!
