You never know where danger may come from…

6.27am. The sky is blue. The air is warm with a summer breeze. And in the last 27 minutes, seven people have been murdered. In a series of coordinated attacks, seven men and women across London have been targeted. For journalist Famie Madden, the horror unfolds as she arrives for the morning shift.

The victims have one thing in common: they made up the investigations team at the news wire service where Famie works. The thought in everyone’s minds, what were they working on that could prompt such brutal devastation? And as Famie starts to receive mysterious messages, she has to find out whether she is being warned of the next attack, or being told that she will be the next victim…

Knife Edge

This was an excellent read. Who knew a radio DJ would turn out to be such a good writer? But then look at ITV news anchor Tom Bradby. If you haven’t read any of his books, check him out.  But back to Knife Edge. Exciting from the start with a great main protagonist (flawed of course but they need to be don’t they?) and a cast of characters that would make a brilliant TV series. I wonder if this book will be part of a series with Famie and her daughter Charlie and certain others cropping up again – can’t say who because of spoilers. It rattled along and I had to stay up last night to finish it once I had got 75% of the way through. My only issue was with the ‘action scenes’. I don’t blame the author for this. They must be extremely hard to write and I rarely come across a book where they work well when the action unfolds so quickly. They always work better on screen. Having said that it didn’t detract from my enjoyment and I look forward to next book if there is one.

Many thanks to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
