A coordinated attack has left seven people dead in just 27 minutes, and journalist Famie Madden is at the heart of the unfolding horror. All of the victims were part of Famie's investigations team, leading to questions about what they were working on that led to such devastation. As Famie begins receiving mysterious messages, she must determine if she's being warned of the next attack or if she's the next victim. Simon Mayo's electrifying novel, Knife Edge, is a gripping thriller straight from tomorrow's headlines about the dangers of the world we live in.
