For a limited time The Overlook Press and TouchBooksReader are serving up a lengthy free sample of KNIFE MUSIC, David Carnoy's mystery novel. No, this isn't the full book, but it is over 150 pages (23 chapters) and whole lot more than you'd get from your typical free sample of three or four chapters. And as a universal app, you can read it on both your iPhone and iPad!
Here's what people are saying about KNIFE MUSIC:
“A doctor defends himself from an all-too-plausible rape allegation in this scalpel-sharp medical thriller.
When 17-year-old Kristen Kroiter, a former patient, kills herself after penning a diary entry describing a sexual encounter with him, hotshot emergency-room surgeon Ted Cogan faces an uphill battle to clear his name. Anyone who knows him can imagine the 40-something Cogan, a notorious womanizer with an eye for college girls, in the scenario. For detective Hank Madden of the Menlo Park, Calif., police department, that—along with a personal animus stemming from his traumatic past—is enough to charge Cogan with statutory rape and manslaughter. It’s also enough to draw readers into this subtle and engrossing mystery.
As Cogan struggles to reconstruct that night’s events, first-time novelist Carnoy paints a landscape of complex, flawed characters, mixed motives and twisting intrigue. He takes readers into the toxic office politics of a hospital surgery department, the rancid machinations of a frat house full of horny kids on the make and the romantic fantasies of young girls, fueled by a volatile mixture of innocence and desire. Tautly paced and full of crisp dialogue, Carnoy’s prose is pitch-perfect whether delving into medical and police procedural or sussing out the nuances of campus hookup culture. In Cogan, he’s concocted an appealing, edgy protagonist—cocksure, arrogant and abrasive towards his less competent colleagues and “difficult” patients, but possessed of a roguish charm that makes readers want to tag along, even if they’re not sure where his moral compass is pointing. --Kirkus Discoveries
“Carnoy injects an uncommon level of medical expertise, from physical trauma through hospital hierarchy, into his fine debut thriller about the fraught world of doctors. The novel certainly works as medical drama, but it is also a gripping detective story and a revealing character study about what makes docs tick...Utterly baffling until the very last page.” --Booklist
“Carnoy's debut is gripping, suspenseful, totally believable--and shockingly good.” --New York Times Bestseling Author, Harlan Coben

What's New in Version 2.0
Re-introduced iPad&iPhone universal app book demo, with latest features of TouchBooksReader ebook framework. Contains the first 23 chapters of this unique and captivating thriller.
This book is far more amazing than any other book I've read. It is precise and detailed, yet not so detailed I get bored with it. It tells the sides of two people; Dr. Cogan, the one being accused, and the detective following and solving the case. It's an amazing story with an amazing plot line. I'm sure anyone with a sense in books will love Knife Music.
This is a great read and the application works really well. The portion of the story included is excellent and certainly worth the download.
I heard about this book on a Huffington Post article and decided to check it out. I'm really liking it so far and am thinking about buying the rest ofthe book. Good read
