About the Author

David Callinan is the author of sci-fi classic Fortress Manhattan and co-author of bestselling guide to holistic health The 10 Minute Miracle. Born into a family in the west of Ireland he grew up in the UK. After graduating from art school he did a host of jobs from telegraphist to salesman – busked around Europe then rediscovered Irish music and formed The Spalpeens. In his early teens he appeared in films such as The Lion In Winter and Sinful Davey and scores of television advertisements. Later, he formed Urban Clearway, touring and performing with artists such as Elton John, Billy Connolly and Rod Stewart. He co-wrote a Celtic rock opera for the Edinburgh Festival. 'Pucka-Ri' starred Pierce Brosnan and became one of the hits of the Fringe, before transferring to the Arts Theatre in London. Latterly, an earlier spacey, folk-rock album, Freedom's Lament, recorded by Callinan-Flynn, has emerged as a highly sought after title on the Internet. He has written screenplays, thrillers, YA fantasy and a children’s chapter book series. He lives in Herefordshire.

I have just finished Knife Edge by David Callinan and I have to say I do have rather mixed feelings about it. It is totally far fetched and most of the things happening in it just could not happen. You have to read this book with that in mind. Having said that I also have to say that I did enjoy it.
Without giving too much away, it is about some of the clients of a plastic surgeon and indeed the surgeon himself. Some of the things that go on there are totally unbelievable. But then I do not know anything about plastic surgery and I could be proved wrong. It is quite a violent story in places with the odd smattering of sex thrown in but it all fitted in with the story and was not overdone. There are too many murders with the police always two steps behind to make this story believable. All of this sounds like criticism which I suppose it is but as I say read this book with an open mind and I think you will enjoy it.
I felt the writing was good and the story flowed nicely. It is a fast moving story and yes I did find it, while not exactly unputdownable (is that a real word??), I did want to pick the book up again to carry on and see what happens. I would definitely read other books by this author.
Whether I would recommend this book to everyone I don't think I would. But I think that if you do try it you may well not be disappointed.

If you are a fan of Clive Barker or Thomas Harris and like your thrillers a little weird then this book is for you. I'm not really sure how ugly these people are meant to be but it does a bit of good using your imagination and wouldn't it be amazing if you could just be transformed into someone amazingly beuatiful that easily!!! You do have to go along with this book but as I find with a lot of stories by this author, once you get into it all and start going with the flow of the story you really do want to keep reading. In parts it is a tad futuristic which helps the story to work.

If you like thrillers that are offbeat and a little weird but with a central idea that just nags away at you then you will like this book. It's about two clever kids at a US college who are ugly, or at least, slightly disfigured and their plan to take over the life and fortune of a rich kid who has everything. There has to be a way of doing this and that is down to a brilliant plastic surgeon who turns the girl into a dazzling beauty and the boy into a dead ringer of the man he hates. From then on it rattles along at a good pace and even seems to leave scope for a sequel

5.0 out of 5 stars Rethink Going "Under the Knife!" 21 May 2012
By Glenda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the first line of description on Amazon:

The year's most terrifying psychothriller.

Sooooooo true!

OMG, I was breathless by the time I finished Knife's Edge! While there was more horror in this novel, the thriller action moved so fast that you barely had time to "cringe" at what was happening! I'm not kidding, by the time I was reading the last chapters Pages were flying by! Horrible, but not the slasher type--this author makes you "think" of the horror as it happens rather than draw out the details! After all, it doesn't take much when the knife is sharp and ready...

One key hint to readers--make sure you pay attention to all characters. You never know when they will come back to haunt...

Some may say that we live in the time of the beautiful...and if you aren't, then there are all different kinds of potions and methods by which you can improve your face or every part of your body...

But by the time that Dr. Thomas Startz had built Heaven's Gate, the technology, along with his training and expertise was so refined that he could change the entire body! Indeed he had--he had recreated his own sister. Everybody speculated whether they were siblings--the way he looked at her and the way they were always together... So they had decided to go off and do their own thing but that was so depressing for the doctor to not see his creation--that is, until he met Ella Fallon, immediately after she had won $2M!

Ella had just graduated and left home. She was also trying to forget her close friend who now was in a coma from which he might not awake. Did she really love him? Should she just try to move on instead? Ella had never had a boyfriend; she considered herself ugly and had always prayed to somehow become beautiful.

She had met Ed Leeming at College. They were both on scholarship, avoided by the other students, and both were, just not attractive. One day Ella had been the brunt of jokes made by Scott Stockton, the rich, handsome boy who was the most popular--everything... Ed Leeming had stood up for her that day...

And Scott Stockton intended to pay Leeming back... And once it was over, it was forgotten. He didn't even know that Ed Leeming had been unconscious for over a year... Scott was now looking to make changes in his father's company!

Now, Ella, having left home, friendless, turned to Dr. Thomas Startz, and said "yes" to all that he offered!

And throughout this story, in many lives, the knife edge brought about changes--one that was beautiful now was not. Another became beautiful and captured the attention of a man she hated, another was changed without giving permission..and so much more... This is a horror story, readers. And when the knife edge cuts, it does just that, literally! Will any make it through what happened?

If you have ever considered going "under the knife" to improve your image, either don't read this book... or plan to rethink...

If you thought Stephen King's Carrie sought revenge...you haven't seen anything yet!

PsychoThriller - Indeed! And I loved It! Get It Now!
