Publisher's Summary

Let's imagine you're waiting to catch a train.
Would you wonder about the people standing next to you on the platform? Ordinary people, business types. Respectable. Normal. People that you don't need to worry about.
How do you know that they aren't going to suddenly push you in front of an oncoming train?
Of course, they're strangers. They could be capable of anything...but what if you couldn't even trust the people you loved?
What if even your pets acted strangely? If you found yourself being watched by other animals that come and wait outside your house at night, staring up at your windows in the dark?
Martin Hogan doesn't have to imagine this. It's all happening to him right now; his life is about to spiral further and further into the terrifying and inexplicable as he finds out why.
Because even though he doesn't know it yet, Martin Hogan is the man that has to decide the fate of humanity....
Luke Smitherd, author of the Amazon best seller The Stone Man and The Black Room series, asks you once again to consider what you would do in his latest unusual and original novel. A Head Full of Knives is a supernatural mystery that will not only change the way you look at animals forever, but will force you to decide the fate of the world when it lies in your hands.


What the Critics Say

"I had no preconceived idea of what to expect with A Head Full of Knives, and every time I thought I knew where the storyline was heading, Smitherd deftly turned down a new and unexpected path. In a field of genre fiction overflowing with mediocrity and stale ideas - published by large and small press alike - Luke Smitherd stands out as a truly new and original voice."

Great story!

Would you consider the audio edition of A Head Full of Knives to be better than the print version?

Hmm, that's difficult. I really enjoyed reading it and only got the Audible version later to hear it read...and also really liked that. I can't honestly say I preferred one over the other; one was a voice in my head (haha! see what I did there?) versus the lazy (for me, doubtless it was endless effort for the author) version. However if forced to choose, really...who wouldn't pick the charming spoken accent?

What did you like best about this story?

Just..such a good story...scary and yet romantic and intriguing. The whole deal. I can never find books like this any more!

Have you listened to any of Luke Smitherd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Right up there.
