body { font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.6em; } .aplus { min-width: inherit; } Organizational psychologist Dr. Waters is a happily solitary guy with a few deep attachments, including to his boss Paresh Rajput, the owner of a thriving hi-tech aerospace company. Until something really bad happens to CEO Rajput, which throws Waters into a lunatic swirl of murderous stalkers, corporate intrigue, amorous female executives and crafty cops who see the inscrutable psychologist as murder suspect #1. Waters is hardly defenseless. A weight-lifter and former wrestler, ace poker player and master student of human nature, he takes it all on with surprising strength and determination. If they only knew. As with the connivers surrounding him, Waters has his own secrets. Autistic as a child, he lives with the consequences some blessings, others a curse. And a love affair that's hidden even more deeply, or so he thinks. You're Dead is a mystery/thriller, an adventure story, though in the context of the present zeitgeist the financial stakes of hi-tech ascendancy and flourishing commerce, corporate and personal venality, manipulations by the rich and powerful men and women and the ugly presence of base criminality that crackles around the fringes. It's about troubled and troubling minds, and institutions that struggle to assert relevance, but also how one man, single-minded and apart, can disrupt what the lead detective on the case calls, "Their clever-clever ways." Every writer has their themes and pre-occupations. For Knopf, it's the intricacies of the mind, the most complex organism in the universe. The aberrations, as well as the indefinable "normal". You're Dead is an action-filled examination of what happens when minds of all kinds collide.

A Compelling Psychological Thriller

5.0 out of 5.0 by William Wells on March 10, 2019
Chris Knopf's new psychological thriller You're Dead is a compelling and masterful take on the genre.
Almost a Crime Noir

5.0 out of 5.0 by Toni V. Sweeney on December 8, 2018
This one starts immediately with the crime and goes uphill from there. Organizational psychologist and one-time diagnosed autistic Waters ("no title, no first name, just 'Waters'") comes home to find his boss' bodyless head on his bedroom floor. At first suspect #1, Waters has to prove his innocence and s discover who killed his boss and why, waving a path through beautiful women, ruthless tycoons, and jealous Significant Others. The little background we get on him shows a man who, with the aid of his brother's determination, rises above and conquers his autism. The mystery of his brother's disappearance/death also leaves the door open for another novel is the author chooses, and if he does, it should be as overwhelming as this one. You're Dead is a story reminiscent of the old crime noir novels of Chandler and Hammett, with plenty of twists and turns, deaths and betrayals, and beautiful but capable and deadly females, brought together in an unexpected finale. If Waters was a licensed PI this would qualify as a hardboiled detective novel.This novel was supplied by the publisher and no remuneration was involved in the writing of this review.

4.0 out of 5.0 by Virginia E. Johnson on March 7, 2019
Dr. Waters discovers the bodiless head of his boss when he goes home. He becomes the first suspect, and decides he needs to find the real killer before he’s arrested for the murder. The case becomes a fantastical investigation, as only the author can pen them, and would have been a first rate detective novel.The publisher went me a book for an honest review. I’ve never cared for the author’s dialogue, but his fiction is certainly topnotch, if not a little beyond belief, but that’s why we read - to escape reality for a few hours in an action-packed mystery with beautiful women and hard men. Highly recommended.
The dark and the sorrowful

5.0 out of 5.0 by Senjiwe Al-Muhadinis on June 23, 2019
What can I say, I appreciate the dark and the complex.Engaging start to what I hope is a new series as I have questions about the protagonist. More reveals are there I am sure.I appreciated how he got and portrayed women as cunning, devious and in for the long game honing their skill sets over time much like serial rapists and killers.The mean girls from high school evolve, and not in a good way.
New protagonist same excellent story writing

5.0 out of 5.0 by JJ Moir on January 16, 2019
I thought this book was a slightly different style from Chris Knopf's previous books but it was equal in every way to the others in that it had crisp writing style, good character development and it held my attention from first page to the last.I can't think of enough good things to say.
