A seven year old girl, Autumn Backman, contacts FBI Special Agent Dillon Savich after seeing a show about him on TV. She is able to communicate with Savach telepathically.

In Titusville, VA. Autumn runs away and hides in the home of Sheriff Ethan Merriweather. She tells Ethan that a man who goes by the name of Blessed is after her and her mother, Joanna and warns Ethan not to look into Blessed's eyes because he can control a person's thoughts once they do look him in the eye.

Savach had disrupted a bank robbery and killed one of the robbers. He was attempting to find the last survivor and the person who drove the get away vehicle when Autumn contacts him again, asking him to help her.

The reader learns that Blessed is Autumn's uncle who with his thought control ability wants to take Autumn back to the Virginia homestead where the family can benefit from her ability.

When Savich attempts to help Autumn, the two bank robbers cvome to his home to take revenge on his family. FBI were watching Savich's house and the two barely escape.

"Knock Out" is a fun read. The action never stops and the reader is caught up in the excitement. The author states that she is influenced by Agatha Christie and Michael Connelly among others but in this tale where many people have extra sensory ability, it seems that Stephen King and his novel, "Firestarter" is also an influence.

Hop aboard for the ride. You'll enjoy it.
