Cut & Run Series: Book One

A series of murders in New York City has stymied the police and FBI alike, and they suspect the culprit is a single killer sending an indecipherable message. But when the two federal agents assigned to the investigation are taken out, the FBI takes a more personal interest in the case.

Special Agent Ty Grady is pulled out of undercover work after his case blows up in his face. He's cocky, abrasive, and indisputably the best at what he does. But when he's paired with Special Agent Zane Garrett, it's hate at first sight. Garrett is the perfect image of an agent: serious, sober, and focused, which makes their partnership a classic cliché: total opposites, good cop-bad cop, the odd couple. They both know immediately that their partnership will pose more of an obstacle than the lack of evidence left by the murderer.

Practically before their special assignment starts, the murderer strikes again - this time at them. Now on the run, trying to track down a man who has focused on killing his pursuers, Grady and Garrett will have to figure out how to work together before they become two more notches in the murderer's knife.

    Favorite series! Looking forward to listening to it for the first time. However, the excerpt at the beginning of the book was inconvenient and poorly planned.

    If I could give this no stars I would. Dreadful on every level - inane and meaningless. All filler, no story. And I am not exactly looking for high grade literature. Do yourself a favour and don't.

    *Warning-there is an except at the beginning of this book to the NEXT book. i don't know who thought it was a good idea to put that at the beginning and not the end. I thought it contained spoilers to Cut & Run and was annoyed at being forced to listen to it. For anyone else who doesn't want to listen before the excerpt is 31 minutes and 14 seconds long so you can skip to that spot if you prefer.***** There are really two elements to this story. The first is the romance and the second is the mystery. One, I loved, the other was just okay. Since I had different feelings for each of its components, I decided to break down my review to share my opinion on both parts. The Romance: This was the part of the story I loved. I thought the character development was excellent. I really liked the clash of personalities between the main characters. It was a fantastic example of hate at first sight turns to love. I literally felt the nervousness the characters experienced when they first discovered their feelings for each other. They are both bisexual men who are completely in the closet. They have to hide the fact that they are gay because they work in a career that lives by the “don’t ask don’t tell” philosophy. It’s difficult for them to admit they have feelings for the other, especially when they have no idea if the other man is gay or will be receptive to their advances. I thought the author(s) did a fantastic job on the relationship aspect of the story. If I was rating just the romance the book would get 5 stars from me. The Mystery: This was the part of the story I had a bit of trouble with. I liked the concept, but the actual clues and investigation I found lacking. The main characters are FBI agents investigating a serial murder case, but they don’t actually investigate much. There are almost no interviews with witnesses or deduction of clues. Mostly, they just spend a lot of time reviewing files and dodging attacks from the killer. I couldn’t really understand why the killer was targeting the agents since they weren’t figuring out much of anything on their own. I think the attacks were meant to be a way to get them out of the way so the killer wouldn’t get caught, but he didn’t really need to do it. If he just left the detectives alone they would’ve never solved the case. The only reason they did solve it is because the killer revealed himself—and I need to add that I knew who the killer was from the first meeting. It wasn’t a surprise AT ALL. If I was rating the mystery aspect of this story then it would’ve been 2 stars. Overall, I did enjoy the story, but wished the detectives were able to actually use their detective skills to solve the case. I definitely wouldn’t want them investigating any cases for me. I decided to average my rating for each part which is where I came up with 3.5 stars. Still, I’ll try another book in this series to see where it takes me.

    I've read this series previously, and love the long, slow build of the relationship between the two MCs, along with varied settings and storylines. Now that I've transitioned to mostly listening to audiobooks, I wanted to revisit this series. Due to problems with Dreamspinner not paying some of their authors, there has been an exodus by authors from that publisher. This series has apparently gotten caught in the lurch, and appears to be the ONLY site that currently has the first 5 audiobooks of the series available. This first one is FRUSTRATING because there are no chapter breaks and it inexplicably starts with a 30 minute preview of the SECOND book. Confusing as hell. I actually wondered if I had accidentally bought the wrong audiobook. So, it's hard to rate. I would give the book 4-stars but the audiobook... I don't know, maybe 2?

    I absolutely love this book! One of my favorites! It took me a little bit to warm up to the narration but when I got used to it I really enjoyed it!

    Basically porn! Quit listening to it!

    This book is more of a love story between co workers than a mystery of any kind. It should be in the romance section.

  • David W.

    My ultimate advice is that this is definitely worth listening to. I was engaged the entire time because of the hesitant yet persevering pair trying to reach one another heart-wise. Though the murder mystery side of it all could probably be summed up in a couple of pages, I was always on edge since I never knew when it was about to continue its unfolding. I never felt like Ty and Zane were safe. That’s for sure. So, I suppose my only criticism is about the narration. If there were never any moments of intense physical pain, moments where an embarrassed whisper was made, or moments of ecstasy, I’d give the narrator five stars. Unfortunately, the complete misfit of intonation, cadence, and volume during such times was so disappointing and they often made me mad because the story deserved so much better! I’ve never heard a narrator for this genre sound like he was telling a children’s bedtime story. I mean, come on, at least whisper when it’s a whisper, no? During a moment of ecstasy, don’t sound like you should when reading “Then, he took a sip of coffee.”

    I listened to this audio for two hours driving across the flat brown desert and decided that the desert was so much more interesting than this book. It went on and on and said nothing. Don’t waste your time or money on this never ending never going anywhere story.
