Cut and Run

By Jeff Abbott (Mass Market, 2014)

She's a liar.
She's a thief.
She's a killer.

She's his mother. And he'll take on the world to save her.


With his father near death, Judge Whit Mosley launches a search for his mother, who abandoned the family thirty years ago and vanished into the criminal underworld. Hoping to heal the wounds of the past, Whit finds Eve--framed for murder and for stealing five million dollars from a Houston crime cartel desperate to regain their lost power. He has one impossible chance to save his mother: take her on the run, outsmart a gang of sophisticated killers, and find the missing millions. Caught in a nightmare of double crosses and vicious schemers, Whit turns his back on law and order for the one person he most wants to trust but knows the least--a dangerous woman who may be plotting the cruelest deception of all.

  • "Cut and Run made my pulse race and my heart ache. It's a breathtaking, action-packed thriller with brains, guts, and real emotion. Jeff Abbott is the suspense writer to watch." (Harlan Coben).

  • "Cut and Run is first class-a little diamond. If crime novels were music, this would be Jerry Lee Lewis, and there's no higher accolade in my opinion." (The Independent (UK)).

  • "Abbott knows what makes people tick and he has an ear for dialogue that sounds like it's made for a cult TV series... Abbott's observations about the way people interact and the minutiae that make up everyday hoodlum life ring truest this side of The Godfather, and his deceptively simple styles seduces readers into a world of murder, greed, and sheer human fallibility. There will be many superlatives bandied about in reference to this novel, and for once, the sheer talent of its author makes them all true." (Good Book Guide (UK)).

  • "The hottest new writer on the the American crime writing block, Jeff Abbott, makes his British debut with all guns blazing... Abbott slams you back in your chair and hits the throttle from chapter one, leaving you a helpless passenger on a ride that screams around hairpin turns, leaving burning rubber on the road and bullets ricocheting off the pages. ****" (Peterborough Evening Telegraph (UK) ).

  • "Seductive...relentless...each page offers up the kind of brutal action and blunt dialogue that should gratify Abbott's fans." (Publishers Weekly).
