An erotic gay romance, a suspenseful thriller....
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.

The ongoing relationship between the two agents . Leaves you thinking .
Ty . Always an asshole you learn to like .
Great . Nailed down their characters with ease .
Love , hate murder and vengeance . What more could you ask for ?
Glad to see it is the beginning of a series .
I loved the devotion between the two FBI partners.
When Zane Garret saved the life of his partner Ty Grady in the end of the book when he was trapped and chained up behind a wall.
The narrator did an amazing job when telling the story.
i would take out Special Agent Ty Grady. because he is so charming, hes a real smart ass and a hard ass too...but he can get away with it because hes such a sweetheart. and i love his attitude through out the whole book.
I just loved the over all story line...i loved the way it turned out...it would be amazin if there was a second book to go along with the first one...
It was my first gay book to read, and I was very impressed. The story took a little while to get into but once everything started falling in its place… it was very easy and fun story...
I really enjoyed this book. It is a very good read and the characters are the kind that you just can't wait to see what will happen next. A recommend read for anybody who loves a romantic story along with a great mystery.
I was really dubious about this audiobook at first - I'm not really one for the modern crime style story. This story though is really engaging and after only a few chapters you really grow to like the two lead characters. They both have their issues and they thankfully these are not flung aside in preference for the more traditional "happy every after" ending.
The story is brutal at times and whilst there are sexual scenes these are done in a great way - the book is about two men who happen to be attracted to each other and not about sex in any case. If you want a simple boy meets boy, they fall in love and that's it then you will find this hard going. If you want a book that explores how two men who deal with feelings they have for each other then this is great audiobook.
I really enjoyed the print version of this book; definitely a look into several different-from-me cultures (gay and male and violent) and well-written as far as words and grammar, scenes and pacing. The reader, while absolutely perfect in precision and voice (although there is a comment in the book that one of the characters had a 'deep voice', and neither of these guys were portrayed that way) sounded a bit rushed, although the disparities between my 'view' of the book, print v. audio are mine, not the narrator's.
Being a writer myself, I really hate to tear down another writer's work, but this is hands down the worst book I've ever listened to! I got 75% of the way through the book and couldn't bring myself to finish it. The two main characters are FBI agents investigating a serial murderer. They do very little investigating. A good 80% of the book is them in a hotel room constantly bickering like a couple of 13 year olds. This is romance? I was very surprised to learn one was 35 and the other 42 years old. If these were real agents, they'd be the most unprofessional agents that ever lived. I found myself half hoping the murderer would finish them off in one of the assassination attempts but no such luck. The "investigation" was barely mentioned and made no sense. The murderer was inconsistent in his MO yet somehow they had connected the various murders together with no explanation. I am so disappointed to have wasted my money on this book. For what it's worth, I advise you not to waste your time and money on this book.
Cut & Run is unexpected jewel.it features Ty and Zane two veteran FBI agents who have very different ways of solving cases. Ty is all instinct and hunches while Zane is all antithetical and logical. the mystery itself is good but at its core this is a book about two people and what happens between them. The authors have a way of making Ty and /Zane seem real. one thing i do like is that both are flawed. Too often in books about two people one is portrayed as a paragon, that is certainly not the case here. I also enjoyed the fact that both men know who they are. Sure their is as element of is he really into me, but both men know themselves. one other thing of note is the humor very few series can make laugh out loud like this one can.
the narration is near perfect for this kind of book and i wish he had stayed around to narrate the rest of the series. I don't find that Sean Criden is nearly as engaging. (he reads books 3 and 4)
In short the series has become an auto buy for me even though dreamspiiner press has stopped releasing the series in audio, it continues in ebook or paperback. take note that Abigail Roux took over sole authorship in 2012.
A different author and narrator
Words with more than 3 syllables and a plot.
Nobody comes to mind
Not for me.
Reader and Writer from Colorado Springs carefully disguised as a financial advisor all these years. Who knows what lies below a snowy rooftop?
How do books like this get published? If I had a dollar for all the "Tom Swifties" in the dialogue, I could retire. The outcome is so predictable you'll have it figured out in the first 3-4 chapters. Are romances typically written in such juvenile style? Character development is really Freshman Comp.
Keep your money/credits intact, and keep looking!
