Publisher's Summary

They were partners, lovers, soul mates, in a business where betrayal is only a heartbeat away. CIA analyst Caroline Carmichael lost her husband Eric when his plane was blown out of the sky by an elite group of terrorists known as 30 April. For two years, she's headed an Agency task force tracking Eric's killers. Now, her dead husband has surfaced among those responsible for an explosion that rocks Berlin - and for the daring kidnapping of the U.S. Vice President.

The news sends CIA headquarters into turmoil. Desperate to bury evidence of a maverick agent, uncertain of Eric's motives and loyalties, the Agency plays its last, best card: Eric's wife - the Cutout - sent to Germany as bait to reel him and his VIP hostage in from the cold.

Torn between duty to country and the ghosts of her past, the Cutout swiftly finds herself drawn deep into a dizzying maze where even the life of a Vice President is a pawn, Caroline knows that the Cutout will be the first to fall.

    "Gripping Suspense, great characters"

    The Cutcut was the novel that really introduced me to the espionage suspense genre, and it is a great one. It has a great suspenseful story but also we see a character, Caroline, who is torn between her husband and duty to her country. I loved this book when I first read it several years ago and loved listening to it, even though it is abridged. It was a great review to prepare me to listen to the sequal "Blown."
