Cut And Run – Mary Burton

I was fortunate to receive this novel from Netgalley.com as an Advance Reader Copy, in exchange for an objective review.

Texas Ranger Mitchell Hayden heads out to visit an old informant who called with some news and finds him dead in a lawn chair on his deck, with injuries clearly inflicted by another, indicating that Jack Crow was likely tortured before he died. As Mitchell assesses the scene, he notes that the home was trashed by someone who was looking for something, but there are no further clues to be found.

Dr. Faith McIntyre, medical examiner for Travis County and occasional lover of Mitchell, performs the autopsy on Crow’s body, discovering that the victim didn’t have long to live, due to pancreatic cancer. She and Mitchell surmise that Jack had wanted to clear his conscience of something.

Macy Crow, FBI agent and daughter of the deceased, arrives into town to assess the circumstances of her fathers death as well. Accessing a small hidden panel in her father’s home, she finds some clues he had left, including a burner phone with three addresses. As she visits each place, she becomes more convinced that there is a problem. One of the addresses leads to the ME’s office – and Macy discovers that she’s a dead ringer for Faith. Then she is run down by a truck and left for dead.

As Macy fights for her life, Mitchell and Faith investigate the secrets that died with Jack, and Faith tries to trace her roots and find her relationship to Macy. But someone else is watching too, and doesn’t want Faith to find the answers…

This book had me from the first page, and I read it cover to cover in a few hours! Great storyline, classic suspense/romance/intrigue and I loved the characters!! Hoping for more of Mitchell & Faith in the future!! Great read!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
