"exhilarating thriller"

In Port Leo, Texas the doctors have given his beloved father, who raised Judge Whit Mosely and his five brothers, four months to live. As such Whit wants his mother Ellen, who abandoned the seven Mosely males decades ago, to apologize for what she did to all of them before his dad dies. He hires private investigator Harry Chyme to make inquiries though his father did just that when the trail was warm, with no success.

Harry thinks out of the box tracing- Ellen to Montana where she had run off to with a bank embezzler. Then he traces her in Detroit where she cut a deal with the Bellini mob, who relocated with her to Houston. As Whit confronts Ellen, he becomes embroiled in a mob deal involving a five- million-dollar Miami connection and double crosses that test his moral system to the core. Will he choose to protect the person who deserted him or will he opt to obey his conscience. He is encouraged to do so by Claudia Salazaar, the woman he loves.

CUT AND RUN is an exhilarating thriller that runs on two levels. First there is the mob scenario with its double dealings in which Ellen is in the middle. Then there is Whit's ethical dilemma even when murder influences the equation. Thus the audience receives a powerful novel that will add to Jeff Abbott's growing reputation for suspense.

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.

Genre: Mystery, Suspense
