Publisher's Summary

To most people, Maj. John Rexford is a retired marine living in the Catskill Mountains of New York on disability. Even John's girlfriend, Maggie, has no idea he's really a CIA spook recruited in Afghanistan and assigned to kill enemies on US soil. With exemplary skills in hand-to-hand combat and small-arms weaponry, John Rexford completes a string of successful kills, eliminating terrorists and their money supply in the New York metropolitan area. With the FBI hot on his trail for these illegal assassinations, John must find a way to stop an international team of explosives experts from destroying New York City's aqueducts, killing thousands with chlorine gas, and burning the five boroughs to the ground. During his mission John runs afoul of a high-level underworld assassin who uses his mastery of yoga to silently strangle his victims. When the assassin discovers John's one liability - his girlfriend, Maggie - John will have to make a terrible choice between her life and the capture of her abductor. This tightly scripted story begins with a terrorist plot and gradually turns into a clash between two professional killers, with the lives of both John Rexford and Maggie hanging in the balance. As the characters collide with deadly force on the streets of New York in Cut and Cover, the line between right and wrong blurs, long-standing loyalties are questioned, and no one is really sure, even if they succeed, what the final outcome will be.

“A resounding character study just as much as it is an action novel, and both are equally triumphant.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Reluctant Spook

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The book was okay I enjoyed some aspects such as the creative assassination plots, but other than that I had a lot of trouble staying focused on the story. I wondered off frequently hoping the book would hurry up and end

Would you be willing to try another book from Kevin Hurley? Why or why not?

I am not sure at the present about listening to another book by Hurley

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Again the performance was a yawner

Was Cut and Cover worth the listening time?

Just the creative ways to kill that was the interesting part
