Cut and Cover: A Thriller

'“Double the trouble, twice the action, and quadruple the enjoyment—you gotta read this one.” —Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Lincoln Myth and The Patriot Threat“A resounding character study just as much as it is an action novel, and both are equally triumphant.” —Kirkus Reviews“A highly original story and a true page-turner, Cut and Cover grabs you on page one and doesn’t let go. I couldn’t put it down!” —Alison Gaylin, USA Today bestselling author of Stay With Me: A Brenner Spector Novel of Suspense“Meeting John Rexford in Kevin Hurley’s Cut and Cover reminds me of the first time I was introduced to Lee Child’s iconic Jack Reacher. A take-no-prisoners, no-nonsense tough guy with a heart, who infuses the book with a visceral energy that makes it impossible to put down. Cut and Cover is a riveting foray into action noir that combines the best of David Baldacci and Steve Berry, with classic David Morrell. Bold, brash, and bracing.” —Jon Land, USA Today bestselling author of Black Scorpion“We’ve got a new kind of warrior: an assassin of terrorists who has run afoul of the FBI in a page-turner of survival and cunning that will haunt you.” —Nick Lyons, founder of Lyons Press"Synopsis: 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.Critique: An inherently absorbing read from beginning to end, "Cut and Cover" documents author Kevin Hurley as a master of the suspense thriller genre. Very highly recommended and certain to be an enduringly popular addition to community library collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that "Cut and Cover" is also available in a Kindle edition ($14.99)." —Midwest Book Review'
