Their story continues . . .
The four Boston clairvoyants, blessed—or cursed—with special powers, must fight a ruthless enemy and stop injustice. In Dead Cat, Run, the Sisters of Fate drove them together, but at what cost? The God Apollo wasn’t playing around. He’s still dead set on vengeance.
Sinister forces will have a wicked agenda. An energy grab, a mineral rights war, and deadly mercenaries create a mortally serious game. But the psychics’ sibylline abilities aside, they’re only human. At least three of them are. (What’s up with that?)
Can they stop the killers? And who will survive?
An energetic contemporary thriller, Cut and Run will have you on the edge of your seat as the dance between good and evil resumes.
Cut and Run begins about a year after the ending of Run, Cat Run. While each book contains a mystery of sorts, I think it’s important to read this series in the order of release because of the character relationships and the fates.
Max, Sedrah, Jenny and their dog Bones are settling into using their gifts and have made a motley family of sorts, along with their hired protection. Like Sedrah, Max is using his gift to help law enforcement. Their detective friend asks for help with a past case. Something doesn’t add up. A young man who he believed was innocent was railroaded and sentenced.
Meanwhile, a massacre at a mining business is plastered all over the news. Two young people are on the run, and Jenny believes they need to help. Bones agrees. The gods are not done with them and danger is eminent.
Once again, Lewis drew me in. I read until the wee hours. Now that we know the players and series arc, we could dive straight into these cases and watch as Lewis weaved them together and connected threads.
I loved Jenny in this book. She really shines, and was fearless as she faced down the villain. Max, Sedrah, Bones and their close group of allies. We had some intense scenes, and I cheered for our team. The newcomers and their skepticism kept things fresh, and the story moved at a steady clip, keeping me engaged.
Rumor has it the author is working on the third book and I look forward to finding out what happens next.
Fans of contemporary suspense thrillers with a mythological twist will appreciate the characters and storyline regarding the three fates.
