The Cut, Paperback / softback Book

The Cut Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The first in a stunning action-packed series from one of the writers of THE WIRE. Spero Lucas has a new line of work. Since he returned home after serving in Iraq, he has been doing special investigations for a defence attorney.

He's good at it, and he has carved out a niche: recovering stolen property, no questions asked.

His cut is 40%. A high-profile crime boss who has heard of Lucas's speciality hires him to find out who has been stealing from his operation.

It's the biggest job Lucas has ever been offered, and he quickly gets a sense of what's going on.

But before he can close in he tangles with a world of men whose amorality and violence leave him reeling.

Is any cut worth your family, your lover, your life?
