As a huge fan of ‘Dexter’ (both Lindsay’s books and the TV series), I knew right at the outset that Scott Blade’s ‘Cut and Dry’ would be right up my alley. But reading it, I realize that while the ‘Dexter’ comparison is understandable, it doesn’t fully give justice to ‘Cut and Dry’s’ distinction as a literary gem in its own right. Scott Blade’s book simply has something else—a certain plot tightness, a specific emotional gravitas that powerfully reels you in and would not let go.

At its heart, this book is about a serial killer who kills serial killers—see, the plot is familiar—but there the comparison ends. Shane Lasher, a top-notch criminal lawyer who specializes in getting high-profile murderers off the hook, has a dark side: he also makes it a point that, although acquitted, those murderers would also disappear. It doesn’t take long, of course, for FBI’s Kirk Cutter to make the connection between Shane and the vanished murderers. Although Shane may be doing a great service to society, Kirk could not afford to just let a “special killer” like Shane to have his way. So while on one hand, Shane is trying to focus on a new serial murderer, on the other hand he also has to shake Cutter off his tail—and he’s running out of time.

As you can see from the free sample chapters alone, ‘Cut and Dry’ is what they mean about the phrase “white knuckle rollercoaster ride.” It is exceptionally entertaining and it will magically make the hours disappear—so it’s best to read this when you don’t have to wake up early the following morning. What’s more, I gather that it’s actually the second book—so there’s more Shane Lasher you can read after this one. Get a copy today. This book deserves all of five stars. ( )
