Though not as unusual as 2002’s Black Jack Point , Austinite Jeff Abbott’s Cut and Run (Onyx) is another solid thriller. The ante has been upped—more crooks, more subplots, more shooting—in the third novel in his Edgar- and Anthony-nominated Whit Mosley series. Young Judge Mosley believes he’s found the mom who abandoned his family three decades earlier. She might be mobbed up and running numbers for a strip joint, but her maternal instincts appear to be in full force—or maybe she’s just pulling another fast one on her trusting son.
