Six years ago, witness protection marshal Roland Larson did the unthinkable: he fell in love with a protected witness, Hope Stevens, whose testimony was to put away prominent members of the Romero crime family. When Hope's plan to cut and run is interrupted by both the government and the mob, she disappears into a new identity, taking with her not only her testimony but a secret never shared with Larson.

Larson, who has been looking for her ever since, is put back on her trail when the Romeros intercept the master WITSEC list from the Justice Department, and Hope is believed among the first protected witnesses to be targeted for execution.

In a series of terrifying encounters, Larson matches wits with a brutally ingenious killer whose sole target is Hope Stevens. For Larson, the stakes couldn't be higher - he must find Hope in order to protect her and simultaneously prevent the mob from auctioning off the master witness protection list - an act that will put 7,000 innocent, and not-so-innocent, lives in jeopardy.

Taut and edge-of-the-seat compelling, Cut and Run is a unique thriller that skillfully blends romance and suspense - Ridley Pearson at his heart-pounding best. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 2/13/2014

    " Great book! Tightly written and colorfully drawn, the story moves fast so it isn't a book to pick up if you have other "thinking" things to do. Dick Hill is a gifted narrator; convincing voices and skillful storytelling make the story an outstanding audio book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 2/9/2014

    " Richard and I listened to this on tape on our way to Muir Woods. I didn't enjoy it as much as I enjoyed reading his "Art of Deception," which could have been the format or the story. It was engaging, and fun to listen with someone else. We sometimes turned it off to talk about what would happen next, or the fact that the main character can never manage to fire his weapon properly, and that was fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginny | 2/7/2014

    " What would happen if the list of all persons on the Witness Protection were stolen and put up for bid to the highest bidder? This is one of the premises of Pearson's book. Suspense is created by a personal relationship between one of the Witness Protection agents and a past protectee who has dropped out of the program, but is high on the crime family's hit list. A child is involved and is a little to precocious for belief, but adds to the suspense. Good Read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glennie | 1/30/2014

    " A bit slow and disjointed in the beginning, but then the action picks up, and it is a non-stop read after that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 1/28/2014

    " I really don't care for kidnap stories. While some of this story involves a cunning villain brutally pursuing his prey, too much of this story revolves around innocent victims of both mature and young. 5 of 10 stars "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 1/24/2014

    " Way too violent for my taste, and the characters constantly do stupid things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melinda Sumurdy | 1/8/2014

    " Good book - intrigue "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 1/4/2014

    " This was another audio book I listened to. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shan | 12/24/2013

    " Excellent. Really enjoyed it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J.W. Thompson | 10/9/2013

    " An excellent book about witness protection. The book held me in suspense and I could not put it down until I finished it. The characters were well developed so you cared about them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 10/4/2013

    " Ridley Pearson can be counted on for a story that will keep you reading--in this case, keep you listening. The reader makes a difference, of course, to the enjoyment of the book, and this guy is good. The book got me through a lot of housework! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 6/24/2013

    " Solid writing and moving plot. Don't know if this is a series but I liked it enough to read more by this writer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ogross | 4/15/2013

    " I was hoping to find an author to fulfill my Lee Childs/Connelly/Crais fetish. This didn't cut it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John | 3/18/2013

    " This book would serve a writing class as a template for editing. Every non essential word and phrase was cut out, leaving only plot and action. Didn't leave much for character development or anything complex. Nothing remained but fast paced pulp fiction. Ridley is a better writer than this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherri K | 2/22/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. took a bit to get into. not up to the walt fleming novels he wrote, which i love, but i would say it's a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hrn1947 | 2/3/2013

    " OK, no big deal. Straight razor killing gives me the creeps. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 12/24/2012

    " I liked this book. Kept me interested to the end. Sure know I'd never want to be part of the government witness protection program though. Might have to drop everything and run with a moment's notice, then pray no one found me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric Mann | 11/3/2012

    " Pearson delivers with good character development, fast moving plot and suspense. Some of his other works are more refined but he shows here his talent as a storyteller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy | 8/10/2012

    " Wonderfully drawn characters, even the 5-year old, grabbed your heart and wouldn't let you put the book down. This was every bit as good as the Sun Valley series, which as an Idahoan I love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marion | 5/29/2012

    " exciting, fast read, good characters, a bit hokey at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 1/27/2012

    " This is a good story well told. Pearson avoided many of the hackneyed story telling tricks - especially those so easy to fall back on when children are in the stories. All of his characters are credible as is his story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Melendez | 1/14/2012

    " Pearson can't write a bad book; loved it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dona | 5/4/2011

    " It was a good airplane book. The characters were one-dimensional. And the plot including the kids and what they did far-fetched. "
