Review: Divide & Conquer (Cut & Run #4) by Madeleine Urban, Abigail Roux

Baltimore, Maryland, is a city in alarming distress. Rising violence is fanning the flames of public outrage, and all law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, are catching blame. Thus the FBI’s latest ideas to improve public relations: a municipal softball league and workshops for community leaders. But the new commitments just mean more time Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have to spend apart when they’re happily exploring how to be more than by-the-book partners.

Then the latest spate of crime explodes in their faces—literally—throwing the city, the Bureau, and Ty and Zane’s volatile partnership both in and out of the office into chaos. They’re hip-deep in trouble, trying to track down bombers and bank robbers in the dark with very few clues, and the only way to reach the light at the end of the tunnel together requires Ty and Zane to close their eyes and trust each other to the fiery end.

At four books deep into this series I am convinced that Ty and Zane will never catch a break when it comes to injuries. These men stay seriously injured. This go round it is Zane mostly. The injury is really an eye opening experience for the two men as a couple. While I hated reading Zane in this state I loved how it made him see things with Ty that he had been struggling with.

I mentioned in my review of the first book in this series that I started them wrong. I read Shock and Awe, the first Sidewinder book as soon as it came out. Zane and Ty are present there. Nick and Kelly the main characters in Shock and Awe have some page time here in Divide and Conquer. In fact Ty’s whole Sidewinder team stops in for a visit. It was great to read some of the characters that Ty mentions as friends. It also becomes an interesting experience for Ty. He has his own realizations about things he had never seen before.

The ending will have any reader diving right into the next book in the Cut & Run series. I wouldn’t describe it as cliffhanger, but it makes me want to start the next one immediately. I’m still loving these guys. They are just off their rocker enough that you have to read them. I am constantly curious about what they will do next, or what they will say next, and I never know what to expect from them. Ty and Zane keep things mixed up by constantly doing the unexpected.

Favorite quote, Zane to Ty: “I’d rather be here with you than somewhere else alone.”
