Despite the longstanding resistance to the RH Law, recent news that Senators Loren Legarda and Tito Sotto had maneuvered to lop off P1 billion from the RH fund came as an unpleasant surprise, the cruel cut described as “shocking, immoral and ill-timed.” Well, “well-timed” might be the better description, it being an election year when courting the (unproven) Catholic vote wouldn’t hurt.
Since 2011 began, investors have cut 20% off the market cap at Cisco Systems ( ) , a loss five times as big as the 4% decline we've seen in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEX: ^DJI). But on Tuesday, Cisco shareholders suffered perhaps the cruelest cut of all -- one of their company's own making.
With a fast paced plot and a relatable main character, The Cruelest Cut is a good example of a police procedural thriller. This book follows a successful formula laid out by authors that have come before: a boss feeling threatened by the person working for him, an irrational and evil killer or killers, a police detective with personal issues, and an explosive conclusion. While this was a good story, there was nothing here to set it apart. I enjoyed reading The Cruelest Cut, as police procedural thrillers are among my favorites to read, but I did not find it to be particularly memorable. Detective Jack Murphy is interesting, however, and I would like to see how the author progresses his character in future books.

I thoroughly enjoyed Rick Reed's The Cruelest Cut. This another in the Jack Murphy detective series did not disappoint. The character development was great and the plot and action kept my attention throughout the story. Highly recommended. I also suggest The Coldest Fear, the other detective Jack Murphy novel by Reed.
