The Cutaway

By Christina Kovac

The Cutaway: A Thriller by [Kovac, Christina]

4 out of 5 stars

TV news producers Virginia Knightly is drawn to missing poster that comes across her desk. A beautiful young lawyer, Evelyn Carney, left her husband at a restaurant and never was seen again. There is something about her that Virginia can’t forget and she knows, deep in the recesses of her mind, that she has seen her on a cutaway clip for another story. While she tries to flesh out this story, her station is being taken over by a man who has his own agenda. He is letting go of some of Virginia’s staff, even demoting Virginia. With the help of her cameraman and her news anchor, Virginia digs deeper into what turns out to be a scandal involving police, the political scene and much more.

Filled with murder, betrayal and quite a bit of fast paced action, the story takes us into the world of TV politics and real politics. It is entertaining and it moves quickly throughout the story. I liked having Virginia’s backstory to show us why she reacted the way she did. She did not let anything keep her down for long. A few of the characters surprised me a bit and that is always a good thing. If you are looking for a mystery that is a little different from the norm, this one is right up your alley.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
