The Cutaway by Christina Kovac, a review
I loved this book. From the beginning words I was hooked. This is the story of a missing woman and so much more. The main character, Virginia Knightly, is a TV news producer, as such she begins an investigation into the missing woman’s disappearance. Set in Washington, there’s a hint of both political and perhaps even police involvement in a major cover-up. What’s so great about this book, is how realistic it is.
Just when I thought I had the plot figured out, it took a surprising turn and making everything look totally different. The unexpected curves that often lead to a dead end bring Virginia closer and closer to danger, and a totally unexpected ending.
Virginia is one of those women who is so immersed in her job, she has no time for the love she yearns for even when it’s right there for the plucking.
The Cutaway has some fascinating peeks into how many are involved and what it takes to put the latest and most intriguing news on the air every single night.
Though dubbed a thriller on the cover, to me it has all the elements of a clever mystery with just the right amount of misleading clues to leave the reader wondering right up to the shocking end.
I’m hoping for a sequel.
(Simon and Schuster sent me this book.)
