The Cutaway by Christina Kovac (ARC)
To be Published: March 21st, 2017
Synopsis (from Goodreads): The Cutaway draws you into the tangled world of corruption and cover-up as a young television producer investigates the disappearance of a beautiful Georgetown lawyer in this stunning psychological thriller, perfect for fans of Paula Hawkins and Gillian Flynn.
When brilliant TV news producer Virginia Knightly receives a disturbing “MISSING” notice on her desk related to the disappearance of a beautiful young attorney, she can’t seem to shake the image from her head. Despite skepticism from her colleagues, Knightly suspects this ambitious young lawyer may be at the heart of something far more sinister, especially since she was last seen leaving an upscale restaurant after a domestic dispute. Yet, as the only woman of power at her station, Knightly quickly finds herself investigating on her own.
Risking her career, her life, and perhaps even her own sanity, Knightly dives deep into the dark underbelly of Washington, DC business and politics in an investigation that will drag her mercilessly through the inextricable webs of corruption that bind the press, the police, and politics in our nation’s capital.
Book Beginning: It began with someone else’s story.
Page 56: “Word is, he comes from loot and clout with judges and politicians on both sides of the Chase family tree, and you know how that plays around here. Golden boy was born with the keys to the kingdom, and all the ass kissing that accompanies it.”
Thoughts: I love crime solving books. So many suspects get brought up and you play along with the narrator trying to figure out whodunnit.
