Description

The Newsroom meets Gone Girl.” —Cosmopolitan

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.

Harkening to dark thrillers such as Gone Girl, Luckiest Girl Alive, and Big Little Lies, The Cutaway is a striking debut that will haunt you long after you reach the last page.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 23, 2017 – Washington, D.C., TV producer Virginia Knight, the narrator of TV journalist Kovac s nail-biting first novel, takes an interest in the case of a missing woman, attorney Evelyn Carney, who was last seen running out of a Georgetown restaurant after a public fight with her husband. When Evelyn s body is found in a cove on the Maryland side of the Potomac, Virginia applies her reporter instincts and nose for a good story to investigate the murder. Meanwhile, she s beleaguered by Nick Mellay, a new manager at her station, who starts firing members of her staff and takes over her job, supposedly temporarily. Still, she manages to follow leads from police commander Michael Ledger, an ex-boyfriend of hers, and from Paige Linden, a law firm colleague of Evelyn s, which point toward Ian Chase, an assistant U.S. attorney, as a person of interest. As Virginia starts uncovering information being withheld from the investigation and irregularities in witness statements, she s left in doubt about whom to trust. Readers will want to see more of this tenacious, lovable heroine.

Customer Reviews

great lead and hooking storyline

Knightly is a producer for a news network. She also has a troubled history with her family and basically a photographic memory. Those traits cause her to focus more on aspects that others might overlook. She sees a piece on a missing woman and can't let it go. Most everyone in her life seems to be trying to hinder her digging deeper into the woman's story. Murder, mystery, politics, detectives, witnesses and more come into play. She isn't a cop, but she is an investigative journalist out to connect the answers and expose the coverups. She's a likable lead, and the storyline is great at keeping the reader hooked and guessing. Anyone could be guilty. The Cutaway was a win for me, and I'm definitely going to be following this author's future works.
