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.

***** 5 Star Review *****
I am not sure where I want to go with this review. It definitely wasn't something I was expecting. The cover drew me in. After reading the blurb, I was curious if it would be something I would like. I am not always a fan of crime thrillers. This one definitely was right up my alley!
One of the main things I loved about this book is the perspective it was told from. To have the story given from the news side is not only unique, but it gave the story more intrigue. I definitely wasn't expecting to be so invested with this book.
The characters and plot are so well developed in this book. There wasn't a part in the book that I thought drug or made me want to roll my eyes. (Yes, that happens more often than I would like to admit.) I thought I had it all figured out, then I didn't, then I did... Then I thought the book was ending, but it wasn't finished yet.
Kovac truly has a gift of storytelling. I have had this book stuck in the back of my head for days. DAYS. I can't stop going back to thinking about it. I highly recommend this book to just about anyone. If you can read, then you should read this book.
