Overview

Seattle reporter Mimi Raynard is having a bad week. Her ex-husband is now her boss at the TV station and wants her head on a platter. When three prostitutes die of a suspicious heroin overdose Mimi gets the story but in her nervous enthusiasm manages to bungle it. The narcotics detective on the case tries to help but both are out-foxed by the buxom intern. What's a girl to do?

Desperate and out of ideas Mimi takes a friend's advice and dresses up as a Russian Mafiya Madam for a resume tape she has no intention of sending out. But the lark turns serious when the intern steals the tape. At the Seattle Police Department the narcotics detective Shad Mulgrew has his own career crisis. He is framed for stealing drugs from evidence. Are the murdered prostitutes linked to his case? Is he getting too close to the truth? And what is Mimi's father doing working for Eastern Europe's last Communists?

Working together to save their reputations, Mimi and Shad look for the truth, from the fishing docks of Puget Sound to the tiny Republic of Moldova. At turns funny, sexy, and thrilling with an edgy modern voice, Jump Cut depicts Seattle from the inside, from damp streets to dark alleys, from the islands to the top of the Space Needle, as Mimi and Shad search for answers. They wind up salvaging a lot more than their careers in a wild race to save the soul of Seattle, and finding themselves.

"An engaging heroine every woman can identify with: good-natured, smart, harried, all too aware she's growing older. She just wants to catch a break. I loved her almost as much as I loved Rory Tate's breezy, fast-paced writing style!" -- Katy Munger, award-winning author of the Casey Jones mysteries

Book jacket - Katy Munger
“An engaging heroine every woman can identify with: good-natured, smart, harried, all too aware she’s growing older. She just wants to catch a break. I loved her almost as much as I loved Rory Tate’s breezy, fast-paced writing style!”
Amazon.com - Jeanny House
If one can be both hapless and brilliant, emotionally secure and grieving a parentless childhood, independent and longing for connection, then one can be Mimi. A reporter who's had some unfortunate on-air moments, almost certainly because of circumstances beyond her control, Mimi's in search of journalistic vindication. Funny and gritty, cozy and hardboiled, romantic and illusion-shattering. It's also a rollicking good read.
Amazon.com - Page Turner
What a gripping page-turner! I had trouble putting Jump Cut down once I got into it! I thought the subplots were intriguing and came together in a very clever way. The characters were thoroughly developed and plausible. There was something for everyone -- complicated relationships, love, sex, and fascinating information and locations obviously well researched.

    Highly Recommeded!

    Mimi Raynard shares several characteristics of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum. However, she's not from New Jersey but the opposite shore of Seattle, Washington. Murder, a long lost father, an ex husband, trouble at the office, as well as a new love are all rolled into this book. From the minute I started reading JUMP CUT to the final page I was spellbound by the twists and turns of this novel. I'm praying the author follows up with a sequel so I can see what happens next for Mimi!
