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

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!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
