Publisher's Summary

Chicago video producer Ellie Foreman has been absent from thriller author Libby Fischer Hellmann's repertoire for almost a decade. Now, in Jump Cut, she's back...and is soon entangled in a web of espionage, murder, and suspicion that threatens to destroy what she holds most dear.
Hired to produce a candy-floss profile of Chicago-based aviation giant Delcroft, Ellie is dismayed when company VP Charlotte Hollander trashes the production and cancels the project. Ellie believes Hollander was spooked by shots of a specific man in the video footage. But when Ellie arranges to meet the man to find out why, he is killed by a subway train before they can talk. In the confusion, she finds a seemingly abandoned pack of cigarettes with a flash drive inside that belonged to the now-dead man.
Ellie gets the drive's contents decrypted, but before long discovers she's under surveillance. Suspecting Delcroft and the ambitious Hollander are behind it, she's unconvinced when Hollander tells her the dead man was a Chinese spy. Ellie and her boyfriend, Luke, try to find answers, but they don't realize how far they have ventured into the dangerous echelons of hidden power - where more lives are on the line - including their own.

Heart Jumping Book

A thriller pitting a giant aeronautical corporation that manufactures drones against Ellie Foreman who doesn’t take being fired as her final cut. She wants to know why and goes to great lengths and danger to get answers. Ellie and her group were hired to produce a video to show the ‘softer side’ of Delacroft. Only to be told that their video is not at all acceptable. Like the headlines of today, this book is right on ‘target’. Terrorism, espionage, drone strikes, murder and kidnapping is all here in this fast paced book, that can make you believe it is not a work of fiction.

Outstanding read!

So many books, so little time to read. I read this book in less than a day! It is that good! I'm a character reader, I get into the characters, their story, who/what they are. The author does a fantastic job of developing Ellie ( even though this is book #5 in the series) quickly & thoroughly. The significant characters in her writing are developed similarly along the way. This book is in all senses of the word, a thriller, you can not wait to turn to the next page. That’s it, no spoilers from me though I can see more about this character in the future. Outstanding read!

Enjoyable mystery

If you could sum up Jump Cut in three words, what would they be?

From the get go the author picked the pace, and though the five in the series you did not need to read the first five...

What about Nan McNamara’s performance did you like?

She matched the pace of the story and made it enjoyable to read

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes

Any additional comments?

As I have said this is the fifth in the series, but she had the ability to let you dip your toe in a book, without being the need to start at the very beginning was enjoyable
