Jump Cut: An Ellie Foreman Mystery by Libby Fischer Hellmann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"Jump Cut" by Libby Fischer Hellmann
Another great novel by Hellman. It has all the ingredients of a very entertaining read: intrigue, espionage, murder, mystery and a touch of humor.
You wouldn’t think that shooting and producing a promotional video for an aviation company could be that interesting. And you’d be right. Well, perhaps not the details of the production, but most certainly the fallout from being fired is. Ellie Foreman put forth what she thought was great work, but apparently big-wigs from Delcroft Aviation didn’t agree.
Knowing there must be more to the story than the seemingly unexplained lack of predilection for her project, Ellie just can’t accept her termination from the assignment and sets out to find out what really happened. She soon realizes there is indeed more to what she was told. Reaching out to the wrong people to ask questions catapults Ellie into the world of traitors and double dealing. She ends up with something that too many people want for all the wrong reasons. And those people will stop at nothing to get it back.
Riveting is the first word that came to mind as I read this. I do, like Hellmann’s other works, recommend this novel if you want a great entertaining read.
