Book review: Straight Cut by Madison Smart Bell

The first 100 pages of this book read like a how-to on film editing. Which would be great if I had any interest at all in the field. Once the story kicked in I found it a little dull.

One thing that could be said for the author; he knows his way around New York City as well as the many locations throughout Europe where the character travels.

Other than that, this book didn't seem like a great fit in the Hard Case Crime series and to me, the tag line on the cover of the book seemed a little misleading. In the end, this was a pretty thin, boring story that was barely worth the dollar I paid for it. Slow and uneventful.

2 out of 5 stars.
