The books cover description should be called a major spoiler because it almost tells the story in just a few sentences. I'm glad when I got the book I didn't read the description before otherwise I might have been tempted to not read the book at all.
Luckily the description, even if read, doesn't take away that Smash Cut is an exciting thriller to read.
Just when I thought how great the author had hidden the killer's identity (with hints it might not be the suspect you have in mind) she plain let me know by telling me. At first I was shocked and disappointed but afterwards it made perfectly sense and didn't bother the suspense in the least.
I probably won't go back in time to read Brown's older novels but will keep an eye on new publications.
I thought the book started off with a bang and I was really interested in the main characters, there was a slight twist at the end of the book that I didn't see coming which is unusual.
The plot was fast-paced with many twists and turns, if you like thrillers, you will enjoy this one, it's a bit predictable if you are an avid suspense fan, but when does that stop us from enjoying a well-written story?!
This book is still on the best sellers lists. It is so good you won't want to put it down!
I love her books and "Smash Cut" did not disappoint. Her characters are always believeable and this book plays up the old Alfred Hitchcock movies. And as in his movies, there is a shocking ending. I couldn't put the book down and read it in one day.
Was disappointed in Sandra Brown (again) with this one. Another contrived & convoluted plot which tried too hard to incorporate a love of films with a psycho character who was obsessed with movies. The romance portion was terribly weak.
