Seattle reporter Mimi Raynard is having a bad week. Her ex-husband is now her boss at the TV station and wants her head on a platter. When three prostitutes die of a suspicious heroin overdose Mimi gets the story, but in her nervous enthusiasm, manages to bungle it. The narcotics detective on the case tries to help, but both are outfoxed by the buxom intern. Desperate for a new job, Mimi takes a friend's advice and dresses up as a Russian Mafia madam for a resume tape she has no intention of sending out. But the lark turns serious and the fallout is deadly. At the Seattle Police Department, the narcotics detective, Shad Mulgrew, has his own career crisis. He's been 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 careers, 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 the joys of Seattle single life to its dark underbelly, from the lush islands to the top of the Space Needle, as the cop and the reporter try to salvage their reputations. They end up saving much more in a wild race to rescue the city they love. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kristi Burns.

With Deerhunter, Cox has released four studio albums and two extended plays, and as Atlas Sound he has released two albums, several vinyl singles and splits, and over fifty individual tracks on his blog. Cox was born in 1982 in Athens, Georgia, and has used the name "Atlas Sound" to refer to his own music since he was a child, when he recorded on a tape player created by the company Atlas Sound. He is known for having the genetic disorder Marfan syndrome and his live performances with Deerhunter during 2007, in which he would come out on stage in dresses and covered in fake blood. Cox released his first full-length album as Atlas Sound in 2008, entitled Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See but Cannot Feel. In 2009, this was followed by Logos, which leaked onto the Internet two months before its release.
Bestselling biographer Sean Smith takes on the world's number one reality star, Kim Kardashian West. This is the ultimate insight into the reality behind the woman who has defined fame in our modern culture - her childhood, her family, her turbulent love life and the multi-millionaire lifestyle. Kim Kardashian West is a thoroughly modern woman. She enjoyed a privileged upbringing in a Beverly Hills mansion and, ironically, her childhood ambition was to appear in the long-running US reality series Real World. Instead she became the star of Keeping Up With the Kardashians while her own life story read like an X rated version of Dynasty...murder, elopement, domestic violence, sex tape, quickie divorce, churchgoing and impossibly glamorous designer dresses. Now married to one of the biggest stars on the planet, Kanye West, she has begun her own dynasty with the birth of daughter, North, and upcoming second child. In a world that follows her every move, Sean Smith uncovers what it took to get her to the top and how she intends to stay there. From her Armenian heritage and devotion to her family to the fabulous fashions and a body to die for, this is the truth behind the undisputed Queen of celebrity - the real story.
