In this third installment of the Knight & Day mystery series, Jerry Knight, an opinionated right-wing talk show host, and his partner Jane Day, a liberal reporter for the Washington Post, are caught in the crossfire between power-conscious Washington and media-mad Hollywood. The results are murder. When an aging movie star known for her beauty as well as her political activism is brutally stabbed at the Kennedy Center Honor Awards, the motives and suspects are bicoastal.
Jerry Knight is the “Night Talker”, the opinionated right-wing host of America’s most popular all-night radio talk show. Jane Day is a thoroughly liberated and thoroughly liberal woman, a very ambitious reporter for the Washington Post. When a prominent environmentalist is murdered, Knight and Day race against a deadline, and each other, to solve a mystery that goes straight to the Hill.
Press Corpse brings back the dynamic twosome of Jerry Knight, the “Night Talker” - the brash and opinionated right-wing host of America’s most popular all-night radio talk show - and Jane Day, a thoroughly liberated and just as opinionated leftist reporter for the Washington Post. Their philosophies are light-years from one another. From food to religion, politics to who’s going to win the Superbowl, these two can’t seem to agree on anything. Anything but murder, that is.
