Publisher's Summary

Deadline is a suspenseful tale that begins in a dusty newsroom, but spins out into a dark world of conspiracy and murder.

Although Dalton Walker is an award-winning journalist, his attempt to write fiction has gone nowhere. So, hungry again for the excitement of headlines and hard-hitting features, he hires on at a small New Jersey newspaper. His job begins with covering a child's death in a fire and a showgirl's Amish background. But these routine assignments soon lead the reporter in unexpected directions: deep into disturbing new emotions and back into his own turbulent past. As Walker tries to obey his reporter's instinct, the risks mount with each piece of information he gathers. His deadlines could be a death sentence.

Author John Dunning captured top places on national best-seller lists with The Bookman's Wake, a New York Times notable book of the year that prompted one critic to comment, "John Dunning writes stunningly good mysteries."
