Veteran TV reporter Charlotte McNally fights for justice, journalism - and the battle against on-air aging. The good news: She's got explosive evidence to free an innocent woman from prison. The bad news: That makes Charlotte - and someone she loves - the real killer's next target.
Charlotte knows she has what it takes to get the story. Unfortunately, the more Charlotte snoops around, the more people turn up dead.
Hank Phillippi Ryan's novels shine most brightly when she writes the life she knows best. A fast-paced story with well-developed characters, despite a couple of convenient coincidences.
The reader is good, though her breathless delivery makes it hard to hear when the listener isn't in a quiet room.
