Out of the blue, reporter Reebie Mahoney receives a call from the former mistress of an American president, and she wants to talk - now. Dropping everything, Reebie goes to meet the woman at her apartment. As she is standing outside the door, Reebie hears gunshots coming from within. In a matter of moments the woman is dead and Reebie becomes the LAPD's chief suspect. This event is only the beginning of an elaborate cover-up designed to protect the secrets of a political dynasty.
This book kept jumping around in time and came off as jumbled and choppy. It would take me a while to even realize the timetable had changed and I often forgot who characters were. The narrator's voices were very similar and didn't help the situation.
The first part of the plot was a little interesting, but the second part brought what little spark there was down and the ending was just lame. The heroine spent far too much time emoting and the hero was quite unremarkable.
