Description
A powerful editor is found dead in the newsroom--stabbed with the very spike he would use to kill stories--and in the cutthroat offices of "The New York Globe," anyone could be the murderer. Could it be the rival newspaper tycoon? The bumbling publisher? The steely executive editor?
As more bodies turn up, it will fall on Priscilla Bollingsworth, a young and ambitious NYPD detective, and Jude Hurley, a clever and rebellious reporter, to navigate the ink-infested waters of the case. A cunning and pitch-perfect portrait of the declining newspaper industry, this rollicking novel entertains from the first to the last.
