If it bleeds, it leads. It's a media mantra-the most gruesome stories always run on the front page to get people's attention. But when Corina Vasquez lands a bloody lead story she attracts the attention of a killer, in IF IT BLEEDS. Newly promoted as the assistant to Matthew Henderson, California's Valley Voice investigative reporter, Corina wants only to prove to her boss, her coworkers-and herself-that she's the right choice for the job. When the body of the city's first woman mayor is discovered in a dusty vineyard-and Matthew is nowhere to be found-Corina gets her chance. Then a second brutal murder connects to the first. As she unearths the details around both killings, Corina begins to suspect that she's merely skimming the surface of a very deep conspiracy. And only one person can help her-acting mayor Wes Shaw, the man who broke her heart. Wes wants her back; Henderson wants her off the story. And as her reporting of the case thrusts her into the limelight, Corina realizes she's become a target for an unpredictable-and desperate-enemy.
