Apr 11, Debbie rated it it was amazing. I really enjoyed this book. This was one of that books that kept me up reading at night. There are 10 books in the series and I'm so happy that the local library has the whole set, because I will be reading through them. Jul 02, Jerry B rated it liked it. Many speak to the similarities of style -- a dashing and gorgeous wholesome single mom, young widow, and accomplished professional leading lady who overcomes all odds; enough violence and suspense to entertain and befuddle; and a nice clean ending we can all feel good about.
Well hopefully that could be said about many a good book. The differences we see are more interesting. First the venue -- set mostly in the surrounds of a major news network, midst the tribulations of the early morning shows and anchor broadcasts at night, we certainly get ala the movie "Network News" plenty of up close looks at the pressured lives on the news set. In the best tradition of write about what you know about, MJ speaks from personal experience as a producer and writer for CBS News.
Indeed, Dan Rather gets a cameo mention in the story, as he does in the acknowledgments Who wants to know a secret front for his encouragement to the author. We just hope the romances reported among many co-workers aren't quite that prevalent, although as we know, propinquity is a powerful force said Zelda to Dobie Second, we get a pretty good story line. The first shocker is the apparent suicide of a famous anchor, followed thereafter but paced well by the murders of his doctor and his secretary.
Even the most dense of us realize the connections, though the trained newshounds seemed to miss it. A big surprise at the end serves up a murderer we dare say few suspected more than a or two before the unveiling, so high marks for suspense. Third, and of course not as welcome, we do get an awful lot of characters, relationships, AIDS pleas, disease causes, snippets of events, changes in scenery, etc. Certain loose ends never do get wrapped up, and we're not even sure that a major subplot, the campaign machinations of a presidential candidate, really advanced the basic story line that well.
We also personally disliked chopping the book up into ! And the last 35 span only 25 s, so we're down to barely more than the "sound bites" so lovingly quoted throughout.
So - for her first outing of four to datenot bad. Clean things up, simplify a little, give us a little longer reading stretch with out raising and lowering the curtain a hundred times, and we might have something here. We'll at least move on to 2 - "Do you promise not to tell?
And you? Sep 10, Megargee rated it liked it. This would not be an issue except for the fact that it has no less than chapters!
I soon realized that if I stuck to my usual practice of reading a chapter each evening at bedtime it would take me several months to get through it. Happily some chapters are only three or four sentences long so I was able to increase my pace. Published inthis novel had several plot elements that were eerily contemporary as I read it in the summer ofnamely a threatening epidemic AIDsa national political convention nominating a candidate of questionable morality, and a bright female newscaster not unlike Nicole Wallace taking over the KEY News anchor slot.
One would think the author knew her way around a newsroom which, being a long time CBS News producer and Dan Rather protege she does. All in all, a promising start to the 12 volume KEY News series of mysteries. Dec 03, Lynn Mccrea rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this book on the next one in the series. Dec 09, Ann Marie rated it it was amazing. Exciting fast-paced mystery with suspense throughout.
Very likable and interesting characters set in the dynamic world of broadcast news. New York news anchor Eliza Blake is thrust into the mysterious web of deception as a series of murders all centered Who wants to know a secret a common thread quickly takes center stage. Coverage of a presidential election brings government and politics into the news spotlight.

Very enjoyable first in a series by Mary Jane Clarke. Jan 15, Kathy Sandlin rated it really liked it. I've read most of the Mary Jane Clark. Kind of found her by accident since she was right with the Mary Higgins and Carol Higgins in the bookstore. Good re They are nice fast re. I'll just add a few to the list I've read most of the Mary Jane Clark. I'll just add a few to the list This was a well-laid out story, slowly letting bits of investigative information out as it is uncovered - and I was rather surprised by the revelation of the killer. Looking forward to checking out the next book in the series.
May 13, Katrina Sharp rated it really liked it. Not too bad. I enjoyed it. Some parts were a little slow but it was good overall. The end had an interesting twist but still left things unanswered. For example, what happened to the homeless man? May 02, Donna rated it really liked it. At the beginning, a son comes home to find his father dead in a chair. As readers quickly find out, the dead man is the evening anchor for a major news channel and his death will send reverberations throughout the country, including the presidency.
Eliza Blake is the morning TV anchor, a widow, and a mother. Her star is rising but jealousy is dominant in the TV world. Someone feels threatened and is killing to keep secrets from being reported.
