Publisher's Summary

When a young drifter is found murdered in the desert outside of Palm Springs, the police start their investigation - but it's crime reporter Sam Perry who gets to the bottom of the story. Working her way backward to piece together the victim's mysterious life, Sam gets drawn into the seedier side of the glamorous resort town, a world of strip clubs, blackmail, and betrayal. All suspicions point toward former A-list actress and now mayoral candidate Ellen Konrad, a woman that Sam can't quite figure out but is deeply intrigued by. As their mutual attraction grows, the clues begin to add up, and the list of people with secrets and a motive to kill multiplies. When she finally untangles the shocking story behind the drifter's death, the revelations put Sam and those closest to her in grave danger.
K. A. Tracy has penned a superb series debut, introducing a hard-nosed crime reporter that is perfect for fans of Michael Connelly and Liza Marklund.

Fluff

Mystery lite. A girlie romance, shallow predictable characters detract from a good story line.

One of my FAVORITE audio books!

Would you consider the audio edition of Deadline to be better than the print version?

I never read the print version so I can't really say but I loved the audio book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sam Perry, I found her to be the right amount of capable, talented and intelligent. She was a fantastic protagonist!

Have you listened to any of Julia Farhat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't but I may give them a shot.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Sam Perry will beat the Deadline to catch a killer.

Any additional comments?

This was a great mystery mixed with a great lesbian love story. However, the mystery aspect was stronger than the love story which I didn't mind, because you can find many a good lesbian love story but not very many that incompasses both (mystery and love story) as well as this author does.

Really very, very good. But my brain is bleeding.

Holy wow, that's about as complicated as solving a Rubik's cube on acid. Still, quite brilliant.

Well written intriguing thriller\romance

A great book, rich in detail, intriguing and a thoroughly enjoyable in its entirety. Full of interesting characters and well timed humour is appreciated.
Not a wasted word, which is rare, I admit to skimming books that don't deliver.
Not usually interested in murder mysteries as a genre, but this was offered under romance so I took a chance, so glad I did. Highly recommendable.
If a follow up book is written I hope the central characters remain, it's been great getting to know them.
