Publisher's Summary

Jake Carlson, a correspondent for the TV news show American Outrage, inhabits a world of sensational trials and crazed celebrities. One of the nation's top television journalists, he's used to dragging himself through the dirt to get to the truth. When his adopted son, Sam, asks him to use his muckraking talents to find his birth mother, Jake is stunned by the ugly secrets he unearths: an international crime syndicate, a horrifying child-trafficking ring, and a corrupt politician who is the patriarch of an old New York financial dynasty. Initially galvanized by a career-making exclusive, Jake and his son become the victims of brutal violence and the targets of Jake's fellow reporters, pressuring them for their story. Concerned for the survival of his family, Jake realizes some sins of the past should never be uncovered. Filled with an insider's knowledge of tabloid news and the experience of an adopted son seeking his biological parents, American Outrage proves to be Tim Green's best and most personal thriller yet.

I usually like Green's thrillers but found this one dragged . Plot line was slow but the character development was a little better. Overall not recommended.

I was a big Tim Green fan. Loved all his past books. This was so boring I stopped after half way through it. I thought it would pick up. It never did. I really expected suspense....very disappointed.
