Publisher's Summary

Barrie Travis is a damn good reporter stuck at a low-budget television station when the First Lady calls her—and offers her the opportunity of a lifetime. Stunned by the loss of her infant son, the president’s wife hints he may have been murdered. Barrie sets out to find the truth, fighting for the exclusive story with the help of Gray Bondurant, a mysterious former presidential aide. Soon they unearth White House secrets that, if exposed, could topple the presidency. And certain powerful parties want nothing more than to see the scandalous past—and a certain young reporter—dead and buried.

Had promise but....

I have to say that I am pretty disappointed in this story. It started out great, with lots of potential. The main character is an intriguing woman, who's had a few embarrassments in the past, but with her mentor/friend, continues to try and forge ahead. She's built up as this independent woman who, although has had some setbacks, is a solid investigative reporter.

Then she meets with a man and the independent woman seems to just vanish in a flurry of unrestrained lust. That doesn't bother me, as long as it remains in the moment. But after that scene, her character becomes increasingly more cliche and irritating to deal with. I stopped listening because I honestly didn't care about her story anymore. This may sound harsh, but I was upset with what happened to the character. Perhaps its gets better after I stopped listening, and maybe I'll try it again, but for now, it simply doesn't grab my interest.

If You think the Premise of this Book Sounds Dumb

It is! Everything about this book is bad. The characters are weakly developed and the "love" story is stupid from the onset--particularly at the onset. The only reason that I finished listening to this novel is so that I could legitimately pan it. Don't waste your money.
