    an entertaining mystery

    Wake Up, America! Morning show is on location in Chicago. Retired CPD cop Edward "Pat" Patton, the extreme right wing true crime blogger, guests appears on the show. He accosts the co-host Billy Blessing; whom he knew when the renowned chef was a two bit con artist Billy Blanchard who was sent to prison for fraud and implies he also knows what happened to Billy's partner in that failed Detroit sting from twenty-five years ago.

    After prison, Blessing did a complete makeover but concealed his sordid past. Patton threatens to out him on his blog unless Blanchard pays for silence. However, someone murders Patton and soon other homicides associated with the show occur. Still fearing exposure, Blessing investigates hoping to expose the killer.

    The latest Blessing amateur sleuth (see The Morning Show Murders and The Midnight Show Murders) is an entertaining mystery in which the protagonist's dark past deftly comingles with his lighthearted asides. The story line is fast-paced from the moment Patton and Blessing have that first heated discussion and never slows down until the final spin. Ironically, though in danger of becoming the tabloid's latest celeb scandal and being assaulted, kidnapped, and shot at, Blessing knows his biggest tsuris is his attraction to the French actress in town filming.

    Can't Get Through It

    I ususally enjoy a good mystery, but I can't get into this one at all because it's a continuous rant against anyone who disagrees with a completely liberal platform. Crazy. I can't finish it; it's just way too annoying. Might be ok if there was more of a story to it.

    Fun!

    This is a fun book to read. A little bit smoother each time a new one comes out.
