Overview

Death By Deadline is a mystery thriller that takes you deep into the heart of local TV News, with heroes, villains, and a look at how the battle to be first with a story can climax in unbelievable catastrophe. Can local news kill people? That's the essential question as the author takes you through a mosaic of politics. the underworld, government, and the life of a big city as seen through the prism of courageous journalists and their corrupt and devious counterparts. Death by Deadline is a story of murder, mayhem, and hope. accompanied by unforgettable characters, and some of the most unusual newsroom humor that you will ever read. This is not for the fainthearted, but is IS for people who want to walk the fine line between solid reporting and the tragedy of journalistic deceit. The people are not real. Can it happen? Maybe, on some dark day in the future, unless it is too late.

"Too late" is a real possibility. But in the meantime, the thread of corruption, sexual tension, heroes and villains fighting an internal struggle, produces a newsroom full of tightrope walkers in a novel with so many surprises, that the reader must be prepared to face the unthinkable.

    Not Impressed

    Larry should stick to nonfiction, his forte. This novel is very disjointed and has an inconsistent narrator, who appears intermittently. The numerous chapter subheads really slow down the reading pace, with poor transition. There is a lack of character development and too much corny dialogue (Yikes; Yesiree). Also rife with factual errors, e.g., Wm. Penn's landing in 1862; Blue Route, "east-west" expressway. Veronica Victoria changes to Victor; etc. Plus 10 annoying blank pages which make the work actually 238 pages, not 248! Obviously, this was a rush job--and it shows it.

    Disappointing!

    I expected better. The storyline & the characters were disjointed. Want to read a GOOD mystery book based in Philadelphia - read Lisa Scotoline's
    books.
