I enjoyed this story about news journalist Jane Ryland, who used to work for television, but now works for a local Boston paper. She's assigned a story about a possible serial killer and then gets involved with a scandal involving the governor. So many things going on at once, it's hard for her to stay on top of things, and then there's hunky detective Jake Brogan. They are attracted to each other but can't reveal info to each other and have to keep their professional lives and private (what little there is) lives separate. This was a great plot with many twists and turns to keep the reader turning pages. ( )

Jane Ryland was a rising star in television news - until she refused to reveal a source and lost everything. Now a disgraced newspaper reporter. Jane isn't content to work on her assigned puff pieces and finds herself tracking down a candidate's secret mistress just days before a pivotal Senate election. Detective Jake Brogan is investigating a possible serial killer. Twice, bodies of unidentified women have been found by a bridge, and Jake is plagued by a media swarm beginning to buzz about a "bridge killer" hunting the young women o Boston. As the body count rises and election day looms, it becomes clear to Jane and Jake that their investigations are connected - and that they may be facing a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to silence a scandal.

In my opinion, this is what happens when someone who is otherwise famous, decides to start writing. The books become popular, whether they deserve to be, or not. In all fairness, I DID finish the book... which is why I gave it 2 stars. But the majority of the non-major characters were either crazy, or not very bright.. and this was done intentionally. The major characters were a bit brighter.. but only sometimes. Characters would repeat themselves.. as frequently as on the same page.
All in all, a disappointing read. ( )

Reporter Jane Ryland lost her job and was slapped with a million-dollar lawsuit when she refused to give up a source implicating tycoon Arthur Vick in having a relationship with a prostitute. As a result, Ryland is forced to switch from TV to newspaper reporting. Her new assignment is to interview the wife of a senatorial candidate, while her desk mate is chasing Boston's biggest story -- a serial killer dubbed the Bridge Killer. Ryan, herself an investigative reporter for a NBC affiliate, weaves Ryland's personal life and relationship with Detective Jake Brogan into the story of betrayal, corruption, and murder. This novel is the first in the Jane Ryland series. ( )

This was a competent thriller. Set in Boston, it follows Jane Ryland, disgraced TV reporter as she tries to reestablish her career and reputation as a newspaper reporter. Cases of political skullduggery, a possible serial killer, and a sleazy businessman all involve her in various ways, and converge in spectacular fashion. But it somehow managed to throw just about every thriller cliche into one book. Which made it way too easy to figure out what was going on, despite the plot being unnecessarily intricate. I didn't root for anyone, really, since the good guys were bland, and the villains either nuts or despicable or both. I won't be going further with the series. ( )
