Suzanne Kidwell hosts a weekly cable show called Judgment Day where she is known for her sensational journalism. Her goal is to exploit and expose people of prominence for the lies they tell. She fancies herself a champion of ethics when in fact, she is quite the opposite. Suzanne’s lazy investigation tactics and creative embellishments put her job in jeopardy and leave innocent people ruined.
Things begin to go terribly wrong when Suzanne’s boyfriend dies in a car accident that was meant for her. Then the police find someone murdered on her living room floor and she has the blood on her hands. Jail is the last place Suzanne ever expects to find herself and when she comes face to face with a man she betrayed in college, things really start to heat up. Suzanne knows about something big, something worth killing for if she can just stay alive long enough to prove it.
This book was fast paced and I couldn’t help but be sucked in to the plot. The character of Suzanne as a cold hearted journalist looking for fame and success definitely came across well. In fact, I really didn’t like her at the beginning and I still didn’t like her at the end. I felt like her change of heart at the end was shallow and more about her brush with death than actual regret for her horrible treatment of others. The plot rotates around the horrible practice of organ harvesting and it is a sad and sick thing. I’m sure it does happen today, but I shudder to think of it. Overall, if I view this book as a distraction and don’t think too much about it, I liked it. It was a quick, engaging read.
