On first blush, things are turning out wonderfully for Sally Harrington: she's landed a dream job at DBS News in New York, her relationship with her old beau, Doug, is showing signs of resurrection. Even her dog, Scotty, seems happy about spending weekdays in Manhattan and weekends back in Connecticut.

But life is about to get complicated. Fast. Sally's the star witness in a sensational Hollywood murder trial and her new boss at DBS is pressuring her to use her "in" to produce a special news series on the case for the network during sweeps week. Though not particularly anxious to antagonize the same mob organization that nearly killed her once already, Sally is determined to testify at the trial and advance her career.

Complete chaos ensues when the news assignment throws Sally back into contact with out-of-control actress Lilliana Martin and Sally's oversexed ex, Spencer Hawes. To make matters worse, her boss, anchorwoman Alexandra Waring, has suddenly disappeared. But when Sally finds a dead body in the trunk of her rental car, a lovesick college intern on her doorstep and a group of crazed assassins hot on her heels, chaos takes on a whole new meaning.

Everyone around Sally is asking her to pretend she didn't see the things she saw or know the things she knows. But Sally is only going to do what Sally thinks is right. Too bad ? that's why trouble's never far behind.

Mystery. Mayhem, Men. And women. Welcome to the world of Sally Harrington.

The sled has arrived in Germany ;-)
No snow here yet, but this is something to be read on a cold and stormy winter evening.

Sorry, I couldn't quite get into the story - the highly-appraised heroine isn't the type of person I'd like to accompany through a whole book.

I received this morning from Herrundmeyer as part of another book relay... thanks so much! I currently have possession of a mystery/thriller book box. I will read this and then put it into the box so that it continues to travel. I will make another journal entry before I do, however!

I slightly disagree with Herrundmeyer... I did not find Sally the problem so much as the mystery seemed to be a little all over the place. I did not feel too much empathy for any of the characters. I read it for a couple of hours this afternoon then skim-read to the end. There are a few novels in the Sally Harrington series so clearly she is a character who appeals to some people - my reading tastes are very fickle at the moment.

I will definitely put this into the book-box so Sally and her pals can continue to travel. Thanks for participating in the relay Herrundmeyer!

Too many books and too little time... the book is being received and is going back to accompany the others in the tour of the UK mystery/thriller book box. Who will give it a go, after the discrepant reviews?

I am having difficulty deciding which to take from and which to leave in the UK mystery/thriller bookbox - I could happily take 7, but that seems far too many, so I am leaving this one in. I did decide before i read the journal entries - I think the outline on the back suggested the book might be a bit too crowded with subplots! I would like to try one of these one day though.

I think I picked this up from the Unconvention 2005 - apologies for lack of certainty and late journalling.

I see from the entries that I passed on this one from the mystery box - what goes around comes around?!

Thanks.

Not too sure about this one - certainly a fun read, and I'd certainly read more by this author, but I did get slightly lost with the various parts of the Mob family - it would have been less confusing if I'd read the earlier one first, I think! I loved Scotty the dog and his antics!

Thanks to all.
