Seasoned investigative reporter Charlotte McNally knows that in the cutthroat world of television journalism, every story could be your last. There s always someone younger and prettier to take your place, always a story more sensational to drive ratings through the roof.
When Brad Foreman s widow demands to know why Charlie never answered his email, Charlie is confused. She never received his message. What did Brad, an accountant at a pharmaceutical company, want to tell her? As she searches through her computer, she finds an innocent-looking email in her junk mail folder that may turn out to be the biggest story of her career.
Is the encoded email--and the ones that follow--linked to Brad s accidental death? Charlie s investigation leads her to Brad s friend, professor Josh Gelston, who is charming and exceedingly helpful--perhaps suspiciously so.
Charlie must decide if she can trust Josh before a multimillion-dollar fraud ring with murder in its arsenal makes her the next lead story."
