Things are finally looking up for cable TV host Robin Trainer. After losing her last job, her marriage, and dealing with the ongoing effects of an evil stepmother and duped father, she just released a surefire hit book and sits alongside good-looking and flirty cohost Carter on The Pulse, a popular new daily show. But Robin's newfound happiness and success are sullied when someone starts trying to mess with her psyche and personal safety (e.g., leaving her a nasty note and a disfigured doll). The threats escalate and appear to be the handiwork of a colleague, although network security is skeptical. Faced with another career setback, Robin struggles to figure out who is doing these terrible things and whom she can and cannot trust.
VERDICT The latest from best-selling author White (The Sixes) is fast-paced and keeps the reader guessing owing to the generous number of potential suspects. While the dialog is often flat or plain unnecessary, the premise is certainly compelling, and the glimpse inside a cable network is entertaining. Perfect reading for a boring airplane ride! For fans of showbiz fiction and psychological suspense/thrillers. [See Prepub Alert, 1/10/14.]
