My second novel, Breaking News, is now available for preorder. It will be released by Amazon on October 8, 2019 and on all other platforms on October 16.
Breaking News is a prequel to my first novel, Sins of Omission, and concerns a crucial element in the backstory of my protagonist, Alan Rudberg.
Rudberg is sued by a public official over a story he has written about corruption in the awarding of construction contracts. It is difficult for a public official to win a libel suit, but as this case goes to trial, backstage machinations put Rudberg in a tight spot. And when the going gets tough, both his business and personal relationships begin to fray.
This story is a parable for journalists, who will recognize and identify with Rudberg as he navigates changes in his profession brought on by declining readership and changing ownership patterns. I hope you enjoy it.
