Devil in the Deadline by LynDee Walker is the fourth book in the “Headlines in High Heels” mystery series. Publisher: Henery Press, January 2015
When the Richmond police offer an exclusive in exchange for help with a case, nothing—not even a costume party—stops crime reporter Nichelle Clarke from making Manolo tracks to the crime scene. The hunt leads her to a televangelist’s compound in the Virginia countryside where the Reverend may be more interested in fat stacks of cash than he is saving wayward souls.
With two sexy guys tangled up in Nichelle’s story—and in her heart—work and love are on a crash course for disaster. Pressure pours in from every corner, including a faceless new competitor that means the deadline is always five minutes ago. As secrets threaten and the truth becomes her lifeline, Nichelle must unmask the killer and nail down the story before she’s snared in the carefully-constructed web.
LynDee does it again by delivering a fast-paced and action-filled drama that has Nichelle going gung-ho in her quest to find a murderer and get down to the dirty business of crime where you least expect it. A thrilling read that knocked me off my feet, this is one of her best work yet and I can’t wait to see where we are headed next with Nichelle and her investigative reporting.
