The husband-and-wife team of Kristy Montee and Daniel Norman ( Hot Type ) offers an absorbing tale of the Bryant family members and the daily newspaper they own, the San Francisco Times , which binds them together while breeding bitter enmity among them. When Adam Bryant joined the Times in 1925, all he had was some reporting experience and a lot of ambition. That, however, and a judicious though loveless marriage to the owner's daughter Lilith Bickford brought him control of the paper. But when "old man" Bickford dies and Adam learns that the love of his youth, heiress Elizabeth Ingram, is a widow, he wrests a divorce from Lilith by threatening her with an ugly scandal. Elizabeth's millions can help Adam expand the paper into a chain but not guarantee its survival after his death. When he bequeaths the Times to his three children jointly, contention between them is inevitable: Lilith's son, Ian, is content to exploit it for quick money; Elizabeth's daughter, Kellen, will fight him to preserve Adam's empire from conversion into tabloids; and young Tyler, the illegitimate son, becomes a pawn in the struggle for power.
