9781590587140: Deadline Man

He's a man we know only as "the columnist." He writes for a newspaper in Seattle, isn't afraid to stir up trouble, and keeps his life - including his multiple lovers and his past - in safe compartments. But it's all about to be violently upended when he goes out on what seems like the most mundane of assignments, looking into a staid company that "never makes news."


The moment one of his sources takes a dive off a downtown skyscraper, the columnist is plunged into a harrowing maze of murder, intrigue, and secrets that powerful forces intend to keep hidden at all costs. All he has to go on is a corporate world where nothing is as it seems, increasingly menacing encounters with mysterious federal agents, and the unsettling meme "eleven/eleven."


Meanwhile, the paper itself is dying. So the columnist joins with an aggressive young reporter to see if one explosive story can save a newspaper. Soon they're running to make the deadline of their lives....

About the Author:

Jon Talton is the author of 11 novels, including the David Mapstone Mysteries and the thriller Deadline Man. He is also a veteran journalist, including the former business editor of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Jon lives in Seattle where he is the economics columnist for the Seattle Times and runs the blog Rogue Columnist.

From AudioFile:

A business columnist for a big-city paper has a routine interview, gathering information on a company before deadline approaches. When the subject turns up dead, his reporting instincts kick in. Malcolm Hillgartner's narration is fine for the voices involved--those of assorted villains, newsroom colleagues, and an impressive array of girlfriends. And when the unnamed columnist tries to understand why he's being pursued, the narration really adds to the tension as Hillgartner's tone and pitch rise with the heightened emotions. The columnist relentlessly digs for the truth, all the while giving the reader an accurate description of a present-day newsroom. Both Hillgartner and the no-name protagonist get listeners' hearts racing. M.B. AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
