Deadline by James A. Anderson
Non-Stop Action and a Thrill a Minute.
James Anderson does an excellent job intertwining four different plot lines of murder, romance, thrills and suspense. The result is more action than you can possibly image. Fortunately for us the novel, Deadline, does this for us with the precision that only a journalist can bring to a topic he is thoroughly familiar with.
The action comes to us non stop from all directions. A serial killer kidnaps a female newspaper reporter. A newspaper editor nearly loses his estranged daughter to a suicide attempt. A leading foreign correspondent gets the interview of a lifetime. The publisher of the newspaper struggles to keep his paper alive and stay loyal to the love of his life.
James spins his stories with the cool clean hand of a newsman. We are given the facts and just the facts of this fictional novel with such clarity and vision that we can’t help but feel it’s real. This is a great edge of your chair read and deserves five stars.
