THE MIDNIGHT SHOW MURDERS
by Al Roker, Dick Lochte

Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth

RT Rating

Although any astute mystery reader will figure out whodunit relatively quickly, America’s favorite weatherman and his friend have penned a funny story with just enough obvious pop culture references to make the reader feel in the know. The characters are “typey” without being over the top, and the protagonist is completely likable.

Against his better judgment, Chef Billy Blessing has returned to Los Angeles to do voice-overs for his network’s new nighttime talk show. When the host of the show is murdered, Billy is convinced the murder has something to do with the unsolved killing of a friend of Billy’s 22 years ago. To further complicate matters, the one person who wants Billy to help solve the murder is Billy’s favorite suspect from the first one — a man who threatened to kill Billy if he didn’t leave LA.
