At 46, TV reporter Charlie McNally is getting old for the screen. When a man working for a large pharmaceutical company is killed in an auto accident and she's sent to interview his wife, Charlie sees it as one more sign that her career is going downhill. Then she learns the man had e-mailed her about some papers -- and that the company has a secret whistle-blower. As Charlie tries to get to the bottom of this juicy story, she meets professor Joshua Gelston, the first man who's interested her in ages, but is he one of the good guys? Told in the first person, this book has humor, snappy language, danger and a wonderful mystery that will keep your guessing. Prime Time (4.5), by Hank Phillippi Ryan, has the perfect combination of mystery and romance.
