The Deadline (Book 2) by Jackie Kabler

The Deadline
by  Jackie Kabler

Cora Baxter is back - and this time, she's facing the most important deadline of her career… 

When TV reporter Cora Baxter attends the scene of a murder in a London park, she's horrified to discover the victim is someone she knows – and devastated when one of her best friends is charged with the crime. Suddenly the fun-filled life of Cora and her eccentric camera crew takes a darker turn. Cora is convinced that her friend is innocent, but with seemingly solid evidence, the police investigation team – reluctantly led by Cora's boyfriend DCI Adam Bradberry – believe the case is closed. With a trail of clues that leads all the way to New York, can Cora find out the truth before the trial begins – or is it already too late? 

The Deadline is the second in the hugely popular Cora Baxter Mysteries series by acclaimed broadcaster Jackie Kabler

Being a British mystery, there may be a few places where less globally experienced readers may stumble over certain terms and phrases, but those same words add to the charm and character of this wonderful mystery series. Even during times of deep, personal tragedy, a vein of humor flows through the writing. That lighter touch is required because otherwise this story would be too dark and heartbreaking. As well as a well thought out and disguised murder mystery, this is a story about endurance, belief and the power of friendship.

Besides the strong storyline of the accused and her best friend, there is a sub line about the main detective who has no choice but to arrest the close friend of the woman he loves. It is a difficult moral dilemma over which he feels powerless.

And then there are the daily happenings at the studio, both on and off air. These are people I want to read more about.

Jackie Kabler worked as a newspaper reporter and then in television news for twenty years, including nearly a decade on GMTV. She later appeared on BBC and ITV News, presented a property show for Sky, hosted sports programmes on Setanta Sports News and worked as a media trainer for the Armed Forces. She is now a presenter on shopping channel QVC and has a three-book deal with Accent Press for her Cora Baxter Mysteries, a series of murder mysteries set in a television newsroom.
