Nobody can dish morning TV like Al Roker, whoâ€™s seen every
side of a business that looks good on cameraâ€”even when
sharks are circling inside the gleaming glass Manhattan
media headquarters. Treachery abounds in Rokerâ€™s riotously
thrilling debut novelâ€”at once an ingenious murder mystery
and a delicious behind-the-scenes look at network TV. As
fact and fiction collide and the backbiting ignites, The
Morning Show Murders will make you wonder: How much
of this stuff is real?
Network TV can
be murder. Just ask Billy Blessing, famous for his
smile, charm, and ability to survive the shark tank that is
high-stakes morning TV. But though Billy has outlived his
fair share of prima-donnas, his cooking segment on Wake
Up America! is a staple of the American diet, and his
Manhattan bistro is a mega-success, his career has just
taken a very dangerous turn: His showâ€™s perky cohost, Gin
McCauley, has launched into some brass-knuckles contract
negotiations. A visiting Mossad agent is about to tell all
on the air. And then the networkâ€™s head honcho is
murdered in his luxury apartment, and an ambitious D.A.
decides that Billy is to blame.
Forensics show that
Gerry Gallagher was poisoned and that the fatal coq au vin
came from Billyâ€™s restaurant. Gerry had an impressive list
of women in his black bookâ€”and a news assignment in
Afghanistan had plunged the TV exec into the heart of a
violent international secret. Now unsavory characters are
coming out of the woodwork, and another murder strikes the
showâ€™s inner circle. Billy knows that someoneâ€™s trying to
frame him. He also knows that a ruthless international
assassin has just arrived in New York City. And suddenly,
for the most trusted guy on TV the ultimate career move is
not about ratings. Itâ€™s about staying aliveâ€”and stopping the
next murder from becoming tomorrowâ€™s breaking news.
