About the Book

An overly ambitious Sacramento, California, TV news reporter agrees to an arrangement of trading sex with that city’s police chief in exchange for scoops on major crime stories. For months on end, Kimberly Vuis first to report live from the scene of every major crime in the city, leaving everyone, including her colleagues, to speculate about the source of her news tips. Her rendezvous with Chief Nick Fanning tragically result in the murder of the chief’s wife. The chief is jailed as the murder suspect, but Kimberly believes he was set up and says so in a dramatic on-camera meltdown as she reports his booking at the county jail on live TV. The consequences of her seemingly outrageous claim results in a six-month suspension from her job, during which her own investigation exonerates the chief from the crime. During that process, however, she discovers the chief is a (turn-the-other-way-for-cash) conspirator in a human trafficking ring. Kimberly’s subsequent misadventures come in waves as her life is placed in constant danger.
