a fractured evening news interview by mark barkan, the pregnant babydoll of famed news correspondent joannie doyle, presents a sensational example of the tumultuous journalism of the late 1960s. in the midst of an increasingly violent vietnam war, doyle and barkan debate whether to follow new government regulations that require reporters to have higher levels of security clearance. meanwhile, the government intends to use the newsroom as a cover for covert action to invade cuba in its hopes of landing a large group of political dissidents, and doyle makes the decision to expose the plan. the downside, however, is that she will have to begin working with ollie kirk, a disheveled old man whose three sons have all died on the battlefield and whose own innocence was stolen away by a corrupt government. barkan continues to operate as a journalist, though the political climate in which he works makes it increasingly difficult for him to say anything controversial, causing him to choose truth over expediency. in this account of first-hand reporting, small-town military affairs reporter kent winfield also describes his experiences as a young man working for the vietnam war newspaper, the brooklyn independent. this riveting, politically charged drama is also a sad, beautifully written story of loss. verdict recommended; storytelling at its best, from everyday settings to historical events. darcy miller
the story opens with the sudden death of a university professor who has been murdered. while the police begin the investigation, an old friend of the dead man, a lawyer, is called in for an important case of his own. with the help of a clever young law student, he must use his criminal law expertise to find the truth behind the professor’s death. but the two have a potential conflict of interest; they know each other too well. a very clever first-person narrative allows the story to unfold and the narrator to be a little more than a passive listener, yet the pace is slow, the story plotless, and the plot driven by the conflict of interests. the ending is a bit of a snooze, which is kind of the point. verdict not recommended. lacey webster
when a young boy is abducted from his home and murdered, the police investigation reveals that his mother, the boy’s mother, was a paid employee of a multi-billion-dollar corporation. in this dark thriller, the narrator’s voice gives the story the immediate edge of a police procedural, but it also brings out the sociopolitical underpinnings of the story. that not all of the crimes are solved is a grim reminder of the fact that there are murderers among us, and that some of them may be our neighbors. verdict this book has all the hallmarks of a classic thriller, but the way it explores the larger issues of our society are even more disturbing and thought-provoking. an outstanding debut.b. allison gray
