Summary "A delightfully feisty, smart heroine" is up against a country music killer in this comic thriller from the Edgar Award-winning author of Trust Me on This ( Publishers Weekly ). Having endured the seedy world of tabloid journalism at the Weekly Galaxy , ambitious reporter Sara Joslyn has finally moved on to Trend , a hip New York magazine. But news is news, and Sara is immediately sent to Branson, Missouri, the capital of wholesome entertainment, to cover a sensational celebrity trial. Embattled country music legend Ray Jones is accused of a brutal kidnapping and killing. Making -- and mucking -- matters worse, Sara's sleazy former colleagues from the Weekly Galaxy have also infested the town. Sara is surprised by how much she enjoys a bit of pure, proud Americana -- as well as the ruggedly smooth Ray Jones. But when he's suspected of a second homicide, Sara realizes there's more to the story. And that someone decidedly unwholesome is getting away with murder in the heartland. "The action is jet-fast, and the satiric commentary on country western stars and fans is wonderfully wicked." -- Library Journal "Lots of ingenious twists and turns." -- Booklist Praise for Donald E. Westlake "Westlake has no peer in the realm of comic mystery novelists." -- San Francisco Chronicle "No writer can excel Donald E. Westlake." -- Los Angeles Times.
