"judgment day" by wanda dyson

Sensational journalism is the name of Suzanne Kidwell's game--and she doesn't care if she speaks the truth, only that she gets good ratings for her show, Judgment Day with Suzanne Kidwell. Over the years, she has made many enemies, including a powerful US Senator. When she finds evidence linking the senator to a black market organ operation, she thinks she's hit pay dirt. But then a woman is murdered in her apartment, and she is charged with the crime. Her only hope is her former fiance Marcus, a private investigator, and his partner Alex. As they investigate, they find the corruption spreads much wider than they imagined, and they are all soon fighting for their lives.

Judgment Day is a quick, enjoyable read. I loved the supporting characters, especially Razz, the assistant/computer guru in Marcus and Alex's office. I'd love to learn more about him, so I really hope Dyson writes another book with these characters. I also appreciated that, while there was a little romance, the focus of the book was suspense. The romance that did exist was understated and didn't seem at all forced. I've been reading so much romance lately that it was nice to read some straight-up suspense.

A tip if you read it (and you should): Do not read the back cover copy. It's incredibly inaccurate. I was fairly confused through the first several chapters because things weren't happening as described on the cover (or on the publisher's information page). So, go out and buy this book ... and then read it without reading the cover!

Sound interesting? You can read the first two chapters here.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
