When Day Breaks by Mary Jane Clark

Originally posted May 26, 2008

I enjoyed this book, a little different format from what I am used to in that it covers the movements and thoughts of all the potential suspects within each day. This was an interesting concept to me. Short, individual chapters keep all characters equally in the forefront of your mind rather than having to go back to check out some vital clue you may have forgotten or missed earlier in the book. This also sets the background of relationships, interactions, unexpected links, to build to a final solution.

Mary Jane Clark has created a vibrant background of television news production, the characters are strong, fascinating and astute. Much of the storyline gives insight into the lives of reporting and production crew, and the desperation to get the story at almost any cost to integrity. This book is a part of the KEY News series and Eliza Blake, single mother and anchor for the KEY Evening Headlines is very likeable. I will definitely read more from this author.
