Find the source. Break the story. Stay alive.
One year after the 9/11 attacks, Alex Vane - a brilliant, fitness-obsessed reporter for The New York Standard - wants nothing more than to break into the flashy world of TV news. But when he uncovers the scoop of a lifetime, his tightly controlled world is rocked: his editor buries his story, a source turns up dead, and Alex finds himself at the center of a violent media conspiracy.
As he receives tips from a mysterious source, Alex enlists the help of a captivating professor, Camila Gray. Aided by an Internet genius, a billionaire's sexy widow, and a washed-up sports reporter, Alex and Camila discover a $500-million secret that could derail the largest media merger in history.
It's a secret that unearths dark memories from Alex's past. It's a secret that leads back to the morning of 9/11. And it's a secret that could get them both killed.
In his debut thriller, A.C. Fuller brings you a young journalist chasing the biggest story of his career - from the courtrooms of New York City to the beaches of Hawaii, from a crowded newsroom to a lavish boardroom at the top of a media empire.

Enjoyable story and brilliantly narrated
It's one of the good ones. Unique and interesting story. Fleshed out characters with distinctive narration...more on that below
Without giving anything away - a reveal towards the end of the book.
The scene in the cafe/diner with Alex and Camilla taking to the waitress about the media and journalists. He made a great point and made me chuckle out loud.
I wouldn't say there was anything that moved me but I enjoyed the way the book shone light on how the mainstream media acts and how that shapes the general public's perception.
This is well worth a listen if you enjoy crime/mystery/thriller dramas with intelligence. The characters are well fleshed out, the story has good pacing and the dialogue is great. It shines an interesting light on corruption in the media and how the general public has their way of thinking shaped by what they hear/read/watch in the news. It was a bit like watching one of those Crime Dramatizations based on a real event. The story was wholly believable and the characters were realistic.
I have to give major credit to the narrator, Jeff Hayes, on his range and accents (especially his female vocies). I swear if you didn't know any better you would think you were listened to an audiobook with a full cast. He made the characters easily identifiable which I always love, especially in a story with a big roster. The only issue I had was that the volume didn't seem to have any normalization going on so some voices & conversations were extremely quiet and I had to keep adjusting the volume throughout the story.
Disclosure: I recieved this book free of charge from the narrator, Jeff Hayes, through the audiobooks subreddit of reddit in exchange for an honest review (which I have given).
