The network news crew flying out from Los Angeles to cover a
forest fire in Idaho believe themselves entitled to danger pay. The blaze has completely
destroyed a rural religious community and all its inhabitants and is still
raging—but that’s not the reason they feel at risk.
The danger comes from their on-screen reporter—beautiful, sexy, and
malignantly ambitious Vicki Garcia. When Vicki turns her wiles on a man who has
something she wants—whether an extra minute on camera or a helicopter ride to
the off-limits scene of the tragedy—she gets it. Sometimes it provides great
coverage; but it can also get one or more of her victims incarcerated,
incapacitated, or incinerated. Particularly at peril is the crew’s smitten
field producer, Kevin Manwaring, whom Vicki keeps on edge with unspoken—and unfulfilled—promises
of delights to come.
The small Idaho town, formerly occupied by the gentle people
who perished in the conflagration, is coveted by a mining company. The story
seems simple enough—until the television technicians discover a severely
wounded dog with a bullet in its chest. As the crew investigates the true
origin of the fire, they become the prey of a clever killer. Download and start listening now!
