Eliza Blake, veteran of the morning show and now the anchor of the KEY Evening Headlines, is suddenly thrust into the spotlight when Constance Young, the undisputed star of morning television, is found at the bottom of her swimming pool. Eliza is committed to finding out who wanted Constance out of the way—and why.

But the mystery runs deeper than anyone expects. Why was Constance wearing a precious artifact, and where is the missing treasure now? Eliza soon learns that Constance has more enemies than she could ever have imagined. The closer Eliza gets to unmasking the murderer, the closer she gets to becoming the next victim.

Eliza marshals three KEY News coworkers to help. Annabelle Murphy is able to switch from producing to investigative work at a moment’s notice. B. J. D’Elia contributes brains, brawn, and a much-needed male perspective. And on-air psychiatrist and recent KEY News hire Dr. Margo Gonzalez has a frightening propensity to figure out what suspects may really be thinking. Together they come to form the Sunrise Suspense Society—relying on each other, their ingenuity and courage tested to the limit—in this nail-biting media thriller in which everyone is a suspect, and every word is a clue.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer Smith | 2/4/2014

    " My least favorite of her books. Great story but. I cannot forgive what happens to a dog in the book. I know - just a story, but it is the only one of her books I have not read more than once. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bonnie | 2/2/2014

    " What I liked about the book was the multiple suspects/motives for the murder, each plausible. It was an OK read. What I didn't like was the "offing" of two innocent characters that were written to be very likable; they become a nice part of the story only to be eliminated. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lois Wolter | 1/20/2014

    " I actually enjoyed reading this book, but it is a very fluffy read. Fun, but a little predictable. Still, good enough that I decided to read the rest of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miriam | 1/1/2014

    " Easy to get into with short chapters (perfect for mothers of toddlers!) that keep you entertained. Overall a very quick, easy read but probably not one I'd read over and over. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Whitney Baker | 12/30/2013

    " This is the book that got me obsessed with Mary Jane Clark's books. This book has just the right amount of romance combined with lots of mysterious happenings. Keeps you wondering all the way to the last page. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 12/21/2013

    " This was a good easy to read mystery. Somewhat predictable, but more than one suspect. I like her books, a little like Mary Higgins Clark type mysteries. I accidently started reading here when I though I had picked up a MHC book, but it was one of hers. Quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 12/21/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dianna | 12/6/2013

    " For a drugstore mystery, I found this surprisingly well-written and well-thought out. Lots of good suspects, intrigue, and believeability in the characters. Turns out the author worked in the media and has an FBI agent for a father. So this line of fiction is really her element. "
