Deadline is about Tess Abbott and Spencer Reed. Both of them are in the media field. Tess is a television reporter and Spencer is a newspaper reporter. Tess is trying to figure out why her father killed her mother and if he really did. Spencer is about to break a huge political scandal. When they realize that both her mothers murder and Spencer's story have something in common they decided to work together. Deadline isn't a bad story but at times the plot was slow moving. If you can get past that you'll end up liking how the author ties it all up. Happy reading!
