Fresh out of journalism school, Tommy Jacks takes the only job he can get—and on his first day finds himself covering the murder of a reporter from a competing paper.
To make matters a little more personal, it so happens that the dead reporter worked for the paper that put Tommy’s father, Ray Jacks, into prison at the height of his political career.
As Tommy follows the leads, he collects an entourage of fools and geniuses: a discredited gossip columnist, a former football star turned sportswriter, an ethics-challenged lawyer, a beautiful TV reporter, and a gorgeous playmate from his past.
As Tommy tries to survive in the newsmaking world of the late 1960’s, he finds intrigue, love, tragedy . . . and maybe himself.The Muckracker Mysteries begin with #1: Murder So Wrong
