Bury the Lede

We rated this book:


Madison Jackson is a young intern hoping to land a great gig at a large Boston newspaper when a vicious murder and kidnapping takes place that implicates high society Boston, including powerful politicians who are considering running for the White House. Dahlia Kennedy, arrested for the murder of her husband and disappearance of her child, will only talk to Madison about her story. The more Madison learns, the more she gets caught up in scandal and intrigue and whether or not it is right to betray your morals for a story.

Honestly, this would have been much better if it was longer. It fell too short. Just as you are getting into it, the story is over. It is hard to build sympathy for characters when it is short as well, especially with so many moving parts. And with the story being as short as it is, the ending feels rushed like the author was running out of pages and realized they needed to end the story. It has the familiar feel of cover-ups in Boston with the Catholic Church being the biggest. It is just sad that it is not longer to flesh it out.
