Overview

From New York Times bestselling author Kate White, a riveting novel of psychological suspense in which a media star must battle a malevolent enemy who may be disturbingly close to her.

After losing her on-air job two years ago, television host Robin Trainer has fought her way back and now she’s hotter than ever. With her new show climbing in the ratings and her first book a bestseller, she’s being dubbed a media double threat.

But suddenly, things begin to go wrong. Small incidents at first: a nasty note left in her purse; her photo shredded. But the obnoxious quickly becomes threatening when the foundation the makeup artist uses burns Robin’s face. It wasn’t an accident—someone had deliberately doctored with the product.

An adversary with a dark agenda wants to hurt Robin, and the clues point to someone she works with every day. While she frantically tries to put the pieces together and unmask this hidden foe, it becomes terrifyingly clear that the person responsible isn’t going to stop until Robin loses everything that matters to her . . . including her life.

Nylon Magazine

Cleverly woven with comic dialogue and sexy dates, the narrative mixes the spookiness of Twin Peaks with the scandal of Gossip Girl, plus a dash of Ian McEwan-esque drama. . . . A page-turner.

South Florida Sun Sentinel

A superior mix of romantic suspense and pure mystery while avoiding clichés. . . . An academic mystery, a women’s novel and an insular village mystery with the private school standing in for a small town.

Things are finally looking up for cable TV host Robin Trainer. After losing her last job, her marriage, and dealing with the ongoing effects of an evil stepmother and duped father, she just released a surefire hit book and sits alongside good-looking and flirty cohost Carter on The Pulse, a popular new daily show. But Robin's newfound happiness and success are sullied when someone starts trying to mess with her psyche and personal safety (e.g., leaving her a nasty note and a disfigured doll). The threats escalate and appear to be the handiwork of a colleague, although network security is skeptical. Faced with another career setback, Robin struggles to figure out who is doing these terrible things and whom she can and cannot trust. VERDICT The latest from best-selling author White (The Sixes) is fast-paced and keeps the reader guessing owing to the generous number of potential suspects. While the dialog is often flat or plain unnecessary, the premise is certainly compelling, and the glimpse inside a cable network is entertaining. Perfect reading for a boring airplane ride! For fans of showbiz fiction and psychological suspense/thrillers. [See Prepub Alert, 1/10/14.]—Samantha Gust, Niagara Univ. Lib., NY

When a book-launch party turns ugly, B-list celebrity Robin Trainer has to find out who's targeting her in this latest from former Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief White.Robin is all aglow: A friend has thrown a fabulous launch party for her new book, and she's the center of attention. Along with a sure-fire best-seller, Robin can lay claim to a reinvigorated career as host of a tabloid-TV show and a fresh start after the dissolution of her marriage. Only thing is, someone keeps spoiling her day by putting nasty notes in her handbag, tearing the covers of her books, leaving battered Barbie dolls on her desk, putting annoying chemicals in her foundation and leaving a drugged brownie for her to ingest. Robin is just annoyed at first, but as the assailant's moves escalate, she finds herself weeding through her friends, suitors and work associates to try to figure out who's doing this to her before something worse—even deadly—happens. White tries hard to make readers care about the gorgeous, alluring and brilliantly successful Robin, but it's rough going. The cast is full of stock characters: publicists; an agent; a careless intern; a drop-dead handsome co-star who wants to be more than that to Robin; and an evil stepmother who made Robin's childhood miserable. None of them ever develops into more than a cardboard cutout; and White—who seems obsessed with clichés—peppers her prose with insider talk that, rather than providing atmosphere and a touch of reality, only serves to make the story less relatable and a little too glib.Readers who like their reading "lite" may enjoy this glimpse into the world of cable TV, but thriller fans won't find anything compelling in these cookie-cutter characters and dull, by-the-numbers plot.
