From the back of the book:
How can a working newspaperman nail down a hot story when his city editor, Ironhead Matthews, is screaming at him to do his regular work, a couple of homicide detectives with a low-comedy act are harrying him, the court is after him with a subpoena, the woman he loves has just thrown him over, and it seems that wherever he goes he discovers corpse after corpse? And even these aren't all the problems Ed "Fitz" Fitzgerald faces when he takes over the Supreme COurt desk of fellow newsman Sandy Pearl. Pearl can't meet his deadlines...because he's dead. And Fitz seems to be the killer's next victum.
It was a great book....very exciting and keeps you wondering what is going to happen next.
