I don't know if this was horrible because it was an abridged version or if it just sucked. If you don't have an interest in television broadcast news, I would skip this one. Too many characters, too many money issues (embezzlement and misappropriation of funds) which just tend to confuse the storyline. The abridged version read like a newspaper article of the stock market - seemed disjointed and rushed.
I've enjoyed [author:Laura Van Wormer|149924] mysteries but this was too rushed and the ending too pat (again could be due to the abridgement as I don't think they did a stellular job of it.) Believe me if you're gonna read this, get the unabridged version otherwise you'll be wasting your time.
