The Deadline is an outstanding multicultural thriller from bestselling author, Kiki Swinson.
Khloé Mercer is a junior TV news reporter focused on a goal. She wants an on-air anchor position and will go to great lengths to get it. She battles a backstabbing co-worker and a biased boss in her pursuit of the breakout story that’s going to save her job and elevate her career status. Khloé gets information regarding serious criminal activity in her hometown of Norfolk, VA. This is Khloé’s big story, but is it worth exposing herself and her family to real danger from desperate people.
Kiki Swinson does it again. Another bold female character who finds herself in a sticky situation entirely of her own making. Great plot, great characters, great twists, great writing, just GREAT! I didn’t find any cons, so I must give The Deadline 5 out of 5 stars. I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a great thriller.
My thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
