Kill The Story John Luciew read online review & book description:

A serial killer known as "The Reader" is murdering journalists in the manner of their most famous stories. Dubbed the "Media Murders" by the press, the killings baffle authorities, turn once-aggressive reporters into prey and shock the country in what soon becomes a national story. The cunning killer's first strike is cleverly disguised as a political assassination, mirroring John Hinckley's attempt on Ronald Reagan. As it turns out, the fallen reporter had covered Reagan's shooting. It's the first of several bizarre killings with eerie similarities to sensational stories the murdered journalists once covered. The story is so big, The New York Times assigns its new national reporter, Cassandra "Cassie" Jordan, to cover its every development. The assignment returns Cassie to her familiar stomping grounds of Harrisburg, Pa., reuniting her with Frank "Telly" Tellis, chief political reporter for The Harrisburg Herald. Only Telly can put together the murderous truth as the secret motive for the killings is buried deep in his journalistic past. But can he solve the puzzle before falling under The Reader's deadly crosshairs?

John Luciew, the author of FATAL DEAD LINES, SECRETS OF THE DEAD and ZERO TOLERANCE, once again plumbs the depths of power, politics and the press. The result is pulse-pounding suspense.


If Hollywood was ever going to make a movie of one of my books, Kill The Story would be the one. It has everything -- a high concept, a deepening mystery rooted in actual events and more off-beat but convincingly real characters than you can count. This is journalism as I saw it -- both from the outside looking in and the inside out. It says nearly everything I have to say about the state of media today -- all without slowing the non-stop action one little bit. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it.

Journalist John Luciew is the author of numerous ripped-from-the-headlines fictional thrillers that mix politics, corporate power and pulse-pounding suspense, including: KILL THE STORY, ZERO TOLERANCE, SECRETS OF THE DEAD, FATAL DEAD LINES, CORPORATE CUNNING, and coming soon, LAST CASE. His non-fiction titles include the true-crime account, SUSPECT/VICTIM, and the real-life medical thriller, "CATASTROPHIC."
