Public Affairs by Nick Harlow

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Even Satan takes a lunch break. Of course, the apple is always at the top of the food pyramid.

In this case, the devil runs a television newsroom.

And the world of television news is always shaken, not stirred.

Start with Nick Romaine, a struggling reporter whose wife slept with his boss to get him a major market job. Take the aforementioned demon, add a dash of political corruption, and a pinch of organized crime. Pour all the players in a glass house, and mix violently.

Serve in a newsroom where employees have a funny habit of dying, and see if Nick drinks the Kool-Aid.

Nick is an ethical journalist who finds himself imprisoned by the very success he's chased. His new high profile position makes him an unwilling part of a corrupt political machine that controls his news department and wants to rig an upcoming election. His wife can no longer be trusted. He's alone and trapped; exposing his own station would end his career while playing along would destroy his soul. But Nick has a card up his sleeve even his wife doesn't know about; a family member's connection to organized crime. He must throw the rules out the window to save his career, and, as it turns out, his life. Or he could become the story.

Because while life isn’t cheap in television news, it can be deeply discounted.

Public Affairs is a story of the seductress known as fame and an industry that can easily tailor the facts to shape what we believe...

…and influence an election.
