Wake Up To Murder
Hailed by Sidney Sheldon as "a master of the comic who-done it," Steve
Allen--America's favorite amateur detective--is back. This time, Steve and
his glamorous wife Jayne Meadows return to television, just in time to tune
in to a highly rated new series--of murders...Steve Allen has just been
asked to fill in as host of Good Morning, U.S.A., the country's most
popular morning talk show. His debut is barely underway when the program is
interrupted by technical difficulties: a soundman has just been strangled
with a microphone cord.
There's no shortage of suspects, from the perky co-host, whose on-camera
smile conceals a troubled past, to the show's producer, who's terrified of
getting killed in the ratings to a TV weatherman who predicts the onslaught
of a deadly storm. But a new performance is on the killer's schedule as,
one by one, the show's cast and crew get the ax...
The trail of puzzling clues leads to a surprising prime-time climax in New
York's glittering "21" Club. Now, while all America watches, Steve and Jayne
must clear up some very bad reception in order to solve a murderously clever
mystery...before someone cancels their performance--permanently.
Written with his trademark sense of style and fun, Steve Allen's WAKE
UP TO MURDER blends the author's showbiz savvy with the wicked wit and
engaging suspense that readers have come to expect from one of America's
most beloved and enduring entertainers.
