Summary

Cora Baxter is back - and this time she's facing the most important deadline of her career.

When TV reporter Cora Baxter attends the scene of a murder in a London park, she's horrified to discover the victim is someone she knows and devastated when one of her best friends is charged with the crime. Suddenly the fun-filled life of Cora and her eccentric camera crew takes a darker turn. Cora is convinced that her friend is innocent, but with seemingly solid evidence, the police investigation team - reluctantly led by Cora's boyfriend, DCI Adam Bradberry - believe the case is closed. With a trail of clues that leads all the way to New York, can Cora find out the truth before the trial begins, or is it already too late?

The Deadline is the second in the hugely popular Cora Baxter Mysteries series by acclaimed broadcaster Jackie Kabler.

Jackie Kabler worked as a newspaper reporter and then in television news for 20 years, including nearly a decade on GMTV. She later appeared on BBC and ITV news, presented a property show for Sky, hosted sports shows on Setanta Sports News and worked as a media trainer for the armed forces. She is now a presenter on shopping channel QVC. Jackie lives in Gloucestershire with her husband, who is a GP.

Utter Tosh

I listen to a lot of books but rarely write reviews. I felt I had to say something about this tripe fest to prevent other poor listeners brains from exploding.

If you like unbelievable drivel with every cliche going this is for you. The incredibly thin plot is disastrous, pushing the bounds of credibility so far that the main character and her friends all comment about just how far fetched it all is. I kept hoping something would happen that would turn it around and make it clever rather than utterly obvious and clownish. It didn’t.

The narrator is very good, she actually one of my favourites and the reason I downloaded the book. Her performances is excellent as usual, but the material is oh so poor.

Another good read!

A good rounded story, lots of twists and sometimes unbelievable but well put together and an easy read. Look forward to the next.

Fab story, wonderful characters

I really enjoyed this book, the characters are extremely engaging and it's a shame when the book ends and you have to say goodbye to them. The story was intriguing with lots of twists and turns. And the narrator is wonderful. Great book.
