April 11, 2020 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm EDT
Join us for a meet and greet with author Jeffery Diamond to celebrate the release of his newest book, Live to the Network.
About the book:
Spinning toward a devastating confrontation with Peter Sampson, the mercurial anchorman of The Weekly Reporter, Ethan Benson stumbles upon a story about the tabloid murders of three runaway girls that have dominated the headlines in New York City. At first, the assignment appears to be just another lurid crime story that Ethan has no interest in pursuing, but as he launches his investigation—digging up the police reports, securing the court records, meeting with confidential sources, and staking out some of the most crime-infested neighborhoods in the city, he discovers that the murders are just the tip of the iceberg, that the dead girls represent the last chapter in the despicable world of human sex trafficking, where women are degraded in the most inhumane of ways.
Peppered with car chases, gun battles, and a sadistic hitman, Ethan takes the reader on a wild ride of payoffs, corruption, and deceit as he discovers a devious link between an assistant district attorney and the head of the Chinese Tong in lower Manhattan, whose clandestine alliance compromises a law enforcement task force investigating the crimes. A thriller in the classic sense of the term, Live to the Network—like all the other Ethan Benson murder mysteries—takes the reader into the mysterious world of television news with all the infighting and backstabbing endemic to the real world of broadcasting. An unforgettable character, our hero is an award-winning producer, a husband, a father, and a raging alcoholic whose marriage is falling apart as his drinking spirals out of control.
And as Ethan is driven by his inner demons to discover the truth, he relentlessly uses his skills as a reporter and works alongside his production team of researchers, associate producers, cameramen, editors, and a private detective to hunt down the bad guys and uncover the truth. The novel is a heart-pounding murder mystery with anger and violence, surprise and suspense, and a cast of unforgettable characters set in a milieu rarely explored in other works of fiction.
Jeffrey L. Diamond is an award-winning producer with forty years of experience in television news, where he produced hundreds of breaking news specials, major newsmaker interviews, investigative reports, entertainment profiles, and crime stories for ABC News 20/20, Dateline NBC, FOX News, and Martha Stewart Living Television.
