Roaming the night streets of Los Angeles in search of news items for their cameras, Anna Hatory and her crew of video freelancers are shattered by the death of a suicidal jumper and the murder of one of their team members, a crime that bares dangerous secrets from the past. BOMC Main.

Blackwell North Amer
Anna Batory runs the night crew. Small, dark-haired, shy but tough, a Wisconsin farm girl on the streets of Los Angeles, she roams the city with her small band of video free-lancers in their truck from ten to dawn, looking for news: accidents, robberies, murders, demonstrations - anything they can shoot and sell to the local stations or the networks. It's an exhilarating life ... until the day two deaths shake their world.
The first is the jumper. Five stories up, perched on the ledge of a hotel window, dark pants, white shirt, just standing there - and then he's gone, falling through the air toward their cameras. The second is Jason, one of Anna's cameramen. Strangely affected by the jumper, he quits the scene early that night, not to be seen again until his body turns up on the beach several hours later, shot in the head. The police wonder if it's drug-related, but Anna isn't so sure, and the more she looks into it on her own, the more the ghosts of the past - hers, Jason's, and finally the jumper's - begin to emerge, until her whole world turns as dark and dangerous as the night itself.

Fast paced plot, keeps you guessing till the end. Recommended.

I like Sanford much better in the wilds of Muskie land. This tale seems to me a test run in the wild west and it is not his turf.

Not Sandford's best but still worth the read.

It was okay. The set-up for the plot was original, even if the whole obsessed serial killer theme has been done by just about every writer
