Dead Air (Oceanview, IBSN: 978-1-933515-50-2, Hardcover, Thriller, $25.95) introduces protagonist Sammy Greene. An outspoken, brash, native New Yorker, Sammy isn't afraid to ruffle a few feathers at Ellsford, her ultra-conservative New England college. The host of "The Hot Line," a talk radio show on campus station WELL, Sammy tackles the toughest, most controversial issues facing Ellsford's student body.
When Sammy discovers the body of Dr. Burton Conrad, one of Ellsford's most esteemed professors, her journalistic drive kicks in and she sets out to find answers to what happened to the beloved professor. But when several Ellsford students mysteriously disappear, Sammy realizes she's uncovered the seamy, terrifying underbelly of this prestigious institute of higher education.
With the entire campus in peril and demons from her past close behind, Sammy Greene must race to find answers. Along the way, she'll discover some unlikely allies--and even more unlikely enemies. If Sammy isn't careful, someone is going to make sure that she signs off--for good.
