I stumbled upon this series as I was browsing Amazon books and discovered that my library had the audio version, so I decided to give it a try. It didn't have much suspense or intriguing characters, but it still was a good audioread by giving us an inside peak into the world of a TV reporter. As in other books I have encountered, Riley and Nick play a game with movie lines - guessing the movie and year of the quoted one-liners. The game didn't woo me, but I can see how others might get a kick out of it. Ultimately, I thought it was a good debut (there are 5 in the series now) and plan to listen to more.
