Eliza Blake, veteran of the morning show and now the anchor of the KEY Evening Headlines is suddenly thrust into the spotlight when Constance Young, the undisputed star of morning television, is found at the bottom of her swimming pool. Eliza is committed to finding out who wanted Constance out of the way, and why.
But the mystery runs deeper than anyone expects. Why was Constance wearing a precious artifact and where is the missing treasure now? Eliza soon learns that Constance has more enemies than she could ever have imagined. The closer Eliza gets to unmasking the murderer, the closer she gets to becoming the next victim.
Eliza marshals three KEY News co-workers to help. Annabelle Murphy is able to switch from producing to investigative work at a moment's notice. B.J. D'Elia contributes brains, brawn, and a much-needed male perspective. And on-air psychiatrist and recent KEY News hire Dr. Margo Gonzalez has a frightening propensity to figure out what suspects may really be thinking. Together they come to form the "Sunrise Suspense Society," relying on each other, their ingenuity and courage tested to the limit, in this nail-biting media thriller in which everyone is a suspect, and every word is a clue.
