Murder Off Mike introduces Shauna J. Bogart, a small and sassy radio talk show host/amateur sleuth. Shauna J. is used to dealing with the controversial, the contentious, the cranky, and the just plain crazed as the host of the afternoon gab fest on the top-rated station in California’s state capital. But nothing prepares her for the day a fellow shock jock turns up with a bullet in his head. The cops say it’s suicide, but Shauna J. isn’t buying it. She launches her own investigation, putting herself at peril.
Her investigation, aided and abetted by her loyal callers, leads her to a shattering secret that could derail the campaign of the leading candidate for governor. Meanwhile, behind-the-scenes shenanigans threaten the very existence of the radio station Shauna J. calls home.
The action climaxes in a down-to-the-second pursuit through the streets of historic Old Sacramento during the city’s world-famous Jazz Jubilee. Armed with only a roll of copper wire, a pirate radio transmitter, and her ingenuity, can Shauna J. get the station back on the air in time to reveal the truth to her listeners?
