The Friday Edition: #bookreview

The Friday Edition

“The Friday Edition” by Betta Ferrendelli is set in Denver, Colorado. Although, the book opens with a young district attorney falling to her death, don’t let it dissuade you from visiting Denver in the future.

Samantha Church is a reporter for a local newspaper. She is the sister of Robin, the district attorney who died in the first chapter. Both sisters had issues with alcoholism. Robin had been sober up until the day of her death.

Samantha hasn’t admitted to herself that she has a problem with alcohol. She has already lost custody of her daughter and fired from a decent job at a different newspaper. You could say that things are not going well for her in any way.

Sam has a feeling that Robin did not commit suicide. The police are ready to close the investigation because they believe that she jumped off her balcony on purpose. Sam wants to follow her instincts and find out whatever she can about Robin’s last few months at work.

After some digging in Robin’s files, she gets in touch with a police officer, Rey, who had been helping Robin on a drug ring investigation. Sam and Rey are positive that Robin found out something that was going to upset the wrong people.

Sam tries to sober up in order to do some investigative reporting. Unfortunately, alcoholism doesn’t care about deadlines. She messes up quite a bit but manages to redeem herself. Sam is the underdog but I kept hoping that she would overcome her challenges.

If you are interested in reporters, cops and mysteries, then you will probably enjoy “The Friday Edition.”

If you are easily triggered by bad cops, then you should hold off reading it for a bit longer.
