Cora Baxter is back - and this time she's facing the most important deadline of her career.
When TV reporter Cora Baxter attends the scene of a murder in a London park, she's horrified to discover the victim is someone she knows and devastated when one of her best friends is charged with the crime. Suddenly the fun-filled life of Cora and her eccentric camera crew takes a darker turn. Cora is convinced that her friend is innocent, but with seemingly solid evidence, the police investigation team - reluctantly led by Cora's boyfriend, DCI Adam Bradberry - believe the case is closed. With a trail of clues that leads all the way to New York, can Cora find out the truth before the trial begins, or is it already too late?
The Deadline is the second in the hugely popular Cora Baxter Mysteries series by acclaimed broadcaster Jackie Kabler.
