[Read by Jim Meskimen] When his friend Peralta, newly sworn in as sheriff, is shot by a sniper, David Mapstone, former historian and new deputy sheriff, can't keep a cool, academic distance and he'd better not. While Peralta lies comatose in the hospital, the powers that be install Mapstone as acting sheriff in his friend's place. Mapstone feels unqualified, but he's the only person whose temporary appointment won't infuriate all the other candidates, who want the sheriff's position permanently. Meanwhile, a cryptic note scrawled by Peralta before the shooting forces Mapstone to confront his own personal history, inadvertently drawing him into danger. Mapstone soon discovers that the past has deadly consequences and the mean streets of the new West have never been more sinister.

He’s a man whose life is so intertwined with his job that we know him only as “the columnist.” He writes for a newspaper in Seattle, isn’t afraid to stir up trouble and keeps his life – including his multiple lovers and his past – in safe compartments. It’s all about to be violently upended when he goes out on what seems like the most mundane of assignments, looking into a staid company that “never makes news.” But from the moment one of his sources takes a dive off a downtown skyscraper, the columnist is plunged into a harrowing maze of murder, intrigue and secrets that powerful forces intend to keep hidden at all costs. All he has to go on is a corporate world where nothing is as it seems, increasingly menacing encounters with mysterious federal agents and the unsettling meme “eleven/eleven.” Meanwhile, the paper itself is dying. The columnist joins with an aggressive young reporter to see if one explosive story can save a newspaper – and much more. They’re running to make the deadline of their lives and failure will bring lethal consequences.Deadline Man is Jon Talton at his best, a novel that is both electrifying and intelligent, capturing the romance and harsh reality of newspaper journalism while raising important questions that will haunt readers long after the fast-paced action ends.
