It is 1949, and in Chicago, all of the elite and powerful are gathering at the mansion of newspaper tycoon Howard Croft Tate to celebrate the twenty-first birthday of his eldest daughter, Morgana. But when the birthday gifts are announced, it is Howard Tate's own gift to his daughter -- his great newspaper, the Chicago Star -- that overshadows all else. When he dies, Howard Tate tells Morgana, the Star will become her paper. And yet, almost from that very day onward, Morgana knows that her father's empire will become the most exhilarating, demanding, and heart-breaking gift she will ever know. For with the Star come a host of effects and obligations that the young Morgana could never have expected; and, beyond the deadlines and the camera flashes, the smart columns, and the blistering headlines, like great rewards and greater risks, painful romance, and--most surprising of all--the need for Morgana to choose between her own family and her responsibility to the public truth. At once sweepingly grand and absorbing, Headlines is full of the Masterton touches that have made his books so successful: an engaging and believable heroine; a breakneck pace; and a panorama of colorful heroes and villains. Newsmen, gangsters, beautiful women, the rich and famous--all make up the lavish tapestry of this saga. Headlines is novel writing on a grand scale; the kind of tale that Graham Masterton has made his own.
