One year after the 9/11 attacks, Alex Vane—a brilliant, carb-obsessed reporter for The New York Standard—wants nothing more than to break into the flashy world of TV news. But when he stumbles on the scoop of a lifetime, Alex’s tightly controlled world is rocked: his editor buries his story, a source turns up dead, and he finds himself at the center of a violent media conspiracy.
Alex enlists the help Camila Gray—a captivating media professor—as he receives a series of tips from a mysterious anonymous source. Aided by an Internet genius, a billionaire’s sexy widow, and a washed-up sports reporter, Alex and Camila uncover a $500-million secret that could derail the largest corporate media merger in history.
It’s a secret that unearths dark memories from Alex’s past. It’s a secret that leads them back to the morning of 9/11. And it’s a secret that could get them both killed.
“The Anonymous Source evokes comparisons to John Grisham’s finest—The Firm and The Pelican Brief…with a touch of All The President’s Men…A high stakes, explosive debut novel from a talented new writer sure to do damage to the best-seller lists.”
~Robert Dugoni, #1 Amazon and New York Times Bestselling Author of My Sister’s Grave
“From the smoky streets of New York to Hawaiian paradise, Fuller’s story takes us into the minds of a reporter, a grieving woman, and a killer—daring us not to turn the page. As a reporter, I relished the chase. As a reader, I can’t wait for more.”
~Julia Park Tracey, author of Veronika Layne Gets the Scoop
