"I enjoyed David's book as my background is in radio. It is accurate in the workings of a real regional radio newsroom. The story is an absolute treat. I must say that I was shocked at some of the events, I didn't see any of them coming at all! A combination of a thriller, business double dealing and a bit of romance all set in a radio news environment."
"Couldn't choose any other rating than 5 star...this was a book I couldn't set down...It kept me awake until the wee small hours.Written by an author who knows radio inside out, with believable characters.For people who like to be thrilled, this book is for you!I challenge anyone to work out the amazing twist before the conclusion..Pleasure recommending ..
A must read!"
Murder on the Airwaves
by David W Stokes
Joey Meekin swung round on his bar stool to face his companion.
“What do you think?”Frankie Willis shrugged his shoulders. They were big and broad and covered in faded blue denim.
“Dunno,” he replied.It wasn’t every day that someone walked into the Old Bull and Bush with a black attaché case securely chained to their right wrist.
And so begins MURDER on the AIRWAVES, from the author of WOUNDED HEART and the much talked about international thriller THE ICELANDER.MURDER on the AIRWAVES is set in the world of Independent Radio in the 1990s when commercial broadcasting franchises were vigorously sought after.
It is a story of murder and betrayal in a cut-throat and desperately competitive world. KPO Radio’s franchise is up for renewal. A rival consortium of local businessmen is putting in a bid for the broadcast licence. They have big plans, and nothing is going to stop them from getting their way. Some people would do anything to get what they didn’t deserve.
But they didn’t factor in the steely resolve of the station’s current line-up of presenters and news journalists whose jobs would be under threat if KPO lost out to their rivals. It was going to be murder to hold on to what they had.
