As Double Exposure, Stephen Collins's sexy, suspenseful new novel opens, Joe McBride, TV critic and divorced but devoted father, is suddenly having a lot of women trouble. His ex-wife is angry at him, his fiancee has just dumped him, and a stunning, unabashed colleague is about to upstage him in a career move. Then, he meets Amy or is her name Nannie? Is she sweet, sensual, and sensationally seductive, or is she an edgy New York weirdo who can't seem to tell the truth? You'll find out when Joe does, and in the meantime you'll feel for him and reel with him as he tries to keep his life on a somewhat even keel. The New York backdrop is well done, and there's a great cameo appearance by a young Rupert Murdoch-like Aussie who wants to gobble up media. Susan Ericksen performs.
