They feed off each other’s strengths and vulnerabilities in order for each of them to increase their profiles and achieve their own selfish goals. Their alliance produces frightening yet conceivable results in today’s world of broadcast journalism.
Lead Story carries readers through paradise-like familiar Miami landscapes but also exposes the darker, somewhat sinister side of the South Florida. In the end readers will discover that desperate people will go to extraordinary lengths in order to keep their new-found wealth and status or to simply kill repeatedly so they may grasp their “15 minutes of fame.”
