about this item
In this story, author John DeDakis draws on his own personal pain – the sudden death of his twenty-two year-old son Stephen – in what promises to be a true page-turner. DeDakis also draws on his forty-five year journalism career (twenty-five years at CNN) to show the daily struggles that go on behind the scenes in day-to-day, deadline-a-minute journalism.
Praise for Bullet in the Chamber:
Bullet in the Chamber manages to capture all of the intensity, grit and breathlessness of covering the presidency in an age of nonstop news and fierce competition. Lark Chadwick stands out as a protagonist who is at once compelling and compulsively true to form. John DeDakis gets inside the head of a modern-day White House journalist who has no idea what's in store for her when she begins this rollercoaster of a ride.~Josh Lederman, Associated Press White House Reporter
