Do Mondays leave you feeling glum and depressed? Do you hit the snooze alarm with a sense of dread as you stumble to the kitchen for that first cup of coffee?
You're not alone. 99% of the world's population goes to work sick and exhausted on Monday mornings. Okay, maybe that's a slight exaggeration, but I'm confident it's a pretty high percentage.
How do I know these things? I'm Maggie Walsh, psychologist turned radio talk show host in REEL MURDER. You may have heard about me. I actually left a cushy practice in mid-town Manhattan (where I treated the "worried well") for a job at WYME, a radio station in south Florida. My mother, Lola, never lets me forget it.
Lola is an actress (clinging to the bottom rungs of show biz in D-list movies) and I think she envied me my cushy job in New York. Being a radio talk show is fun and adventurous, but it doesn't have much in the way of job security. If my ratings tumble, I'm out the door.
And there was that nasty little matter of a dead guru. Was it my fault he was a guest on my show and turned up dead? I think not! I managed to solve his murder with the help of hunky detective Rafe Martino and my trusty dog Pugsley. I seem to find myself caught up in another murder investigation and this time it's a dead actress. How do I get myself into these things? Stay tuned!
