BULLETS AND BYLINES is the SECOND book in The Emily Burnet Series. 
Sixteen year-old Anna Martinez has gone missing from her high school and the police know just who took her: her principal.

Journalist Emily Burnet has spent the last six months insisting she was in the right place at the right time when it came to helping Austin Police Department find national talk-show host Claire Scott. Since then, Emily’s tried to focus on her job – tell the story, not be a part of the story.

When Emily’s best friend, Rosa, comes to her, upset over a moment she witnessed between her student and her boss, Emily knows exactly who her friend needs to call – Detective Austin Cooper.

Emily makes a deal with Austin, one she’s made before, to be his source so she can keep Rosa in the loop and write the story for her job. If only keeping her feelings in check were as easy as helping her friend.

The clock counts down as they try to find the girl and Emily might have to make some long term choices about her career and where it’s taking her lately.

Emily Burnet has covered some high-profile stories in her time as a reporter, but she’s never come across a story this personal. It’s been six years since Emily last saw Claire Scott in college, but now Claire has vanished in Emily’s hometown, just days before the launch of her national talk show.

Curiosity has carried Emily in her career so far, but it might be too much when Emily finds herself bargaining with Detective Austin Cooper, the lead investigator on Claire’s case. She offers him information and insight on Claire, in exchange for first dibs on new developments in the case (and maybe some unanticipated sparks.)

As Emily tries to tie the woman she knew to the woman who disappeared, she realizes the bubbly journalist everyone loved was hiding a dark private life. Curiosity has helped Emily in the past, but this time it might make her the next big headline instead.

Emily Burnet is used to working hard and being the first to report on the breaking stories. When her competitors and colleagues start getting emails detailing of the murders across town before the police know, Emily finds herself having to work twice as hard to get the scoop on what’s happening in the investigation. With other journalists working to block her, Emily has to turn to another source – Detective Austin Cooper, her sometimes source, sometimes boyfriend.

Even Austin is hesitant to spill information as people are starting to wonder who Emily’s police source is. But when a break in the investigation provides a possible suspect, Emily and Austin realize the murderer might be embedded in one of the city’s newsrooms, ready to get the news whenever another body is found. Knowing that it’s only a matter of time before he reaches out to KATX, Emily must beat him at his own game without becoming the next subject of an email.
