Russell Wiley works for the Daily Business Chronicle. The newspaper has not been fairing so well lately…thanks to the internet. Russell must find a way to keep Livington Kidd. Livington Kidd is the Chronicle’s largest financial advertiser. If Russell can not find to keep them from leaving, than the Chronicle will end up old news. To make matters worse, Russell’s co-workers are not shy about stabbing Russell in the back. Can Russell find his way out of this rat race and come out on top?
Russell Wiley is Out to Lunch and kind of forgot to come back. While I liked getting the inside look of what it takes to run a newspaper, I just didn’t connect with any of the characters. I thought Russell’s co-workers were whiny and too snarky for my taste. No wonder Russell would find ways to get away from it all for a while. I really wanted to like Russell but he was also such a downer. Mr. Hine does show some sliver of promise.
