THUNK! It's the sound an ad-packed magazine makes when it's dropped on a table. At Carlyle Nash Media, it's the sound of success. And publisher Mitch Blake has been hearing it for a decade. But when the heavily hyped debut of World Magazine gets panned in the press and advertisers flee, Mitch must control the damage. Can he right the ship and protect his reputation? Or will both be sunk by Paul Cavanaugh, a hard-drinking, paranoid staffer who has stolen an item Mitch wants back: a beach ball.
