“It’s a corporation that owns a whole bunch of media properties, online and off. The business started in San Francisco in 1865 with one weekly paper.” Mr. Liaberco frowned. “Oddly enough, the company has always been managed by a maiden aunt and her nephew.”

Jack barely heard Mr. Liaberco’s words. Nessa leaned against him, staring at the older man. Jack wrapped his arm around her waist. Without looking at him, she said, “If Jack is the Pryer’s new owner, and even his editor doesn’t know, how did you find out?”

“Because I’m the best at what I do. Ask Jack. Sly Liaberco always comes out ahead.”

“Not this time,” Jack said.
