Charlie All Night Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Charlie All Night

Allie, a radio producer, has been ousted by her former assistant due to the fact that she and the morning show's personality have split up. When she is knocked down to doing the graveyard show, Allie's pissed off--and decides she's going to make it the best show in town just to get back at her former boss. But Charlie, the new guy for that slot, is perfectly content to remain in the background. Charlie's really there to look into a situation for a friend and the radio show is a cover. So, when he and Allie get involved, Charlie becomes quite uncomfortable about lying to her, and Allie grows more and more upset about the fact that Charlie's only scheduled to stay for a few months.
