Shooting for the Stars

A Gil Malloy Novel

Shooting for the Stars

“I read it in two sittings.”—Sandra Brown, New York Times bestselling author

"Smart, juicy...highly satisfying.” –Publishers Weekly

“Belsky is a tantalizing, devilish, mesmerizing writer.”—Killer Nashville

Following up his “engrossing journalistic thriller” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) The Kennedy Connection, R.G. Belsky brings back New York City newspaper reporter Gil Malloy in a gripping new mystery about the closed-case murder of a Hollywood actress.

Some thirty years ago, movie star Laura Marlowe was shot to death by a crazed fan in New York City, who then killed himself. The police ruled it a murder-suicide, the case was closed, and the beloved starlet faded away into history. But when New York Daily News reporter Gil Malloy re-investigates Marlowe’s death, long-buried secrets emerge and he begins to uncover the trail of a new serial killer. And more people are dying. Now, before he can solve the current crimes, Gil must find out what really happened to Laura Marlowe all those years ago.

Delving deep into the newsroom as we know it today—sensationalized, digitized, and ruled by social media—R. G. Belsky has crafted another expert thriller that shines with his shrewd and engaging style.
