About The Book
The Kennedy Connection author R.G. Belsky pens an original novella where the once-disgraced newspaper reporter Gil Malloy picks up a lead a fellow reporter kept secret from everyone—and which may have led to her murder…
Still plagued from the fallout of the “Houston” prostitute scandal, New York Daily News reporter Gil Malloy finds an opportunity to land a big story and return his reputation to good standing when a star reporter at the paper is found dead in an abandoned building. Even with all hands on deck to cover the high-profile case, no one at the paper can make sense of her death. But Gil’s investigative instinct takes over. Following up on a scoop the dead reporter had inexplicably kept secret, he is led to a peculiar event from decades ago: the Gallagher family murders.
High-profile murder, corrupt city politicians, serial killers, the press, the police—it’s all here in the follow-up to the critically acclaimed The Kennedy Connection, which New York Times bestselling author Jan Burke called a “thought-provoking thriller…loaded with tension and full of unexpected twists and turns.”
