New York journalist R. G. Belsky has written another thriller, following his widely acclaimed  
The Kennedy Connection.   Shooting for the Stars (Atria) is another tale about Gil Malloy, a fabled but flawed investigative reporter for the New York Daily News.   Malloy solves the mystery of the death of a movie star three decades earlier and links it to the recent murder of a TV talk show personality.  This great read involves the mob.  What more has to be said.

Most interesting is the subplot--the conflict between Malloy and his supervising editor.  The editor, half a generation younger and female, has the mission of building the Daily News' online presence.  Malloy tries to be the classic crime reporter.   Belsky--once managing editor of the Daily News--describes the decline of dead tree newspapers and their replacement by the digital media.

Get ready for a surprise ending and a great read.  
Shooting for the Stars will be released on August 11, 2015.
