The assassination of JFK continues to capture our imaginations and newcomer R.G. Belsky taps right into this zeitgeist for a twisting tale of murder and mayhem in modern New York. After several people are found murdered and a Kennedy half-dollar coin is found at every scene, disgraced reporter Gil Malloy is certain that it’s all somehow tied to what happened in Dallas. But saying and proving are two different things, and before long Malloy finds himself at the mercy of some powerful forces who want nothing more than to keep the truth hidden. “Who better to tell the story of a newsman in disgrace than a man from the New York tabloids, where disgrace was a badge of honor. Belsky has the news man’s gift. He tells his story well.”—Jimmy Breslin.
