Below The Fold by R.G. Belsky - GIVEAWAY!
ABOUT THE BOOK -
Every human life is supposed to be important. Everyone should matter. But that’s not the case in the cutthroat TV news-rating world where Clare Carlson works. Sex, money, and power sell. Only murder victims of the right social strata are considered worth covering. Not the murder of a “nobody.”
So, when the battered body of a homeless woman named Dora Gayle is found on the streets of New York City, her murder barely gets a mention in the media. But Clare―a TV news director who still has a reporter’s instincts―decides to dig deeper into the seemingly meaningless death. She uncovers mysterious links between Gayle and a number of wealthy and influential figures. There is a prominent female defense attorney; a scandal-ridden ex-congressman; a decorated NYPD detective; and―most shocking of all―a wealthy media mogul who owns the TV station where Clare works. Soon there are more murders, more victims, more questions. As the bodies pile up, Clare realizes that her job, her career, and maybe even her life are at stake as she chases after her biggest story ever.

MY THOUGHTS -
Wow, what a great spider webby story this was. You follow this lead, which takes you to that lead, which takes you to that person, who knew that person… It all sounds very complicated. You would think you'd need a piece of graph paper to make an outline to keep track of it all. But it was actually very easy to follow and not confusing at all because of the excellent writing. In the end it all ties together very neatly.
When I signed up for this tour I just loved the sound of the story so much that I did not even realize that this was the second book! But this is very easily a standalone that you don't need to read the first book to understand. A great story that keeps your interest on every page with excellent characters that draw you in and definitely leaves you wanting to read more about them. This story does make you think about what gets reported on the news and what doesn't. Who is important enough to be front cover and who are the ones that nobody cares about and they don't even make it into the news.
True story- A few days ago a body was found in my hometown under one of the bridges. It was found by some fishermen and had been in the river water for some months. And even now a few days later I still have not heard if they found out who it was. I wonder if that person was a "Dora Gayle" someone that nobody knows or cares about, but maybe they have a connection to someone else somewhere down the line? Hmm makes you think, huh? - https://www.northcentralpa.com/news/crime/human-remains-found-on-the-river-bank-saturday/article_44774f38-74c6-11e9-900f-73e8a28580ae.html
