Stairway to Nowhere(2017)
(A book in the Snap Malek Mystery series)
A collection of stories by Robert Goldsborough
Chicago Tribune police reporter Steve "Snap" Malek is one of the newspaper's best feature writers, and now it looks like one of his well-crafted feature stories might come back to bite him. Malek had, at one time, turned out a laudatory piece about the heroics of a black man in the highly segregated Chicago of the mid-20th century. But now his erstwhile hero, Willson Forrest, stands accused of the near-fatal beating of his wife, who lingers in a coma. Malek, however, doubts Forrest's guilt, and begins a rogue investigation despite the police department's strong belief that they got the right man. The intrepid reporter digs in and uses all of his instincts and resourcefulness to figure out just what happened in the apartment building that left a bludgeoned woman fighting for her life and her husband fighting against prison--or the electric chair. Stairway to Nowhere is only one of Snap's dramatic encounters. This bonus companion book to the Snap Malek Mysteries offers several more of his unique experiences.
