Belinda Masters was at the top of her game, editor-in-chief of a prestigious London paper, when she was toppled by a scandal, and forced to return home to New York in disgrace. Now, working for a tabloid, she spends her time writing puff pieces, and looking for that one story that will resuscitate her reputation.
When the body of a young girl is found floating in the river, Belinda sees her chance. But, as she investigates the story, she finds herself in the crosshairs of a vicious serial killer who kidnaps her. After she’s rescued, though, her troubles are only beginning. Now, she’s targeted by corrupt politicians and businessmen who will do anything to keep the tap of federal money flowing into their pockets. Even with a friend on the NYPD, she is overwhelmed, and has to get to the bottom of the story, or die trying.
Tabloid by Robin Masters is an engrossing thriller from start to finish. The author paints a grim picture of the dark underbelly of a city when politics and money cross paths. An engaging cast of characters, and a story that will keep you turning the pages.
This one’s a five-star read.
