    Below the Fold by R.G. Belsky starts off with a murder, and the fast-paced action never stops. Every life is important, until it is time to broadcast the daily news. Murdered homeless people rarely make the top news slot, but when Channel 10 News Director Clare Carlson agrees to run a ...

    The second book in R.G. Belskey's Clare Carlson series. Clare is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist managing a TV news station, and decides to run a "below the fold" story (of lesser importance) about the killing of a homeless woman in an ATM vestibule. This is followed by the vicious...

    Quick fun read Clare Carlson?s latest investigation starts with a great setup ? a list of five apparently unrelated names at a grisly New York City murder scene. Solving the crime, Clare, a TV news editor, takes many twists and turns, some plausible, others less so. No matter wh...

    I was excited to win a Kindle copy of Below the Fold in a Goodreads giveaway, as I enjoyed Yesterday's News, the first Clare Carlson mystery in this series. The author is an experienced journalist so his portrayal of the newsroom is realistic. Familiar characters and a few loose ends ...

    5 stars I am always a bit skeptical when I start reading the second book in a series, when the first book, in this case, YESTERDAY?S NEWS, blew me away. Did BELOW THE FOLD stand up to the comparison? Clare Carlson, news executive at Channel 10 news and former Pulitzer Prize winne...

    This is former newsman Dick Belsky?s second crime story featuring Pulitzer-Prize winning print journalist Clare Carlson, now significantly reduced in career status by working as the news director for Channel 10 television. Clare has a wittily cynical, self-deprecating take on her job...

    What a wonderful twisty thriller! This is my favorite kind of book. It is about a news director for Channel 10 News. She used to be a investigative reporter who won a Pulitzer for a story on a missing girl. She has not lost her investigative instincts and decides to delve into the murd...

    Clare Carlson is a TV News Director. She was a Pulitzer Award winning journalist before she got her job. One day, when planning the evening news, it was decided to pay some attention to the death of a homeless woman who was murdered by an ATM machine. Usually, that kind of story is fir...

    This was a great read, and almost begs to be made into a movie. It?s not hard to tell that the author was a journalist, and still has that nose for a great story. ...

    Even better than the first book! There is nothing more exciting when reading a series than to have each book get better and better. This is definitely the case with Below the Fold. The two things I loved most about this book: the plot and the journalism insights. The plot had eve...

    3.5 stars (I liked it a lot) "Below the Fold" is the latest release by author Dick (R.G.) Belsky, a newsroom veteran and crime writer, and the second book in his Clare Carlson Mysteries series which is set in the fast-paced and cut-throat TV News industry. Just like the first ins...

    Another fantastic story in this series which I really hope continues. Clare is very real and flawed but a strong woman who does what she has to for a news story while trying to make each person a human being and not just a name on TV. I did figure out who the killer is but I absolute...

    Do you believe in fate? Two women from completely different social economic backgrounds are murdered. What is the connection? I enjoyed following the narrative as the author followed clues back in time and was still surprised at who the murdered was way the end. Nicely done. ...

    I enjoyed this second novel in the series featuring an award winning journalist now TV news director. The style of the plot is police procedure but features an amateur sleuth. The construction of the plot is complex as a link must be found between the murders of a homeless woman and a ...

    The title comes from a newspaper term, in the days of fold-up big newspapers, and even though this book is set in a TV news firm and pretty modern, the studio still isn't up to date online and tweeting - hard to keep up when year by year the telcoms world gets faster. A female news...

    Below the Fold is one of those rare books that grips you from the beginning and doesn?t let go. I?ve read a lot lately that had an enthralling beginning, and I wouldn?t say Below the Fold?s beginning is all that necessary, but once the writing started in chapter one, I couldn?...

    Clare Carlson is a character that gets under your skin. Not always in the best way. She's not exactly loveable but she is compelling. She can't let things go. It's a great quality for a reporter and for a mystery character. News that is below the fold is the news that won't sell the pa...

    Dick Belsky is the Gayle Sayers of the sudden plot twist, a master of the literary limp leg, hip fake and juke as he takes readers on a juddering broken-field run with his latest Clare Carlson mystery, Below The Fold. Belsky?s at the top of his game with this one, deftly reversing...
