Terrific review coming from Booklist

Just found out I'm getting a terrific review from Booklist on BELOW THE FOLD. They say: "It's all about breaking news, and the book's pace keeps up. Belsky's background as a reporter shines through, but he's also earned his place as a writer of memorable characters and intricate plots." Full review will run in Booklist's April 1 issue.
