Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Best known for his continuation of the Nero Wolfe mystery series after the death of Rex Stout, Robert Goldsborough has developed an original series with a new cast of crisp and clever characters. Steve "Snap" Malek leads readers through the streets of historical Chicago with his own unique view of the city so dear to the hearts of many. We hope you will enjoy reading the Snap Malek as much as we have.

From the Back Cover

Against the ominous backdrop of America's entry into World War II, the navy still reels from the devastation wreaked at Pearl Harbor and the crushing defeat of US ground troops in the Philippines.

On the home front, scientists at the University of Chicago under Enrico Fermi labor feverishly on a secret weapon that promises to reverse the fortunes of battle. However, sinister forces are at work on the outwardly serene Gothic campus, resulting in violent deaths.

While work grinds on in the shadowy catacombs beneath an abandoned football stadium–work that will forever alter our world–Chicago Tribune police reporter Steve Malek delves into the intrigue. Battling for an exclusive story and, ultimately, for his very life, Malek finds himself in the midst of history-in-the-making.

This book reminds the reader of interesting secret events in our country's history while entertaining the reader with some fictional framework.
I enjoyed reading this book and learning about the University of Chicago's connection to a secret project for our government.

Goldsborough is a very good writer and the Snap Malek stories are fun.
I also enjoy his Nero Wolfe pastiches.

Bob Goldsborough could make a phone boo interesting reading. Snap Malek, should be the next cult hero of mystery readers.
