The Kennedy Connection was a cleverly written, suspenseful page turner in the best sense and Shooting for the Stars is its' worthy successor. In this saga, Malloy is thrown into the sleazy, headline-grabbing world of a prime-time TV newsmagazine when he joins forces with a beautiful reporter who has uncovered answers long buried that lead to the solving of a cold case from decades before.
It's clear that something must be done to reform criminal justice in New Mexico, but that doesn't mean that just anything should be done. A tougher three strikes law will take the state further away from reform.
"We're Number 1!" (We must be so proud...)
Koryta uses the elements of the winter in Indiana to add chill to his story. Then he overlays that with any reader's feeling of claustrophobia by taking Novak deep down into the bowels of the earth. These isolated areas of tight space and total darkness play to all of our darkest fears.

When I read the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter, I do think of Mike Brown, Eric Garner and Tamir Rice. I also think of Penny Proud, London Chanel and Candra Keels. But I also think of Andre and the two other young queer people of color who been murdered in Pittsburgh in the past two years.
