Laurel, MD (PRWEB) January 10, 2006
Echelon Press Publishing, is pleased to announce the recent induction of its latest author into its Diamond Club Best Seller program. THREE STRIKES YOU'RE DEAD (June '05), a Golden Age mystery, written by Chicago author, Robert Goldsborough, of the famed Nero Wolfe novels, has reached a level of excellence within the company as it's overall best selling novel for 2005. Goldsborough offers an original set of characters in settings familiar to local Chicagoans.
THREE STRIKES YOU'RE DEAD takes fans back to 1938 Chicago, to a time when politics were king and baseball ruled. Dizzy Dean sat in the driver's seat of the Cubs' World Series ride, while scandal rocked the tight political community of the Windy City.
"Goldsborough is a master storyteller, providing crackling dialogue and plot twists around every corner – readers are in for a real treat!" –Max Allan Collins, author of ROAD TO PURGATORY
Goldsborough's trademark style of gritty detectives and vivid description are at a definite high in this novel of murder and mayhem. Deftly written dialogue and a unique and colorful cast of characters bring this classic-style mystery to life.
Booklist (6/15/05 100th Anniversary Issue) says… Goldsborough, best known as the heir to Rex Stout via his half-dozen Nero Wolfe novels, creates a prewar Chicago that is at once sinister and appealing. He also weaves an engaging subplot involving Dizzy Dean and the Chicago Cubs' drive to the 1938 World Series. An enormously entertaining caper."
Robert Goldsborough is widely acclaimed for his contribution to the mystery genre as the author who kept the legendary Nero Wolfe alive after the passing of the mystery icon Rex Stout. Mr. Goldsborough is the author of such treasures as THE SILVER SPIRE, MURDER IN E MINOR, and THE MISSING CHAPTER.
Robert Goldsborough recently completed THE SHADOW OF THE BOMB. The second title in the Snap Malek Mystery series is slated for an October 2006 release from the Echelon Press Publishing.
