Biographical and Professional Information
Goldsborough is a journalist and was a reporter for the Associated Press and for the Chicago Tribune. He was also the editor for Advertising Age.
Goldsborough had always been an avid reader of the Nero Wolfe stories. Through his life, he devoured all of the 70-plus Wolfe mysteries. After Rex Stout, the author of the Wolfe stories, passed, Robert started his quest to gain permission from Stout's estate to use the Nero Wolf characters and settings in a published work. He began writing an original Wolfe novel "Murder in E Minor" and then wrote six more Wolfe novels after that.
Even though he enjoyed writing these books, Goldsborough longed to create his own characters, which he did in "Three Strikes You're Dead," set in the gang-ridden Chicago of the late 1930s and narrated by a Tribune police reporter.
