A Novel of Baseball and Murder. When the game got slow, Lofton looked down past his feet, through the planks, and watched them. They played two at a time, first scratching a cross in the dirt, then sketching a circle around it. They flipped their knives through the air, seeing who could come closest, point first, to dead center. When a fire truck took a nearby corner, its siren lilting and whirling, echoing through all the neighboring streets at once,.

Book by Stansberry, Domenic
  • The basic mystery was fine, but other than that I pretty much liked nothing about this book. It definitely read as being pretty dated, and it was a bit racist and a bit sexist. None of the characters were likable, which made it difficult to care what happened in the story. I also thought the ending was very unsatisfying. I don't think this was necessarily an awful book, but it just wasn't for me.

    Received from NetGalley.

  • One of the most intriguing, thought-provoking, mysterious mystery I have ever read. The climax (aka ending) is without precedent in the genre and "screamed" for more! Using baseball as a vehicle, Stansberry incorporated the inner thoughts of what it means to play the game and solve(?) a murder.
