Robert Harris Walker. Welcome to Chicago, 1893 - where new wonders are being unveiled. and a monster feeds on the unsuspecting. Tens of thousands are flocking to a bustling, wind-swept metropolis in the middle of America for the great Exposition of 1893 - to see the future and to ride Mr. Ferris's remarkable wheel. A city of hope and hardship has caught the attention of the world - and a maniacal killer has made it his hunting ground. Inspector Alastair Ransom carries the burden of the dead on his shoulders.

Any baseball buff will enjoy this entertaining look at the hey-day of the Big Red Machine." ―Monterey (CA) Herald

In interviews with players, including Bench, Rose, Concepcion, Perez, manager Sparky Anderson, journalists, owners, and civic leaders, Walker reveals what it is that defines the Reds, and what Cincinnati as a city represents.

  • Good Book but spent a lot of time on Ancient History of the Reds & the community.

  • The book begins with an excellent demographic background of Cincinnati and the surrounding area and gives the reader a true feeling of the baseball climate in SW Ohio, in 1869 and now. I found the interviews with Sparky Anderson, Buddy Bell, Johnny Bench, Brooks Robinson, Bernie Stowe, Pete Rose, Joe Morgan, and a host of others insightful and enlightening. This is no typical historical biography of the Big Red Machine. This is an indepth look at what made the Machine tick and how it accomplished the amazing feats it did. This book is a must for the true Reds fan and baseball lover.
