"Equal parts baseball and mystery are the perfect proportion."-Robert Parker The Big Dead Machine It's 1921, and journeyman infielder Mickey Rawlings finds himself on yet another team, the Cincinnati Reds, who everyone remembers for "winning" the 1919 World Series against the infamous Chicago Black Sox. In an effort to refurbish their image, Oliver Perrimen, a die-hard Reds fan cooks up a memorabilia exhibit of the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings, who went undefeated in a historic coast-to-coast romp. But before the tour can reach first base, someone strikes Ollie out with a well-placed bullet. Since murder seems to follow Mickey around like a hitting slump he can't quite quit, he starts snagging clues. Soon enough he finds his hands full with a forgotten murder, breaking and entering, and an angry girlfriend. But when the game of his own life is on the line, Mickey Rawlings is a born survivor. At least he hopes... Praise for the Mickey Rawlings Baseball Mysteries "Full of life."-The New York Times Book Review on Hanging Curve "A perfect book for the rain delay...a winner!"-USA Today on Murder at Fenway Park "Delightful...mixing suspense, period detail that will leave readers eager for subsequent innings."-Publishers Weekly on Murder at Fenway Park
