Описание: THE DEADLY CONFINES While the nation wages war against Germany in 1918, utility infielder Mickey Rawlings has been traded to the North Side of Chicago. He's batting a career high (a respectable .274) and the Cubs are in first place. For the first time in a long while Mickey is feeling financially secure enough to buy furniture. That's when his best friend--rookie Willie Kaiser--is shot dead right on the diamond. While the official explanation is "accidental death from a stray bullet," Mickey thinks someone's taken the anti-war sentiment too far. Between collapsing bleacher seats and pretzel sabotage in the stands, Mickey's search for answers takes him from silent movies to speakeasies to the stockyards. As long as he keeps fouling off clues, it's only a matter of time before a killer is caught in a rundown--or Mickey is tagged out permanently.

Описание: It's One. . .Two. . .Three Strikes You're Dead Mickey Rawlings will do whatever it takes to help his New York Giants get past the Brooklyn Dodgers and into the World Series. If that means playing a bit part in a movie starring screen goddess Florence Hampton, he's game. What's not in the lineup is Florence washing up on a beach bloated and dead following a glitzy night of champagne and paparazzi. Since Rawlings has a perfect batting average when it comes to solving murders, he can't just walk away from the crime--especially when the killer has an agenda that could change more than a few lives forever--and puts the Series into perspective for Rawlings. While the boys of summer heat up for the final playoff stretch, every pitch, every swing heightens the tension on a mystery that might be too tough for Rawlings to deliver in the clutch this time.

Описание: Delightful. . .mixing suspense, period detail that will leave readers eager for subsequent innings. --Publishers Weekly Red Sox Rookie Knocks 'Em Dead It's 1912, the golden age: Fenway just opened, Ty Cobb is a nationwide sensation, and Mickey Rawlings finally made it to the majors. But what a welcome No sooner does Rawlings set foot inside the confines of the green monster before he's fingered for the monstrous murder of teammate Red Corriden. Sure, someone's used Red's head for batting practice, but just because Rawlings has fouled off a lot of balls in his time doesn't mean the cops have to be as blind as a rookie ump when it comes to his innocence. Since it's almost a century too soon for replay, Rawlings has no choice but to switch his baseball cap for a sleuthing hat to clear his name. Otherwise, it's going to be a short season in the majors and a long one behind bars.
