BOOK DETAILS

Jon gives an overview of the book:

ONE . . . TWO . . . THREE STRIKES . . . YOU’RE DEAD . . . (At the Old Ball Game) For more than 30 years, Jon L. Breen has been quietly creating the finest series of sports mysteries in the history of fictional detecting – classical puzzlers featuring major league umpire, Ed Gorgon, as the amateur sleuth. When a body is found in a bullpen or when a ballplayer impossibly disappears between the ballpark and the showers or when a dying message filled with baseball lingo needs to be interpreted, Ed Gorgon is as effective at solving crimes as he is at calling a ballgame. Kill the Umpire contains 16 cases for the "Horsehide Sleuth," including one written especially for this collection.
