From the Publisher
Harvey Blissberg is a former major league outfielder and private investigator, with a bad case of what his girlfriend Mickey Slavin calls "sad man-ism." But a phone call from his former team, the Providence Jewels, snaps him out of his funk and into a clubhouse filled with deadly tensions. Outfielder Moss Cooley is on the brink of doing the unthinkable-breaking Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak record-and anonymous threats on his life begin with the arrival of a headless lawn jockey...followed soon after by the head.
Reuniting Harvey Blissberg with the team, and the city, that formed the background for his Edgar Award-winning first mystery, Strike Three You're Dead, R. D. Rosen's Dead Ball is a chilling look at our national pastime. It is also a troubling look at our national disgrace of racism. In an investigation that takes Blissberg from the polished diamond of the Jewels'refurbi9shed ballpark to the inner sanctum of the club owner and the rough fields of the rural south, Rosen lays bare the hatred just below the cool surface of our grown-up games.

Harvey Blissberg may have his qualms about the way the summer game is played these days, and he has certainly lost a step or two on the center field grass, but he's in perfect condition to stop a murderer in his tracks...and R.D. Rosen is just the man to manage all the players in this explosive and rewarding new crime novel.
