From the author of the acclaimed Reed Ferguson mystery series!

 

Reed Ferguson returns in another page-turner mystery set in the world of professional baseball.

 

When Charlie Preston, second baseman for the Colorado Rockies, is suspected of murdering his best friend, Pete Westhaven, he turns to Denver private investigator Reed Ferguson for help. Reed believes in Charlie’s innocence, so he takes the case. But as Reed digs into the murder victim’s past, he quickly finds himself ensnared in the clandestine underworld of illegal steroids. As the lists of suspects grows, Reed battles not only to solve the crime, but also to save the person he loves most.

 

All of Reed’s pals are back in this humorous tale with a clever homage to film noir.

 

Praise for the acclaimed first novel in the Reed Ferguson mystery series, THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN IN THE MOVIES:

 

Kirkus Reviews on this private investigator series:

 

The promising kickoff to Pawlish's comic mystery series, starring far-from-perfect PI Reed Ferguson. Pawlish earns high marks for plot construction, with twists and turns naturally unfolding as Ferguson, inexperienced but not incapable, feels his way through the case. A good-humored mystery series worth following.

 

Readers' Favorite on this mystery series:

This is one witty, hilarious private detective story that will keep the reader glued to the pages until the very end.
