Overview

Sometimes, bad things happen to good people. Sometimes, good people do bad things. And sometimes, people are just plain bad...

Major league baseball umpire Marshall Connors is trying to regroup and get his life back to something resembling normal. After surviving the wrath of a psychotic revenge-hungry killer during the most recent World Series, Marshall wants nothing more than a return to the relative obscurity of his profession and the simplicity of the game he loves, all while nurturing a new relationship.

Former FBI agent John King isn't really a bad person, but a few loose wires make him seem that way. He, too, is looking for normalcy, but disgraced and fired by the FBI, King must battle through a horde of personal demons to get there. A new job gives him hope, but the struggles grow when King discovers another monster, one more vicious and dangerous than those in his head.

Before the walls of his world collapse completely, King makes a last desperate attempt for salvation, leading him once again into Marshall's life. The collision leaves the umpire in the middle of another game he would rather not play.

With the help of his best friend, Thomas Hillsborough--ex-CIA spy--Marshall can only hope a solution arrives in time, before the 7th inning stretch...

Because you can't stretch when you're dead.

    Love it!

    If you "liked" the first book you will love this second one! It takes you more in depth into the charactor's lives and relationships and as you get to know them a mystery subtletly is forming with murders to follow. Baseball is more in the background in this book. I liked how you were gentley reminded of what happened in the other book and the way its done it could be a stand alone book too. The scenes with the shrink were very well done, it made me think of Tony Soprano on tv and the tense relationship he had with his lady shrink. Written like a pro and a enjoyable read!

    Another amazing book by Mr. Schatz!

    Wow. After all the craziness of his first book, we all assumed the world of baseball in Philadelphia would go back to normal. Turns out we couldn't be farther from the truth! In this sequal to his first publication, Mr. Schatz again takes us on a whirlwind ride, involving failiar faces still trying to recover from the bedlam of the World Series. He doesn't suffer from any let down, as this book is just as fun and fast paced as the first one! A page turner, I was unable to put it down, and I wound up reading the whole book in just under 24 hours!

    Congratulations to Mr. Schatz on yet another amazing book! I eagerly look forward to reading more of his work!
