Overview

Murderer's Row

It's 1920, and perennial 25th man Mickey Rawlings has found a spot on the Detroit roster with a .250 average and 20 stolen bases. Respectable numbers for a utility infielder. Unfortunately that doesn't exempt him from being put in a lineup for murder, even if he's playing toss with the tempestuous talents of Ty Cobb. Mickey admits he was at a player's union rally in Fraternity Hall, but he insists he had nothing to do with the bullet that shot organizer Emmett Siever. It turns out convincing his teammates and the front office of his innocence is about as easy as selling a slide into second to a blind ump. Before Mickey's journeyman career takes one last wrong turn--into a grave--he needs to find the real killer to keep the ball in play and maybe contribute to the Tigers climbing out of last place in the standings.

Spring, 1920: All Detroit Tigers infielder Mickey Rawlings wants is a regular place in the Tigers' lineup. But, when Emmett Siever, an old-time baseball player trying to organize a players' union, is killed, Mickey, accused of trying to sabotage the union efforts, is the #1 suspect. Now Mickey's strongest desire is to clear his name and find out who really killed Emmett. 304 pp. National print publicity. Targeted ads.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
It's 1920, WWI is over and the world is getting back to "normalcy." Mickey Rawlings, the journeyman utility infielder last seen in Murder at Wrigley Field, has been dealt from the Chicago Cubs to the Detroit Tigers. After breaking his arm in spring training, he ends up at a Wobblies meeting where he finds the fatally shot body of Emmett Siever, an ex-major leaguer who had been trying to organize a players union. The next day, the newspapers credit Rawlings with the killing, described as self-defense. Pretty soon, the Wobblies are out to get him; Hub Donner, union-buster, is buying him lunch; and his own teammates, including the surly Ty Cobb, aren't too crazy about his return to the lineup. Then Rawlings can't find the Detroit cop who told the papers he was the killer; pretty soon there is another Wobblie death. Getting caught up in Attorney General Mitchell Palmer's red scare, Rawlings and his old journalist friend Karl Landforswho lands in jailpursue leads that end with Rawlings loading his old army Colt .45 for action. Though taut with plot twists, this fourth Rawlings mystery doesn't pack the wallop of Soos's earlier novels, which kept a tighter focus on baseball lore and mores. (Apr.)
