Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
On a visit to Cooperstown, Mickey Rawlings, the oldest living ex-ballplayer, discovers his baseball card and is transported back to the Boston of April 1912--when the newspapers are full of stories about the Titanic , which has just sunk, and Fenway Park is brand new. Rawlings, a utility infielder just brought up by the Red Sox, reports to Fenway and trips over the body of Red Corriden, whose head has been smashed by a baseball bat. Rawlings, who throws up on the corpse, is grilled by Capt. O'Malley of the local precinct and Robert Tyler, the treasurer of the Red Sox. Joining the ball club in New York, Rawlings wonders why the the papers aren't covering the murder; then he learns from one of Tyler's flunkeys that the body was moved to avoid embarrassing the Red Sox. Next he finds out that Corriden was an unwitting accomplice in an effort to cheat Ty Cobb out of the 1910 batting championship and that some people have long memories. After the flunkey is murdered, Capt. O'Malley has more questions for his favorite suspect. Meanwhile readers will suspect ornery Cobb, crooked teammates and the PR-conscious club treasurer. Soos's delightful debut, mixing suspense, period detail and such legendary baseball greats as Cobb, Walter Johnson, Smokey Joe Wood and Tris Speaker, is a four-bagger that will leave readers eager for subsequent innings.

    Dead Ball Era and Dead Guy= Page Turner

    Troy Soos does a marvelous job of delivering a great murder mystery, while at the same time educating the reader about one of the most fascinating eras of baseball, the dead ball era. If you are a baseball fan, it's a good read. If you are a fan of the murder mystery genre, it's a good read. If you are a fan of both, don't miss it!

    Good book from someone who is not a baseball fan

    I am not interested in baseball or the Red Sox (and I'm from Boston), but I found this book very interesting and fast reading. I enjoyed the bits of history and could see in my mind the places in Boston that were written about. I enjoyed it very much. (ps: I even checked some of the facts to see if they were acurate and most were!!).

    MURDER AT FENWAY PARK --Troy Soos--As a baseball lover and myste

    MURDER AT FENWAY PARK --Troy Soos--As a baseball lover and mystery lover, I found this book to be a fun beginning to a baseball mystery series.  In 1912, a young baseball player, Mickey Rawlings, has just gotten his call to play in the big leagues with the Boston Red Socks.  He's come into the brand new Fenway Park to check in and immediately finds the body of one of his team mates.  Red Corriden's head is bash up badly, but the police and team owner just seem to want everything hushed up.  Would've want any bad publicity for the new stadium.  But there's much more to it than that, and Mickey finds he has to discover the murderer before someone kills him too.




    I found this book to be a real winner.  The mystery was interesting, and was filled with numerous fun facts about real historical players and team owners of that time period.  It was also interesting living the life of a ball player of that time.  Surely different from today's players.  Lots of big names came into play, Ty Cobb and Cy Young amongst them.  Troy Soos managed to be factual about the real people and maintain a fictional story as well. Great reading for mystery lovers during baseball season!!

    A good read especially for baseball fans

    Easy to read and not quite hard to put down. Nostalgic ending is better than strung out plot.
