Score a Home Run with the USA Today Bestselling series-over 3.5 million copies in print

Visiting her old friends the Duffys in Arizona, Jessica watches their foster son Ty hit the winning run in an AA league playoff game. She and the Duffys are thrilled, but team owner Harrison Bennett is not-his son Junior and Ty are bitter rivals. Then Junior Bennett is found dead, his head caved in with a baseball bat. He and Ty were last seen fighting outside a bar, and Ty can't remember the rest of the night.

Jessica finds it hard to believe such a fine young man would wreck his life in a moment of anger. And when she starts looking into the case, she finds that for some people, baseball is more than just a game...

    Never Even Liked Baseball, Until I Read "Three Strikes and You're Dead"!

    Well written, excellent character/plot development; it has enough twists to keep a reader involved. It's intriguing without being so convoluted that one gets a headache from trying to keep lots of sub-plots straight. The insight into Minor League Baseball's darker side (I can believe that illegal betting takes place in most teams) makes murder seem very possible, not just fictional.
    It was also very refreshing not to have steamy sex, graphic violence, and foul language on every other page. So many of today's writers seem to believe that God's last name is "dammit", and that no chapter is complete without vividly described kinky sexual encounters
    I thoroughly enjoyed "Three Strikes and You're Dead". It is the first "Murder, She Wrote" novel I've read, it most certainly will not be my last!

    A lighthearted cozy

    Hudson County, New Jersey Family Division Superior Court Judge Jack Duffy and his wife Meg are in Mesa, Arizona to watch their foster son Ty Ramos play shortstop for the Rattlers, the local AA minor league team. Their friend Jessica Fletcher is also in town visiting the Duffys and rooting for Ty. Jessica learns that Ty and the owner¿s son Junior Bennett have competed for the shortstop position all season. With the championship on the line Ty pinch-hits for Junior. Though he hits the winning homerun, owner Harrison Bennet is irate with manager Buddy Washington.-------------- That night as the team celebrated their triumph, Ty and Junior get into a public fight at the dinner. The next day Junior is found dead as someone swung for the fences using his head as a ball. Sheriff Hualga arrests Ty based on circumstantial evidence including his juvenile past on the streets of Jersey City. While the Judge and his wife are in shock, Jessica cannot believe this capable in control young man lost his temper and in a fit of rage killed his rival. She plans to not only prove otherwise, but to uncover the culprit.-------------- The latest Murder She Wrote mystery takes the heroine out of New England to Arizona where she becomes embroiled in a local baseball murder case. The story line is fun to follow as a lighthearted cozy that fans of the series will value. Jessica is her usual logical self as she unpeels secrets beyond homicide in her attempt to exonerate Ty. The plot is the usual stuff in this long running series yet remains enjoyable light reading.---------------- Harriet Klausner
