Major league baseball umpire Marshall Connors just wants to return to the days when nobody cared about him or who he knew, when he was nothing more than an umpire, calling 'em like he saw 'em, a footnote and not a headline, when the game, baseball, was all that mattered, the days when things were fun.

But his life has been something of a movie the past few

Overview

Major league baseball umpire Marshall Connors just wants to return to the days when nobody cared about him or who he knew, when he was nothing more than an umpire, calling 'em like he saw 'em, a footnote and not a headline, when the game, baseball, was all that mattered, the days when things were fun.

But his life has been something of a movie the past few years. An assignment to work the World Series nearly ended in tragedy for Marshall and a few others in his life, courtesy of a revenge seeking maniacal serial killer. During the season that followed, chaos came again in the form of a mentally unstable ex-FBI agent.

The near-death experiences extracted a heavy toll. Marshall lost his mentor, he lost his girlfriend, but more than that, he lost much of his innocence. His world was no longer the grass and dirt and smells of the ballpark. It was something darker, a place he would never willingly choose to be.

And now, it is happening again…

A man from Marshall's darkness has returned. An explosion rocks the world. A suicide takes place. People are dead and dying, but nothing is as it seems. Confusion reigns and Marshall is once more in the middle of it, unsure of the connections, but wanting very much to not know what they are.

The events are all links in a chain started years ago, by a man Marshall trusts like no other. As those links are revealed, trust becomes betrayal, stability becomes chaos, and Marshall must do all he can to avoid being pulled under for the last time. He must break the chain, he must find an out…

He needs a RALLY KILLER.

The ability to create something from nothing is probably what I enjoy most about writing. There are no restrictions to hold you back. If you can imagine it, you can include it in your story. I can’t sew with a needle and thread very well, but I can weave with my words. My ultimate goal is to create a fabric others can enjoy. That so many have in such a short time is a pretty cool thing. My first three novels are now available. The Marshall Connors Series consists of GAME 7: DEAD BALL, 7TH INNING DEATH, and RALLY KILLER. Mystery. Suspense. Baseball. A perfect combination.

Wow Allen has done it once again and this is the best of the 3 in the series. It was like it's over? That was a fast paced fantabulous thriller story of mystery, murder, a little romance and a suicide. Again baseball is in the background of the story, this makes for a different and interesting story and you don't even have to like baseball to love this story or the series!!!! Dick Francis is to horseracing compared to what Allen has done with baseball! You won't regret getting this one with the "who dunnit" and the twist and turns to keep you interested!

The third book in the Marshall Conners series is yet another page turner, and I found myself unable to stop reading all over again! Another well written book, Mr Schatz has delivered another 'perfect game' for all of us fans. From the detailed descriptions of the newer stadiums in MLB, to getting so personal with the characters, we are taken on yet another crazy incident involving Marshall Conners and the MLB hierarchy. This story will keep you guessing who are the ones in charge, and who is going to make it to the next inning! Another masterpiece! I am a fan for life! Well done, and keep 'em coming!
