Overview

It is the summer of 2007, a couple of hours before the start of a Red Sox doubleheader. As the players congregate in the Fenway clubhouse, they hear an odd, compelling sound coming from the direction of the interview room. Turns out, someone got there before. Jason Varitek opens the door and finds an abandoned baby.
The infant is rushed to Deaconess Medical Center where the nurses name him Baby Ted Williams, what else?
Within a few days, a minor league pitcher from the Dominican with an unhittable fastball and pinpoint control goes missing. His agent is being blackmailed; so what is it about the player that no one should know? Then the body of a young woman who lives in the shadow of Fenway Park turns up in the Back Bay fens. She has recently given birth.
Enter Rocky Patel, Boston Homicide Detective First Grade, ordered to connect the dots. Joining him out of left field, an anonymous Red Sox blogger who knows more than he should. His alarming blog posts and the ensuing "comments" force the investigation into a dizzying race against time.
DIRTY WATER lays bare a shocking revelation about major league baseball that manifests itself in deadly greed where money reigns and corrupts, and where innocent bystanders--the 2007 World Champion Red Sox--must rise to the heroics and strength they demonstrate on the playing field.
The story will hold you spellbound and will stay with you long after you reach the shattering conclusion. And if you're a Sox fan you'll love returning to the team that showed everyone the Sox could do it again!
