SPRING TRAINING MURDERS:

NOIR PRIVATE EYE JOHNNY DARK IS BACK, THIS

TIME WITH MURDER AND MAYHEM ON HIS MIND.



Spring Training Murders is a hard-hitting, fast-paced, murder and mayhem thriller, designed for sport’s enthusiasts and for all mystery buffs. Each base-clearing chapter leads off with a few authentic newspaper headlines from 1946, while young private eye Johnny Dark is placed undercover on a pennant-winning baseball club. His assignment: Find the killer!

World War II is just concluded and the GI’s have come marching home to a new and expanding USA. Dark must look the part of a major league player on and off the ball fi eld, in dugouts rubbing elbows with the likes of future Hall of Fame, Ted Williams, Joe Di Maggio, and Bobby Doerr--he even rubs elbows with an aging Babe Ruth, who helps in the investigation. Can Dark fool the fans, the players, the sportswriters, and, at the same time, solve an inhumane murder? Mixed with love, hate, thrills, and chills--this pulse-quickening spring tale will bring the reader back to simpler times. No I-phones, no TV, no Texting: just lots of everything else that can be touched. Start your reading at home plate for a guaranteed home run--and more.

About the Author

Roland (Rolly) Hopkins is a successful newspaper publisher whose background (way back) included Lay preaching, and he came very close to becoming a full-time minister. Instead, he spent five years as a radio disc jockey, successfully feeding and clothing a wife and three children. Fun, fun, fun. Much more fun than publishing a deadlined weekly newspaper. He also dabbled in professional horse racing, winning (as an owner) over 300 races and having a horse nominated for the Kentucky Derby (the dream of every owner, breeder, and trainer). More fun, fun, fun, but no profit. profit, profit. Rolly's real passion was and is writing fiction, and this book is his latest attempt at new fun.
