The Cincinnati Red Stalkings (Mickey Rawlings Series #5)by Troy Soos
The lazy days of June, 1921, are dark ones for baseball fans as the trial of the Chicago "Black Sox" players accused of throwing the 1919 World Series begins. But utility infielder Mickey Rawlings thinks he has something to cheer about--playing for the team that won that series, the Cincinnati Reds. Until he gets embroiled in a mix of conspiracy, lies, and murder that could end his career--and his life.

I must say that this book was a fine baseball/mystery work. I enjoyed it thoroughly and highly reccomend it. It puts basebal and mystery in perfect balance to create a very interesting plot and climax.
