Murder at Ebbets Field

Troy Soos, Author Zebra $16.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-8217-4889-3
August 1914. WWI has just started in Europe, the Miracle Boston Braves are hot on the trail of the first-place New York Giants, and Giants' utility infielder Mickey Rawlings is about to pick up where we last left him in Murder at Fenway Park. When the Giants journey to Brooklyn's brand new Ebbets Field to play their arch rivals, the Dodgers, Rawlings is asked to make a baseball movie with the matinee idol of the day, Florence Hampton. After the filming, he joins the movie company at a party in Coney Island, where, next morning, he finds Hampton's lifeless body under a pier. Rawlings, asked to investigate, learns that Hampton was poisoned with arsenic--just as her husband had been a few months before. When the Dodger's batboy is poisoned, Rawlings wonders who's next, and why. With the help of a Brooklyn outfielder by the name of Casey Stengel, and with cameos by John McGraw and Christy Mathewson, Soos offers another breezy read full of the flavor of the times. (Apr.)
