Gordon ( The Dead Pull Hitter ) scores another grand slam with her second exhilarating tale to feature 40-year-old Canadian sports columnist Kate Henry. Kate's significant other, staff sergeant Andy Munro of Toronto homicide, is investigating the sex slayings of two preteen boys while Kate covers the Titan baseball team's first season in its new stadium. When a third child is killed, Andy, the divorced father of two sons, becomes obsessed with the case. Kate is torn between being supportive of Andy and doing her job, especially after the Titan left fielder, Joe Kelsey, tells her that he is gay and wants her to break the story. Then she begins receiving messages from the murderer, who taunts Andy for failing to catch him and warns of the next death. When the 11-year-old son of Kate's downstairs tenant is threatened, Kate, Joe and his lover run to the boy's rescue. Kate's biting wit makes her one of the most captivating new women in mystery fiction. (May)
