it was amazing

I really enjoyed this novel. It does a wonderful job of capturing a little bit of New York history in a real page-turner of a plot, with a great mix of characters who are written in such a way that their personalities have depth and you really feel interested and invested in everything they are going to do. If one wanted a guide for how this reads, then I think this does have a real similarity to a Dick Francis type novel. Something where the plot moves along with some really interesting trips and turns that keep you wondering how it's all going to turn out, and which has characters that you can identify with and invest personal feeling upon - all wrapping you up in the script delightfully. And ultimately, I'd highly recommend this as an excellent novel for anyone who likes some drama with a hint of mystery. It's also a really interesting window into some of the features of baseball in the early 1900s - presented in a captivating way even if you are not familiar with the sport.
