I was bawling in the nail salon this afternoon. This was the best book I've read in a long time!

Laura I haven't read a Grisham book in years and I'm really not in to baseball. However, the free sample made the book seem like a winner and it's gotten great reviews.

Would you enjoy a novel that imagines what would happen to a MLB rookie pitcher who throws a fatal bean ball at the behest of his manager? If so, A PITCH FOR JUSTICE an e-book examines the national debate that arises over the inherent risks of baseball and the unwritten code of the game versus society’s interest in the rule of law. You be the juror in this criminal investigation and prosecution for homicide. Please also read the review by Tampa Tribune sports writer Robert D’Angelo.
