Mandy Walkden-Brown
Enjoyable mystery with some great whacky characters. Baseball memorabilia tracker-downer is called in to investigate the death of one of the Fungo Society's members.

Stanger is a writer to watch for.

The writing is decent and the characters are funny at times but somehow this book didn’t hold my interest. Maybe this genre is not my type but this is definitely just a “one time” read for me. This book might grab the interest of readers who love baseball and baseball players. But somehow,

You don't often come across a book that combines baseball and baseball memorabilia in a mystery that basically borrows from traditional private detective pulp narratives. This is a light-hearted, decidedly male dominated story about a dead player's old jersey. You'll roll your eyes a few times, or maybe more than a few, but the plot moves along nicely. ...more

Jeff Stanger writes funny novels that usually have the game of baseball as a backdrop. You don't have to be a student of the game or even a fan to enjoy them, however. There is enough mystery, danger, and even romance to keep you on the edge of your seat. His current work includes the Quick Baseball Mystery Series which follows the exploits of a rare baseball memorabilia dealer who always seems to ...more
