72 Hours in Savannah by Jeff Stanger is the perfect pick-me-up I needed! A great short mystery that is sprinkled heavily with humor and fun characters! A murder by baseball trophy is a very unusual way to go but our hero needs to find the real killer to save his friend.
Fun short read!

I am amazed with this book!! Reason as to why is because the author has described me to a T! I am a baseball fanatic, I collect baseball cards, I just don't solve murders. But I would do anything for baseball treasure. For me this book was super fun for me to read. I absolutely LOVE this author. You can actually picture the story in your head!! Ok I am done fishing . I cannot wait to read more of his books. "Fun, FUN fun til my daddy took my baseball away". Beach boys parody lol

I got a free copy

Everyone has that one friend who can read a shopping list and make it fascinating. (Miss you Andrew; see you again one day, love.) And Jeff Stanger is that author. Whether he's talking about his daily life or baseball, he draws you in with his humour and creates that atmosphere which makes it impossible to pull away.

I mention baseball because I can't stand the subject and this is the theme of these mysteries. Playing baseball caused me to break out in hives each Spring during P.E. Stanger, howev

Good quick read (no pun intended) on baseball memorabilia dealer Jonathan Quick and his penchant for findings trouble. This shirt story takes place in Savanna and when a baseball trophy is found to have impaled the torso of a dead man, Quick is called and his investigation shows that about even bigger treasure in memorabilia is the source of the trouble. Written with humor and a touch of mystery, these Jonathan Quick mysteries are fun to read whether one is a baseball fan or a mystery fan.

Loved it

Great story, plenty of humour, plenty of action, plenty of baseball details. Just my sort of book. Read it, you won't be disappointed

The story is fast-paced and entertaining and I enjoyed it very much even though I’m not really a big baseball fan. I do like mysteries though and this one has several twists and surprises.

I don’t know if it’s the fault of my Kindle but I think the formatting needs work and a bit of editing for grammatical errors.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this ebook from the author and this is my honest and freely given opinion.

This was my first Quick short story and I liked the easy flow of the story. Entertaining with a sense of humor and a murder mystery to be solved around baseball in sweet (but no Twinkies in sight) Savannah, Georgia

Fun story for Minor League Baseball nerds

A nice story that goes quickly for mystery lovers and baseball fans. I also loved the Chaim Witz reference near the end and got a little thrill of recognition.

Baseball memorabilia dealer Jonathan Quick is asked to help his friend who has been accused of murder. It's an easy read even for someone like me who knows little about baseball. The plot develops well and is resolved logically. I liked the way that it ended. ...more

Amusing, above average short story but poorly edited. Obtained free copy from Story Origin promotion of “laugh with me” multi-genre giveaway.

Nice little read.

Nothing heavy. Just a pleasant way to spend time waiting for an appointment.

Would like to see more from this writer.

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
