This is my first reading of this author, and the reason I tried this book was the attraction of humour enrobing crime in the world of sports memorabilia. After the season we had with the Chicago Cubs (not to mention the Sox) I thought this one sounded likely to provide a smile or two.
It has many outrageous characters, extreme situations for our man Quick and some gnarly criminals and what they are willing to do to pass off forgeries for big money.
I did not read the first Quick book but I figure

"Tangled in the Web" by Jeff Stanger will appeal to art, memorabilia and ardent baseball fans. This book is a mix of mystery and humour and is narrated through Quick who is full of wit and charm, and I was drawn to him right from the start. The writing ability of Jeff to introduce significant events or concepts of Baseball throughout the story was well done. The supporting characters such as Simone, Emily Tarantola, Donnie Duluth, Zeus and Victor Simmons to mention a few were memorable, and thei ...more

I recently found a giant album of approximately 500 rookie baseball cards from the 1990's. Ah ha, I thought, they must be worth something. A few were. Most were available on Amazon from 1 to 99 cents.
But sometimes, especially if they're old, baseball cards and other memorabilia can be worth a fortune. Just ask O.J. who got away with murder, by not with stealing sports memorabilia. People take this stuff seriously.
Now, add a dealer who just had his store burnt down, a reputation to uphold despit

I was given a review sample of the book. 'Tangled In The Web' in return for an honest review. Jeff Stanger has written another hit (triple? no, home run!). The novel grabs you from the first page with the opening line, "This story includes recreational dentistry, family feuds and unusual tattoos (some sexy, some frightening).". What? Tell me more, please! The baseball theme, catchy dialog and some unexpected and funny situations added to the adventure and left me eager for "extra innings", but m ...more

This is the second in the series but I did not read the first one yet. No matter. This book is absolutely hilarious and compelling, disturbing and fun-filled. No matter what, you just have to love Quick!

I learned things about baseball that my husband, the expert, didn’t even know! Quick is a funny character, even when he’s getting beat to a pulp. He just doesn’t know how to keep his mouth shut. But he does have a good sense of humor about all of it. I’m looking forward to the next book and learning more about baseball!

This is a well written and amusing story, but I prefer main characters that try to do smart things and not letting themselves get beat up.

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
