Kill the Umpire

(2003)
The Calls of Ed Gorgon
A novel by

 
ONE . . . TWO . . . THREE STRIKES . . . YOU'RE DEAD . . . (At the Old Ball Game) For more than 30 years, Jon L. Breen has been quietly creating the finest series of sports mysteries in the history of fictional detecting - classical puzzlers featuring major league umpire, Ed Gorgon, as the amateur sleuth. When a body is found in a bullpen or when a ballplayer impossibly disappears between the ballpark and the showers or when a dying message filled with baseball lingo needs to be interpreted, Ed Gorgon is as effective at solving crimes as he is at calling a ballgame. Kill the Umpire contains 16 cases for the "Horsehide Sleuth," including one written especially for this collection. Jon L. Breen is the mystery critic for Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, and twice winner of the coveted Edgar from the Mystery Writers of America. New introduction and prefaces to each story by the author, and a checklist of Jon L. Breen's mystery novels and stories. Cover painting by Gail Cross.
