Suicide Squeeze

Suicide Squeeze

(1991)
(The sixth book in the Robert Miles Mystery series)
A novel by

 
Robert Miles's baseball career is barely a footnote in the annals of America's pastime, but as an Illinois P.I., he's a heavy hitter. That's why he finds himself in the starting line-up of a baseball fantasy camp "dream" game at Wrigley Field. Blackballed major leaguer Dewey Farmer is quietly trying to make a comeback with the Chicago Cubs -- but he's been warned that if he pitches, he'll catch a bullet.
Miles is none too pleased to be baby-sitting a bum like Farmer, especially when the Illinois House Speaker has him chasing down the son of a political rival involved in vehicular manslaughter. What does hitting home runs have to do with a case of hit-and-run? Maybe plenty. Enough, at least, to make the infamous Cubs-Mets "black cat" game of '69 look like Little League, as Miles steps up to bat against crime and corruption with the bases, and a sniper's gun, loaded . . . .
"Witty . . . Entertaining." -- Publishers Weekly
