Screwball

(2003)
A novel by

 
 
Could the curse of the Bambino be over? For too many miserable seasons, the Boston Red Sox have endured nothing but defeat and heartbreak.

Finally, there is hope in the sensational Ron Kane, a strapping rookie pitcher whose fastball scorches the radar gun at an ungodly 110 miles per hour. He can also handle the bat. And play the outfield. With Kane dazzling sellout crowds, the Red Sox are suddenly a juggernaut.

The only fly in the ointment is the fact that murder seems to be stalking the club. Wherever the Sox play, a killer strikes, marking his victims with strange ritualistic symbols. Is a fan responsible for the carnage as he follows the team from town to town? Or could it be that the madman wears a Red Sox uniform? Screwball is not just a savage morality tale; it is a hard-hitting, laugh-out-loud look at the greatest battle in modern-day sports: the struggle for sanity.

    

"This book sneaks up on America, where winning is everything, and bites it on the seat of the pants. It is dark satire at its best." - Michael Connelly
