Award-winning author and national award-winning journalist R.J. Patterson returns with an exciting story into the world of professional baseball in the United States and Cuba with this Cal Murphy mystery thriller.
Cuban baseball star Vicente Prado always recognized he had a bright future in his sport, even if his coaches didn't. All he needed was a chance. But just before he stole away on a boat for a chance to play in the Major Leagues in the United States, he saw something - something that would haunt him far more than he ever imagined.
When Prado meets Seattle-based reporter Cal Murphy, their lives are thrust together on a journey of survival but also a quest to unmask the truth and live to tell about it. Compelled by his conscience and journalistic instincts, Cal must find out if Prado really saw what he says he saw - and expose a lurking killer in the process.
