DIRTY WATER: A RED SOX MYSTERY...Penned by Mary-Ann Tirone Smith and Jere Smith...A Preview And The Pre-Order Link
Jere Smith, who writes the blog A RED SOX FAN IN PINSTRIPE TERRITORY (on my link list, near the top), and his talented mom, Mary-Ann Tirone Smith, have collaborated on a Red Sox mystery book, soon to be released. Very soon! Here are my thoughts on the book...
First of all, there will be no spoilers here. The mystery unravels at its own pace, twisting and turning and taking hold of you like the great ones do. The ingredients? A baby is left in the Red Sox clubhouse and is soon discovered and bestowed with the name "Ted Williams." Add to that the discovery of a body, a quite dead young woman, mired in the muck of the river's edge. Add to that a sudden vanishing act by a young and talented Red Sox minor league pitcher. Who is the dead woman, where did the baby come from and what's with the young phenom pitcher? All will be answered with the help of two Boston detectives...Rocky Patel and Marty Flanagan, the "good guys" in this spider web of intrigue, and Jay, who writes a blog by the name of THE NUMBER ONE PLACE. Jere Smith handles the blog parts of the story and his accomplished mother handles the narrative. The combination clicks! Blogger (and his friends-I even saw a commenter named Peter!) and the detectives combine to keep you up way into the dark of night. This is not just a book for Boston Red Sox fans, it's for everyone who loves a good mystery yarn. Well done, Mary-Ann and Jere!
Click on the title of this post to be directed to Jere's blog. On the right side of the blog screen, you'll find the links for the DIRTY WATER blog site and for the Amazon pre-order page. The book will be released by the end of September (I think), so give Jere's blog a look and check out the Amazon info. It's all there when you title click. Thanks! DIRTY WATER: A RED SOX MYSTERY...you won't forget it.
