About this Item

[8], 308, [4] pages. Signed by author sticker on front cover. Signed on title page. John Feinstein (born July 28, 1956) is an American sportswriter, author and sports commentator. Feinstein has also written a sports-mystery series for young adults in which main characters Stevie Thomas and Susan Carol Anderson are reporting on major sporting events including the Final Four, US Open (tennis), Super Bowl, World Series, the Army-Navy Game, and the Summer Olympics. These are just a few. He currently has 36 books written. New York Times bestselling sportswriter John Feinstein takes readers behind the scenes at the World Series in this exciting baseball mystery. When teen sports reporters Stevie and Susan Carol are sent to cover the World Series, the talk of the tournament is Norbert Doyle--a late call-up for an underdog team. But the more they learn about him, the more conflicting stories they hear. Bit by bit they piece together the shocking truth about this rising star, but once the secret's out, there's no going back. From a review posted on-line: Stevie and Susan Carol have front-row seats for a hard-fought series in which the Washington Nationals square off against the mighty Red Sox, and Nationals pitcher Norbert Doyle, a career minor leaguer, earns a last-minute spot in the starting rotation. The reporters' suspicions are kindled when details in Doyle's tearful tale of his wife's death years before don't jibe with facts learned elsewhere. What's he hiding and is it a story that should be told? As before, sportswriter Feinstein fills the supporting cast with actual athletes, journalists, and sports executives and offers behind-the-scenes details of big-time sports. Stevie and Susan Carol are hardly even two-dimensional teenagers, but the decision they wrestle with as the truth comes out, plus healthy measures of exciting sports action, will keep readers involved.
