About this title


Former sports reporter Jimmy Drover investigates the possible gambling problems of Homer White, a slugger for the Chicago Cubs suffering from leg injuries and a career that has gone into a tailspin.

From Booklist:

Reformed womanizer Homer White, an aging, rehabbing slugger for the Chicago Cubs, has fallen in love with his physical therapist. Homer wants to be traded to an American League team so he can save his bad legs some wear and tear by becoming a designated hitter. But the trade isn't happening, maybe because the Cubs' general manager has a grudge against Homer, maybe because an American League owner lives with Homer's ex-wife, and maybe because someone is circulating betting slips with Homer's name on them. Ex-sportswriter Jimmy Drover, who ekes out a living writing sports books and running errands for a Vegas bookmaker, is drawn into the matter to verify the gambling rumors; if Homer is dirty, Vegas wants to know. Sensing a kinship with the struggling player, Drover presses on to the point where his own life is in danger. This third Drover novel finds Granger--the author of the November Man espionage series--hitting his stride. Drover has become a multidimensional character, and the book's ambience is superb. There is absolutely no one writing today who captures Chicago better than Bill Granger. Wes Lukowsky
