About this title


New York sophisticates and newlyweds Thomas and Sandy Curry investigate the murder of an acquaintance found dead after a Mets game in a mystery set during the Kennedy era

From Kirkus Reviews:

Insouciant lawyer Thomas Andrew Curry and sharp-tongued Sandrine Cadette, who debuted in Badger Game (1989), have gotten married and more than a little muffled in this sequel, again set in a nostalgic 1962 and narrated by legal paterfamilias Theodore Furst, who tells (even though he wasn't there) how Thomas and Sandy's new friend, wheeler-dealer Jerry Fielder, was fatally stabbed during a Mets game shortly after Thomas and Sandy left him in a press box with no less than six live suspects--including his jealous wife, a shady labor lawyer, and a young basketball prospect ruined by allegations of cheating. It's obvious that the case hinges on a phony alibi and a scorecard assiduously kept by (later stolen from) Sandy, but except for a nice fistfight between Thomas and the basketball prospect, there's not much to watch while you wait for the characters to figure this out. Lacking the wit and inventiveness of last year's Washington Deceased, this entry throws Bowen's generally forgivable flaws-- thinness, implausibility, infatuation with characters and milieu--into merciless relief. Wait till next year. -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
