Summary
Nominated for an Edgar Allan Poe Award in the year it was published, the reputation of this novel has only increased over the years, and it is now regarded by many as one of the best sports mysteries ever written, and one of the best books about baseball. It tells the story of Frank Lofton, an itinerant reporter obsessed with a minor league team in a Massachusetts mill town. The town is plagued by arson, and with the burning city as a backdrop, Lofton follows his obsession, leading him from the mysterious death of a struggling ballplayer, to the owner's beautiful mistress, into an underworld of corruption and deceit
Summary
Having fled his wife and life in Denver to avoid the results of a medical diagnosis, Frank Lofton becomes a sportswriter in Holyoke, Massachusetts, where he follows the fortunes of a minor-league baseball team and gets wind of an arson scam
