Everybody loves a winner, and the Rabbs are major league. Marty is the Red Sox star pitcher, Linda the loving wife. She loves everyone except the blackmailer out to wreck her life.

Is Marty throwing fast balls or throwing games? It doesn't take long for Spenser to link Marty's performance with Linda's past...or to find himself trapped between a crazed racketeer and an enforcer toting an M-16.

America's favorite pastime has suddenly become a very dangerous sport, and one wrong move means strike three, with Spenser out for good!

Typical Spencer. Enjoyable

I always enjoy the Spenser stories. My only complaint would be the absence of Hawk in this one.

Something about the smartass detective quietly mulling over his lonely life in between mouthing off to gangsters and tough guys, drinking prodigiously, casually dating two gorgeous and liberated 70s women, and listing off the results of his epicurean tastes for meals and his hip, fashionable love of flared pants and ankle boots has completely won me over to this series.
