Ok I have been telling anyone who will listen about the books I have been reading...currently 7th Inning Death by Allen Schatz. Game 7: Dead Ball was amazing and definitely left you wanting more. I am nearing the end of the 2nd in the series and I feel like I am reading something written by someone whose been on the NY Times Best Seller List for years. Then I realize this is only Mr. Schatz' Second Book and it amazes me. I bookmarked my spot and put it down because I REALLY want to enjoy the end of this GREAT Mystery Thriller. The Good Thing is I know there is one more Book in the series. Allen I hope you are at the computer working on something new ...I have found a new FAVORITE AUTHOR.
7th Innings Death is another great book! I haven't read this much in years! Allen Schatz absolutely causes you, the reader, to read this book until you finish it. I am not much of a reader, but Allen has brought me back to books. Great job Allen!
The theme of bipolar/depression made this story interesting. However, I am seriously getting bummed by all the potty mouthed characters when it just isn't necessary. Maybe I need to go back to the Hardy Boys to read a good mystery without overkill of foul language.
