Mike Reuther about this book: Cozzy Crager is a down-and-out detective trying to solve the murder of a minor league baseball player. Crager is fighting his own demons as he goes about the task of separating the good guys and gals from the bad ones in a dying Pennsylvania town. The question is: Who killed Lance Miller, the ballplayer and hometown hero who had just received the call to join the Major League team when he's found murdered in a hotel room?
There were women in his past, including the wife of the owner of the minor league ball club. There's also Mick, the downtown gym owner who Crager suspects of supplying Lance with steroids to help revive his baseball career and even the police chief who seems to have something to hide. Plenty of other questionable characters who are part of the story will keep readers guessing. Anyone who likes a fast-paced mystery or thriller with its share of action and humor will have a good time reading "Return to Dead City."
