1st ed. Fine in dust jacket. SIGNED COPY. Kate Henry returns to her roots in small-town Saskatchewan - but what is meant to be a nostalgic weekend celebrating baseball history turns into an investigation of a surprising and brutal murder. N° de ref. de la librería
Sinopsis: It is glorious August in Saskatchewan, and baseball writer Kate Henry is on a road trip home. Accompanied by her partner, homicide detective Andy Munro, she is keen to show him the wide-open spaces of the prairie and the charms of her family home in Indian Head.
In the 1940s, Kate?s mother played for the Racine Belles, in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Now, twenty veterans of the league are gathering for a reunion in the Battlefords, for induction into the Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame.
But all is not peaceful under the prairie sky. Anonymous letters have been received by her mother?s teammates, warning them to stay away from the event. The sinister meaning soon becomes clear. One of the Belles is found murdered.
Kate valiantly tries not to interfere in the police investigation which ensues but, as she talks to former team members, she finds that questions from the past demand answers. It is only when Kate finds herself in mortal danger that she realizes she?s come too close to the truth.
In Prairie Hardball, one of Canada?s craftiest mystery writers combines a nostalgic look at baseball and a vivid evocation of Saskatchewan with a fast-moving, richly textured plot as, once again, Kate Henry?s own instincts and wit play off against conventional police wisdom.
