By Stephen Frey
How do you tie a Forced Out professional NY Yankee scout with a very (extremely) talented minor league baseball player and a hit man for the mob into a very readable book? Beats me—that’s why I’m doing the review! But alas dear faithful readers, it’s all done here in this pretty good novel. The plot is loaded with many twists and turns that takes the reader closer and closer to understanding all these seemingly random facts/characters together. Not really a sports book, but sports are involved. Not really a who-done-it book, but one that has some mystery elements. Not really a wise guy book, but the mob is evolved. Sound confusing? I felt the same way. But I must say, it was a book worth reading for the novelty of the plot and the interesting characters involved. So, faithful reader(s) of my riveting reviews, this book may be something you want to pick up for a little winter entertainment.
To finalize this short review (if I may pass a little advice)—READ READ READ.
