Read full description of the books Murder at Ebbets Field:Second mystery outing for Mickey Rawlings. Now he's with the New York Giants and is hoping to play in the World Series. But being a utility player, he is asked to do numerous things just to stay part of the team. When a movie producer asks for a Giant player to be in his movie with starlet, Florence Hampton, Rawlings is picked, because being in a movie is not a good thing for a ball player.
After the glitzy after movie opening party, Florence is found necked and dead by the beach. The thing is, Florence hated the water. So was it an accident , suicide, or murder. Rawlings' newspaper friend from the first book, asks Mickey to find out what really happened to her. Since Rawlings did so well solving an earlier murder, he agreed. It also didn't hurt that another starlet encouraged Mickey and agreed to help him, because Florence was her best friend.
Lots of fun information kept me intrigued with this book, but there was perhaps a bit too much movie info for someone wanting a summer baseball read. But the mystery was great and I didn't know what happened until Mickey figured it out. Soos' books remind a bit of Agatha Christie's Poirot, in that the story takes many twists and turns, then the murderer is names with the complete explanation to follow at the end.
I am learning lots about the times with these baseball books, so I plan to continue with the series. I listened to this on audio which added to my enjoyment.
