Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

The star pitcher of a Negro league team is lynched. Mickey Rawlings, utility infielder for the St. Louis Browns and the main character of several mysteries in this series, starts looking for answers in this tale that evokes mid-America in 1923. Is the murder really the work of the KKK, or are there other evil forces at work? Johnny Heller's high, reedy voice seems well suited for this first-person narrative. He skillfully uses his voice to show the emotions of the characters, particularly Mickey's. Heller changes voices enough to distinguish characters, without overdoing any of the dialects.
