MURDER IS MY RACQUET Fourteen Original Tales of Love, Death, and Tennis by Today's Great Writers

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dan John Miller

Mystery & Suspense • 10 hrs. • Anthology • © 2005

Penzler, the Czar of Crime Fiction, assembles 14 stories of jealousy, justice, and intrigue in and around the tennis courts. Dan John Miller shows a clean backhand as with skillful vocal fluidity he takes listeners from the grass courts of Wimbledon to the clay courts of Florida. The stories in this anthology are surprisingly deep and poignant, and Miller’s sincere tone drives them home. Otto Penzler’s clever introduction is followed by Lawrence Block’s “Terrible Tommy Terhune,” which looks at the fate of a temperamental tennis star. “A Debt to the Devil,” by Jeremiah Healy, investigates the death of a Florida senior who lives in a tennis-centered retirement village. Stephen Hunter’s story, “Stephen Longacre’s Greatest Match,” follows a troubled young white man who pushes the color barrier in the American South of the 1940s. Eleven other stories of the “sport of gentlemen” fill out this anthology. S.E.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2011]
