Johnny Adcock is an aging Major League pitcher, who moonlights as a private investigator. Major League Baseball, as it turns out, is a prime source of employment for a discreet detective who has both the brains and the brawn to handle the unique problems of professional athletes. On the bus after a game, teammate Frankie Herrera confides in Adcock that he has a problem with his wife. It sounds like the standard story of a pro athlete s marriage gone sour. However, when Frankie dies in a car crash, Adcock knows there are way too many questions still unanswered, and he dives head first into the most dangerous investigation of his budding second career."
