The first sequel to Game 7:Dead Ball... Marshall and Thomas are back!

Sometimes, bad things happen to good people. Sometimes, good people do bad things. And sometimes, people are just plain bad...

Major League Baseball umpire Marshall Connors is trying to regroup and get his life back to something resembling normal. After surviving the wrath of a psychotic revenge-hungry killer during the most recent World Series, Marshall wants nothing more than a return to the relative obscurity of his profession, and the simplicity of the game he loves, all while nurturing a new relationship.

Former FBI agent John King isn’t really a bad person, but a few loose wires make him seem that way. He, too, is looking for normalcy, but disgraced and fired by the FBI, King must battle through a horde of personal demons to get there. A new job gives him hope, but the struggles grow when King discovers another monster, one more vicious and dangerous than those in his head.

Before the walls of his world collapse completely, King makes a last desperate attempt for salvation, leading him once again into Marshall's life. The collision leaves the umpire in the middle of another game he would rather not play.

With the help of his best friend, Thomas Hillsborough--ex-CIA spy--Marshall can only hope a solution arrives in time.

"I feel like I am reading something written by someone whose been on the NY Times Best Seller List for years. Then I realize this is only Mr. Schatz' second book and it amazes me. This is a GREAT Mystery Thriller... I have found a new FAVORITE AUTHOR." ~ Amazon reader review

"If you liked the first book you will love this one! It takes you more in depth into the charactor's lives and relationships... Baseball is more in the background in this book. I liked how you were subtly reminded of what happened in the first and the way it's done, this could be a stand alone book, too... Written like a pro and a enjoyable read!" ~ Amazon reader review

"Wow... Mr. Schatz again takes us on a whirlwind ride, involving failiar faces still trying to recover from the bedlam of the World Series. He doesn't suffer from any let down, as this book is just as fun and fast paced as the first one! A page turner, I was unable to put it down!" ~ Barnes & Noble reader review
