Even prison couldn’t stop former big-league pitcher Doc Miller from playing baseball. Jailed after a teenage girl overdosed on cocaine at one of his house parties, the former Detroit Tigers ace became a star at the Michigan State Prison, bringing home the institution’s first Midwestern Penal System championship. Now out on parole, his days of ballpark heroics are over for good. Miller’s brother gets him a job selling tractor parts for John Deere, work Doc finds even duller than life in the joint.

While moonlighting as a cab driver, he meets a bail bondsman who offers work as a bounty hunter. On their first job together, they find their target savagely murdered. His name was Ambrose X. Dryce, formerly Wilson McCoy, a Black Panther turned drug lord. Sucked back into the criminal underworld, Doc will need to make his best plays to stay alive without violating his parole.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A superb thriller…As in the earlier Detroit books, the climax here is violent, the denouement cynical.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • Corner is set in the present day, during an uneasy experiment in minority rule…Estleman has saved his warmest, funniest writing for this third in the series. The dialogue is a staccato treat, and the hoodlums are sketched in the best Elmore Leonard manner. Ance alone is quite unforgettable—part saint, part sleaze.”


  • “A paroled felon takes a walk on the wild side of the law in this…mystery-thriller boasting a likable lead, nice baseball metaphors, and a boldly chilling portrait of Coleman A. Young as a devil incarnate.”

    Kirkus Reviews
