Troy Soos’ entertaining whodunit hits a home run with a perfect blend of mayhem and early baseball lore! He takes you back to 1912 where the days are full of sunshine, players use homemade wooden bats, the legendary Ty Cobb captivates fans, and a young rookie stumbles into a web of danger and deceit. Reporting for his first day as a Boston Red Sox player, Mickey Rawlings discovers a faceless body in the empty stadium. When police name him as their suspect, he knows he must clear his name or give up baseball and his freedom. But nameless foes are trying to silence him with warnings that become increasingly dangerous.

A member of the Society for American Baseball Research, Troy Soos creates delightfully authentic ballplayers and places them in believable, colorful settings. With Johnny Heller’s expressive narration, Murder at Fenway Park becomes exciting for baseball fans and all who enjoy a good mystery.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Twigsy | 5/7/2016

    " I’m a latecomer as a baseball fan, and I love history. This book blends both together. Set in 1912 as Fenway Park opened for the first time, this book provides more than just baseball history, but Boston history. Who knew that in the Seaport District of Boston there used to be the Boston Braves field? The mystery isn’t complicated like some of the great mystery writers, but seen through the eyes of a young ballplayer. He fumbles around and puzzles things out on his own time in his own way. "

    " This book was awesome. I learned a lot of baseball history and Boston history I had never even heard before. As a fairly new baseball fan, I look forward to the rest of the books in this series teaching me baseball history from around the country. Johnny Heller is the perfect narrator for the series. "

    " I'm not much for the whodunit, but I'd read more of these Mickey Rawlins books just for the baseball. Good clean fun, sharpened spikes and all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charly | 11/13/2012

    " As a mystery it wasn't overwhelming, but when you add in the baseball history it goes up a star. entertaining and relatively fast moving piece. Based in part at Fenway in its first season a great deal of the legend and lore of the stadium and the era are brought out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johnny Heller | 7/1/2012

    " Not the best murder mystery ever written, but an enjoyable read nonetheless. If you're not a baseball fan, you may want to pass. As for me, I'll probably read other books in the series but am in no rush to do so "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 5/31/2011

    " Well this book confirmed for me what I already knew; I do not like baseball. I found most of the book so enriched with baseball information that I was bored and found it difficult to swallow. I am proud of veering into new territory, but don't plan on doing it again soon (in this direction). "
