Fans are cheering Troy Soos for his absorbing mysteries packed with old-time baseball lore. In The Cincinnati Red Stalkings, he whisks you back to the summer of 1921 when life was simpler and the world was a safer place—or was it?

Utility infielder Mickey Rawlings is thrilled to be playing for the wildly popular Cincinnati Reds. But when he helps set up an exhibit honoring the Red Stockings, he accidently uncovers long-forgotten misdeeds. Suddenly he finds himself drawn into a widespread gambling scandal and implicated in a present-day murder.

A member of the Society for American Baseball Research, Troy Soos crafts authentic settings and realistic characters. Narrator Johnny Heller’s sparkling narration brings Mickey Rawlings colorfully to life as he rubs elbows with great players from the past. For other sporting whodunits, try: Murder at Fenway Park and Hunting a Detroit Tiger.

Quotes & Awards

  • A perfect marriage between baseball and mystery fiction… the Mickey Rawlings mysteries are among my favorite crime fiction discoveries in recent years. Mystery Readers Journals 
  • “The entries in the Mickey Rawlings series could almost be classified as cozies directed at baseball fans. Mix in great 1920s period detail and a likable, carefully presented first-person narrator in Rawlings for a series that has modest goals and meets them with style.”

    " This was a book that I'd forgotten about for years until I found it sitting on my bookshelf the other day. Soos does an amazing job of bringing 1920s baseball back to life. This is not just an excellent murder mystery, but a great look at Cincinnati and baseball right after the Black Sox Scandal. "
