    • I liked the story and even though I didn't recognize half the player names that were tossed around (and I assume most are real people as I did recognized some names) it was still fun to get to read a story set in a legendary ballpark. There was something about the book though that made it kind of hard to read, something in the way it was written but if you enjoy baseball you'll probably enjoy this book.


    • Written in the style of Raymond Chandler or old time mystery writers. A quick read, but not a great read.Fun for Cub fans. Assumes a lot of knowledge about the Cubs


    • A mystery, set in/around Wrigley Field and the Chicago Cubs, narrated by a reporter. It's like my own personal trifecta in the book world. Stopped short of giving it 5 stars because I recognize the things that struck me the most will not be universally appealing.


    • Lots of great Chicago-isms in this fun murder mystery read. Bit characters named after old time Cub greats, Old Style beer, and tough old reporters populate the plot. Crabbe Evers is actually a pseudonym for the two men who wrote the book. Fun.


    • Entertaining murder mystery set in the friendly confines. I liked this book mostly because it surrounded the Cubs and Wrigley Field. If it were in a different setting, I probably would have lost interest. Good book for Cubs fans!
