(From the publisher):
Famous for its yearly Elizabethan Festival and annual Arabian Horseshow, Empty Creek, Arizona, would truly be nowhere without a visit from a semi-professional baseball team. Barely out of the dugout, trying to break a hot losing streak, the Coyotes are hoping to star in the minor leagues. But before the first note of the National Anthem is sung, someone uses the owner's head for a baseball and scores a deadly hit.
With the help of her Abyssinian cat "Big Mike," Penelope Warren sets out to solve the gruesome murder. Management squabbles, money troubles, marital mayhem, and an ex-major leaguer struggling to make a comeback don't make it any easier to understand why the murder weapon bears a very small set of fingerprints; what the strange file found in the team office means; or whether the victim has been concealing a secret lover. With a full team of suspects - enough to fill a ballpark - Penelope and Mycroft soon find themselves threatened by a clever killer ready to risk the whole game to get away with murder and steal home.
