Description

Relief pitcher/private investigator Johnny Adcock doesn't have an office; he has the bullpen. That's where he meets Tiff Tate, the femme-fatale stylist responsible for half the looks in Major League Baseball, from Brian Wilson's beard to Big Papi's gold ropes. Tiff has a problem. Her new client, the rookie phenom Yonel Ruiz, has been threatened by a cartel of smugglers. Adcock is her last best hope. As he embarks on this potentially deadly mission, Adcock tangoes with a mysterious, sexy assassin known only as La Loba. And he still has the playoffs to worry about.

Praise For Double Switch: A Novel (Johnny Adcock Series #2)

“Monday’s Double Switch is a rocket ride of a sports mystery with a wicked curve ball on every smoothly written page. May Johnny Adcock’s careers as a relief pitcher and sleuth motor on for a very long time." 
--David Baldacci, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Guilty
 
"Rollicking good fun for anyone who loves baseball and mysteries, T.T. Monday takes you inside a modern-day baseball clubhouse and imagines a world in which a left-handed bullpen specialist moonlights as a real-world fixer." 
--Molly Knight, New York Times bestselling author of The Best Team Money Can Buy

"Double Switch is a fast-paced, crisply written mystery novel...that balances baseball against underworld vices like sex, drugs, violence, human trafficking — and oh yeah, several dead bodies....Monday’s prose is witty and sharp, and he packs a lot into the plot, which moves briskly to a tidy conclusion."
--The Tampa Tribune

"Monday is at ease in moving among crime, baseball, and romance. The book gains authenticity from its references to real-life figures and situations. And the first-person narrator makes for good company. Monday's second effort, following The Setup Man (2014), is an enjoyable, easygoing sequel that shows off the author's skill at seamlessly mixing genres."
--Kirkus

"Monday (a pseudonym for novelist Nick Taylor) knows his baseball well, creates a mystery out of the very real exploitation of Cuban baseball defectors, and hasan ear for dialogue. Good enough that readers who missed the first Adcock mystery (The Setup Man, 2014) will be eager to catch up."
--Booklist

"Monday handles the baseball action flawlessly with this timely look at the influx of Cuban ballplayers and those eager to take advantage of them."
--Publishers Weekly
