By Dave Zeltserman

Overlook Press, 9781468300673, 240pp.

Publication Date: September 4, 2012



Dave Zeltserman's grisly crime novel is backgrounded by the 2004 ALCS playoffs, when the Red Sox triumphed over the Yankees. A knuckle-whitening, surprising, and compelling trip into Stan's obsession with a brutal case, this serial-killer mystery is Zeltserman's darkest, most gripping work yet.
