Green Monster (EasyRead Edition)
After winning a second World Championship in four years, the Boston Red Sox have finally buried the Curse of the Bambino - maybe. Sox owner Louis Kenwood is shattered to receive an extortion demand - signed by ''Babe Ruth'' - claiming the 2004 World Series was fixed. If it all goes public, the franchise will suffer irreparable damage and Kenwood will lose his legacy as ''Lucky Louie.'' Fifty million dollars will keep this information from getting to the press and the Commissioner's office. Unsure where to turn, the Red Sox look to former Twin Cities cop Sam Skarda who is now taking private-eye work after solving a headline-making case at The Masters. Skarda's brief: find out if the story of the fix is true and who is behind the plot. Kenwood insists that his executive assistant Heather Canby, a beautiful young Harvard Business School grad, stay glued to Skarda's side. But the situation soon turns deadly. Everyone in the mix has an agenda. Skarda and Canby must piece together an international plot before lives are lost and scandal destroys the Red Sox Nation.
