The Setup Man by T.T. Monday

The Setup Man by T.T. Monday - 262 pages

Johnny Adcock is an aging relief pitcher with a side job as a private detective for his fellow major league baseball players with sensitive problems.  This premise sounds bizarre but it works and the noir tone elevates the story to a higher level.  The world is fully fleshed out and the characters have depth from the moment you meet them.  As a baseball fan, I truly enjoyed this diversion from the traditional detective format with its look behind the scenes into that elite world.  Just a note - there is heavy violence in this book so it is by no means a "cozy" mystery.
