Sacrifice Fly: A Mystery (Raymond Donne Mysteries, 1)
Raymond Donne wasnt always a schoolteacher. Not only did he patrol the streets of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, as one of New Yorks Finest, but being the nephew of the chief of detectives, he was expected to go on to bigger things. At least he was until the accident that destroyed his knees. Unable to do the job the way he wanted, he became a teacher in the same neighborhood, and did everything he could to put the force behind him and come to terms with the change.Then Frankie Rivas, a student in Rays class and a baseball phenom, stops showing up to school. With Frankie in danger of failing and missing out on a scholarship, Ray goes looking for him, only to find Frankies father bludgeoned to death in their apartment. Frankie and his younger sister are gone, possibly on the run. But did Frankie really kill his father? Ray cant believe it. But then who did, and where are Frankie and his sister? Ray doesnt know, but if hes going to have any chance of bringing them home safely, hes going to have to return to the life, the people, and the demons he walked out on all those years ago. Intense, authentic, and completely gripping, Tim OMaras Sacrifice Fly is an outstanding debut from a stellar new voice in crime fiction.
