Praise for Green Monster... 'Skarda is a likable rogue mined from the same vein as Bill Tapply's Brady Coyne or Ed Gorman's Sam McCain.' -Booklist After winning a second World Championship in four years, 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. Skarda's brief: find out if the story of the fix is true and who is behind the plot. Kenwood insists his executive assistant Heather Canby, a beautiful young Harvard Business School grad, stay glued to Skarda's side. But the situation soon turns deadly. Skarda and Canby now must piece together an international plot before lives are lost and scandal destroys the Red Sox Nation. Rick Shefchik was born in Minnesota where he still lives with his family. After graduation from Dartmouth College, he worked in public relations and as a full-time musician before beginning his journalism career at the Duluth News Tribune. He was a TV critic, feature writer and columnist for the St. Paul Pioneer Press, and wrote a syndicated parenting column for the Knight Ridder Newswire. Green Monster is his second Sam Skarda mystery, following Amen Corner. www.rickshefchik.com
