deadreviewPRAISE for Dead Ball
“The language crackles quick and sharp, full of hard-boiled one-liners, and there is some oddly beautiful writing about the game of baseball. The ugly and graphic history of lynching is a strong plot point, and the final denouement is both shocking and bloody.”
-Booklist

“In Dead Ball, baseball and race—two enduring, and inextricably intertwined, American fixations—combine in a story filled with appealing characters and spot-on dialogue.”
-S. J. Rozan

“R. D. Rosen can weave as good a mystery as any of the top writers of the genre. Dead Ball is socially complex, emotionally compelling, and spot=on when it comes to realistic sports action and dialogue.”
-The Providence Phoenix

“The characters are unique and memorable, and the writing is witty, luminous, heart-pinching prose by one of the genre’s best, if not the most prolific, practitioners.”
-The Cleveland Plain Dealer
