Description

After shooting one of her own clients and accidentally getting involved with the mob, Sofie Metropolis is finally starting to get the hang of the PI business. She's just landed her first high-profile case. A local Astoria girl has made good by marrying an up-and-coming South American pitcher who has just been signed by the New York Mets. Reni Venezuela's good looks and charm—not to mention his fastball and his slider—are bringing hordes of fans to Shea Stadium. But despite his stellar record, Reni's wife insists something's wrong with her husband. Can Sofie find out what?

Meanwhile, romance and all its complications are heating up for Sofie. But while the Mets steamroll toward the pennant race, Sofie must tail Reni and hope that whatever she discovers—steroids or an affair?—won't cost her beloved Mets the Series.

        April 16, 2007
        At the start of the lighthearted third Sofie Metropolis mystery (after 2006's Dirty Laundry
        ) from Carrington (the nom de plume for husband-and-wife Lori and Tony Karayianni), the forgetful, peculiar behavior of the Mets' newest pitching sensation, Reni Venezuela, alarms his wife, Gisela. Gisela hires Greek-American PI Sofie, a fellow native of Astoria, Queens, to get the goods on the star baseball player before the play-offs. But this is no simple cheating spouse case: Sofie observes that the normally ambidextrous Reni has pitched the last four games left-handed, and her assistant's research reveals that his last name is actually "Bastardo." In between the sleuthing, Sofie finds time for her effusive extended family and her romantic interest, Dino, the Greek immigrant sweet-shop owner who's tastier than his chocolate tortes. Smart, sassy Sofie knocks the ball out of Shea Stadium in this colorful concoction.
