Brown, Walt, The Mickey Mantle Murder

The 1952 Mickey Mantle baseball card is a treasured artifact: the iconic card, depending on condition, can sell for up to half a million dollars. In The Mickey Mantle Murder, the card is the centerpiece of an international geopolitical murder. The novel details the investigation into the theft of the card and the disappearance of “Pete Rizzoli,” a well-known, flamboyant, and frequently abrasive sports collectible dealer whose worth is in the tens of millions. How did Rizzoli go missing? Who was clever enough to make his disappearance succeed? What unknown protocols did the criminals use to succeed in their endeavor? This unique murder mystery, set in the world of sports memorabilia collecting, features an earthy detective out to solve the case.
