New York, St. Martin's, 1989. First edition. William Cochran was a fair-to-middling pitcher--until he kills a batter with an errant pitch. Disgraced, he retires from the game and opens a business with his friend Juice, a minor league catcher. Trouble is, Juice was into some REALLY dicey stuff, and Cochran is inadvertently involved when thugs gun Juice down. SIGNED by author to title page. Fine in near fine DJ, the latter showing slight wear to extremities. $12.50.
