Love mystery? Fantasy? Film noir? How about Philip Marlowe or David Eddings? If you can say yes to any of these questions, run, don’t walk, to get a copy of The Case of the Pitcher’s Pendant. It’s the perfect mix of all the above.
Tee Morris flows in his use of metaphor and imagery of the 1920’s. If you have listened to the podcast of The Case of the Singing Sword you can almost hear Tee narrating his latest Billibub offering.

Enjoy the mix of baseball and fantasy metaphors that flow together seamlessly.

Billi’s character development, as well as that of the supporting cast is credible. No need to suspend (much) belief when reading. I could go on, but I’m afraid of giving out spoilers.

If you don’t mind mixing your genres, this is an enchanting and entertaining read. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Chicago, 1930, and following the financial calamity of Black Thursday, Billi is doing everything he can to keep his business afloat. The change in seasons, though, brings him a case that appears to be a true blessing from The Fates. Chicago Cubs Manager Joe McCarthy suspects something fishy with the Baltimore Mariners, a new team in the league, and he's hiring Billi to look into it. What appears to be the dream job - being paid to research and attend baseball games - turns out to be a nightmare as he discovers one of the Nine Talismans of Acryonis somewhere in play at Wrigley. And wouldn't you know it - with two outs and bases loaded, the heavy hitter of the Underworld "Big Al" gets early parole from The Big Dugout and is swinging two in the Batter's Circle"--Cover.… (more)
