Bookstore owner-turned-amateur sleuth Penelope Warren and her feline sidekick, "Big Mike" Mycroft, investigate when the owner of the Arizona Coyotes, a semi-professional baseball team, is killed by a blow from a baseball bat during the annual Empty Creek, Arizona, Elizabethan Festival.

Blackwell North Amer
Famous for its yearly Elizabethan Festival and annual Arabian Horseshow, Empty Creek, Arizona, would truly be nowhere without a visit from a semi-professional baseball team. Barely out of the dugout, trying to break a hot losing streak, the Coyotes are hoping to star in the minor leagues. But before the first note of the National Anthem is sung, somebody uses the owner's head for a baseball and scores a deadly hit.
A corpse before morning coffee is not her usual style, but Penelope Warren knows that the free-spirited denizens of Empty Creek depend on her and Mycroft, her twenty-five-pound Abyssinian cat, to keep them safe from killers in their midst. The ex-Marine, Peace Corps veteran and sometime sandlot shortstop, Penelope is also the proprietress of the town's most distinguished mystery bookstore. She has a reputation to sustain and a taste for sleuthing that no amount of success can satisfy.
Management squabbles, money troubles, marital mayhem, and an ex-major leaguer struggling to make a comeback don't make it any easier to understand why the murder weapon bears a very small set of fingerprints; what the strange file found in the team office means; or whether the victim has been concealing a secret lover. From the female Fury in charge of the Coyotes' fitness training to the team's not-so-silent partner, from a computer nerd to an ex-Vegas showgirl, Penelope and Mycroft find themselves stranded in the outfield with a full team of suspects - enough to fill a ballpark - and threatened by a clever killer ready to risk the whole game to get away with murder and steal home.
