John Billheimer: A Player to be Maimed Later

Novelist John Billheimer's new release, A Player to be Maimed Later, has a bit of a cautionary tone to it, a baseball version of the "be careful what you wish for" sense about it. Billheimer's Player follows reporter Lloyd Keaton as he undertakes to write superstar pitcher Blaze Stender's biography. When Stender dies unexpectedly, Keaton wants to continue the project, but Stender's widow wants him to stop. Soon it becomes clear that someone else wants him to stop as well, someone who's willing to kill in order to keep the book from being written.
