Synopsis:

Trouble has a way of finding sports journalist Kate Henry. And with her natural curiosity and nose for a good story, she wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Dead Pull Hitter

For the first time in their history, the Toronto Titans are on a winning streak and headed for the World Series—a dream come true for sports reporter and baseball fan Kate Henry. But when a pair of murders hits the team at its very heart, Kate finds herself in the middle of the investigation.

Safe at Home

As the baseball season heats up, a serial killer stalks young boys on the streets of Toronto. While her boyfriend, Sergeant Andy Munro is at the heart of the investigation, Kate herself is working on the scoop of a lifetime—one that will rock the baseball world to its core.

Night Game

Spring training takes a grim turn when sports journalist Kate Henry and a fellow reporter find a local newsperson, Lucy Cartwright, dead on the beach. And when one of the Toronto Titans, Domingo Avila, is arrested and charged with the murder, Kate is pulled into yet another police investigation.

Striking Out

With the boys of baseball out on strike, Kate Henry finds herself with time on her hands. Passing on the chance to sit in on contract negotiations in New York, Kate instead turns her attention to issues closer to home—helping her boyfriend, Andy Munro recover from a shooting, and finding Maggie, a local homeless person now gone missing under mysterious circumstances.

Prairie Hardball

A trip home turns deadly as Kate Henry and her boyfriend, homicide detective Andy Munro, travel to Saskatchewan to celebrate Kate’s mother’s induction into the Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame.
