“The Fungo Society: A Quick Baseball Mystery by Jeff Stanger is one of the most enjoyable reads I have had in a long while. Sprinkled with wit and the aura of a Philip Marlow mystery, The Fungo Society is an updated version of the old classic whodunit. The dialogue is believable and the characters are fun. Stanger has a firm grasp on light humor that keeps the reader reading and wanting more. While integrating an impressive knowledge of baseball trivia, the author embraces not only baseball card collectors. Mystery fans of the Sue Grafton circle will also enjoy The Fungo Society’s antics, quickly adding Stanger to the book shelf. I hope that Stanger has planned a series of Jonathan Quick stories because this collector wants them all.”
