Baker & Taylor
Overcome by an obsession with baseball and his favorite team, broken-down knife salesman Gil Renard becomes dangerously involved when star player Bobby Rayburn suffers a slump

Blackwell North Amer
Two men.
One is a baseball star. He has an ex-cheerleader for a wife and a girl in every big-league town. The ball comes off his bat like a firecracker. Bobby Rayburn isn't just a ballplayer. He's a god.
The other has a wife who's left him. His bank balance slides toward zero while his child support and car payments soar past the roof. He hates his job and the product he pushes. But the license plate on his 325i reads "WNSOX." Gil Renard isn't just a knife salesman. He's The Fan.
But what happens when the barrier between idolator and idol collapses? What happens when Gil Renard sacrifices everything he has left to raise the Sox from their depths and to rescue Bobby Rayburn from what threatens to be an irreversible slump? What happens when Gil Renard crosses the white line and anoints himself a player in the game?
What happens when the adoration of The Fan becomes the kiss of death?
A novel of compulsion. A novel of the unexpected. A novel of the American Dream sure to win a legion of new fans for Peter Abrahams.
