A Mickey Donovan MysteryBook - 1998
For tennis star Ginny Glade, life just got a little worse -- her baseball-playing ex-husband clinched the World Series and a bratty fifteen-year-old beat her in a tiebreaker. But Ginny's problems are only beginning because one of her biggest fans is fast becoming a notorious murderer by taking the cry of "Kill the ump!" to a deadly new level.Mickey Donovan, a veteran NYPD inspector, has his own problems, too: an egomaniacal mayor and police commissioner pulling at him from both ends, a daughter whose nasty little habit could derail his career, and now a psycho who isn't picky about a favorite sport when knocking off the refs and umpires after a game. As the sparks begin to fly between the cop and the tennis star, each realizes the other is holding something back, something that can save them from the "sore loser". McAlary's page-turning debut mystery introduces Inspector Mickey Donovan and a great voice in mystery writing.
