Summary
Tin?s brother Satchel was a phenomenal baseball talent on the verge of his major league debut when he took his fiancée to meet his brother. He couldn?t have known what would happen; that Tin and Wendy would fall in love and break his heart. Faced with such a betrayal, he simply disappears. Despite this rift, Tin and Wendy spend several blissful years together?until one day Wendy is murdered, bludgeoned to death with a baseball bat. Satchel is the prime suspect. Now Tin is turning thirty, but he?s not celebrating. Instead, he?s doing his best to avoid the ghosts that haunt him incessantly, with the help of his friends Jim Beam and Jack Daniels. Tin has lost everyone he ever loved, but almost more than loss and loneliness, it is guilt that is tearing him apart?for he blames himself. Life holds no attraction for him, until he meets the beautiful and precocious teenager Moira, who challenges him enough for his interest in living to revive. But then Moira?s father is abducted?by Satchel. Spurred into action, Tin and Moira must try and follow the kidnapper?s instructions, hoping against hope that they can save Moira?s father without falling into a trap built for them. Now that Tin has finally found something he wants to live for, will he be allowed to?
