Major League Baseball, as it turns out, is a prime source of employment for a philosophically inclined, discreet detective who has both the brains and the brawn to handle the unique problems of professional athletes.
What sounds like the standard story of a pro athlete's marriage gone sour quickly turns into the most dangerous case of Adcock's second career when a teammate is killed in a car accident.
The investigation draws Adcock into a deadly ring of murder, porn, Mexican cartels and a conspiracy that threatens to become the biggest scandal to hit baseball since HGH and steroids.
"Jury of Six" By Dave P. Fisher
"Jury of Six" is a steadily moving western set against the backdrop of 1880 Nebraska. Families like the MacMahons were the backbone of the developing west. It was a time when the law was spread thin and honest men and women took care of difficulties in black and white.
Good men were respected; bad men were dealt with by the law of rope and gun. For eight years the disappearance of Niobrara ranchers Owen and Aiden MacMahon remained a mystery.
When an outlaw gang begins running roughshod over the country leaving another MacMahon for dead, the hard-as-nails MacMahons go hunting for those responsible only to find an old enemy and the answer to the eight-year-old mystery.
