Sacrifice Fly


Item Details

"Raymond Donne wasn't always a schoolteacher. Not only did he patrol the streets of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, as one of New York's Finest, but being the nephew of the chief of detectives, he was expected to go on to bigger things. At least he was until the accident that all but destroyed his knees. Unable to do the job the way he wanted, he became a teacher in the same neighborhood, and did everything he could to put the force behind him and come to terms with the change. Then Frankie Rivas, a student in Ray's class and a baseball phenom, stops showing up to school. With Frankie in danger of failing and missing out on a scholarship, Ray goes looking for him only to find Frankie's father bludgeoned to death in their apartment. Frankie and his younger sister are gone, possibly on the run. But did Frankie really kill his father? Ray can't believe it. But then who did, and where are Frankie and his sister?"--From publisher description.

Author Tim O'Mara will be at the Callaway County Public Library on July 18, 2013, the Columbia Public Library on July 25 and the Southern Boone County Public Library on July 30. "Sacrifice Fly" is a great read. Likeable school teacher Raymond Donne combines his police training skills with his compassion for his students. The who-done-it keeps you guessing to the end.

This is the first I have read a book by this author and it had a good plot, kept you guessing of what was next and how it would come out. I would read more of his, only doesn't look like he has written another one.
