run with his engaging debut novel, After the Game !"

"Norman Chastain demonstrates with After the Game that he is a terrific new author. After the Game
features celebrity, America's favorite pastime, well-developed characters, descriptive locations, suspense, murder and a plot
that twists and turns in ways that surprise - what more could you ask for in a novel? An excellent and entertaining read."
