Pamela Wechsler's enthralling series returns with The Fens, and promises to shock readers old and new.
Chief of homicide district attorney Abby Endicott hasn't had the easiest adjustment to normal life. Her wealthy Boston family has cut her off because of her dangerous job, her new apartment with her musician boyfriend Ty is not up to her standards, and her impending position as godmother to her new niece or nephew is overwhelming. However, her personal life is about to be put on hold when the catcher for the Red Sox goes missing and she gets the case.
Soon, it's not just a case of a missing celebrity. Another player turns up dead and the frantic search for Rudy Maddox escalates. It's when Abby discovers greased baseballs and mysterious sums of cash belonging to the victims that she realizes this goes far deeper than she realizes, and it may be more than just the Red Sox's season in danger.

The Fens An Abby Endicott Mystery by Pamela Wechsler
I knew I had to read this book when I read the synopsis and found out:
- It is set in my hometown of Boston
- It is about RedSox Players
- It is a Murder Mystery!
- It is a series
- I loved the way the author wrote in landmarks and kept it totally authentic.
I was not disappointed. This is the second book in the series and while it most definitely may be read as a standalone, I am itching to read the first book because I loved this one so much and I am now addicted to the characters and this series! The story opens with Boston’s chief homicide prosecutor Abby Endicott and her boyfriend TY caught in a false arrest that was racially motivated, the action and drama just intensifies with each page. Soon Abby gets a call to report to Fenway park, it seems a RedSox player has gone missing. Things just go from bad to worse as another player is found murdered. Abby uncovers a web of lies that centers around a key player all while trying to keep her wealthy family off her back about her dangerous choice of career. Her relationship with TY is suffering, her drinking seems to be mirroring her Mothers’ who is an alcoholic and her brother and sister-in law are expecting their first child. With all of this side drama Abby is razor sharp and laser focused. I devoured this book it was drama filled, intense and packed a punch with its well delivered lines and epic ending! This book is perfect for anyone who loves a great detective series.
