About Red Chaser:
Jake McHenry spent five years in Germany after Hitler’s War, and came back laden with ill-gotten Nazi riches.
Back home in Brooklyn, he became a private detective because he needed a pretend job to hide the source of his riches. Mostly, however, he went to most Brooklyn Dodgers games at Ebbets Field and drank beer.
Then Joe McCarthy entered the picture. Tailgunner Joe wanted Jake to steal a secret list of celebrity American communists from the Ice Queen, a rich high-society commie named Arabella Van Dyk. The Ice Queen also happened to be the most beautiful woman that Jake had ever seen.
It was easy for Jake to break into the Ice Queen’s brownstone in Manhattan, but it unleashed Russians, North Koreans, J. Edgar Hoover, mobsters and one stunningly beautiful spy in a wild chase for the list.
In the background is the greatest pennant race in the history of Major League Baseball. It’s 1951, and the New York Giants chased the Brooklyn Dodgers for the National League Pennant. That’s the year that Bobby Thompson hit the “shot heard ’round the world.” The pennant—and Jake’s life—came down to the last inning and the last pitch at the Polo Grounds in New York City on Wednesday, October 3, 1951.
Red Chaser is fun, it’s 1950s noir, it’s Brooklyn, it keeps you guessing, and just when you think you’ve figured it all out, you find out you’ve figured wrong. Have fun reading Red Chaser today.

I spent most of my adult life running pro sports teams, first NBA teams, and then a group of seven minor league baseball teams.
With each job, there was a crazy amount of travel. With all those miles, I read and I wrote, and when I got tired of doing that, I would read and write some more. My fifth book, Marketing Outrageously, became a Wall Street Journal bestseller.
And then, Amazon Kindle came out. I loved it. Someplace along the line, I vowed never to read a book that wasn’t on Kindle. (That vow didn’t last, but most of the books I read are on Kindle.) Kindle also got me thinking about doing more of my own writing.
I wrote Red Chaser, a novel about the 1950s, the Cold War and the Brooklyn Dodgers. I didn’t even go to a mainstream publisher. I only wanted it on Kindle. It sold well. I followed that with Marketing Outrageously Redux, a sequel to my Wall Street Journal bestseller.
Then came Do-Overs, a Time Travel Thriller of Sudden Second Chances. Do-Overs is currently ranked in the Top 100 of Time Travel novels on Amazon.
I have fun writing my novels or non-fiction books, and I hope my readers do indeed have fun reading them. If you’ve read any of my stuff and feel comfortable about giving reviews, please do. Or, if you want to contact me directly, my personal email is email@example.com.
