Fastball: All Four “Ball” Novels by Jimmy Sangster by Brash Admin

All FOUR of Jimmy Sangster’s brilliant, critically-acclaimed and darkly funny “James Reed” crime novels in one volume

SNOWBALL
James Reed is an ex-Scotland Yard detective who became the bodyguard, then lover, then husband, then ex-husband of Hollywood superstar Katherine Long. Now he’s a self-styled beach bum, living in the Malibu beachhouse he got in the divorce settlement, and making a half-assed effort at screenwriting. But then Katherine comes back into his life — her rebellious, spoiled daughter Caroline is mired in the Hollywood celebrity drug scene. Katherine thinks James is the only one who can get his former step-daughter out before it beomes a scandal…or worse. The problem is, Caroline doesn’t want out, and his troubles snowball as James becomes an unwilling player in a $2 million scheme involving stolen drugs, high-powered studio execs, and ruthless mob killers.

“Smooth, sharp, believeable, well-written.” New York Times

BLACKBALL
James is happily lazing around in the Malibu beach house he snagged in the divorce when a storm slams the coastline with monster waves. He rushes out to help evacuate other homes…and discovers a passed-out, drunken neighbor and a naked woman robbing the man’s floor safe. Reed lets her go… a mistake that gets him falsely accused of rape, chased by killers, and hired by a billionaire being blackmailed into marriage. And that’s only the beginning of Reed’s troubles.

“This is a fast-moving, funny, sexy — very sexy — story. The conclusion is a shocker. Sangster is writing better than ever and James Reed is a very charming character.” The Orlando Sentinel

HARDBALL
He’s taking it easy when, to make some fast cash, he agrees to provide temporary lodging and security to a wealthy recluse recovering from an undisclosed illness. That simple job takes a wild turn into a nightmare of blackmail, drugs, and murder that could put James in prison… or a shallow grave.

“Excellently plotted and paced, this adventure offers the satisfaction of a hard-boiled L.A. detective story overlaid with the nuances of a British mystery..” Publishers Weekly

FIREBALL
Reed’s first date with a woman he meets on a tennis court goes very, very bad, getting him beaten, accused of murder, and pursued by killers. And that’s just in one night. Now he’s trapped in nightmare of sex, blackmail and murder…and to get out, he must go to New York…and worm his way into the rotten core of the Big Apple.

“Raymond Chandler fans will welcome this posthumous gift from Sangster,” Publishers Weekly

“Smoothly entertaining,” Booklist
