Allen began writing after a 25-year career as an accountant/finance professional--he is still active as a self-employed consultant. In addition, he has been an amateur baseball umpire for close to 30 years, currently working high school and youth games. He is married and has two adult children.

Look, I know Allen, or at least... I'm familiar with him. We met somewhere along the digital highway and I've been a fan ever since. I keep his name up on my Facebook wall... like a trophy of sorts. Why? Because ALLEN SCHATZ can write.
I mean really, he CAN write. Let's establish that right up front. There are writers, and then... well, there are pretenders. ALLEN SCHATZ is the real deal, and I would sign him in a New York Minute if I thought he'd take the deal.
It's that simple, really. ALLEN is an AUTHOR.... I would not be here wasting my time if i thought otherwise.
DEADBALL was my first experience with him, and in that work, Schatz had me from the first page while I read about his main character standing on the pitcher's mound ... I was hooked. We have an inside joke, ALLEN and I... if I make it in Hollywood first, I'll produce or publish his work, and well, he is supposed to keep that same deal around a similar set of circumstances.
DEALS are like BLOOD OATHS, you either keep them, or rover will chomp at your heels for eternity.
We made that deal three years ago as I had just finished reading DEADBALL on a 747 red eye headed for Los Angeles where I was to pitch yet another screenplay i'd written. That was five scrips and two agents ago. I've learned a lot since then, but I never forgot the talent from Milmont, Pennsylvania.
So.. once again,RALLY KILLER was in my hand on a run from Miami to JFK, and well, RALLY was a home run with the BASES LOADED, which made my experience with RALLY KILLER a GRAND SLAM.

I "met" the author of this book on twitter. He's a fellow Phillies fan, so when the opportunity arose to get the first book in this series for free, I just on it! Of course, it was a no-brainer that I absolutely had to buy the other two! As long as you are a baseball fan, I know you will enjoy this series immensely! Well written and keeps your interest the whole way through! I'm hoping there will be a fourth book in this series in the future.
Enjoyable, well written story with good character development and pacing. I cared about what happened as it unfolded, and it's not just for baseball fans. A well done read. I look forward to more from Allen Schatz.

Wow Allen has done it once again and this is the best of the 3 in the series. It was like it's over? That was a fast paced fantabulous thriller story of mystery, murder, a little romance and a suicide. Again baseball is in the background of the story, this makes for a different and interesting story and you don't even have to like baseball to love this story or the series!!!! Dick Francis is to horseracing compared to what Allen has done with baseball! You won't regret getting this one with the "who dunnit" and the twist and turns to keep you interested!
