    There is something vintage about Howard Owen's books. They are set in present day, but have an old fashioned noirish feel to them. Or maybe it's the references to Parker Field (which changed it's name almost 30 years ago), Penny Lane, the Prestwould and so on. But the story lines are s...

    Another Willie Black mystery, another great standalone drama of hard-drinking journalism and hard-hitting crime, and a wonderfully evocative literary novel founded in the history of baseball?s minor league, Howard Owen?s Parker Field is fascinating, absorbing and enjoyable. Will...

    A former minor league baseball player in his seventies is shot with a high powered rifle and is lying in a hospital bed clinging to life. No one can figure out who would want to shoot Les, an unassuming, kind man who does not seem to have any enemies. When it is discovered that an addl...

    This was of interest to me because it deals with former baseball players. I don't usually jump into book 3 of a series without at least reading book 1. This did not hamper my understanding of the characters. The writing was good, but it is in first person, which is not always wha...

    I got this book on the good reads first view sweepstakes. As a 39-year-old man who lives in Denver now and grew up in Richmond Virginia the title of the book caught My eye. When they tore down Parker field in the mid-80s I was at the last game with my dad. I can still remember the win ...

    It's very good but the edge is taken off the excitement by the overly melodramatic ending. http://opionator.wordpress.com/2014/0... ...

    Willie Black book number three is an enjoyable, but not particularly substantial work of crime fiction. Sometimes it's enough to just be entertained. I give this a little extra for the baseball backstory since I'm a fan of the sport. ...

    Howard Owen?s Parker Field is the third in his series featuring Willie Black, reporter for a struggling newspaper in Richmond Virginia, functioning alcoholic, and baseball enthusiast. Having read only this one so far, its fast-pace, engaging narrative voice, and interesting plot move...

    An easy read, with good character development. I am not a baseball fan, but I thoroughly enjoyed how baseball was introduced throughout the story. ...

    Baseball & Murder Got an advance copy of Parker Field by Howard Owen from Goodreads The plot is relatively simple: someone is killing off all the members of a 1964 minor-league baseball team. Although the baseball part of this novel is pretty much on the periphery of the acti...
