Meh. I liked the main character, but I just couldn't get into this one. The plot was a little too convoluted and it dragged for me. It wasn't a particularly long book, but it took me forever to read. I had high hopes for an ex-baseball player mystery character since I love baseball, but that wasn't enough to keep my interest. ( )

this was a quick read, an enjoyable romp with some interesting characters and places. i particularly enjoyed the baseball references, an exposure to a little-known about world, at least for me. the main character was likable but the girl reporter seemed a bit forced and not as believable as Whip. i'd read more about Whip and his band of misfits.

Leo Banks pitches a perfect game with "Double Wide", the story of a disgraced baseball pitcher who is pulled out of involuntary retirement by the murder of his friend.

Whip Stark knows that he lives in smuggling country and follows a policy of see no evil, hear no evil. Then one night a severed hand is left on his porch and a body (with two hands) is found up the road. Stark's quiet, if eccentric, life is disrupted.

Stark's fight against the drug cartel is supported by a team of players from local TV reporter, law enforcement, minor league baseball, and his own little community of Double Wide, Arizona. Mr. Banks, who by day is an award-winning journalist, smoothly draws us into this world. His descriptions of the American Southwest are lovely.

I received a review copy of "Double Wide" by Leo W. Banks (Brash) directly from the publisher. ( )

Desert Noir

Out in the hot dry Sonoran desert surrounding Tucson, you have trailer outposts where people escape from the world, abandoned mines, washed up Minor League players, strip clubs, Narco-gunman, and of course the Biosphere 2. It is a world that at times feels more akin to the Wild West of Tombstone than to modern Tucson. The Phenom, a guy whose pitching future had nearly no parallels, until has arm fell apart and his confidence fell apart, and he got busted with drugs down in Mexico, bought a big ole Airstream and holed up in the desert with a few odd tenants and runaways. And, things rattled along until one day he opens his front door and finds his friends arm. And then things get a little dicey as solving they mystery with an ace reporter in spiked heels at his side leads to machete wielding narco smugglers, mad scientists, and back to the ballpark. ( )

I received this book as part of the Early Reviewer program.

This book is about a former professional baseball player named Whp Stark who owns a trailer park in a small town called Double Wide, AZ. When Whip comes across the severed hand of his former catcher, he sets out on a series of adventures to find out what happened to his catcher/friend. Along the way, his relationships with his tenants that he rents to are explored.

I’m torn about this book. Some of the relationships that Whip is involved with are very interesting. I guess I feel like there was too many things trying to be done in the plot (many subplots) and the author didn’t fully flesh any of them out. For example, Whip keeps visiting his Dad whose serving time in prison for a murder. Whip goes and visits his dad every week and there’s a couple of chapters that focus on this. Looking back at these chapters, they really didn’t have anything to do with the murder mystery and could of been cut from the book.

Don’t get me wrong, overall the characters were enjoyable and I found myself laughing in some parts of the book. I liked Whip, his tenants and his girlfriend Roxanne who is a reporter. I even liked his little dog Chico.....

Overall, a decent read. I would probably read something else by this author again in the future. ( )
