Where to buy it


A trip home turns deadly as Kate Henry and her boyfriend, homicide detective Andy Munro, travel to Saskatchewan to celebrate her mother’s induction into the Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame.

All former players in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, Helen “Wheels” MacLaren Henry and her teammates don’t at first take the threatening letters seriously. But when one of their own turns up dead, they must dig into their collective pasts in order to expose the killer before he—or she—can strike again.

Set in 1990’s Saskatchewan, Prairie Hardball is the fifth and final book in the Kate Henry mystery series.
