Lost in the Ivy

Catalog Number: 
b.12
Date: 
2005
Volume: 
1st ed
Abstract: 
Reporter Charley Hubbs has left almost everything of his former life behind--even part of his memory. Now Charley has the story that any reporter would kill for. Problem is, he might have done just that--and his name has moved from the bylines to the headlines. Enlisting the aid of seductive, whip-smart bartender Elizabeth "Lizzy" Zapler, he makes a daring courthouse escape. From that point on, it's a race against time for the truth. Along the way, Charley discovers that he can run, but not hide, from his past. Against the backdrop of Chicago's storied Wrigley Field, a baseball shrine cursed by a billy goat, Charley is caught in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse that plays out in two seasons--one of futility and the other of hope.
