Editorial Reviews


"Jonathan Quick is the proprietor and founder of Quick Baseball Artifacts. He deals in treasures and goes beyond the call of duty to find them. When The Fungo Society, an active group of senior citizen baseball players, calls upon Quick to assist in an urgent matter, he does not hesitate. Leaving a carton of milk on the kitchen counter, Jonathan Quick boards the first available flight and heads to Phoenix where the sun doesn't stop shining and baseball memorabilia abound. At the expense of The Fungo Society, Quick looks forward to taking care of collector business while there, as well as appeasing his geriatric friends. It isn't baseball paraphernalia The Fungo Society wants this time, though. It's a murderer. Why hire Jonathan Quick? Because...well...he finds things.

The Fungo Society: A Quick Baseball Mystery by Jeff Stanger is one of the most enjoyable reads I have had in a long while. Sprinkled with wit and the aura of a Philip Marlow mystery, The Fungo Society is an updated version of the old classic whodunit. The dialogue is believable and the characters are fun. Stanger has a firm grasp on light humor that keeps the reader reading and wanting more. While integrating an impressive knowledge of baseball trivia, the author embraces not only baseball card collectors. Mystery fans of the Sue Grafton circle will also enjoy The Fungo Society's antics, quickly adding Stanger to the book shelf. I hope that Stanger has planned a series of Jonathan Quick stories because this collector wants them all." ~ Lisa McCombs for Readers' Favorite

About the Author

Jeff Stanger writes funny novels that usually have the game of baseball as a backdrop. You don't have to be a student of the game or even a fan to enjoy them, however. There is enough mystery, danger, and even romance to keep you on the edge of your seat. His current work includes the Quick Baseball Mystery Series which follows the exploits of a rare baseball memorabilia dealer who always seems to land himself in the middle of a criminal case to be solved. The first installment, The Fungo Society, finds Quick at Spring Training trying to find a rare game used jersey. Along the way, he meets a group of old ballplayers named the Fungo Society. Think Bull Durham meets Grumpy Old Men meets Oceans 11! 
In addition, Stanger has written Trolley Dodgers which follows the Midwest college town of Bloomington, IN as they try to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers. He also wrote Kansaska, a funny look back at the semi-pro minor leagues of the 1940's. 
Stanger lives and writes in Indianapolis, Indiana. Along with writing, he is a member of the faculty at The Fund Raising School at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University and a nonprofit consultant.
