If anyone ever told me that I'd be glued to my chair reading a book that included a zombie apocalypse, I'd have said they were out of their freaking mind. But I'd also be eating my words right now, because I just spent the last few hours reading In Search of the Legendary Phineas Ray from start to finish.

Of course, this is not your typical zombie novel... In fact, there's nothing typical about this book at all! (The "pulp-free" author bio is the perfect example of that LOL.)

In short, it's more of a comical sci-fi mystery as the main character Rick tries to fulfill a last wish for his grandfather. Along the way, the quirky characters make you laugh out loud (the loony librarian was a riot!) while plot zigs and zags keep you guessing. Oh, and there's a bit of smart satire on modern life sprinkled in too.

In the end, the author neatly ties up all the pieces--and an unexpected twist brings it all full circle. Definitely a fun read!

Mr. Rinnert starts innocuously enough with a baseball player.
It's a quiet beginning to a novel that leads us gently into a landscape that veers ever further from the norm, which doesn't seem to really bother anyone at the time. There are more government intrigues than a Ludlum novel, a body count to equal any Cohen brothers flick, alien ships, counterfeit baseball memorabilia, zombies on TV - and all without making the story seem overblown.
Deftly handled and slickly written, Mr. Rinnert's first novel charms. Recommended.

I too purchased this on a whim. And when I saw it had something about a baseball player, I was thinking it would probably be a "meh" book, just something to fill a few hours.

Bzzt, wrong. This... was... awesome. Within the first few pages you're hooked just because the author brings such a fresh voice to his narrator. If you don't believe this, download the Kindle sample to see for yourself.

But you know what? Save yourself some time. Skip the sample and just buy the damn book. The admission is cheap, but the ride is unpredictable, funny and oddly mesmerizing, mainly because of the oddly mesmerizing nutjobs that are sprinkled throughout the entire book.
