Wild Pitch. From a Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist of the American West comes the first installment in a mystery series as entertaining as the Montana sky is big A self-made cattle baron with a bad habit of letting his stock graze on his neighbors’ property, Buster Hogue has stepped on plenty of toes in Midbury, Montana. But orneriness is a virtue in this rough and beautiful land, and Buster’s disputes have always ended amicably—until tonight. Shot in the head at a picnic outside town, the crusty old rancher is rushed to the hospital barely alive. On a night when the moon shone bright enough to take target practice by, no one saw who pulled the trigger or where the bullet came from. With a plethora of motives and no real evidence, Sheriff Chick Charleston sets out to solve his first case of attempted murder. Aided by his eager sidekick, seventeen-year-old local pitching prospect Jason Beard, the sheriff employs every ounce of his wit, intelligence, and intuition to track down the ruthless sniper. The trail ends in a climactic showdown that will change the investigative duo’s lives forever. Populated with a colorful cast of local characters and enlivened by a wry humor and A. B. Guthrie Jr.’s keen appreciation for the rhythms of small-town Western life, Wild Pitch is the story of an impossible crime and the two men clever enough to solve it.

The Wild Pitch. The Wild Pitch is a tart satire wrapped in a sweet romantic comedy. It’s 1999 and deregulation is drastically changing radio in America. Enter Stone Turner, Jr., a wealthy underachieving arts-loving bachelor who has just inherited a lowly-rated sports talk radio station. But WSPR is not the only revitalization project on his mind in Cleveland. Ericka Hanson who left him in Boston after a bewitching love-affair is also there working as a communications consultant. After she pitches and convinces him to convert the sports talk format to “arts talk with attitude,” the station with its cadre of daft characters (and most of the city’s arts community) is turned topsy-turvy.
