Camel Press Releases Curveball by Jen Estes: A Sportswriter Exposes Corruption in Santo Domingo
The second mystery featuring sportswriter Cat McDaniel. Curveball follows Cat to a Latin American training facility where she investigates the exploitation of young ball players., 10/01/2012 - Seattle, WA.—Camel Press is delighted to announce the release of Curveball ($15.95, 312 pp., ISBN: 978-1-60381-895-7), by Jen Estes, the second book in a mystery series featuring female sportswriter Cat McDaniel. Curveball follows Cat to a Latin American training facility where she investigates the exploitation of young ball players.

Long and Short Reviews writes: “Three words to describe Cat McDaniel: Sassy, smart, and sleuth .... Curveball is saucy, mysterious, and a pleasurable read. Ms. Estes creates a lot of mystery and intrigue within the pages of this novel .... Even if you aren't a fan of sports, Curveball is so much more than that. Cat McDaniel is not a woman to be messed with, and she manages to make things happen in light of murder, scams, and much more. If you're a fan of cozy type mysteries with a female sleuth, Curveball is a story you can curl up with and get lost in the pages for awhile. Why not grab a copy?”

A blog tour for Curveball, sponsored by Partners in Crime, begins October 10th.

Cat McDaniel has a new job. Roger Rakin’ Aiken—baseball legend and father to a bratty co-ed named Paige—hires her as team writer for the Buffalo Soldiers. But first she must travel to Santo Domingo and report on the training facility while she watches out for Paige. After a dead body turns up, Cat realizes that corruption is everywhere. Can she Cat really keep Paige—and herself—out of trouble?

Says Estes, “I didn’t just choose Santo Domingo for my setting; it chose me! The city’s passion for baseball burns hotter than the Caribbean sun. I also wanted to bring awareness to exploitation within the baseball industry and the effect that corruption has on aspiring ballplayers.”

Born and raised in Illinois, Jen Estes started her writing career as a baseball blogger in 2007 and expanded to freelance sports writing in 2009. She is an active member of the Society of American Baseball Research (SABR), Springfield Poets & Writers and the National Writers Union (NWU). When Jen isn’t writing, she enjoys running, yoga, traveling and watching baseball with her husband and cat. You can find her on the net at or and on Twitter @jenestesdotcom.
