Book 65 of 52 -- Stephen Frey's Forced Out

This starts off as two separate stories that are obviously going to merge.

One is a mafia story, the other is a baseball story.

The mafia story is an interesting and believable read.

Perhaps this is because I have no idea how mafia characters would really behave and I am letting the author get away with literary murder?

The baseball story is filled with very cardboard characters that were hard for me to empathize with or believe in.

The characters were so flawed that it was hard to get behind them or cheer for them.

Still, it comes together in an interesting enough way to keep your attention and I ended up finding the book to be a fairly good read.
