Summer of Shadows

Summer of Shadows: A Murder, A Pennant Race, and the Twilight of the Best Location in the Nation - Jonathan Knight Knight tried to tie the 1954 Cleveland Indians' pennant race in with the Sam Sheppard murder case and tie that in with Cleveland's decline as the "best location in the nation". He was successful in writing an entertaining book - and you don't have to know much about baseball to enjoy it - but I don't know that he made any connections except that they happened in the same year. Erik Larson (Thunderstruck, The Devil in the White City) has written similar books, but he managed to connect the crime with the historical event a little better. Even so, I quite enjoyed this book, and would recommend it to anyone who likes easy reading histories.
