About the Book:
Life is good for 22-year-old Christopher Casey. He has the car, the beautiful girl, and he plays baseball for the Gracetown Angels.

His best friend, Hank Mosley, is the team superstar, but when he slumps at the beginning of the 1958 season, everything starts to unravel. Hank takes dark and drastic steps to reverse his fortune... but at what price?

How far would you go to make your dreams come true?

The Angels is a tale of passion, friendship, and dreams—an all-American baseball story set in a golden age, with tones both chilling and magical, and a certain darkness that resonates with the modern game.

"This knowing, eerie fable is a delight. Rio Youers throws a mean knuckleball."
— Owen King, author of Double Feature
