Award Winning Author Dennis Hetzel at the Looking Glass Sat. Apr. 9th 4:00 PM
Meet award-winning author Dennis Hetzel at Looking Glass, Saturday, April 9, from 4 – 6 p.m.
The Chicago Cubs haven’t won a World Series for more than 100 years or even played in one since 1945. Now they’re positioned to win the Series for the first time since 1908 – if only curses and bad luck don’t haunt them as usual. That’s what happens when a swarm of gnats helps the Boston Red Sox tie the Series at three games each. To kill the curse, the Cubs must win Game 7 in Chicago.
No one wants the Cubs to win more than Luke Murphy, President of the United States and lifelong fan. Leading the disbelievers is Murphy’s boyhood friend, Bob Walters, a sports radio talk-show host with a beautiful daughter and a big ego who built ratings by being “the man Cub fans love to hate.”
The Cubs have someone else on their side—a brilliant, crazed fan who will do anything to make sure they win. Anything. It starts with an attack on the father of Boston’s best pitcher and grows into an escalating threat that could destroy Murphy’s career, expose childhood secrets, and kill hundreds of innocent people.
Everything comes to a head as Game Seven unfolds — a game the Cubs must win no matter what.
“Five stars … ‘Killing the Curse’ is a fantastic read, Cubs fan or not.” — Chris Fischer, author and reviewer, ReadersFavorite.com
