Alice Ott, cyber sleuth, veteran activist, and Raging Granny, returns to sound the alarm in highly suspicious murder case. When the body of a woman is found at the front gates of an aging nuclear power plant, Homeland Security is called in. The dead woman is wearing a peace sign on her jacket and a belt of explosives. Eco terrorism is suspected, but Alice doesn’t buy it. After decades of opposition to the leaking nuclear plant, local environmental activists celebrate the news that the plant is finally going to close. But danger looms larger than ever as EnergX, the corporate owners of the Patriot plant, distract the local community from the deadly truth about the closure. Alice creates an unusual assortment of co-conspirators in her quest to uncover the identity of the woman at the gate. This diverse coalition includes her long-lost lover Gerard, a trio of young adventurers looking for a new start, a resilient resident of the local nursing home next door to the nuclear facility, and a top administrator from the nuclear plant. Alice Ott’s latest breath-taking adventure takes the reader from the peaceful banks of the Connecticut River into the dark secrets of the aging nuclear reactor. Alice and company prove once again that, from the youngest to the oldest, ordinary citizens have the power to change their destiny.

Ware, Massachusetts: population 9,000+. Remarkably, since the mid-1800s, no fewer than seven of its native sons have chased their boyhood dreams, become pro ballplayers, and made it to the major leagues. One invented the curveball and is enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame; three others were members of World Series champion teams. Many were from families of immigrant mill workers; another's pedigree traces to the beginnings of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. WARE'S BOYS OF SUMMER accompanies them all as they climb to baseball's summit, witnesses their struggles and triumphs along the way, and weaves into their stories such colorful sketches as the purchase of a player for a dozen donuts; a congenial visit by teammates with Al Capone; home runs rewarded with a ham; and a team owner's zany ballpark attractions that saved minor league baseball. Over this 160-year journey, you'll get to know Ware's seven major leaguers while you follow the evolution of our national pastime. Stephen Robert Katz is from Massachusetts, born in Ware and raised in Winthrop. Although his United Nations career took him to places far from his New England roots, he has retained an affection for Ware and an interest in its history. Growing up a subway and trolley ride away from Fenway Park, Stephen was inaugurated into Red Sox fandom at an early age. A member of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR), he brings to WARE'S BOYS OF SUMMER his fascination with history and his love of baseball. His website is www.stephenrkatz.com.
