He Writes Sports Books, Too???

Just checking into the Mark Yost author page over at Amazon.

Seems there are only 5 copies left of “Varsity Green,” my behind the scenes look at the culture and corruption of college athletics that truly made “Yost” a four-letter word at the NCAA and D-I campuses (or is it campii??) across the country.

So Amazon has marked down “Varsity Green” from $25 to $18.

“A bargain at twice the price,” as my mother used to say.

While there, you can also pick up a copy of “Cooper’s Daughter: A Rick Crane Noir,” my newest murder mystery, available for just $2.99.

(See previous quote from my mother)

Here’s what people are saying about Cooper’s Daughter, which has garnered no less than 14 5-star reviews:

“Great characters, good plot, and well written.”

“Today, I picked it up again and I found myself so intrigued that I read it through in one sitting.”

“Incredibly engaging and powerfully worded. I love how the author leave things to our imagination sometimes but spells out what we need to know for the flavor of the scenes.”

About Mark Yost
Mark Yost is the author of the Rick Crane Noir series, published by Stay Thirsty Press. Rick Crane is the classic, anti-hero private eye in the spirit of Sam Spade and Jim Rockford. He works in the unmistakably noirish underworld of Upstate New York, running errands and fixing problems for Jimmy Ricchiati Sr., one of Upstate New York's most notorious crime bosses. But readers quickly learn that deep down, Rick Crane is one of the good guys. "Cooper's Daughter," the first book in the widely acclaimed series, is a fast-moving tale in which a heartbroken father comes to Rick and asks him to find out what really happened to his daughter, who was murdered and the details buried in the Unsolved Crimes File of the local police department. The second book in the series is "Jimmy's Nephew," which begins with the death of Joey "Boom Boom" Bonadeo, an up-and-coming boxer and the nephew of Rick's underworld boss. What starts out as a routine investigation turns into a case that will test Rick's faith -- in the Catholic Church and his fellow man. Book No. 3 in the series, "Mary's Fate" is due out in August 2015. Mark Yost also writes for The Wall Street Journal Arts in Review page, as well as the Book Review section. He is a member of the Mystery Writers of America -- Midwest Chapter, International Thriller Writers, and a number of other author groups. He is also a member of the Amazon Author's Program. Mark lives in the Loyola neighborhood of Chicago, but he and his son, George, call the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn "home."
