Item Description...
Veteran pitcher Cody King takes the mound for Game Seven of the World Series unaware it will mark the final nine innings of his troubled existence. With each pitch, King confronts a past - from being abandoned by his teenage mother to keeping his wife's love from fading away - filled with tragedy and talent. King, a fatherless son who grew up to become one of the best pitchers in baseball, struggles in the midst of the most important performance of his life to allow the one true father he has never known reach him before it is too late. A story of fathers, sons and baseball, THE KING'S GAME chases after what many men flee from most - their own mortality and the beautiful, undeniable mystery that is God's love. "A rich, well-told, thought-provoking tale about the precious moments we have on this earth and the role baseball can play in shaping our lives." - The Tennessean

Official Reviews for "The King's Game"  Dec 17, 2007
(from the Author, John Nemo's, Web Page -

"The situation and the story behind it is a story that happens in baseball. To be able to go and read something like that really takes you close to the game and something that is real. I think John Nemo has a great insight into the game and the book really spelled out the game and how it was. And this book was something different. You see sports movies and the action is kind of a farce, distant and away from how it really is. But I think that the action that was in the book was accurate and true to form. I think The King's Game would be a book that all fans would like."
- Michael Cuddyer, Minnesota Twins outfielder -

"There's nothing too unrealistic. As long as the book is something we can relate to (as baseball players), something not too far fetched, I tend to get into it. I'd like to sit down and read The King's Game front to back, and I will when I get some time. The parts of the book that I did read kept me interested, kept me reading, even though I was into other books at the time. The book's baseball action was something that made me want to keep coming back, to keep reading."
- Joe Nathan, Minnesota Twins All-Star Closer -

"It's Game 7 of the World Series, and John Nemo provides a pitch-by-pitch narrative that not only showcases his baseball knowledge, but also shows a deft writing skill. Cody King, a tortured soul, relives his life while trying to keep runners off the bases. So much pain, brief moments of happiness and misguided faith: Will King be saved? The answer to that is a powerful metaphor."
- Tampa Tribune -

"A compelling, play-by-play story ... As a fatherless son, Cody King grips tightly to his game, desperate to stave off further rejection and running away from his heavenly Father. With the feeling of being at the game, readers will watch Cody's life - with its shocking revelations, tragic losses and career struggles - unfold before their eyes. Finally, he must face the most important decision of his life - before it's too late. The King's Game ... offers the message of salvation loud and clear."
- Christian Retailing -

"The King's Game is definitely more than just a simple book about baseball. It's clearly written with a warm perspective on life, too. It's easy to put yourself in the story, which is the objective of any good tale."
- Associated Press -

"At its start, The King's Game makes you wonder if a 'real' pitcher could engage in that many - and that interesting - reveries. By its end, John Nemo makes you positive nothing could be more real. This may just be the only time a baseball game moves too quickly."
- -

"A rich, well-told, thought-provoking tale about the precious moments we have on this earth and the role baseball can play in shaping our lives."
- The Tennessean -

"The King's Game is a very interesting elaboration of Michael Shaara's For Love of the Game, and, for my money, Nemo's knowledge of baseball beats even Shaara's."
- Tim Morris, Guide to Baseball Fiction -

"John Nemo hits a first-pitch home run with The King's Game. Richly sprinkled with characters I felt I had known all my life and scenes I could easily envision."
- The Tuscaloosa (Ala.) News -
