It's 1996. The Soviet Union still exists. The pariah Republic of Oran sits in northern Africa. And professional baseball has expanded to cities as far apart as Buffalo and Indianapolis, fueled by a desire by players and owners alike to buy labor peace. One of the men covering this expanded landscape is sportswriter Art Roland, a man of suspicious wealth and surrounded by dark rumors about his activities.
A shorthanded Smithtown Unit embarks on a cross-country investigation of Roland for its latest mission. There, Bill Morgan and Fred Tally will find out that an operation in the middle of the continental U.S. poses its own unique challenges, and that it can be just as deadly as any abroad.
Box Press is the second book in the Smithtown Unit series of alternate history action-adventure novels by Colin Salt.
