Kiss Em Goodbye

In Kiss Em Goodbye, I share not just this only known image of an Elizabeth Resolutes player in uniform, but also the story of the Resolutes' strange twenty-three-game journey as a major league baseball team.

The fascinating sports history of defunct teams in baseball, hockey, basketball and more! THEY’RE GOING, GOING, GONE. . . . Their names roll off the tongue, a litany of the damned: the Providence Steam Roller, the Wilmington Quicksteps, the Cincinnati Porkers. They are the lost squads of professional sports history—teams forsaken by fans, fleeced by owners, or forgotten by time. Until now. Kiss ’Em Goodbye unearths the real stories of dozens of vanished teams that once graced—and often disgraced—North America’s big leagues. Like the St. Paul Apostles, the only major league team never to have played a home game; Card-Pitt, the NFL’s World War II doormat; and the Philadelphia Quakers of the NHL, a team owned jointly by bootleggers and a retired boxer who climbed back into the ring to help meet payroll. In obituaries for both big-city franchises that skipped town (the Baltimore Colts, the Brooklyn Dodgers) and small-town teams that had their brief moment of glory (the Tonawanda Kardex, the Pottsville Maroons), Kiss ’Em Goodbye commemorates mysterious fires, waterlogged basketball courts, fields tended by goats (“cheaper than mowers!”), and uniforms that broke team budgets. It’s all here in a fascinating, hilarious, page-turning celebration of teams that prove it’s not whether you win or lose, but that you once played the game.

Sitting atop a hill overlooking the surrounding countryside, the Ravenhill School is a bastion of exclusivity, offering the children of the nation’s first families a magnificent education and a refuge from the harsh realities beyond its ancient cloisters—until the first student is found dead, upside down in a campus garbage can. When the body count rises, it becomes clear that Ravenhill has been invaded by a serial killer with a particularly gruesome appetite for display, each successive slaying more grotesque than the last. As the clues multiply, panic grips the environs of Ravenhill, and expert Nick Fowler is called in from out of town to break the case. From the school’s administrator who wants to keep the crimes under wraps to the police who resent an outsider’s intrusion, Nick’s investigation isn’t sitting well with the locals. As Nick draws closer to penetrating the killer’s twisted mind, he soon becomes a target. And when the murderer plants a series of taunting clues for Nick, he must tread carefully if he hopes to avoid a psychopath’s deadly trap. “Latches on to you . . . and won’t let go. . . . Eastburn has a truly diabolical mind . . . this book funnels you to death and horror with the frightening inevitability of a physical law.”—D. Keith Mano, author of Topless

There is nothing more deadly than an ambitious and desperate man. Even as the Allies inch ever closer to winning the war from within the dying embers of the Third Reich, a monstrous plot is hatched to restore Nazi Germany to world prominence. Major Michael Tagleva is flown to France on a top secret mission and soon finds himself in the thick of the fighting to liberate Paris. He becomes embroiled in a desperate race against time to protect his country from a web of intrigue and at the same time save the Tagleva banking empire from its enemies. Before the end, exhausted and despite personal tragedy, Michael comes face to face with the creator of the plot who will stop at nothing to win his prize. Can he find and eliminate the source of catastrophe before it overwhelms everything he holds dear. In this long-awaited completion of the Tagleva saga, Stephen Davis has once again uncovered true historical fact to create a gripping adventure, which treads the murky corridors of the intelligence services in London and Berlin, pulls back the veil of Switzerland’s secret banking system and ends with a truly shocking revelation from within the very heart of the Vatican.
