One of the worst nights in Philadelphia sports history: September 30,1964. While Phillies fans mourned the lost of the Pennant, one viewing party ended in the worst possible way. "Swoon (64)," available now on Kindle from Jane Kelly, author of the Meg Daniels mysteries, is a murder mystery set against the backdrop of the 1964 Phillies's September swoon.

Game 7 of 1964 World Series St. Louis beats NY.  Swoon '64 is set against the backdrop of the 1964 National League pennant race.
