The Catcher’s Mitt

Mitt

A cherished item can be seen, even touched. It has no life of its own. Alan Johnson, after searching through boxes in his cluttered attic, found such an item. In itself, it wasn’t anything special. It was old and tattered. No one craved it. No fortune could be obtained through it. But, to him, it was priceless. Why? It contained memories. And consequently, as he held it, as he stared at it–he began to remember. It was the summer of 1975–when life forever changed. He was thirteen, living in the beautiful coastal city of Wilmington, North Carolina. His days were filled with playing baseball, hanging out with his best friend, and, like many other thirteen-year old boys, falling in love for the very first time. In most ways, life was normal–but normal doesn’t always last.

As an ultra-conservative Christian he has little interest in the recent discovery of a murdered young man. The reason? Simple…because the victim was gay. That all changes when his son, Gary, returns home from college and shares the news that he too is gay. What’s more, he is determined to help discover who murdered his childhood friend. “Murder in the Bible Belt” is the compelling story of a father’s struggle between his beliefs and the unconditional love for his son…all while a killer is on the loose.
