Baseball moves along at its own speed. No clock. No rush.

Plenty of time for introspection.

America's pastime is the backdrop for John Lindholm's debut novel, "Last of the Third."

It's a story of love and loss, of being lost and found, and of forgiveness and fastballs.

The township of Quail is almost completely overrun by suburban sprawl, save the small slice occupied by McMaster Restaurant and Field.

It's up to 22-year-old Shawn McMaster to save his family's---and his town's---way of life as time ticks down toward an improbable deadline.

But Shawn hasn't been seen around Quail, or anywhere, in four years. Luckily, the town eccentric stumbles across Shawn in a grocery store in the middle of the night. But will anybody believe he's really found Shawn?

And even if they do, can Shawn forgive himself for what he did, and return home when Quail needs him more than ever?

With an annual grudge match baseball game telling the story in the final act, "Last of the Third" sprints to its conclusion with all the speed of a September pennant race.
