More than a sports novel, The Perfect Game looks at America's love-hate fascination with celebrities through the eyes of Bob O'Toole, a sports writer who chronicles the career of a pitcher who has discovered a true miracle pitch. The pitcher, Lou Malinski, was an average 30-something guy until one day, quite by chance, he develops a knuckle-ball style that turns him into baseball's brightest star. Set in the near future, in Mt. Airy, Maryland, then in Washington, D.C. -- the city gets a team -- the story follows the remarkable rise and the inevitable fall of a sports legend.
