Popped Off is the 2nd installment in the Stay at Home Day mystery series by author Jeffrey Allen (aka Jeff Shelby).  I posted about the first book in his series, Stay at Home Dead and I think this is going to be a winner of a series!



For stay-at-home dad Deuce Winters, the cutthroat world of suburban kiddie sports leagues is unavoidable. In his small town, Moises Huber is known at the King of Soccer. But it seems the king may have fallen from his throne when he disappears–along with $73,000 of the youth soccer association’s registration fees.  Deuce calls foul and begins a bizarre search that leads him to a high-stakes gambling ring, a band of shrewd smugglers, and one heckuva Texas-sized mega church.  As he closes in on the truth, Deuce has only one goal in mind: stay on the ball and out of the penalty zone before his opponent can make a killer pass – and still have dinner ready on time.
