John J. Carroll's New Book 'What Did Ted Have?' Unravels a Great Read About an Unexpected Friendship and the Secrets Within

Recent release 'What Did Ted Have?' from Newman Springs Publishing author John J. Carroll is a thrilling novel that follows two individuals whose paths crossed upon joining a war not realizing that there is still the truth that is waiting to be revealed.

MILTON, Mass. - August 5, 2020 - (

​John J. Carroll, the director of public works in Lexington, MA, the commissioner of public works for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the town manager for Norwood, MA, has completed his new book “What Did Ted Have?”: a gripping and potent narrative about murder, warzones, justice, and friendships.

John writes, “It is Fenway Park after a Boston Red Sox game in mid-September 1941. Two middle-aged Irishmen and a fifteen-year-old son are leaving the ball park. A stranger asks the question, ‘What did Ted have?’ to find out what the slugger Ted Williams did at bat that day. While the son goes back to retrieve the scorecard, his father becomes the victim of a random shooting. The reader will quickly find out who pulled the trigger, but the police do not.

Three years after the shooting, the killer and the son of the murdered man meet, perhaps by fate, as soldiers preparing to go overseas to help end World War II. The two form a friendship that carries them through the Battle of the Bulge. Back home after the war, they become neighbors in the famously provincial section of South Boston known as Southie.

How will the truth be revealed? How can the killer, now a famous Boston police officer, confess to the murdered man’s son, to his wife, and to the public that he had accidentally shot and killed an innocent man outside Fenway Park so many years ago?”

Published by Newman Springs Publishing, John J. Carroll’s interesting tale is an adventure of sorts. With a complex plot that takes the readers from the field to the warzones across seas, this manuscript will surprise everyone with its twisted turns of events.

Readers who wish to experience this riveting work can purchase “What Did Ted Have?” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
