Meet Drew Gavin, former college football star, now a wisecracking sportswriter who claims his drunken rut as a life. But that life changes at his class reunion when his old college sweetheart, Helen, lures Drew into trouble.
Helen is married to a wheeler-dealer lawyer named Freddie, imminently in danger of having his knee caps broken for gambling debts. Helen pleads for Drew's help. Playing the sucker, Drew goes to a bookie named Three Eyes to plead Freddie's case. Soon after, Freddie is found dead and Drew becomes the prime murder suspect.
"Smooth, swift and sure prose, diverting personal and locker-room intrigues, and easy-to-hate villains make this first title in a new series by the author of the Bubba Mabry series an exciting read." -- Library Journal
"This is a well-written, stylish noir caper in which Drew's smoldering passion for an old flame nearly costs him his life." -- Booklist
