Publisher's Summary

Spenser smells corruption in a college town. Taft University's hottest basketball star is shaving points for quick cash. All manner of sleaze -- from corrupt academics to hoods with graduate degrees -- have their fingers in the pot.Spenser's search takes him from lecture halls to blue collar bars and finally into a bloody confrontation with almost certain death. But Spenser saves an arrogant young athlete -- even though it nearly kills him to do it.

Spenser again.

The story was typical Spenser. The recording volume was low and uneven, and sounded like it was copied from tape (as it probably was).

What didn’t you like about Michael Prichard’s performance?
