Peter Gent draws from his college sports days as a basketball star at Michigan State for this novel ... most people assume he was a football star or perhaps two-sport star but he only played basketball in college but switched to football once drafted by the Cowboys ...
the 'hero' in this story is middle-aged, worn-out, and the assistant coach to an old and more famous teammate for a successful college basketball program ... he's the coach that takes care of the little problems that continually crop up and keep his head coach looking like the hero everyone thinks he is ... but when a star player brutally rapes a girl on campus and everyone in the program and concerned about the program puts every effort into covering up the crime, years of covering up "smaller" incidents makes our hero find his conscience and follow it ... it's an all-out battle from there and from all sides as we find out a successful sports program is nearly always more important than, well, anything ...
this is another top notch effort by Gent ... highly recommended
