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 is a tough as they come and spiked with a touch of real class.” (Kirkus Reviews)
